As custom home builders, we’re always a little sad when the project we’ve taken from dirt to completion finally closes and the new homeowner moves in. However, we also love seeing what you’re able to do once you’ve finally gotten those keys and started adding your personalized touches especially following the hottest decor trends.

It’s also January, which means there are a ton of new decorating and design ideas to incorporate into what you plan to do with your new residence. Here are a few of our favorite new year decor trends for your custom home.

1. Personalized Cabinetry and Fixtures

2. Color Palettes That Mimic Nature and Travel

Living in Louisiana, it’s likely that we all long to get out into the great outdoors as much as possible. However, our hot Louisiana heat keeps us inside more than we would like. Perhaps that’s why the global trend of bringing color palettes indoors that mimic hues seen in faraway places is so prevalent in our area.

The beachy vibe is still very relevant, while others love to add a bit of international or Moroccan flair with bright tones. However, local tones are on-trend, like a cloud white paired with light colors like sky blue for contrast. At eNg Designs & Construction, we trust all of our on-trend color satisfaction to our friends at Sherwin Williams in Hammond, LA. They make it easy to customize, match and expand our design ideas with so many trending color palettes to choose from.

3. Closed Floor Plans

While it might seem like everyone these days wants an open floor plan, the truth is that there is a rise in the number of homeowners looking to create some segmentation within the home for greater privacy. After all, when more people work from home with spouses and children, everyone needs their space.

4. Colorful Accessories

For all of the latest modern accessories, we love using This year, one of the hottest trends is colorful items—brightly-hued dinnerware, throw pillows that pop, accent walls, and even wallpaper!

For those that have been on the gray-and-white trend with all your base furnishings in your custom home, you’ll be happy to know that an extra bold or bright hue usually contrasts nicely. By adding a fun little piece here or there, you can quickly spruce up your space and make it appear more modern, like these Neace velvet chairs from

5. Indoor/Outdoor Living

Finally, one of the biggest home decor trends for this year is a greater emphasis on indoor/outdoor living spaces. Whether you’ve been looking to add a new deck or simply want an outdoor kitchen, now is a great time to go ahead and make it happen before the spring and summer.

And there are a lot of ways you can extend your usable square footage outside, too. Simply adding a pergola to your backyard with a dinette set for those warm evening suppers or enclosing an existing patio to create a screened porch are all ways to give your family more space especially with our Louisiana weather!
