Black Matte Fixtures
According to HGTV, one of the hottest trends in home decor is the use of black matte fixtures.

Keep in mind, however, that there's a big difference between a minimalist home and simply an open space. You should still balance the environment by placing furnishings and decorative accessories throughout your home.
Shadowboxes aren't a new home decor trend, but they are certainly picking up momentum among homeowners.
