What’s hot? What’s current? What’s now? When it comes to what’s in in the interior design world, the answer is a myriad of timeless trends as well as a number of new ones. Curious? I’ve compiled a list and style guide to help you incorporate these ideas into your own home…
No longer considered feminine or old-fashioned, pastel color palettes are used to create environments that are both current and soothing. Pastels may also pull you out of the gloomy, winter mood you might be in…
Looking for a budget alternative to artwork? Consider mirrors. Hang them in groupings for an impactful look. It’s time to start thinking about incorporating mirrors in rooms other than just the bathroom.
Indigo remains a modern alternative to black. Use this rich color to create an elevated, chic look in your space, or, if you aren’t ready to commit, incorporate it as an accent.
Cue the 70’s music. Wallpaper was in, then out, and now it is certainly back in. Instead of opting for a solid color, consider the ways in which wallpaper can add texture and pattern to nearly any space.
Black and White Palette.
One of the most timeless color palettes remains on trend. If you aren’t confident in your ability to seamlessly incorporate statement furniture, art, or bold colors into your decor, keep it simple. You can’t go wrong with black and white.
From accent pillows to accent furniture, faux fur is a creative way to add texture and glamour. Used sparingly, it makes a great statement.
Wood can infuse an organic and natural element in any room. Consider incorporating a unique slab table or other interesting wood accent piece.
Black and White Photography.
Instead of solely using abstract artwork in a space, consider incorporating black and white photography as a creative and interesting alternative to traditional art.
Brass remains one of the hottest finishes in home decor. Used in moderation (for example on a bar cart), brass can bring in an element of classic Hollywood glamour.
Acrylic and Resin.
When it comes to transparent surfaces, acrylic and resin is being infused into a number of modern furniture selections.
Try out some of these trends in your own home and see first-hand how they can truly transform a space. For more interior design tips and tricks, check out my recent article, “10 Ways to Enhance Your Guest Room.“
