Home Living : September 27th 2011
HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, September 27, 2011 1 HOMELIVING Decorating with cents JANITA SINGH Look for home accessories with a global theme or feel. THIS spring is all about making smart choices. Colourful accessories, comfortable additions and working within a budget is what many homeowners will strive for. Accessories are big this season but home decoration is predicted to be on a small budget. Economic hardship and the high cost of living will see us returning to family activities and preserving what we already have. Financial stress has people nostalgic for times past. The spring colours of 2011 have an aged, heirloom quality to them and will be applied with distressed or antique finishes. Aged greens, smoky blues and earth browns in paint and fabric are going to be huge. In home accessories, look for patterns and colours with a global or tribal theme or feel. These include native American and Aboriginal designs and patterns in everything from dinnerware and drapery to bold geometric rugs, cushions and throws. While decorating, many homeowners will also keep in mind energy efficiency. Looking at thermal window treatments, insulation for windows and patio doors, energy-saving cooling devices will get the thumbs up. It's still possible to update your home during tough economic times. The answer lies in smarter ways of making a difference.
