As with fashion trends, we see new trends emerging in home decor every few years, tempting us to update our homes, rather than change them entirely. This also happens in the decoration of the living room.
While trends change and evolve, they do so at different rates: some are popular for years but others for only a few seasons. For example, the Nordic trend has been with us for years and yet continues to surprise and delight. But there are also key colors that become the most important thing to decorate our homes.
