Minimalism and quality
The tendency towards minimalism has been a trend for quite some time. The motto "less is more" is implemented by figuring out what stays and what can be removed.
Organize your living space according to these priorities. You need to be consistent with this process and return to each room every few months and look at it with new eyes.
You will always find that there is more to simplify, but that is the fun of it.
Give all objects an exclusive place to keep the storage areas in the room clean.
For this reason, it pays to invest in quality over quantity and choose timeless classics in furniture and accessories.
Avoid impulsive purchases and low-quality fashion items because they often bring only short-term joy and strain your wallet in the long run.
Choose well-made pieces that are designed to last and withstand daily use.
Japandi and distant shores
Scandinavian and Japanese style are already quite minimalist, simple and functional. This trend is known as Japandi style.
Here, the white color dominates the environment, while natural wood or natural and organic materials complement the design.
The goal is to create free, open and bright spaces. The furniture design of pure lines combines the traditional with the modern, always focusing on the functional.
Far shores and vacation are things we always long for and, mostly every year, come far too short.
The laid-back lifestyle of Hawaii has therefore been reinterpreted this year and invites us to dream.
The Distant Shores trend uses classic floral patterns for a contemporary touch, offering tropical brightness, subtle mono tones and soft colors.
Tropical leaves and florals can be used to create an extra vacation effect.
Simple digital prints or images with complementary color palettes enhance any interior space and emulate the varied Hawaiian landscape.
Cottagecore: modern rustic living highlight
Especially after the events of the last year, the desire for nostalgia and comfort is growing.
Incorporating elements of cottagecore in the interiors creates a modern rustic look.
Cottagecore was something that started very simple, but now can be mixed with different styles and thus staged glamorously.
Elegant vintage style barware, gold plated flatware and statement gold accessories keep the style and keep the budget in check.
This look adds popular design highlights and appeals to anyone who wants to combine modern home comfort with character details.
Cottagecore works ideally in living spaces that already have some interesting features, such as wooden beams, floorboards or paneled walls, but can also be recreated with a balanced ratio of old and new pieces that work together harmoniously.
Reclaimed wood is the core material that holds this look together.
Arts and Crafts trend: arts and crafts as an eye-catcher.
The new Arts and Crafts trend is sometimes an extension of cottagecore, embracing the iconic 19th century movement that emerged from the Industrial Revolution.
The movement aimed to reform the way things were made and reverse the harmful effects of machine production.
The aspiration was to increase the value of handmade decorative pieces. The revival of Arts and Crafts is a trend that has been gaining prominence and momentum recently.
Many people appreciate the value of handmade and decorative pieces included in this fashion.
A look at Pinterest or Instagram shows endless inspirations that help to realize the Arts and Crafts trend in your own living space.
Vintage charm and art deco statements
Like last year, vintage charm and art deco statements are still in. Antique and repurposed retro pieces have their place in a personalized vintage scheme.
The secret is to transform the look instead of strictly reproducing it. This involves using bold colors, favorite pieces and a less-is-more approach for a vibrant, cohesive aesthetic.
Use contrasting elements to highlight the impact and interplay of furniture.
A vintage style is usually built up gradually. It's the kind of style that needs to be built up piece by piece to create a certain flair.
So, over time, choose pieces that mean something to you. Add luxurious elements here and there, like fine fabrics and statement lighting, to create a modern touch.
Art Deco style living rooms, much like the vintage look, have been on the rise for years and the design is perfect for modern decor due to its sleek minimalism and purity of lines.
It's a style that fits uncomplicatedly into living spaces with little architecture. Here it is necessary to play skillfully with old and new elements to give a room character.
Combine materials, styles and time periods to create a multi-faceted living room that is unique and suits your personality.
Sofas and armchairs become statement pieces when you swap standard neutral colors for trendy batik colors, big floral and bold patterns that add a vibrant touch to the room.
Global Influence Trend and Classical Traditionalism
Inspired by earthy hues and warm, natural textures, the Global Influence trend matches current home accessories in wood, fabric and rattan.
The adventurous safari feel is inspired by wildlife and african plains.
With warmer tones often favoring cooler grays these days, this is an important interior trend that can be easily translated into the living space.
The goal is to capture the aesthetics of global styles through unique and creative perspectives.
The influences of nature, vintage and the desire for a tropical vacation, reflect the current life circumstances we face and help us transform the interior space according to these needs.
The Global Influence trend embraces calming color palettes and exotic patterns that create effective contrast.
Classic traditionalism is a timeless direction inspired by the 18th and 19th centuries, combining classic art, antiques and pieces with history.
Classic traditionalism conjures up more harmony and order to any living space, with decor that works perfectly together.
It also favors symmetry, which can be seen in upholstered furniture that includes ornate scrolls, courtly stripes and classic damask.
This trend is in stark contrast to the modern, graphic geometries, which was often the focus last year.
Luxury touch and shabby chic
The definition of a modern style changes over time and a touch of luxury never hurts.
Home trends in 2021 refer to elegant luxury with elements of Art Deco from the 1920s.
Individual elements of the style are gaining a resurgence such as symmetrical room organization, gilded details, classy colors and lots of mirrors.
The sophistication of the 20s fits well with the classics and contrasts perfectly with the minimalism of the scandinavian style.
Again at the peak of popularity are expensive fabrics, marble, precious woods and metals. As for upholstery, velvet is one of the favorites.
Many furniture designers have included velvet upholstery in their fillings this season, especially in the color of precious stones such as sapphire, citrine, emerald and amethyst.
This new luxury touch is increasingly found in modified vintage furniture for a new chic.
Shabby chic and french Country Chic are modifications of the chic look, embodying faded elegance and a more rustic look.
To recreate the feeling of contemporary opulence, mix this style with vintage market finds.
Look for decorative accessories like chandeliers and mirrors that have not been perfectly restored, but have aged with character.
Chipped paint, faded fabrics and blemishes add to the charm.
