Making décor and furniture selections for your home can be a difficult decision. When decorating a new home, we are often faced with the desire to get all new furniture that is on trend with a particular look. And while you may be happy with your purchases in the short term you might grow tired of them as the trends change. A good rule of thumb is to select more traditional pieces for your major furniture purchases and incorporate trendy textiles and smaller decorative items that you can easily change later. A classic is a classic for a reason because it can stand the test of time. Another idea when decorating your home is to incorporate vintage pieces into your space. Giving an old piece new life in your space will add a one-of-a-kind style to your house, personalized to your own unique style. It is a piece that tells a story and is a greener option over buying new and let’s face it, a vintage piece will probably also outlast anything brand new from a big box store since it has already withstood 50-100 years plus, depending on the piece. In the end whatever you purchase, our suggestion is to take your time, don’t just rush in into hasty purchases you might regret later. Cultivate your pieces and make your house a home, honed to the needs and desires of yourself and your family, not the latest trends.
