When you think about it, it makes perfect sense: after the impact of COVID over the last two years, those ready for a new look in their manufactured homes are turning to design trends that make them feel more secure and more comfortable.
Most of us have spent more time in our homes than we’re accustomed to doing, especially during all those months when everything was closed. Factor in the uncertainty of when the next virus variant will arrive and all the other divisive news stories, and the need for a home that appears warm and welcoming has never been greater.
Thinking of making some changes? Here are some ideas to help you get started.
There’s something reassuring about looking back at the past, and incorporating some antique items within your décor that conjure up happy memories. Think about items you recall from your childhood, or from visits to your grandparents’ home. It could be something as small as kitschy salt and pepper shakers from the 1960s, or as grand as a room filled with second-hand furniture in vintage styles.
We associate green with the outdoors, and that’s a place that hasn’t been as accessible to many of us for a while. Adding green leafy house plants is one way to get back to nature, but many homeowners are taking it a step further – paint companies including Sherwin-Williams, Benjamin Moore, PPG, and others named a shade of green as the top color trend for the coming year. Match it with a plush throw or bedspread and you may never need to go outside again.
How does “warm” translate into design? It could be in a choice of fabrics, or layered textures. It could be in a warmer color palette of tans, soft pinks or other neutrals. It could be in lighting that can be dimmed to set a more relaxed mood. Everyone associates warm and cozy with different looks and different styles. Find the one that best suits your family.
