USE ART TO CREATE THE MOOD
Creating a certain type of atmosphere in your home often comes down to accessories. A simple and cost effective way to create a home where you can easily change the mood is to start with a simple neutral palette for your main pieces of furniture. Then use accessories to dramatic effect by selecting a feature piece of wall art.
The above is an example of how to capture that vintage style. Below you'll see you can create a tropical oasis by adding this dramatic and bold leaf print. The black background will help balance out any darker elements in your home against the white walls. This tropical print with the bold black is very on trend, so you can simply update your decor by switching your art, to create a totally new look.(Find more wall art here)

Often people feel compelled to have their home decor on trend, yet some of the most beautiful homes I've seen are a mix of styles that reflect the owners personality. A mix of old and new to give it a unique feel. A combination of styles that are in tune with the home owners nature.
Try mixing some of these up to create your own style.

If you like to keep it neutral these items will appeal to your aesthetic. They are a great base and will allow you to swap and add accents depending on the season or your mood.
This is a perfect example of a neutral palette overlayed with blue tones. You might like the neutral look but need a pop of colour (like me) so you can mix it up by adding some art and cushions and accessories in your chosen colour palette.
Earthy tones of wood, leather, plants and metal never go out of fashion. You can any of these accents to another style such as the Scandinavian look above to create your own mixed decor style.
A simple uncluttered contemporary look with a statement rug is a great way to add personality. You can collect a few rugs and swap them when the mood takes you.
