{LIFESTYLE} Home decor trends that never fall out of fashion

Hi there and welcome, today’s guest post is in collaboration with And so to bed

Interior design trends are always changing, which can be frustrating when you’re trying to find the best furnishings and accessories for your home. You might feel like no sooner have you bought something for your property than it’s fallen out of fashion. There are certain styles that never seem to lose their charm though, and here are three of the best.

Statement four-poster beds

Many beds simply blend into the background, but this certainly can’t be said for statement four-posters. As bedroom furniture specialist And So To Bed points out, as well as offering impressive levels of comfort, these majestic pieces can be a feast for the eyes. They have been favored by discerning home designers for centuries and are now available in a range of materials, including solid wood and forged iron. From ornate, traditional designs that would have looked at home in a medieval monarch’s chamber to more minimalist, contemporary creations that have a pared back appeal, these features can add instant class and style to virtually any sleeping space.

Unlike many other furnishings, you can rest assured that if you invest in one of these pieces, it will remain firmly in vogue for as long as you care to keep it. Epitomising luxury and decadence, these beds have an unshakable style that helps to set them apart.

Country farmhouse kitchens

When it comes to kitchens, we’ve seen it all. From the lurid lino’s of the 1970s to the brushed metal of modern industrial-style cooking spaces, there have been plenty of different trends over the years. However, as these fads have come and gone, one style has always been there in the background and has never fallen from favor. A timeless classic, the country farmhouse kitchen is characterised by its use of warm, homely colors and rustic solid wood countertops and units. These designs look just as good today as they did decades ago. As an added bonus, this type of kitchen tends to be practical, easy to use and durable.

 Spa-look bathrooms

There has been no shortage of bad bathroom trends. From cheap and tacky laminate floors to colored bathroom suites, most of these design schemes are best forgotten. In contrast, one surefire way to create a bathroom with enduring style is to recreate that sense of spa luxury in your own home. With their satisfying curves and generous proportions, roll top baths can make the perfect addition to these spaces. Alternatively, a fully tiled wet room complete with rainfall shower might be ideal for your property. For enduring appeal, keep your colors neutral and make sure your design scheme sooths rather than shocks.

These are some of the ways you could vamp up your home with styles that do not go out of fashion.

What do you think of the idea of having a spa-like bathroom?

Any plans to decorate your home?

    Ahh…. Country Farmhouse Kitchen = my dream. I am SO not a country girl, but if I had endless amounts of money and a larger house, I would build that exact kitchen! And then never leave it!

    I would love to have a rustic looking farmhouse kitchen. I don’t think I will be able to maintain it though.

    All of these are wonderful picks! My favorite is the farmhouse kitchen. I hope hoping to get a country sink in the future.

    I always wanted to own a four-poster bed. Someday, if I have my own house, I will definitely get a four-poster bed and a spa-look bathroom! ^_^

    I love the spa like bathroom. I think my stress will go away when I take a dip and stay there to relax.

  16. April 26, 2015 / 7:04 am

    Love the bathroom & the kitchen except for the cow’s head… or is that a steer… no I could not look at the animal when I’m cooking. It’s just creepy.

    • April 26, 2015 / 7:21 am

      I was so focused on the beauty of the island didn’t even see the head on the wall lol

  17. April 26, 2015 / 5:53 am

    uhm spa look bathroom? yes please! that looks like a straight up hotel to me. haha i don’t think i’ve ever been inside a bathroom that looked that amazing in someones home yet.

    • April 26, 2015 / 7:20 am

      I think I love the bathroom more because it gives you the spa/hotel feel and I don’t know about you but I love hotels lol

  18. April 26, 2015 / 4:50 am

    I can’t decide which I liked best! I think the kitchen was so beautiful and truly functional. Especially in the kitchen, I believe that things that are functional must also be beautiful – you can’t be in the kitchen just taking up space because you’re cute!

    • April 26, 2015 / 7:19 am

      If I was to choose between the bathroom and kitchen I would keep the bathroom lol

  19. April 26, 2015 / 12:33 am

    I’m all over spa looking bathrooms, unfortunately our bathroom is very boxy and we can’t really do much to it. But maybe one day we can put in a kitchen island.

    • April 26, 2015 / 7:19 am

      It would be nice to have the bathroom or the kitchen island even for me

  20. April 25, 2015 / 2:43 pm

    That bathroom looks amazing. I really wish I could have one of these in the future.

    If I had the money (and owned a house) I would love a spa themed bathroom. I may never come out, but that’s besides the point.

    I love this post, it always inspires me and makes me want to go on pinterest. So pretty 🙂

    I love the bathroom, it looks gorgeous and is a lovely way of recreating a hotel style bathroom at home.

    • April 25, 2015 / 8:45 am

      It’s definitely a beauty, I wouldn’t want to leave my bathroom at all.
