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.


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.


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!

When most homeowners think of incorporating color into their homes with paint, they typically think of painting their walls. However, as this video points out, you can spread color around by painting other interior surfaces like the ceiling and even furniture. By painting items and spaces in your home, you bring a new element of the unexpected and create a style that is uniquely yours.

The key to adding color is to tie it together in a cohesive manner.
