Top Trends to Inspire Your Decor at The Harrison

May 24, 2019

Whether you’re just moving in, replacing a few pieces or completely overhauling your current decor, we’ve gathered some inspiration to help you create a beautiful, welcoming home at The Harrison.

1. A Touch of Greenery

We’re talking living, growing, need-a-bit-of-loving plants. Sure, high-quality faux plants may look as great as the real thing, but you’re missing out on one of the best qualities of the real deal: air purification. For those of us without the gift of a green thumb, we can still find plants that are much less needy and more forgiving than most. A few great options that can survive just about anything are snake plants, succulents, cacti and bamboo palms.

2. Comfortable Minimalism

The current minimalist movement involves putting function at the forefront. Elevate your space with simple furniture pieces that offer comfort without sacrificing style. We love a desert- or beach-inspired palette with wood tones accented by shades of white/sand and warm pastels.

3. Shades of White

White is the color of cleanliness, serenity and openness. It’s the perfect color with which to make a safe, calm space—if you use it correctly. Achieve this trend using a balance of cream, off-white, light gray, light tan and muted pastels. Use plants (see above), wood accents, or metallics to add a touch of color to the space. Or, just open your curtains and let the the bay bring all the color you need into your home.

4. Mixed Metals

According to current decor trends, it’s okay to play with different metals inside your home. Your kitchen may have stainless steel appliances, but that doesn’t mean you can’t accent the space with a gold teapot or copper pots and pans. Play with different metals as you see fit.

5. Floral Accents

To contrast the sleek, industrial vibe of the city, we love adding a soft, floral accent to a room. An easy yet temporary way to do this is by placing a bouquet of fresh flowers in a vase on a table or countertop. But, since flowers don’t bloom forever, a more permanent way to get that soft effect is through fabric (pillows or throws) or via a wall accent (wallpaper, a framed photo or painting, or another art piece). Set the mood by choosing a strategic color palette.
