Trending Home Accents to Add to Your New Miller & Smith Home

Posted on October 25, 2017 by Miller and Smith Blog Team

Browsing Pinterest has finally got the best of you and you are now trying to decide what style you’re going for in your new Miller & Smith home. If you’re overwhelmed by the options and not sure where to turn, take a look at some current trends that we have recently had our eye on, and how to get the look from our model homes in various communities throughout Virginia and Maryland!


Deep green & cabin chic

Be inspired by the colors and textures of the great outdoors by creating a place that feels like your own cozy cabin in the woods. Take some design cues from our Parkvue townhome at Tallyn Ridge at Pinecliff Park that truly mimics the mountain and valley views seen from the community! The natural hues, stacked logs, and plush mossy accents create a wooded wonderland right inside this gorgeous Frederick, MD home.

Dramatic walls

Whether it is statement printed wallpaper or just a bright, bold color, the design world has slowly been moving away from all-white everything. If you’re really daring with your home design, try incorporating Benjamin Moore’s 2018 color of the year, Caliente, or the Sherwin Williams 2018 color of the year, Oceanside. Both of these colors will make a statement in any room and will keep your home ahead of the trends.

Ceilings with impact

If you have ever visited any of our model homes, you know that this is one of our favorite ways to show off a ceiling in a bedroom, kitchen, or even rec room. Now it’s your turn! Miller & Smith’s modern home designs provide the perfect canvas to take risks with your home interiors, even if it is up on the ceiling. Think of the ceiling as a 5th wall to decorate by creating a cool contrast to the rest of the room, or adding allover pattern to wow your guests!

A cushion, a pillow, a chair, or an entire couch — the fabric of the year has got to be velvet! This duochrome fabric is not for the faint of heart, as it is shiny and showy, but it is oh so soft. If you can’t picture velvet incorporated into your personal home design aesthetic, consider  swapping your regular accent pillows for some colorful velvet during the holiday season for added shine.

Navy and Gold

We know what you’re thinking, but navy and gold do not have to represent the traditional nautical theme associated with this color combo. Below are a few examples from our 1L Next Level model home at Upper West One Loudoun. The contrast of the dark navy blue colors and the metallic gold accents creates a luxe ‘penthouse suite’ feel and will bring some serious va-va-voom to your home.
