A new year brings new interior design and décor trends. Take a look at some of the hottest ways to decorate your living room and update your design space for 2019.

Boho Is Back

Boho, or Bohemian style, never truly went away, but it’s certainly coming back full force in 2019. This décor style incorporates elements that are particularly interesting, full of life, or from different cultures. It embraces the unusual, the carefree, and the relaxed, inspired by those who lead unconventional lives, such as writers, travelers, and actors. If you’re interested in incorporating Boho style into your living room, start by combining patterns, colors, and objects from many parts of the world and walks of life.

No two Boho-style rooms are exactly the same, although they may share some design elements and cues. You’ll

House with Frank Lloyd Wright-approved design finds new life

GREENWOOD, Ind. — The treasures are in the small details.

Glass aquarium corners in the Harry Cooler Conference Center give the sense of stepping into the outdoors and looking out over the wooded land around it, even while staying indoors. Ingeniously designed window placements and skylights allow for ample natural light but never overwhelming direct sunlight.

Interior Design History: Decorating Styles Through the AgesBuildDirect Blog: Life at Home

Reading Time: 2 minutes

For as long as humanity has been a species, we’ve decorated.

From the ancient cave-paintings of our hunter-gatherer ancestors, to the fluted columns of early Western civilization, to modernist architecture into the 20th century, and now to 21st Century eclecticism, we’ve taken pride in our homes and in our communities by celebrating the wonders of aesthetics and practical design.

Are there any common threads in the history of interior design and exterior design? What have the Ancient Egyptians got in common with the Art Deco cities of the 1920s jazz age? And what design elements are we utilizing today in the bright and shining 21st Century that echo our illustrious interior design and architectural past?

Well, I hope that this brief history of design will shed some light on where we’ve come from, and where we’re going.

Take a look!
