Home design trends change quickly, while others can remain popular for decades. We surveyed many home designers about their advice for keeping up with current designs.
Pros have noticed an increasing move away from neutral colors in homes, as more homeowners look for bold hues – like this Denver living room by Duet Design Group that features teal walls.
Minimalism is all about clean lines and an absence of clutter, with appealing aesthetics that stand out. To achieve this trend, neutral paint colors like white, blush and tan as well as furniture with straight edges are frequently employed for this design trend. Minimalist architecture incorporates squared doorways instead of arched ones to achieve this style.
Minimalist design doesn’t have to be dull. A new take on this trend emphasizes personalization – for instance, homeowners can add custom features like tiles, bathroom vanities and window treatments with personalized elements to their homes as Mastrangeli notes.
Homeowners can add personal flair to minimalist spaces by using plants as decor. A fern or small succulent could serve as the perfect accent on a kitchen counter or coffee table without detracting from its overall look.
2. Geometric Patterns
Utilizing geometric patterns into your home decor is an easy and versatile way to add visual interest and add some visual pop. From rugs to curtains, incorporating geometric designs can help add visual interest and add personality. Incorporating these designs is great way to bring personality to neutral-toned rooms but could appear overcrowded or garish when used in highly colored rooms.
These geometric forms can be found throughout nature and have long served as an inspiration for architecture and art. From papering your walls with them to weaving them into throws or using them to decorate children’s rooms – geometric shapes never go out of style! Opt for oval and circular shapes as an aesthetically pleasing counterpoint to bolder rectangles and squares; ovals may add more of a playful feel than their more linear counterparts – geometrics never fail to be trendy!
Interior designers are adding texture to their rooms in various ways. According to Los Angeles-based interior designer Liz Foster, texture brings life and interest into any room it enters. “Texture adds visual interest while simultaneously remaining harmonious.”
Enhance linear furniture with soft rounded edges like this cove-lit vanity mirror from Etch Design Group. Also, try adding fluted details into cabinetry, walls and furniture pieces – this trend, popular among Joanna Gaines fans can create an inviting and welcoming environment in any room!
Rich earthy reds and browns bring nature inside, providing your living spaces with timeless character. Combine these hues with warm neutrals and soothing blues to create an inviting yet soothing ambience in your living spaces.
From organic shapes to fluid forms, sculptural design elements are back in vogue. According to Sadowski, homeowners have adopted an “out with the filler pieces and in with statement-making furniture” philosophy and embrace a minimalist outlook in their interior decor. Sculptural designs add visual interest while providing visual balance within rooms.
Home designers are also noting a trend toward more vibrant color palettes, driven largely by paint’s impactful saturated hues that have proven popular with both homeowners and design professionals alike.
The ‘blobby home’ design trend is also playing an influential role, adding amoeba-like shapes to furniture and decor with curves – Grove Collective has done an amazing job showcasing this style in their Utah bedroom! Furthermore, zellige tile has made its way into kitchens and bathrooms to add subtle glamour. Homeowners are customizing their spaces further with handmade tiles, window treatments, or cabinet hardware features like these for an unique experience in their space.
5. Natural Materials
Sustainability has become a driving force in home decorating, prompting home decorators to embrace natural materials in their design schemes. From organic rugs and wooden furniture, natural elements add an earthiness that pairs beautifully with many interior styles.
Stone is an ageless natural material, widely utilized for countertops, tubs and more. Additionally, its versatile aesthetic matches perfectly with many hardware finishes to achieve a comprehensive aesthetic.
Raw, unfinished materials have long been a favorite trend in home design. A recent TikTok trend known as “blobby” has brought curvy tables and mirrors, as well as curvier furniture such as curvier side tables. It has also found its way into home accessories like planters with unique shapes or blob-like lamps; all adding balance. When pairing this style with neutral hues for an calming effect or adding metallic hardware for more modern appeal.
