How to Add Style to Your Suburban Home[Tips to make your Suburban home look Trendy]
My Partner and I are suburban home owners for 10 Years now. When I see that the only homes being showcased on social media are either multi-million dollar mansions or century-old homes full with antique character and charm or City Apartments and Dorms.
There is a noticeable absence of Decor ideas for the homes in the suburbs. If you’ve ever wondered what life is like for those of us who don’t live in a contemporary castle or an ancient cottage, you’re not alone.
As a result, the brilliant concept of Trendy Suburban Home Decor or better “Trendy Suburbia decor was born at peplifestyle Blogs.
My partner and I have a lovely suburban home in Berwick, Victoria, Australia’s Greater Melbourne area. My husband and I have a Cavoodle puppy and a young daughter.
When it comes to hobbies, my hubby has always had a strong interest in art (both digitally and traditionally), automobiles, outdoor fun and drones; I’m more interested in home decor, pets and blogging.
The Suburban Homes need not be just Normal , but they should and can be Trendy and stylish.My aim in these blogs is to help suburban Home owners to make their home look chic and trendy . I don’t say on a Budget but rather say for all budgets.
I mean to say, many a times people have some extra money to spend on home decor and many a times they don’t have. However, The ideas are for all budgets from Frugal to High-end.
What do I mean by that?
For instance, when I say cool Trendy vase that cost $790 on Belle & June or Pottery Barn, there could be another ( not the same or similar) trendy and inexpensive Vase on Amazon Or target for just $50.
In my blogs I give you ideas on what would be essential to make your Suburban home trendy and stylish whether you spend $800 or $50.
Then you can decide what you want to get for your home.
There is no right or wrong when it comes to Home decor.You can keep your inexpesnive $50 Vase as the statement piece and decorate your room around it.

1.Decorate / Style One Room at a time
Unlike the Apartments , the suburban homes have the luxury of having many extra rooms.Like for instance,in our Suburban Home we have Four bed-rooms, One Rumpus near the staircase,One study room, One Theatre room, Two Living rooms, two bath rooms , One Powder room and a Huge car Garage for 2 cars. Plus, a big backyard and front yard.
I get you. Too many rooms and styling takes money and time.
So, my Super Tip is to to start one room at a time. Whenever I want to re do decorations I pick one room a time.This helps me focus on one theme per room or even one Colour theme for a room.
Recently we decorated our Theatre room and my duaghters room. I will plan to do Home tour soon.
2.To Begin, Place a Rug
To begin , in any room place a fluffy rug or any eyecatching piece.. If you place a rug first, work around your rug , its colour and contrast.
One of our all-time favourite rugs is from Belle & June because it’s understated but features some really gorgeous dark Grey tones.
The chilly Greys in this living room were so important to us, so we paired them with complementing fabrics and artwork.
The couches are of the same dark grey however there is splash of orange on the walls that is creating a great contrast.
There are many ways you can dress up any room, but one of the most common is to use an area rug as an accent. With these soft rugs, you don’t have to buy new furniture or spend a lot of money to improve your home. With a simple rug, you may add colour and texture to your home while also enhancing your other decor.
3.Choose a Color theme
Choose a Color theme and stick to it for every room.Changing the color of your room can have a profound effect on how it feels.
There is a distinct personality to each colour, so experiment to your heart’s content with the one that best expresses your innermost thoughts and feelings. Take a look around this room.
Everything in the room is neutral, but I’ve used light pastel blue linen as an accent colour to create a cosy and welcoming atmosphere.
4.Get a layout
Choosing a plan that works for your needs is especially important if you’re working with a small or oddly-shaped room.
Narrowing your choices and getting started in the right path is easier when you have particular furniture pieces in mind.
It was clear that we wanted to have one Big and Long theatre couch, we did it get it. However, we got a dark grey one, while we were looking for a off-white/Cream one.We needed to change the couch setup from grey to Yellow pillow covers.
5. Begin with an Eye-Catching Statement Piece
A single dramatic piece can serve as the inspiration for an entire space.
Our cool wall art served as the beginning point for this living room, and the rest of our selections reflected theBlue and Pink sofa , Pillow and Throw rug.
A Grey geometric print on the rug , as well as dark grey and white wall art, complemented the wall arts futuristic design.
The Eye catching centre piece could be anything from vases, to wall art to couches.
Some fo the coolest Vases we have seen on reels recently that are eye catching.
Gaia Vase - Minimal Modern Vase
To celebrate Mother Earth’s Day, Gaia was inspired by the symbol of palms interlocking to form the Earth. In order for our fingers to fit perfectly into the mould when carrying it, the base was made in the same way.

6.Display decors in sets of Three..
Well, yes! this works.
Rearrange pieces on your mantel or shelves to achieve a more pleasant aesthetic layout.
By and large, odd-number groupings are more intriguing than even-number ones.
Arrange frames or objects in groups of three or five for a visually appealing display.
7.Display your family Pictures
Bring a few Pic Frames down from the attic to help you celebrate.
Floating cabinets Or the benchtops should include no more than one or two interesting items.
A few well-chosen items can be a lovely addition to your home’s decor, rather than an eyesore.
8.Decorate your Coffee Table with Books
There is a certain look to Coffee table books decor that is now in Home decor mags, and these pieces does a great job of capturing that look.
They may be bundled and displayed on coffee tables in your living room, set on a bar cart, or even propped up on side table in your bed room for a more contemporary look!
It doesn’t matter how you show them, you’ll be infatuated with them!!
9. Stylish Console tables
According to well-known interior designers and design schools, getting few hallway tables is ALWAYS a great idea.
A gorgeous hallway table not only improves the look of your decorations and photographs, but it also opens up and increases the space available in your hallway.
However, owing to a rush of new manufacturers, hallway tables are now relatively affordable for the first time.
As an alternative to purchasing an expensive hallway table, I explored charity shops for a low-cost option and finished it with a gold rub and buff to give it a “expensive” appearance.
10. Wall Art prints
Whether you’re re-decorating your home or simply adding a few finishing touches, framed prints are a common sight.
80 percent of the pins on my board are images of fashionable wall prints, and I’m OK with that.
There is a certain look to wall prints that is now in fashion mags, and this piece does a great job of capturing that look.
11.Get some white Planters
I must tell you, I’m currently obsessed with a Large White Planters decorating my Home.
At the moment, I’m kind of divided between my plants and the containers in which I keep them. Having said that, as I have learned, large white modern planters are the ideal EXTRA CHIC addition for practically any home.
12.Decorative Pillows for your Couch
It’s hard to choose between all the different decorative Pillows out there in the world of Internet…. but I love how this one manages to be both classic and modern at the same time! It’s incredibly versatile.
