A few months ago you got in touch with a real estate agency like Engel & Völkers. You saw a new-build property in Barcelona that would be perfect for you and decided to buy it. Now the time has come to collect the keys from the real estate agent. This is when you should start thinking about how to decorate your new home. Do you know how to make the right choice?
White Always Works
The colour white might appear too bright, however, it is always a safe choice for the walls and furniture. It is best to try to combine it with other more vivid and striking tones to avoid making your home look boring or bland.
For example, take the opportunity to bring more vitality to your interior decor by choosing red and green, the two most popular colours this winter and spring. Always include these colours in textiles and, preferably, in the cushions, sheets, duvet covers, bedspreads, and curtains. Floral prints are also more fashionable than ever and will provide the freshness that your home needs.
Open-Plan Kitchens Set the Trend
Maximising spaces is a key concept in the framework of the latest decoration trends. In fact, the kitchen has replaced the dining room as the main room of the house. For this reason, the open-plan ones, preferably equipped with an island, should be your top choice.
The kitchen island offers, on the one hand, a perfect space for cooking and, on the other, a space where family members or friends can get together to have a chat and enjoy a pleasant evening. In addition, open-plan kitchens provide a greater sense of space and combine perfectly with the other rooms of the house.
Candles for lighting ... and decoration
It is clear that LED lights have become very popular for new homes. However, to bring more warmth and cosiness to the rooms, opt for candles instead. In this way, you will not only save money on your electricity bill, but you will also add a touch of colour to those places that need it most.
Another plus point to using candles, especially the fragrant ones, is that they help you create the atmosphere you want in your new home. Keep in mind that aromas add a cosy feeling to your home and they are the key elements that enhance your home's character.
Also, do not miss the chance to use both indoor and outdoor plants for the terrace and the living room. These are becoming increasingly popular in the world of home decoration so they are a great option.
In summary, if you follow these tips you can be sure that your new home in Barcelona will be decorated to your liking and based on the latest interior decoration trends.
