When it comes to identifying home décor trends to refresh the look and feel of your home with ease, it can be more trying, especially if you are a novice. And since décor trends aren’t as easy to consider as fashion ones, and take more investment at that, we turned to the interior designers at Décor Aid to help you find inspiration with the best design trends of the moment, for a quick home and room refresh.
RICH JEWEL TONES
Create a decadent jewel box feel in your home with lush jewel tones that easily evoke elegance and approachable opulence. And as furniture trends go, jewel tones are a safe bet as you can style them up or down without having to go for a risky color.
To make the furniture trend your own, look for brilliantly hued furnishings and extras even in the smallest of doses as jewel tones pair well with just about any design style and when mixed transitionally, can help to create a chicly layered, relaxed look.
SUMPTUOUS VELVET UPHOLSTERY
Silky to the touch and sturdy to boot, velvet upholstery and fabrications may evoke a vintage feel, but when brought in in an unexpected hue, they can look all the more modern. Use velvet to add an elevated feel in any room while making it feel all the more polished and comforting. Even better when in jewel tones.
When it comes to forward-thinking finishes, smooth to the touch matte finishes are the ultimate of on-trend options. That said, matte finishes can be challenging to maintain since they can be porous so be sure to keep matte surfaces clean and out of high-traffic areas to ensure a longer lifespan.
High-gloss finishes and elements are sure to add an intoxicating sense of sophistication throughout your home and can be affordable to boot. Plus, more often than not they work to reflect light, which will, in turn, help a room appear brighter and larger.
Terrazzo hasn’t been in style since the ‘80s but all of a sudden, its playfully sporadic spots feel fresh and worth reconsidering all over again. Add character throughout your home in even the smallest of doses as this time around you can bring in Terrazzo through printed and painted accessories, instead of having to spend a small fortune on the stone.
The return of lucite tables makes for a welcome home décor trend as they look timeless in appeal, pair well with any design style, and best of all, keep a room looking as large as possible as they don’t conceal precious floor space. We love the vibe that lucite tables lend to modern décor, or just about any design style, from the traditional to the transitional. They are sleek and interesting, and they help create the feeling of more space in any room. They are also great for small space decorating.
AN ART DECO SPIRIT
When looking to up your homes glamor factor, Art Deco furniture makes for one of the easiest routes to take inspiration from. Think high-shine metallics paired with jewel tones and symmetrical geometric patterns and prints for a truly striking effect.
THE RETURN OF FLORAL AND CHINTZ
A surprise to everyone in the interior design world, the return of classic floral and chintz patterns all of a sudden feel both refreshing and comforting. The key to getting the décor trend right here is to stick to small doses via throws, pillow, and accessories as you don’t want your home to come off as too retro-inspired.
FOUR POSTER CANOPY BEDS
Four poster beds haven’t looked enticing for decades, but they are back in vogue via cleaner lines, darker colors, and subtler finishes this time around. And since they can take up valuable visual space, keep in mind that they work best in large bedrooms.
With all eyes on the handmade, the sustainable, and the investment worthy, custom furniture, if you can afford it, seems all the more viable when looking to create a unique home. Custom furniture will lend your home a well realized, one of a kind feel that’ll be well worth the investment for years to come. That is, as long as you don’t veer too far off into the experimental.
Graphic optical prints are sure to add an element of intriguing illusion to your décor and are in keeping with today’s geometrical trend as well. Just be sure to stick to a simple mix of subtle colors to not overwhelm the eye.
CLEAN AND MINIMAL LINES
While the return of maximal interior design seems like a fun departure from the strictness of minimalism, today’s approach to a full-on look still calls for clean lines and simple silhouettes to not overwhelm the eye. Use those straightforward cues to counterbalance today’s heavier prints and more vibrant colors.
HANDY BAR CARTS
Add a sense of old-world everyday glamor to your entertaining areas with a moveable bar or tea cart that’ll make serving delicious drinks all the more intoxicating. Style your serving cart with a medley of decanters, bottles, and glasses to really punctuate its presence.
If you’ve got the space, built-in banquettes are sure to make your home feel personalized while adding to its resale value. Even better when you are able to use the area underneath your built-in for added storage.
While a truly minimal home calls for just a handful of colors and finishes, with the return of maximalism, come new cues that call for a heady mix of metals. Pairing silver, gold, and rose gold together is sure to create a more glamorous yet refined look when added with a well-judged sensibility.
