ALL ABOUT PATTERNS
Bold wallpaper, textiles & art.
Large and small-scale patterns are being showcased in homes on everything from walls, to flooring, backsplashes and window treatments. If committing to a pattern on your walls is a bit scary, play around with patterns on ‘easy to change’ elements such as accent pillows, area rugs, and drapery.
OUTDOORS IS IN
With more time spent indoors than ever before, we’re all craving some time in nature. This has inspired the return of natural surfaces and decorative items. Think warmer wood cabinets, natural stone floors, decorative branches and large trees.
Rounded furniture & architecture.
After many years of seeing ‘straight lines’ associated with modern, contemporary design, we are welcoming more playful and creative trends. Curved profiles are popping up in furniture, lighting, architecture and home accents. Curves reflect our desire for a soft, cozy, comfortable home.
WHAT’S OLD IS NEW
Antique & vintage accents.
The driving forces behind the desire to showcase vintage pieces in the home: sustainability, availability, and uniqueness. Our environmental impact is top of mind for many when purchasing used furniture and décor. Also, if you’ve placed any upholstered furniture orders in the last little while, you’ve likely faced production and shipping delays, whereas second-hand furniture can arrive in a few days. There is also something to be said about securing a rare or limited-edition item.
Expanding on the trend of seeing more nature in the home – brown is back. Shades and tones from nature like terracotta, chocolate, mustard and sage bring about warmth, earthiness, and calm that feel comfortable and grounding. We are seeing the rise of a warmer ‘minimalism’ so after a few years of our homes being all white, that now seems stark. Designers are opting for warmer bases.
