Does your home need a facelift? Or have you recently bought a house and need ideas to fill in all that extra space? Are you a realtor in need of fresh ideas for client closing gifts? Well, you’re in luck! We have searched high and low for the best new decoration ideas for 2018 to make your house not only feel homey, but to make it really stand out for the rest of the year. Below are our top eight décor ideas (and the links to buy them) to give your home a classy new look.

1. The Grommet – Wooden State Art

Nobody loves Florida more than native Floridians do. Why not celebrate your pride for your home state with a beautiful framed skyline and name of your city or town. These pieces by are very well done and give a chic look to what could otherwise be known as plain.

2. A Spring or Summer floral wreath

Who says wreaths are only for Christmas time? They’re a beautiful addition to any front door, no matter what color, and really gives a fun pop of color to the front of your house! Especially if you have a white or gray door, a floral wreath will help to make your front door stand out and folks will feel like if they were to walk inside your house, you’ll have an ice cold glass of lemonade waiting for them.

3. Bar Cart

Summer is the best time for hosting, especially in Florida. The weather is warm, the nights are long, and who doesn’t love a crisp margarita on a cool summer night with friends? A new bar cart on wheels would be perfect for hosting indoors or outdoors and can hold everything you’d need for one night. The ones with wine racks underneath are especially neat and makes it your one-stop shop for hosting get-togethers. We guarantee you’ll get a ton of compliments on it the next time you have people over!

4. Anything Magnolia

If you’re like us, then you spend more time than you’d like to admit binge-watching Fixer Upper on Saturdays. So, when Joanna Gaines came out with her new line of home décor, Magnolia, we couldn’t wait how to implement her designs in our homes! These candles, for example, are unique and classic with a rustic twist that would be perfect for almost any house. Search around the website and see what works best for you!

5. Dress Up Your Fireplace

Obviously you won’t be using your fireplace for quite some time, or if you have a non-working fireplace, there are plenty of ways you can make it match perfectly with the rest of the room! A big vase of flowers (fake or real), books, cut logs, and candles are all ways you can fill in that empty space without it looking misplaced.

6. Monogrammed Sign

If you don’t have something with your name on it in your house, stop reading this and go order yourself something cute with your family’s last name. Take pride in that name of yours and cheerfully show it off in the comfort of your home! Plus, it’s another simple way to spruce up your walls, add class, and, quite literally, call it your own by putting your name on it.

7. Add Pops of Color wherever you can

Whether it’s simply a fresh vase of flowers, a glass jar filled with lemons or apples, or bright graphic artwork on the wall, a few, small details filled with summertime colors can really add character to the rooms of your house!

8. Mirrors

Mirrors have been popular for a long time but maybe you haven’t caught on yet or maybe you’ve just been putting it off. Whatever the reason, accent mirrors are a fabulous way to add character to a blank wall without too much effort. There are so many beautiful types of mirrors, it’s easy to find one that fits your personal style and color schemes. Try a mirror with a gold or blue frame to highlight summer time in your home.
