It is common for each generation to think that it has mastered the latest trends, which are in fact re-invented versions of what their parents were into when they were younger. Fashion trends come back all the time. Since we buy and shop for new clothes so often, we are all aware when they do.
This cycle of fashions is also seen in home decor and interior designs, although it’s less obvious. The trends are more durable than in the fashion industry. A good example is mid-century modern style. Since the last 10 years, it has become the standard for contemporary design. The mid-century style may not be a thing of the past for most people, but it is a trend that has been fading in popularity. The following five trends are poised to return. How to incorporate them into your home.
Art Deco Furniture
It makes sense, even though they are in reverse order, that these two styles will revive one after the other. Art deco is characterized by geometric patterns and symmetry. It also emphasizes old-school glamour. This Gatsby era design is returning in the form of shell-shaped velvet chairs and chaises as well as wooden pieces decorated with Greek key or triangle patterns.
Rattan, Wicker and Bamboo
The casual materials have certainly seen a resurgence thanks to the overall boho aesthetic that’s popular these days. But in more traditional spaces, rattan, wicker, and bamboo are weaving their way into bar stools, headboards, and storage pieces like chests or side tables, all of which add a little coastal-casual charm. These casual materials are making a comeback thanks to the boho style that is so popular today. But in traditional homes, they can be found on bar stools, headboards and storage pieces such as chests and side tables.
In recent years, stainless-steel appliances have become the hallmark of an updated, high-end kitchen. The sleeker and more modern the appliance, the better. Retro appliance designs are now being brought back into the showroom, whether they’re a colorful fridge from the ’50s or a replica antique wood-burning oven. Retro appliances are a great way to add a little fun and kitsch to your kitchen. They can also be beautiful pieces that will add elegance and historical value to your house.
Southerners will tell you that family heirlooms never go out of fashion, but they are now being given their due. The new rule is to have a piece “brown” furniture in each room. You can repurpose pieces to serve new purposes. For example, you can use dressers for sideboards or entryways, or step stools for side tables. Or, you could turn a hutch in a bar. While some may say that painting an antique piece of wood furniture is a sin, a new coat with new hardware could be just the thing to breathe new life into an old piece.
Matching fabrics and wall coverings
You can use the same fabric to create multiple accents in a space or you can go large and use multiple patterns in different rooms. There are many ways to match these two elements, whether you use textiles that have subtle ticking stripes, wild flowers, or calming designs. You can make a big impact by matching the wallpaper to upholstered furniture, or you can achieve the same look using a subtler approach such as throw pillows or a bed skirt. There are many options: drapery and bedding, headboards, lamp shades, etc.
We’re not referring to cozy wooden cabins that are wall-to-wall or houses that haven’t been touched in decades, but instead, exposed and natural wood paneling. Before you tear out the paneling you feel is outdated, think of other ways to make the room look new and the wood shine. Consider using the paneling as an accent instead of covering the entire room. This could be a wall, a bookcase or a built-in bar.
The use of bold wallpaper is a great way to add personality and character to any room. Peel and stick wallpaper allows for a lot of creativity. From geometric patterns and whimsical botanicals to stripes and solid textured textures, the possibilities are endless. When it comes to wallpaper that makes a statement, the bolder the better.
