Real-Life Home Design Inspiration for Your New Year
With the start of each new year comes fresh home design trends, stylish new color palettes, and the itch to redecorate! It can be hard to navigate the decor styles and design trends on your own though—that’s why we teamed up with thirteen of the most inspirational influencers to bring you the New Year, New Room Refresh Challenge to explore this year’s home-style trends in real homes. Each talented blogger chose one room in their home to refresh using a Mohawk Home rug as inspiration, and their final decorated spaces turned out beyond beautiful.
