Our home is an extension of ourselves. So it stands to reason we’d want to be putting our best looking foot forward. Home decorating styles come and go, but inspiration often starts with a great trend.
Here are a few trending home decor styles to kick your next decorating project off with pizzazz.
Less of a style and more of an ethos, this trend belongs on this list nonetheless.
Sustainable style is all about applying strategy and purpose to your purchasing behavior. You should ask yourself who built the piece you have your eye on and what values they hold.
You should also be mindful of the manufacturing processes at play whenever you make a purchase.
A good way to indulge in this trend is to style your home with timeless pieces and materials. Longevity goes hand in hand with sustainability because it discourages waste.
And if you want to know exactly who built a piece, you can’t go past building it yourself.
Biophilia is the act of emphasizing the relationship between humans and nature. As a decorating style, this means using organic materials such as wood, stone, sunlight, and plant life to highlight the connections between us and nature.
In the market to buy a house through home buyer programs? Look for places with plenty of large windows and an eye toward breaking the boundary between the indoors and outdoors.
Indoor plants are great, but indoor gardens are better.
Memphis is Back
The 80s are back, and they’re overtaking midcentury modern as the color and furnishing foundation of choice.
Graphic shapes and primary colors are a must when indulging this trend. You should also lean away from straight, rigid lines in your furniture. Instead, indulge your love of enveloping tub chairs and poppy curved sofas.
Minimalism will always have a carefully designed place in our heart, but its dominance as a trend is waning. In its place: maximalism.
Bright colors, graphic patterns, and loud textures are becoming more prevalent. Indulge this trend by not shying away from mixing patterns, materials, and prints. Gallery walls, in particular, will shine from this treatment.
Just remember: more is more.
Boho with a Twist
Boho is the natural progression of a shift toward more natural, sustainable styling, and we couldn’t be happier. This year’s boho indulgence comes with a vintage modern twist: curved furnishings, brighter layers, and softer lines.
Get in on this trend by mixing things up. The lines between vintage and modern are blurring in a big way, so don’t be afraid to experiment with your boho-inspired pieces.
Metals are a great way to create definition and ground your environment. This year will see metal ensembles—a mix of 2 or 3 different metals—rise to prominence in a big way.
You can indulge this trend by looking to your accent metals. Brass, gold, or nickel all work well with aged iron or oil-rubbed bronze. Silver or pewter works a treat with bronze or black-brown metals.
Just remember: moderation is key.
