Design your Santa Barbara home to be trendy and stylish

Posted on Dec 16, 2013

Just like clothing, decorating a home has its own wave of stylish trends. There are many different décor themes, furniture, styles and accessories that can be used to transform old décor into the latest and greatest trends. Design your Santa Barbara home in a way that will keep up with the newest trend, but also be unique to you and your personality.

The hottest trend this year, according to Elle Décor, has involved taking the indoors out. Give the exterior of your home an interior feel by setting the dining room up outside, creating gathering areas in the garden or setting large sofas around the pool. Another popular trend is to build an outdoor kitchen where families can gather while preparing a meal outside.

Theme your home. Select a theme that fits your personal style. Popular themes include Victorian touch, a night in Paris and European flare. Use neutral colors throughout the home and then use furniture, pillows, bowls, vases and frames in colors that pop to accent the theme of the room.

Go green. Turn your home into an eco-friendly oasis by using recycled materials and other green approved products.
