Colour code and combine different colours for the desired look, following colour trends and following what is latest and trendy is cool but when you design and decorate your house share your personality with it. Design a house to look like one and not look very cold or like a hotel room. A house should always speak about the people living in it. So do not design a house design yourself a home that look chic and trendy and reflects your own self.
