Trends have always been a statement about the economy and importance of materials to express the individual personality of each person, however trend tend to recycle over time, and certain features can linger longer then others. We have been carefully following trends the last few years and have predicted the new features that will make a surprising return from the past.
The biggest change we have seen in trends are the colour pallets, we are seeing cooler hues like Behr’s Blueprint, PPG’s Diamond, PPG’s Night Watch, Sherwin-Williams’ Cavern Clay, and Benjamin Moore’s Metropolitan being used to bring life to spaces after many years of beige and whites taking such a fore front in the home.
The 70’s are coming back in bold geometric patterns wall paper and tiles, they are showing up in unique spaces and we are LOVING IT! Hexagons and Fish Scales are some of the most featured, with the ever classic subway tile of course. If you are feeling more daring, agate or geode wallpaper have made continual appearances in home and event décor for accent walls in bedrooms, living rooms, dinning rooms, entryways, and even bathrooms.
Also displaying 70 chic is the lighting fixtures, both in shapes and colour tones, black with gold or brass trim have mimicked their older counterparts with LED and sustainability. These pieces both demand your attention, and also comfortable blend into the décor to create a seamless flowing design.
Canopy Beds are making a delightful return with a chic frame and light flowing fabric cover in creams and pale tones to create a fresh and elegant Scandinavian style. Some Velvet furniture pieces, throws, and pillows in deep blue, hunter green, or plum purple with contrasting counter parts in the floral Patterns found in rugs, carpets, and accent pillows have us squealing in delight!
Another trend that is gaining popularity is the return of brown flooring, not an orange colour tone that was found in your great grandmother’s home, but a softer and more naturally rich wood tone. Bringing warmth to the designs in a subtle manor. There are more gray toned flooring that have incorporated brown undertones to create a neutral pallet that can match multiple tones and hues.
Trends have always been about a statement and how we express out selves, with these popular items coming into the play in the design world, we are excited to see how they are used to express individuality and uniqueness of each space.
