Design trends are influenced by experts, magazines, media, but also current events and changing moods. One philosophy that has become increasingly popular over the years is undoubtedly sustainability. The same trend is what we will probably see the most eco-friendly interior designs that will bring us one step closer to nature.
Trends in interior design
Due to urban sprawl, living space decreases and is increasingly flexible and lifestyle. Increasing the percentage of workers who work remotely or at home also requires a rethinking of the organization of the home. Architects and designers are looking for ways to turn them into a comfortable combination of living and working space that easily adapts to changing requirements. The demand for portable and multifunctional furniture suitable for modern nomads is increasing.
Portable and multifunctional furniture
At the same time, the trends are in search of homes that provide cleaner air, help improve the health and well-being of its residents through the use of more ecological materials and with more presence of nature in the home. Through digital technologies, users now have access to product information that they can compare and even share product reviews and ratings – a new generation of hyperlinked users want to regain control.
Velvet and Art Deco style
As for decoration, a well-known trend will clearly continue to dominate in the interior and velvet and the Art Deco style. Many of the new furniture collections contain such elements.
Boho chic style
A virus recently spread in the living room via social media that we hope will swing the interior design world is the so-called Boho style. It is the reaction against a clean and polished style commonly used in furniture showrooms, which is transformed into the Boho style, which allows mixing objects that at first glance seem quite incompatible. No other type of furniture is so obviously independent of the architectural framework as is the Boho style.
Boho style is loud and artistically complicated
Whether you introduce boho chic elements into spaces that retain their Scandinavian simplicity or create your own (breathing) space entirely using a certain “bohemian” style, it doesn’t matter. The boho style is the answer to the ideal of slow life, where we see an aesthetic of clean, almost empty interiors with built-in furniture for storage and display of everything is too restrictive. On the contrary, the Boho style is loud and artistically complicated, it is modeled after the bohemians of the 19th century who rebel against the bourgeois middle class with this completely different lifestyle.
Natural materials, textiles and any loan from various exotic cultures
Now natural materials, textiles and any borrowings from various exotic cultures are used such as cushions made from old rugs, which are combined with fabrics from India and blankets from Peru, rattan furniture and green areas. And the coffee table can be a large metal tray placed on a blanket.
The focus is on families
The focus is on families, resulting in a tendency to develop a welcoming home and improve the way people communicate. Spending a lot of money is no longer the focus of interior design. This will likely make many homeowners happy.
That a piece of furniture is affordable does not mean that it has to be less comfortable either. On the contrary: the main focus of interior design in 2018 will be comfort and communication. The cozy and comfortable furniture pieces ensure the creation of a living room that stimulates conversations and motivates people to spend more time together. Apart from that, the focus will be on creating small areas within a room, with a comfortable chair placed in the corner, separated by a light divider that allows anyone to have a pleasant time reading, relaxing or enjoying the peace.
Natural color palette
Staying in tune with nature, we’re ready to say goodbye to cool, bright colors and welcome neutral earth tones like green, brown, or beige with subtle hues of black, white, blue, and soft orange. They can be easily combined with metallic or gold details. Copper and bronze will be the materials chosen by the decorator. Therefore, you will not go wrong with shades of terracotta, white or gray.
Soft, washed pastel shades like mint green and sandy pink
Minimalist colors aren’t going anywhere. However, they are taking on a less organized look. Soft, washed pastels like mint green and sandy pink completely reimagine simple modern design this coming year. What is most important is that the colors harmonize perfectly to create combinations that combine the organic shade.
A single colorful piece of furniture can accentuate and turn the entire aesthetic of the space
Well, if we consider that often the fashion scene paves the way for furniture design when it comes to color and texture, we can assume that in the end a single colorful piece of furniture can accentuate and turn the entire aesthetics of any space. Also notable is the influence of brands that introduce the strong and playful presence of pastel colors in girls’ rooms that can quickly become the norm.
Green in all its live varieties is highly acceptable
Going through the magazines one can observe the repeated presence of shades of lemon yellow as a choice that defines the character. But that’s not the only bold and very present choice from designers when it comes to color choice – green in all its vivid varieties is highly acceptable and introduced in any number of different hues, including the tangy yellowish-green that Pantone has made its color of the year.
