There’s no escaping trends, whether you make an attempt to replicate the styles you’ve seen in that home magazine or whether you’ve been oblivious to what is in vogue. Each style sets a tone of its own.
While 2020 and 2021 have firmly set us in remote working mode, as well as in the confines of our homes for the most part, the trends that have evolved ever since involve both flexibility and vitality. We now indulge ourselves in absolutely anything that makes us feel more comfortable and relaxed in our home, as well as anything that allows us to be even a little bit different to everyone else.
Be it first time homeowners who have seized the opportunity to create a stunning haven for themselves, or those who have taken the bold decision to renovate, or perhaps even those who are simply looking for some inspiration at the moment, people seem to increasingly opt for ideas and designs that resonate with their own tastes and personality. Highly targeted ads and posts on social media, Instagram being the most popular one, followed by Pinterest for lots of design inspiration, are now helping individuals ascertain their choices by asking them relevant questions. This adds to the overall customer experience and in turn creates trends to watch out for.
While trends may be defined as seasonal or those that continue over years, everybody looks out for something that goes well with developing their hygge. The trend that never goes out of fashion is Minimalism– unleashing the subtlety of pastel shades onto your walls or perhaps the couch. Popular shades are beige, off-white and cream. You may also consider the interior of your front door to match the hues to that of your living area.
The last year has taught us all a lesson, giving us time to introspect and run down memory lane. Now, more than ever, it can be said that people have become more grateful, trying to find happiness in the littlest of things and allowing nostalgia run through them- memories of their childhood home, the cosy rugs they once couldn’t part with, the kitchen tops they sat on chatting away to their mothers and whoever else. It can be safe to say that people are now wanting to replicate this look. This is the Grandmillenial trend.
‘Healthy is happy, simple for the win’ is what follows next – the ongoing and growing concerns around the sustainability of the planet. People are also actively looking for shades or artifacts that resemble this sustainable theme, something that’s not harmful for their setting and which is low maintenance.
