Pantone has released a new color of the year, which means it’s time to check in on new trends in interior design. While timeless decor is always a good idea, it’s also important to refresh your space now and again to help you stay inspired. The new year is a great time to evaluate what you love about your home and what you want to update. While no one can see into the future, there are a few trends that everyone can agree are the next big thing. We’ve done the research for you so that you can decide what to incorporate into your home this year.
Amongst all of the neutrals and minimalistic design trends, it’s becoming more popular to incorporate one statement piece in each room to add some visual interest. Some things to try might be an end table that you refurbished to make one-of-a-kind or a light fixture that draws attention to the sky and makes your simplistic home feel bigger. The idea is to elevate your home without making it feel overwhelmingly cluttered or busy. Whether this be a unique furniture piece or an accent wall, finding one thing that makes your room stand out and shows off your personality is a great way to have the best of both a simplistic design and an exceptional space that’s all your own.
Boldly going where no one has gone before
Serving as a nice break from the tans, beiges, and warm browns, powder rooms are becoming a place to experiment with bold colors and patterns. The small space is the perfect opportunity to try out a busy wallpaper, a dark and moody paint color, or bright accent decor. With dark greens, blues, or even shades of black paint becoming popular, there are many different options to play with color. Hand towels also offer opportunities to add bright pops of color into a small space.
Wallpaper has become easier than ever to install, and is even renter-friendly with peel-and-stick varieties on the market. Just be sure to test it on a small area before going all in on your apartment walls. Using these bold decor options can make your small space feel bigger as well as add a fun element to your home, regardless of your design style elsewhere.
What’s old is new again
There is a rising popularity of thrifted furniture and decor, as well as a call back to 70’s styles. Shag rugs, low furniture, and dark woods are beginning to make a return to the design space, creating cozy rooms that you can’t help but sink into. Sustainability is in, and what better way to reuse than to visit your local flea markets and thrift stores? This also provides a way to discover unique pieces that your guests won’t find anywhere else. These are a few ways that people are incorporating more personality and charm into their previously cookie-cutter homes.
Pink is the new black
Probably partially due to the Barbie movie release, pink is making a comeback in interior design. Differing from the hot pink hues of the iconic toy, the pinks designers are reaching for are soft blushes and roses that subtly play a feminine role in homes. If you’re not sold on creating a Barbie Dream House, you can add small pops of the color through throw pillows, blankets, kitchen appliances, or coffee table books. With Peach Fuzz being named the new Pantone color of the year, there is no better time to add a feminine touch to brighten up your home.
Stay on trend
Just because you live in an apartment doesn’t mean you can’t make the space your own. Incorporating your favorite trends in with your personal decor is a fun way to freshen up the space and add your own take to the rooms. Luxury apartments help make your decorating job even easier with updated appliances. Many even include amenities that will serve as a source of inspiration as you plan your next design refresh.
