Nowadays, trends come and go so quickly that if we had a trend alert notification, we’d surely break our phones due to over-exhaustion. However, is an ever-changing landscape of taste in home decor and design such a bad thing? It’s fun and so refreshing to always be able to switch things up every once in a while anyway, so we don’t see any negatives there!
This is why we’ve put together an article listing all our favorite home design trends so far to inspire you! Realistically, it may be expensive to constantly buy new furniture every few alternate months or so, but this can come in handy if you’re planning to design a new home. That way, you can mix and match whatever you like, and make it uniquely yours. After all, it is your home and it should radiate you in the best way possible.
If you’re interested in our favorite home designs, keep on reading! We’ve got a few that we would absolutely love to share.
Goodbye Bar Carts
According to experienced interior designers, displaying your liquor on a bar cart is so yesterday. Having a bar cabinet offers more storage options and draws more attention to the space it’s in. If you have a designated space made for gatherings, having a bar cabinet can make for a great statement piece in it. This is great for when you have friends over, they’ll naturally gravitate over to it and commence mingling. Plus, it’s more sturdy than a cart.
Cementing It Down
In the past, cement in our homes usually meant an unfinished project. In today’s era, cement is a great accent to have for that industrial and rugged look. It’s all about playing around with textures and colors in this design age. From purposely unfinished cement walls to cement sinks, you can pretty much add this element to any part of your home. It’s an unexpected element for sure, but sometimes straying from convention can land you a win.

Making The Kids’ Rooms More Kiddy
From avian-themed rooms with painted storks on the walls to loud and bold rooms, we’ve come a long way when it comes to decorating kids’ rooms. Most parents enjoy getting creative with designing their kids’ rooms with a mix of patterns, textures, and colors. You can do this with kid-safe furniture too. Plus, you can play around with the storage options, or color-coordinate the toys, bedding, and rugs. If you like to go the extra mile, you could even get a canopy! Engage in your child’s imagination and encourage their creativity with this fun project.
From rattan baskets to wicker chairs, we’ve noticed this material is a huge trend in creating warmth in the home. For an elevated, shabby-chic look, add a dash of rattan to your home’s color palette. Throw in some baskets to use as storage options, or opt for an elegant rattan bed frame too. The intricacies in the rattan weaves are very aesthetically pleasing, and could also pass off as art in your home.
Ditch the Grey, Opt For Navy
Another one of our favorite subtle design trends is the color navy. We’ve noticed many people have abandoned the usual neutral and monochromatic palettes and gone for deeper shades like navy or dark greens. Not only are these colors associated with peace and tranquility, but the color theory has also shown that evokes feelings of calmness. Additionally, they aren’t too bold and work well with most colors.
Dining Rooms Are Coming Back
Open-concept homes have always been appealing, but we’ve also noticed the re-emergence of dining rooms being segmented from the rest of the home. Like any formal dining room, most people invest in a full set of chairs and a dining table. Since we’re mostly at home in this pandemic, having meal times together has become commonplace. Hence, we love this idea of having space set aside solely for dining together.

Adding a Pop of Color to Your Cooking Space
As you may have already guessed by now, we’re loving the idea of having more colors in our homes. Since retro appliances and furniture have made a comeback, their quirky colors have followed suit too. For example, the classic Tiffany Blue is a vibrant color to have and is a common retro appliance color you can coordinate with the rest of your kitchen. This switches up the atmosphere and aesthetic in your cooking space and creates a more inviting feel.
Mix and Match Patterns
Mixing patterns may always feel like a fashion faux pas, but not in this era. We love how mixing patterns create texture and dimension in the home. It gives a more personal vibe to your living space and is also very visually pleasing. If you’re looking for a sign to try maximalism, this is it! Do it!
Upcycling and Repurposing
Now that we’re becoming more environmentally conscious, we absolutely love how many homeowners and interior designers opt for second-hand items to upcycle and create sustainability. Furniture can contribute to a lot of our waste on the planet, so ensuring we’re more conscious of what we pick to put in our homes is a huge deal. Plus, second-hand isn’t always a bad thing, you can find a lot of gems if you look in the right places. Auctions or vintage stores have a lot of items that are in good condition and/or easily restorable.
Let There Be Light!
Since we’re going bold with our colors, patterns, and textures, it’s time to upsize our lighting too. Sometimes, statement lighting doesn’t have to be in the intricacy of its design, but its size. Simple lighting fixtures are easy to install, and still make a bold statement.
Homes are a special place for you to express yourself in, so no matter what you pick, make sure that it represents you well too. We hope this article has helped in inspiring your next decor project! Don’t be afraid to experiment around with our favorites, you might end up with something purely amazing.
