As environmental awareness grows, there's a shift towards using sustainable, recycled, or upcycled materials in home furnishings and decor.
This trend emphasizes a deeper connection with nature. It incorporates natural elements like indoor plants, natural wood, and stone, as well as designs that mimic patterns found in nature.
With more people working and studying from home, spaces that serve dual purposes – like a guest room that doubles as a home office – are in demand.
Deep blues, forest greens, and rich burgundies are becoming popular, often complemented by matte finishes and metallic accents.
There's a resurgence in the appreciation for vintage, antique, and retro pieces, blending old-world charm with contemporary design.
Decor is now often integrated with technology. This includes voice-activated lighting, smart mirrors, and furniture with built-in charging ports.
From bouclé and shearling to chenille, textured fabrics add depth and tactile appeal to interiors, whether it's in upholstery, cushions, or throws.
As people become more globally connected, decor elements from various cultures, especially from Africa, Asia, and South America, are being incorporated into modern homes.
Contrary to the minimalist trend of past years, maximalism celebrates abundance. It involves mixing patterns, bold color choices, and layering decor items to create a rich, curated look.
