A home reflects the owner’s personal style, but it also reflects what trends it follows, whether they are outdated or still very much in style. Trends are a great way to dress up your home, but they should not take over your style because they come and go. Interior Stylist & Founder of Walls and Things Janavi Javeri shares her views on trends that will fade out and trends that will stay this year.
TRENDS THAT WILL FADE OUT
Having a fairy-tale moment, the trend is no longer to be entertained, as the “less is more” theory probably holds more relevance. People today want to simplify things, and that is reflected in their choices for interiors.
Textures are so in, that no more smooth surfaces can be seen in the homes. From walls to fabrics, furniture to furnishings, rigid aesthetics are fading away, and new textural trends are on the rise.
A very safe choice for any place, neutral monochromatic colour schemes will fade out eventually and no longer be the highlight to accentuate any space.
It is a big no-no, statement furniture and accent pieces are interesting enough to instantly uplift the entire space, and hence the unnaturally curated and gathered look will bid adieu this year.
While not a proper farewell, the trend is surely fading away as people are opting for intentional spaces that are mapped out for specific needs.
TRENDS TO LOOK OUT FOR
Neutral tones have been popular for a long time, but bold colours are making a comeback. Colours that define mood can be seen adorning a wall or a statement piece to be the highlight of the space.
They were never out of trend ever since the concept was developed and they are here to stay for a while. Wallpapers, or textures, people thrive to create an accent wall to anchor their space.
In recent years, the old classic English home vibe has become a huge trend on social media. And it appears that it will continue to grow because it is a great way to add character to your space.
The trend is set to accentuate your living a little more as there is no going back for flora and fauna indoors. Big planters, floral upholstery, natural textures, animal prints and everything close to nature will remain closer to the homes.
The movement has revived in the past few years and thanks God it has. Statement geometric details and symmetrical patterns with a sleek and clean look are going to streamline the interiors this year as well.
