Just as fashions change, so do décor trends. After all, décor follows in the footsteps of the fashion world. It may not be as easy to toss out household items and replace them as you might do when it comes to an old dress or shirt. Plus, most of us have at least a few sentimental heirlooms and second-hand finds that we don’t want to part with or get rid of.
The good news is that you don’t have to discard all your belongings to create a more modern home. By simply rethinking a few décor elements and finishes, you can achieve a fresh new look. Although Jacob Crafford-Burger of Jakob Interior Design Studio is not a man who allows himself to be driven by trends, he knows very well how décor fads work and he applies them in a timeless and classic manner in his own home.
