Wall Color

If you’re one of those people who like to go all-in with trends, try painting your walls classic blue. It’s the statement you’re home needs and if you want to be a bit less bold, throw in some neutral color wall decor pieces.

Kitchen Cabinets

Don’t forget about your kitchen when you redecorate your home. This color looks great in kitchens as it’s classic and pairs well with wooden details. Paint your cabinets blue and keep some white details to balance it out.


Accent Pieces

No home is complete without some eye-catching accent pieces. Accent pieces work well if you aren’t 100% committed to the trend. They’re a great way to experiment and there are so many options to choose from whether it’s floor pillows, throw blankets, lights, or wall decor.
