chic-decor

Is your home decor getting you down? If you’ve had the same look since “Roseanne” went off the air (the first time), it might be time to think about a change.

Don’t worry—we’re not talking a major reno here. We’re not even talking about painting your walls or getting all new furniture. Believe it or not, a few stylish decor accessories and accent pieces may be all you need to spruce up your space.

Not convinced? TC Chou, a founding partner at Design Determination in New York City, swears that small additions throughout your home can truly transform your vibe.

“Classic touches never die,” he says. “Lighting, art, and life in a room can be a simple addition that alter the energy and style of any space.”

We asked Chou and other designers for their top home accessory recommendations for the entryway, bathroom, living room, and beyond. Here’s what they recommend to step up your style in 2018.

Try the Joss & Main Lecoy Floor Vase ($83) or Anthropologie’s Kupia Handpainted Vase Set ($58) and instantly upgrade any coffee or entry table.

2. Nature-inspired bath mats

Bold bathrooms with bright colors and out-there tiles were big in 2017. This year, however, is all about creating a tranquil, spa-like oasis.

“The gleam from brass fixtures along with bold graphic tiles in bathrooms is no longer trending,” says Stephan Jones, an interior designer in Los Angeles and Chicago. “Bathrooms should feel like a calming space.”

To get the look, he recommends a bath mat made from materials straight from nature. Try the Bed Bath and Beyond Bamboo Bath Mat ($26) or Wayfair VivaTerra Riverstone Bath Rug ($75).

3. U-shaped chairs
