jewelry trends

We hope you’re all set to welcome maximalist jewelry. If you paid close attention to spring 2019 runways, you might have received the hint that all larger-than-life accessories are making a comeback.

More good news: ahead, a roundup of jewelry trends to know in 2019. Read on.

Chain link Necklaces

Chain-link necklaces aren’t new age-y. Remember the 80’s where LL Cool J nailed heavy gold Dookie chains? Now that we’re in the second month of 2019, know this: Chunky chain link necklaces are on the rise. Chunky, layered up, a mix of large and small links … there are plenty of ways to rock this edgy fashion trend.

Seashell Jewels

When was the last time you wore shells on the necklace? Back in the ’90s? Fast forward to 2019: the Insta feeds and Spring runways clearly indicate shells are making a comeback – in many stylish variations like chokers, earrings, cuff, necklace, and more. Rosie Assoulin’s Red Corkscrew Shell Earrings or Dolce & Gabbana’s gold shell earrings – which one goes first into your seashell jewelry collection, this year?

Half-moon hoop earrings

Hoops still in fashion? Of course, but with chunkier and bulkier shape! If you’re headed out and love to call more attention to your pretty face, wear crescent-hoop earrings. Valentino and Ulla Johnson model have already shown how to rock the half-moons. Your turn now!

Gemstone Clusters

We’ve been waiting for eye candy colors for so long…and, finally, they’re here – the rainbow gemstone clusters! Think a stack of deepest sapphires and subtle morganites, next time you go for jewelry shopping. Trust us, the gemstones look even gorgeous together.

Open cuff necklace

As edgy jewelry, choker still reigns supreme but fashion-forward gals are all for open cuff necklace. Exuding feminine vibes, we’ve seen how this choker’s cousin took the center stage when Fendi and Dior introduced them (We’re in love with Fendi’s blue-green-orange enamel jewelry).

Feel Fresh Florals

Spring and summer without flowers – Nah, not possible! So, here’s another trend we’re going to see more and more in 2019 – larger-than-life floral earrings, bracelets, and necklaces. A little extravagant, a lot ‘floral’, daisies and other floral cuts are all set to shake Insta feeds up.

Chunky Rings

Layering delicate rings is a thing of the past. We saw chunky geometric metal rings becoming increasingly sought after in the spring/summer runways.

Logo Jewelry

And you thought the logo trend is over long back? Nope, it is still going strong and shows no signs of fading. In fact, it just entered in the accessory department. The intricate logo jewelry was explicit at Chanel, with yellow bracelets and multi-chain necklaces boasting the name. What’s more, Dior and Balenciaga have also made their presence in the ‘logo’ game.

Chunky Bracelets

For the ones who don’t like piling and stacking bracelets anymore! The chunky bracelets made from a solid plastic piece or embellished with colored stones catches more eyeballs. Need proof? Wear a clear, chunky bracelet over the long-sleeved top and see for yourself.

Home Decor Ideas for Living Room

decorating the living room

You spend a good bit of time in the living room, so it not only needs to look inviting, but it needs to be functional and relaxing. Infusing all three things may seem impossible, but we’ve got some ideas to make the impossible possible.

Cool Colors

For the record, a lot can go wrong if the paint color doesn’t jell with the décor theme and layout. Matchy-matchy and the edgy color palette are 2018. 2019 is all about optimistic greens, earthy terracotta, millennial pink, almost-whites and more. And if you want cool color combos to add more visual interest, try your hands at Bright Berry + Deep Mustard, Neon Yellow +Turquoise + Slate Gray, Copper + Teal, or Kelly Green + Bright Red.

Aqua in combination with hues of orange and blue is another popular combination that promises dreamy and soothing canvas for the living room.

Let the furniture float

Establish furniture islands if you have a spacious living room rather than creating L’s and U’s. But if you have square footage limitation, go for U-shaped or flanked seating arrangement. And yes, no bulkier modular sofas or love-seat in small living area; armchairs, please.  Not only do they take small space but add charm and fluidity to your small living room.

Creative Illumination

Be it natural or artificial, lights tie everything together to create a warm ambiance. Glass chandeliers look gorgeous in living rooms with high ceiling and minimal wall art whereas elegant lanterns or modern pendant lights hung in a group can cheat the eyes. A great pair of wall-mounted sconces can also be used to highlight the architectural and decor elegance. Don’t like to hurt the ceilings and walls? Bring in floor lamps!

Don’t neglect the dead corner

Not all dead corners are meant to be untouched. So, how do you transform it into an inviting spot? How about setting up a reading corner, a corner fireplace or a wall mounted floating shelf? What’s your thought on a mini bar set up at the empty dead corner in your living room? Think it over! 

Bring in Boho Vibes

At some point or another, we bet you’ve come across copious prints, layers on layers, vintage metallics, worn woods or rumpled fabrics balancing the living room. Turns out, there’s a name for them: BOHEMIAN or BOHO-CHIC. And, if you prefer an eclectic but free-flowing living room, boho-chic has many choices in the store. But remember to bring accent pieces that blend well with the other décor items in the living room.

Mix and Match

When it comes to decorating the living room, don’t play by the rules. One focus – a relaxing go-to spot; many ways – play up the classic with contemporary, weave together warm and cool tones, break up the floor-furniture monotony or intermingle large patterns with small prints in similar shades.

Wall Arts

Paintings look good but an innovative wall art looks better on the living room wall. Symmetrical grid wall arts, pressed botanicals, seasonal hoops, typography wall art etc. are few options to add a sense of uniqueness.

Don’t like wall arts? How about a farmhouse-themed rustic Barnwood mirror?
