Simply add new materials to your mantel or highlight a fresh accent. You can have a contemporary fireplace with no major construction or price tag.

Tweed, which is simply tightly woven wool, gives your living room a sophisticated touch. It also works well with a variety of fabrics. You won't have to rework your entire space to incorporate trendy tweed.
Stainless steel has been accenting kitchen and bathrooms for the better part of a decade. Polished nickel had a run, too. Now it's time to make something old, new again.
Brass is the hot new trend in metal accents. It's warmer and more versatile than stainless steel. It's also less expensive while still giving off high class sophistication feels.
Don't follow the trends of last year, set the trends for years to come!

Add some shelves and fill them with small cacti. Or, get a big statement cactus for the middle of your room. Keep your home looking sharp in 2019!
