2019’s Hottest Interior Design Trends
‘As we evolve, our homes should too,’ to quote Suzanne Tucker, the author of the book, The Romance of Design. Achieving this requires homeowners to keep up with modern design trends that keep changing by the season. Different home decorating ideas come in out of season each year as people adjust to the changing technology and cultural evolutions. All the more strategic, and purposeful. They range from decor trends, materials, finishes, color, patterns, and furnishings. For 2019, nature integration, maximalism and technology appliances are said to be the hottest interior design trends.
Integration With Nature
Biophilia is an environmentally friendly approach to design that is catching on all over the world. It involves people seeking to connect to and rekindling the relationship between humankind and nature. The use of natural organic materials like wood for floors, stone, clay, plant life, and anything else that mimics the look of nature has become a key method of rebuilding this connection. People are also moving towards natural lighting and air conditioning by incorporating the use of large windows that let in light and air. These help to blend the nature outside with the internal space. The use of indoor plants for interior design is becoming more popular by the day. Not only do they fill empty spaces and give the room life, but also plants like the snake plant and the Boston fern, add sophistication, personality, and pizzaz to the property.
Technological innovations have given homeowners home appliances targeted to make their life easier and more convenient. For example, Wi-Fi enabled coffee makers can be programmed to brew coffee as you drive back from work, and 4 door smart fridges can make grocery lists by analyzing their content. Washing dishes is listed among the most contentious household chore by the Council of Contemporary Families. It, therefore, goes without saying that the dishwasher is one of the greatest technological innovations of all time. Smart locks, colorless TVs, under counter refrigerators, and double ovens are among the tech gadgets that can revamp your home into a modern contemporary stylish one.
The idea of a stylish home over the last few decades had minimalistic tendencies: neutral colors, similar tones, few furniture pieces, and a single focal point. The past two years, however, have seen a decisive turn in paving the way for maximalism in interior design. When looking to bring oomph and style into your space, a maximal spirit will allow you more freedom when it comes to interesting decorative objects. Maximalism gives you more freedom to follow your instinct, which in turn will make the design process much easier. The key to getting maximalism right is to stick to no more than three contrasting patterns, colors and finishes for a more timeless take that won’t won’t feel tiring soon. More of these will make the room appear cluttered.
The consumer, however, is the one that dictates what works best for them in the end. It is therefore of importance to understand your personal sense of style beforehand. Identify how you want your space to feel, whether traditional, formal, modern, hipster or elegant. Figure out what colors you are more attracted to and which colors on the color wheel pair divinely with them.
