Summer Decor Accent Trends

Decorating accents are the perfect way to keep your home's style up to date with the latest decor trends without doing a complete makeover. I've found the top decor accents that have been making their way into living rooms, bedrooms and even bathrooms lately.
Have any these accents made their way into your home yet?


Decor Accent Gold

Gold is one of those colours that never quite goes away, it just pops up in new forms. Well this year gold is everywhere! It's metallic finish gives a bold look to any accent piece, making it stand out. Because it's so lively, we're seeing gold in smaller pieces and pulled into designs in smaller pattersn such as polka dots. It's a little touch of glamour. 

If you're looking to incorporate some gold accents into your living room, try adding something small to your mantle, or a shimmery throw pillow on your sofa. Or if you're looking for more of a statment, try a gold-legged coffeetable. This metallic goes great with white and grey neutrals, and it's a great way to add some contrast to natural woods.


Decor Accent Marble

We're used to seeing marble in homes: kitchen counters, vanity tops, upgraded floors. But now, marble is making its way into homes on a smaller scale. Marble is being used to add a luxurious pop in unexpected places. You can find great marble accents to pull into your decor scheme in the form of coasters, vases, serving boards and even cell phone cases (okay, so the cell phone case isn't real marble, but it's a trendy pattern to carry around). Marble accents are great because they are neutral and flow with almost any colour scheme.

Statement Mirrors

Decor Accent Statement Mirror

When it comes to expressing ourselves through decor, an opportunity that is often overlooked is the mirror. Lots of homes use mirrors to open a space, add light and for its obvious job, showing us our beautiful faces. Rather than sticking to basic rectangle or oval mirror, search for a statement piece.

The bathroom is the perfect place for this trend. Find a mirror with a pop of colour or a unique shape. It's an easy way to modernize any space.


Decor Accent Pineapples

Yes, I said it. Pineapples. This year pineapples are not longer just for tasty treats and pina colodas. The fun fruit is being transformed into decor accents such as coasters, cookie jars and even lamps. If you're not ready to commit to a lifesize pineapple in your living room, you can add a Summery throw pillow with a bright pineapple print.

I've even seen a few gold pineapples. Double decor trend!
