With the new year well underway, we’re here to start looking ahead at some of the timeless styles of decorating that we can’t get enough of. Just like you see in the fashion world, interior trends can often re-emerge to blend tastefully with more modern techniques. Check out the latest and hottest interior design trends that are making a comeback this year below!
Even though this unique material was once viewed as a faux paw from the 70s, it’s finally making a comeback with rich colours ranging from deep blue tones to dark forest green. This old fashioned fabric has transformed into a creative and luxurious material that can be used in many versatile ways. That’s why it tops the list as one of the major interior design trends making a comeback this year.
Floral patterns have definitely been a hot trend in recent years, primarily when it comes to fashion. However, we’re starting to see the trend shift into the interior decorating realm as well with more designers opting for floral features walls and accents.
Brass was all the rage in the late 80s and throughout the early 90s. But over time, brass was also a material that we quickly outgrew, viewing it as a slightly tacky and old-fashioned look. Today, however, we can welcome it back with open arms, alongside other metallic favourites, like polished nickel and copper. Metals are an integral part of many designs today, and with a modern twist, brass is helping to add a warm, sleek, and vintage alternative.
The warm, funky, and unusual pairings of materials throughout the 70s is what we can expect to see more of this year. This includes abstract patterns to bolder colours, shag carpets, and more. The chic and retro boho 70s style adds that wild, funky flair and warmth that so many of us love.
Vintage Trough Sinks
Also known as bucket sinks, trough sinks were a staple throughout farmhouses many years ago. As the love of vintage only increases year after year, these sinks are making a substantial revival with their farm-inspired designs. These timeless pieces paired with polished gold faucets can add a perfect touch of nostalgia to any bathroom or kitchen.
Incorporating elements from the natural world into the home isn’t something new. Using refurbished and reclaimed wood has been gaining fierce momentum for designers and homeowners over the past few years and is predicted to continue. By mixing items like wood, stone, concrete, and greenery together, it helps to strike a balance between nature and our high-tech digital world today. It’s no wonder this trend is only growing more popular every year. Finding balance and reprieve at home is what interior design is all about.
Back in the day, we weren’t afraid to go bold with our colour palettes. But then, neutrals swept in and really muted our use of unique pallets. Today, thankfully, it’s all about embracing the colours once again while keeping the home fresh, modern, and stylish. Rich feature walls or bathrooms and bedrooms with colours that pop are ideal for pairing with muted furnishings to liven up your space. Look out for burnt yellows, deep greens, and hot reds.
Black and White
Love the look of black and white? Whether it’s the vintage subway tiles for the bathroom or your choice of couch and pillows, the black and white look is also a favourable trend that’s picking up speed this year. The contrast of these together make it an excellent way to add more depth and visual interest to a room, especially if you’re not a fan of too much colour.
In lieu of the popular 70s boho chic revival, bold and dramatic geometric patterns are nudging their way back into our interior design hearts. Also commonly used as a feature wall accent, the dramatic twist and bold accents can enhance your bathroom, bedroom, or living room in a classic and elegant way.
With so many things sporting the matte look these days, it was only a matter of time before it took on as a trend for interior décor. And the improvements to the matte style has made it an even more attractive alternative to the dramatic, high-gloss sheen we usually see on various furnishings and surfaces.
