Decor Becoming More Popular with Less-is-More

Home decor is undergoing a delicate change, thanks to the weakened economy and the trend toward smaller but better-quality homes.

As houses are downsized, homeowners are forced to make do with less space and fewer possessions, and in this uncertain economy, many homeowners are reluctant to spend lavishly on new furnishings.
 
Another sign of tough economic times impacting interior-design trends: Homeowners are reluctant to throw out all their old furnishings and start from scratch when they build or remodel, they way they did a decade ago.

Old things are mixed with new and many styles are being brought together in an eclectic way.  New decor doesn’t evoke any particular period or style. It’s more a matter of bringing the past into the present and making it fresh with new colors, accessories and art work.

People also want the less-cluttered, cleaner look they see in magazines.