Pine Green, Mustard Yellow, Royal Blue, and Burgundy Red Living Place
Another intriguing and deep exploration trend is the creation of a living space where pine green, mustard yellow, royal blue and burgundy red come together to form an interior style inspired by late 19th century Viennese salons. twentieth century.
Baroque influence and a wealth of sensational experiences
And speaking of the baroque influence and the wealth of sensational experiences, we must focus our attention on the use of compositions rich in materials such as velvet, different shiny metal surfaces and the addition of dark wood. Featured in satin gold, created by polished brass, a worthy successor to copper can also adorn the feature’s rich decoration. While bronze was featured strongly in recent years, we are now seeing more shades of gold and brass. That places a strong emphasis on the splendor of the interior of our home.
Combination between modern Scandinavian approach and vintage charm
As in this interior composition, the combination of modern Scandinavian approach and vintage charm when doused with a hint of gold spender can take on a sense of luxury and nobility that is unmistakable. We must find a balance point to preserve some of the rich characteristics of the vintage expression and add luxurious materials, strong and intense color accents and attractive textures.
Renewable materials and bright lights
What better way to create an ecological environment in tune with nature than to use renewable materials such as dark wood or cork? Dark wood, in particular, is likely to be the most popular material, as it works with just about any style. Cork will be close too, as the material is great for floors, cabinets, and even walls. To make sure these materials stand out, designers will also focus on accent lighting, creating warm and inviting rooms.
Frugal home decor
Who would want to spend thousands of euros on a decorative piece? Nobody! The trends will be all about creativity and frugal decor – creating stunning pieces of art that match the texture and theme of any room with recycled materials. Not only will this save you a lot of money on decorating, it will give your home a unique and personal touch.
Large comfortable furniture in bold colors
Large comfortable furniture decided in bold colors and attractive textures this time inspired by the iconic model presented more than 35 years ago, which carries the hint of the vintage experience.
Vintage furniture pieces
Speaking of living room design arrangements, there are a few main guidelines you may have already noticed – that’s aside from the intense color and explosion of glossy materials that we explored earlier; inspiration in vintage furniture pieces can be seen almost everywhere. And we talk about inspiration in the use of new materials, new technologies and aesthetics to rethink and give new life to a time-tested design. And that makes the word of interior design a richer and more entertaining place – many of these new designs have confidently splashed across different eras, taking ideas, patterns, and solutions from the 1940s and 1950s or the 1970s. , which provide a great variety and exuberance of shapes.
Sofas expand and spread
But mind you, this rethinking and reincarnation of furniture design shows its unique contemporary direction: the sofas expand and stretch too, the seating arrangement is big and fluffy, the seats fold and turn until you’re lying down. Inviting comfort and leisure, the new trend of oversized, bloated and lazy-looking seating arrangements and sofas is an expression of modern life, where people come home after a busy day and want to rest, relax and feel comfortable.
Luxurious and elegant atmosphere
But it is necessary to create a luxurious and elegant environment. This is another trend observed in the world of interior decoration: walking between the exhibition stands one is dazzled by the gleaming gold, smooth velvet and exclusive materials, seductively bright colored glass and finely brushed metal that constitute the characteristic of interior decoration rooms. Sophistication is certainly “the rage” in today’s world of interior design. In fact, the trend towards elegance is noticeable everywhere.
Marble will continue to evolve
Marble will continue to evolve this year with more green and brown colors introduced with minimal edges and lines. Gone are the days of beefy stools and dressers. It’s about creating the utmost sophistication and simplistic designs. Other materials that will appear in our homes this year will be terrazzo, handmade ceramics, velvet and bronze. The plants are also very large and they are here to stay. They have become more of works of art in their own right and are creatively decorated to bring the houses to life.
Chairs and sofas are low and luxurious for maximum comfort
Chubby, soft and curvy is how we see furniture emerging this year. Chairs and sofas are low and luxurious for maximum comfort. The edges are round and not so sharp for tables and more and more round objects are popping up. In conclusion; we will see less symmetry and more free style in the design of the spaces.
