When it comes to decorating your home, all it takes is one downright cool, stand-out piece to be the game changer that sets the tone for the rest of your decor. While there are tons of ways to get that “cool girl” vibe, ahead are a few awesome ideas—from fashion collaborations to this season’s “it” color—that are on our radar right now.
A Trending Sofa
Chamberlin Velvet Sofa, Urban Outfitters, $898
The color lilac is seriously trending right now. Try incorporating it into your home by way of a large piece of furniture, instead of a small accent. The best part about this trending pastel is not that it will make any room instantly chic, but that it’s still somewhat of a neutral, so you don’t have to feel scared to commit.
A Fashion-Meets-Home Collaboration
Chiavari Chair with Embroidered Cat, Gucci, $2,600
In the past few years, Gucci has reclaimed its place as the ultimate “It” brand, and the label’s recent foray into home decor is no different. Red and pink is a trending color combo, and this chair will definitely bring a super cool, special touch to your home.
Untitled, 2015 by Alexander May, Price Upon Request
We’re all for getting something up on your walls, but instead of opting for posters or other affordable art, make a statement with an investment piece. The right art piece can totally transform a room, and there’s something to be said for investing in a piece you love by an artist you love. Do your research, find that one artist you’re obsessed with, and choose a piece you know will grow with you and your home. You won’t be sorry.
An All-Black-Everything Accent
Workshop Chair by Muuto, $329
While we love color, black accents are on the rise. Brushed black metal and sleek black accents are an awesome addition to absolutely any room. This cool girl item is one of the easiest to incorporate into your home right now—all you have to do is throwing a super sleek, all-black accent chair into the mix.
An “It Brand” Linen Set
Limited Edition Linen Set, Loewe, $790
Loewe is the ultimate cool-girl fashion brand, so we were excited to find their limited edition (only 400 units!) linen set. The set consists of a tablecloth, four individual placemats, and four napkins made with images from the Fall 2017 campaign.
A Conversation Starting Mirror
Rainbow Mirror, Urban Outfitters, $49.99
A statement mirror is a must-have piece because it can feel artful and make your space feel larger. The best part is that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to find an awesome option.
A Mood Lighting Helper
Aluminum Match Striker, Love Adorned, $60
Never underestimate what the right lighting can do to your place. Instead of focusing on lamps or overhead lighting, turn your focus to candles, candle holders, and an equally chic way to set them aflame. Think about it, if you’re setting the mood, the last thing you want is a clunky lighter to help you do it.
A Magazine That Speaks To You
Franchise Magazine, Opening Ceremony, $20
Getting your coffee table decor just right is an art. While our editors have some great tips, a must-have no matter your style is a great magazine with an equally great cover. Try Opening Ceremony or Need Supply to find a great curation of mags that will do the trick for your coffee table.
