2008 Decorating trends - Boutique hotel style

Filed Under: home decor

room that needs re-decoratingI don't spend a lot of time in upscale hotel suites, so learning that the 2008 trends in home decorating will follow a boutique hotel style didn't mean a whole lot to me. Still, the more I read about these design techniques the more interested I am. You can achieve that rich, eclectic New York style at home. This article tells us how. The idea that stands out for me is mixing and matching furniture styles. That plain, simple, and matching look that you'll find in most current living-rooms is fading out in favor of more adventurous styles.

Mixing furniture style, and choosing different but complimenting pieces will give your room added character. Choose a variety of wood textures and don't be afraid of mixing new with antique. Use bold colors and patterned fabrics wisely, but don't shy away from them. If you want to highlight something, go ahead.

With tips on hiding your big ugly TV and bringing color into your rooms, these ideas will have you living in hotel style in no time.
