Updating your home decor is a good New Year’s tradition. Sometimes, in order to refresh the interior, it is enough to integrate a couple of new chairs, a lamp or interesting textiles into the space. How to transform any interior with the help of basic solutions and current trends – tips from the DesignBoom team.
Natural lines for your interior
Contemplation of nature always has a beneficial effect on the physical and emotional state of a person: it stimulates vitality and calms the nervous system. The use of natural lines in the interior creates coziness and gives a feeling of comfort. The trend of smoothing sharp corners, creating ergonomic shapes can be traced in the shapes of chairs, rounded tabletops, emphasized streamlined lamps.
The virtual world has long gone beyond the digital framework and penetrates into other areas of our lives, including the interiors of apartments. This is noticeable in furniture of the simplest rectangular shape, as if “beaten into pixels”, in bright colors that are almost never found in nature, as well as in the abundance of abstract primitive forms in patterns.

With glass elements
The use of glass furniture is one of the most popular trends among designers, because glass is universal: items made of this material do not overload the space, and, if desired, can become an expressive accent. The tempered glass top and base make a coffee or coffee table weightless and almost dissolve it in space. The mirrored canvas on the surface of the table, on the contrary, turns it into a central element of decor and creates a festive atmosphere in the room.
Graphic black in your interior
Black in small quantities creates beautiful graphic lines and structures the space. This color can be used both as a basis for creating a monochrome interior, and as an addition to a bright, expressive space. Larger forms with their solid and reliable appearance create a cozy, intimate atmosphere in the room. Black in abstract prints draws attention with a slow-motion dynamic that matches the seasonal mood.
Holiday textiles and your interior
New Year’s tablecloth, path and napkins may differ in color, material and texture. A ceremonial reception requires a classic white tablecloth or plain textiles in the lightest pastel shades. For an informal setting, prints in traditional red and green tones or original table jacquard with fabulous patterns are good.
About special serving
Plain white dishes help emphasize the design of festive dishes. To create a Christmas atmosphere, items in white and red colors with bright themed prints are suitable. And serving in an actual natural style will help to create plates and salad bowls of dark colors.
And the game of light
Lighting in the interior plays one of the primary roles: cold light helps to increase concentration, and warm light helps to relax after a working day and have a good rest. A new table lamp, a stylish interior garland or a lampshade with subdued diffused light will not only change the perception of familiar objects, but will also become independent elements of a festive decor.
And cheers at home
The first impression of a house is always its smell. It should not be harsh and intrusive, because otherwise the aromas will provoke excessive activity, and sometimes even annoy. When choosing, focus on natural and pleasant seasonal notes: spices, citrus fruits, pine needles, pastries, exotic fruits, vanilla.
We paint in advance
In the subconscious, the New Year holidays are closely associated with childhood, a sense of security and pleasant nostalgia. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself wanting to start decorating and planting a Christmas tree in early December. The festive atmosphere in the interior will make the expectation of the most magical time of the year even more pleasant and joyful.
