If your home features trends from the 90’s and early 2000’s, it may be time to freshen up your look. Check out our rundown of some of the ‘not so in’ styles and how you can make your humble abode stay on trend.

Tuscan Kitchens

Dark rich woods, bulky fixtures and heavy granites were very popular in the early 2000’s. However, the modern day kitchen now focuses on open spaces and light, airy colors as opposed to a dark Italian-Style aesthetic.

This year we are seeing less neutrals and more bright, bold colors schemes trending in home design — and right now we are living for Emerald Green across the Emerald Coast.

Deep and dark green hues are a big hit in the interior design market this year and we can't get enough. You can incorporate this accent color into your home with furnishings like a statement couch, a throw blanket or accent pillows. Want something a little more bold?

3. A Room With a View
Setting your desk up with a window view is ideal, but not always possible. If you're work space is set up facing a wall, try hanging some framed pictures and bold prints for some inspiration!
