In the world of interior design, “trend” is a buzzword. It always answers homeowners’ common questions, “Where should I put that? How should I decorate this?”
2021 was unquestionably the year of COVID-19 vaccines and life-threatening variants, but it was also the year of growing and aspiring home décor trends. So, let’s take a few steps back to admire these past trends.
#1. Velvet, the New Norm
Tired of the same old trends?
Do you want to experiment with unique designs and exquisite styles?
Velvet has enchanted many with its supple touch and lush appearance since it first became popular in the fashion industry.
How about letting this glitzy style speak for your home?
Consider this: there’s something about a velvet armchair or a tufted velvet ottoman that makes them appear both expensive and comfortable.
It’s easy to see why velvet is the hottest trendy home décor fabric this year.
Here’s how to wear velvet in a classic, luxurious, and funky way:
- Velvet furniture will enhance the appearance of your space. Velvet chairs and stunning velvet sofas add more than just a feminine touch. Velvet can transform a drab room into a refined and chic one.
- By shaping a room with velvet textiles, you can add color and create a boho-inspired space.
#2. The Beauty of Large Tiles
“Large-format tiles will soon replace natural materials like concrete or Italian white marble,”
– From…um, sorry, forgot who said that?
Tiles, whether trendy or not, have always been a popular building material for flooring, tubs, showers, backsplashes, walls, and even countertops.
However, when it comes to making dramatic statements and stylish elements, only large tiles can handle such aesthetic details. Only a tile with a size greater than 16″ in length can truly define and enhance the appeal of large spaces such as an open floor kitchen and dining room.
Large tiles, on the other hand, can have the same stunning impact and unified look in small spaces. Just don’t be afraid to go with light colors.
#3. Combine Textures
If rustic looks and country color palettes are making a comeback, so is the basic texture mixing style.
Combining different layers of textures – classic stripes, modern florals, polished patterns, or glazed elements – is the key to creating a comfortable home and a rich decorating scheme.
#4. A Duo of Black and White
Who said black and white was out of date and unfashionable?
Many people may reject this simple choice at first glance, but if you have a good eye, you’ll immediately recognize the timeless and elegant touch brought by this classic color palette.
Whether you want to create a dramatic focal point or make a bold statement with a more contemporary approach, the black and white combination is the ideal way to achieve the perfect decorating balance.
Oh, and for those who believe that using blacks will add too much drama, there is a rule in home décor that states that “every space needs a little touch of black.”
Do you want to know how to combine black and white in your home?
- Do you want a stylish dining room?
Setting off a stunning black marble with tall white baseboard moldings is the best option.
- Use ivory or stark white walls and stark black artwork for a deeper but less contrasting look. Incorporate hints of red or gold into the black-and-white background to add a pop of color.
- When it comes to the bedroom, the desire to keep things comfortable, intimate, and personal outweighs all others. As a result, plain white bed linens with black furniture may set the right tone for such a private space. It is also recommended to use pink, green, yellow, or red accents.
- With soft, ivory white floors and deep black accessories and fixtures, this bold color palette is also ideal for small spaces.
- Using stark black rugs or painting the white walls works perfectly for a modern look. A sleek and modern focal point can be created with a black matte finish or a bright white touch.
