Some people have more need for novelty than others and this attitude is reflected in the way of new home living, but the anxiety by change can sometimes play tricks.
According to the London designer Tricia Guild, there are little rules useful for finding balance and satisfy their desire for newness, valuing their homes without making mistakes that can help us achieve the opposite effect. This can be seemingly obvious, but it is not so.
Make small changes often
It is not necessary to do big jobs or revolutionize the whole home, often just very little to create a sense of news at home. For example different rugs for the entrance, bathroom and kitchen to be replaced at each change of season and time of year. Or a new piece of furniture from the particular style or a new framework to settle in somewhere where you want to shift your focus. But be careful not to overdo it, give yourself time to get used to living the change, don’t become a neurosis (also read 5 trends to follow in order to renew your home).
Use flowers and plants to bring life to the environments
We talked in this home and in 2017 trends flowers decorate and speak: decorate with flowers, but we never tire of reminding that plants are among the most beautiful pieces of furniture to bring news and life in any room of home. If you don’t think you have a green thumb, better start with plants that are easier to maintain as the Succulents (read also Corner green: Succulents in homes).
Play with colors, but without exaggeration
The colors bring liveliness and cheerfulness, but attention to hazardous combinations and juxtapositions between furniture and accessories. If you are not too confident that a color is right for your home, best to focus on neutral colors. If, instead, you want to be daring, focuses on trend colors and do not mix more than three.

Invest in artwork from emerging artists
This is the only point where you can actually join the party and dare. Art has no rules and doesn’t ask for anything other than to be liked and bought it. Our homes are filled with posters of works by renowned artists, instead of giving a chance to many new emerging artists who are appearing on the market. Art is one of the most inspiring and beautiful to invest (read also Furnish the House with artwork)
Use your imagination and colors, even in small spaces
Even if you live in a small house, doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice the ideas, indeed, is this the best condition to give oxygen to creativity and nurture a sense of practicality. Although in small spaces should be used preferably light colors for their power to broaden the perception of space, this does not mean that dark colors or vibrant is prohibited. More an environment is small, the more you need to make it cozy and warm. See also choose the sofa suitable for a small space.
Find a starting point
Whenever you have the desire to change, but don’t know where to start is necessary and urgent to find a starting point from which to start, otherwise you risk to remain motionless. Even the smallest things like buying a new plant, a magazine rack or a sofa covers, will pave the way for future innovations. Sometimes it is enough to start.
