The New Year is the beginning of a season of rebirth and renewal. If you’re considering a home decor refresh or if you’d like to make updates to your living space, there is no better time to look at your home in a new light.
Meridian Collectors love a timeless and neutral aesthetic. We’re here to tell you that you can keep your home decor timeless and neutral while keeping your space feeling fresh and relevant. Here are a few ideas we have for keeping your home decor timeless and neutral in 2022 while still living in the moment.
Vintage Home Decor Accents
Celebrate your uniqueness and tell the stories of your travels through one of a kind, global vintage home decor. We love nothing more than adventuring outside of our comfort zone to countries near and far. We know that Meridian Collectors love the look of vintage accents sourced straight from places like the flea market or local artisans. For this reason, we strive to help you find the best pieces that are full of character or add to that collected look that we all crave.
Some of our favorite vintage home decor pieces in our current collection include the Vintage Unglazed Terra Cotta Jars that were handmade in Turkey, the Vintage Clay Pots handmade in India, and the Vintage Reclaimed Village Wood Bowls hand-carved in India. With our handmade pieces from around the globe in your home, you’ll never run out of things to chat about over dinner with guests.
More people are moving away from “fast fashion” and toward longevity and timelessness. For some, this may include tailored handmade pieces using natural materials. That’s why we love using home decor like our Kariba Basket as an accent piece. They look great featured on built-in shelves or even atop an end table. Each Kariba Basket has been handcrafted by women artisans from the Buhera group in Zimbabwe. Woven from local ilala palm fibers, these beautiful vase-shaped baskets are a textural statement that will look gorgeous in your home.
Are you spending more time at home lately, too? Meridian Collectors are cozying up with their linen blankets and linen block print pillows. They look just as luxurious as they feel. We don’t predict that things will change anytime soon, so we’re buckling down and snuggling up with our Nisha or Naz Linen Blankets. They pair perfectly with our Amelia, Aanya, or Himani Linen Throw Pillows for a timeless and luxurious combination that will never go out of style.
Mixing Earthy Tones
Browns and earthy tones are coming more into play in 2022. Especially with a mix of beige and gray. The organic feel of bringing the outside in will continue to be a visual theme this year. We’re excited for what that means with neutral home decor! Meridian Collectors love the earthy and natural tones of our Vintage Turkish Olive Jar and our Kit Block Print Pillow.
Living Room Bars
As we’ve gotten used to staying at home more, living room bars and drink trolleys won’t be going anywhere in 2022. Now is the time to add a little global flair to your at home bar. Meridian Collectors are huge fans of entertaining at home. They have been adding these handmade accessories to elevate their every day experiences: our Cheetah, Elephant, and Giraffe Bottle Stoppers, Hawthorne Drink Stirrers, Ariel Brass Spoons, and Devi Coaster Set. Guests will feel like they’re at a 5-Star Hotel when they see all of your stunning cocktail accoutrements.
Adding a pop of black to your home decor or hardware is the perfect way to add contrast and depth to your light and neutral space. While light and neutral home decor can be both refreshing and calming, filling a room with nothing but whites, creams, and cool grays can make all of your curated decor blend together. Adding a pop of contrast or color can be done using items like our Vintage Mini Clay Pot, Black Baby Alpaca Throw Blanket, or even our Riya Inlay Vase.
More Marble Home Decor
You can never go wrong with too much marble, especially hand carved marble featuring gorgeous gray veining. Meridian Collectors know that marble will never go out of style. Our Caspari Marble Bowls, Jasmine Marble Collection, and our Aurora Candle Holder are the perfect marble accessories for your timeless home decor.
