And this factor has affected our interiors also. People are preferring comfortable, easy and something that reflects their personal style rather than extravagant expressions. We will see up and close on what will be trending this coming year.
• Continue bringing the outdoors in!
Everyone’s love affair with greens, blues and earthy tones have become more than ever. Researchers have shown that being close to nature not only affects people’s mood but also improves their health condition like lowering stress levels. In the coming year, we can see the rise of bamboo, rattan, dried flowers and leaf motifs. Interiors to be cool and optimistic but not cold. Terracotta paint and material itself has been growing into the use as it depicts nature so well.
• Start the year with some lavender touch!
Neutrals will take a backseat for the coming year as many designers will start to experiment with the pantone color of the year ‘very peri’ and vivifying red also with the undertones of blue. The use of color encourages personal innovation and creativity. We also believe that terracotta paint will be in the use for a while. Overlaying calms of red helps you to get away from reality for a while. Monochromatic rooms could set in, and it will feel like a big giant hug.
• The organic mode
While we are spending more time indoors than outdoors, biophilic design has emerged into various contexts but this year we will start to get inspired from the natural materials like travertine, stoneware, marble to be used in bathtubs and across backsplashes in kitchen and TV wall units. The raw and imperfect nature of these materials add soul to the room and blends in calming ambiance to the interiors.
• Now is the time to go vintage
With the environment awareness and shortage of new supply with the advancement with the importance of upcycling, I think the use of vintage materials and furniture will set the trend.
Vintage collection not only is a sustainable and efficient solution but also adds unique character to the space. Remodeling of the old and used into something new, we are reducing our footprint on the planet while also embracing our rich history. Vintage collection not only includes wall hangings or decorative antiques but also furniture upcycles and use of materials like sheepskin, faux pas’ leather.
• Keep on playing with the curves
One thing that everyone has set their mind on is interiors should feel good as they look good. The use of feminine touch with the rounded detailing elements and curvilinear furniture styles will continue to impact interior design trends in one way or the other. With curves, we do not mean over-the-top, exaggerated pieces but something calm with soft finishes that feel cozy and chic yet relaxed and comfortable.
