Louisville Home Decorating Trends for 2010

Buying Louisville homes for sale allows new owners to make a fresh start and display their flair for decorating when it’s easiest to do it—without having to move and work around furniture and fixtures in the way. Furniture trends are moving away from dark finishes towards lighter, honey-colored tones that make rooms look and feel lighter and more spacious.

For wall prints, geometric patterns are en vogue, particularly bold patterns such as herringbone, ikats and Bargello designs that make a dramatic statement in any room. Other popular and trendy wall coverings getting a lot of exposure in decorating magazines include “new city brights” or rich, vibrant colors that add boldness and depth to any room. Another hot Louisville home decorating trend is maximizing the amount of natural light in every room, reducing dependence on artificial lighting during the day.

Author and design consultant Barbara Schirmeister said that common decorating themes where colors and textures are consistent are on their way out. “Matchy-matchy combinations are declining and unexpected pairings are escalating,” she says. She said that mixing new contemporary furniture with traditional home furnishings is hot right now, and people buying Louisville homes are incorporating these styles in unusual and unexpected ways.

While these decorating themes are hot in Kentuckiana and elsewhere, when shopping for a Louisville home, buyers want anything but unusual and unexpected results. That’s why more turn to Louisville Properties when looking for Louisville homes for sale.
