Play with colors

You can paint walls or choose decor to instantly change your home. In choosing colors, remember the shades that are popular for this year. Peaches recommends Marsala (Pantone color of the year) and blue, alongside clean whites, smoky neutrals, and muted pastels.

Reupholster old furniture

“Reduce, reuse, and upcycle” should be your mantra for 2015. Be kind to the environment by working with the furniture that you already have. Peaches suggests reinventing your old, outdated pieces with new fabric and fresh coats of paint.

Choose nature-inspired elements

Peaches and Aiza agree that we will see a lot of “green” wallpaper and fabric. For a bright and refreshing appeal, decorate your home with leaf-patterned wallpaper and floral-printed furniture pieces.

Mix, don’t match!

Peaches says that the eclectic style will be in this year. She adds that homeowners should have fun with mismatched patterns, textures, and materials for their space. You can also pair different metal finishes like gold, brass, and copper for a chic and unexpected look.
