When shopping for furniture and accessories with which to create a home décor, you should focus your search on pieces that reflect your personality. If you want your interior design to be unlike any other, you should find pieces that complement your personal aesthetic. Use the following tips to choose decorative features that give you a completely unique home décor:

Do Not Stick to One Style

Mixing and matching furniture styles helps you create a distinctly unique foundation onto which you can add fun and stylish accessories. Do not limit yourself to one style of furniture while you shop. Instead, you should choose any piece that catches your eye. Let your creative vision wander freely as you browse through the consignment furniture store and buy pieces from a wide variety of genres.

Connect Pieces through Color and Pattern

If you are choosing furniture from a few different décor styles, you can tie them together with color and pattern. Determine the color scheme that you want for your space and choose furniture and accessories that encompass it in some format. When you decorate according to color and pattern, you can find pieces that no one else has to start building your unique décor.

Shop at Stores with a Bigger Selection

Instead of shopping at a large chain store that carries the same pieces throughout the country, focus your search on places like consignment stores that always have a new selection of one-of-a-kind furniture pieces that you can use to create your unique décor. When you always have access to new great furniture and accessory finds, it is easy to create any kind of interior design.

Essential Elements for a Contemporary Living Room

Essential Elements for a Contemporary Living Room

Whether you are moving into a new house or you are looking to redecorate your current home, the living room is the center of activity and should be decorated as such. You can spruce up your old or outdated décor by shopping at a consignment store for unique, contemporary furniture. Even if your decorating style is eclectic or retro, there are still a few elements you’ll need for a contemporary look. Keep reading to learn what the essential elements are for a contemporary living room.

Comfortable Seating

In the past, the living room was a more formal area used mostly for entertaining guests or on special occasions. That has changed in today’s modern times, however, and living rooms are becoming more and more usable and welcoming. In order to make your living room inviting, you’ll need to find comfortable seating for you, your family, and your guests. Start with a larger piece of furniture such as a couch or sofa, and create a plan around that. You can add a loveseat if you have space, or a few side chairs and ottomans for a versatile and movable seating arrangement.

Storage

If you’re planning on using your living room a fair amount, it’s a good idea to have storage set up to avoid excessive clutter. Check at your local consignment store for a coffee table with drawers where you can store your remotes, or look for a bookshelf that can hold your favorite novels as well as a few knick-knacks. When everything has a designated place, you can easily clean up your space when you have a surprise guest come over.

Lighting

Your living room won’t be of much use to you if you have to squint to see the book you’re reading. Even if you have overhead lighting, think about acquiring a few lamps on consignment to give the room a warm, cozy glow.

Interior Design Trends in 2013 Brought to You By The Home Consignment Center

Interior Design Trends in 2013

Whether you’re looking to completely change your decorating style or simply enhance your home décor, there are plenty of trends to choose from in 2013. This year, interior designers are using bright, saturated hues throughout their clients’ homes in order to create sleek, modern looks. Even if you aren’t working with an interior designer, there are easy ways that you can incorporate these new interior design trends into your own home.

Use “Touchable” Textures

In the past, people focused on the functionality of an item before bringing it into their homes. This means that they placed less emphasis on the type of material used in their chairs, sofas, and tables. Today, more people desire objects made of materials that inspire warmth and comfort. Many homeowners are experimenting with a variety of textures like suede and wood to help bring dimension to different spaces.

Incorporate Stripes

One of the simplest ways to bring energy to a room is by using colorful, elegant stripes. Striped carpets, wallpapers, upholstery, and art can all bring a sense of movement into a space without being overwhelming. A popular stripe pattern this year features red, black, and white. The key to preventing this design trend from being overwhelming is restricting the pattern to just one surface or area of a room.

Choose Floral Patterns

Floral patterns are frequently popular, but in 2013, designers are concentrating on placing floral patterns on white backgrounds. Using this trend can help enhance a room’s décor by adding a romantic touch. Even though white backgrounds are popular this year, you may want to consider using floral patterns against other solid backgrounds.

At the Home Consignment Center, our items are priced fairly from the beginning so that our customers are confident that they’re getting a fair deal. We have several locations throughout California, including Newport Beach and Calabasas. You can speak to the friendly staff at our Newport Beach store by dialing (949) 250-0326.

 

The Home Consignment Center Gives The Latest Interior Design Trends in 2013

Antique Drawer Pull

Does your interior décor leave something to be desired? As you look around your home, think about when you purchased your furniture and accessories. If your couch is looking a little tired or that loveseat is a bit threadbare, now is the perfect time to update your home and buy new furniture. There are many design trends this year that can work with your existing décor, and all it takes is a trip to a consignment store to get the freshest looks in home design.

Brass

If you have always shied away from any metallic accents in your interior design, consider sprucing up your space with brass accessories and brass-accented furniture. Brass is timeless and classy, and adds an element of elegance without going overboard or being gaudy. Adding a sofa with brass feet can be a stylish and subtle way to update your interior design for 2013.

Art

Your living room furniture isn’t the only important part of your home décor. Remember that what you hang on your walls can greatly affect the overall feel of your space. Choose pieces that are size-appropriate for the room and are in proportion with your other decorations. Stay on-trend by grouping smaller frames together for a unified look, or let a larger piece stand alone as a point of interest. You can find affordable art at consignment stores and swap out your wall decorations every season!

Upscale Rec Rooms

Many people think of rec rooms as the place to shove older, worn-out furniture, rugs, and electronics. For this year, think about giving your rec room a design boost by adding affordable furniture you find at a consignment shop. If you improve the aesthetic of your rec room, you’ll have another place to entertain guests and will be able to host your very own game night!

You can find many of the hottest interior design trends for your home when you shop at the Home Consignment Center. Call us at (925) 272-0067 to learn about our current inventory of furniture and accessories, or visit one of our five Bay Area locations today!
