Hi there, aspiring designers and lovers of beautiful spaces! The field of interior design is always changing. As we enter a new era, the ability to combine design and function is an art form as much as a skill. We always have a pulse on what’s fresh and what’s coming up at Times and Trends Academy. Let’s get started on some of the ground-breaking interior design trends for the coming year without further ado.
1. The New Standard is Sustainability
Sustainable design is not a passing trend, but rather the way of the future as environmental concerns grow. Anticipate seeing more eco-friendly materials that look attractive and benefit the environment, such as bamboo, salvaged wood, and other recyclable materials.
2. Pastels and Earth Tone Colors
Monochromes, get over here! Earth tones are coming back in a big way, including olive green, burnt orange, and even some colours of brown. Use pastels to balance them out for a palette that feels both modern and vintage.
3. Naturalistic Style
This isn’t simply a catchphrase. The biophilic design incorporates natural elements, such as living walls and water features, into contemporary urban areas. Stress reduction is one of the many health advantages of this trend, according to some research.
4. Integration of Digital
The distinction between interior design and technology is getting fuzzier, thanks to innovations like smart lighting and linked dwellings. Anticipate a more smooth transition of technological devices into residential areas.
5. Multipurpose Areas
It is evident from the COVID-19 epidemic that homes must serve as more than just places to live. Increasingly, people are choosing multipurpose furniture and designs that let a living room double as an office.
6. Zoning is in; open floor plans are out.
Although open floor designs were popular for a long time, individuals are increasingly designing separate “zones” in areas to provide privacy and a sense of community in the house.
7. Variation in Texture
Faux furs, velvets, and more. Any space can gain depth by experimenting with different textures to create a rich, layered appearance.
8. Art Deco and Retro Blending
Modernism will always have a place, but retro and vintage elements—especially those from the Art Deco era—are becoming more and more popular when they are skillfully blended into modern designs.
