If you’re thinking about making some changes to the look of your home, you undoubtedly want to make sure you’re on trend. After all, what’s the point of upgrading your interior spaces if they aren’t “dressed to impress”? However, figuring out what, exactly, the top interior trends are during any given year can be a challenge.
In this guide, we break down the most popular decorating trends right now so you can renovate your space to suit not only your personal tastes, but to fit the latest and greatest styles. Remember, while some fads last awhile, it is often best to make sure that any extremely trendy changes are easy to replace – like throw pillows – rather than permanent alterations to your Carolina home.
Bring the outdoors in.
The COVID-19 pandemic changed how people live, work, and use their homes. As a result, bringing the outdoors in is more important than ever before. During the pandemic, people around the world learned how quickly their lives could change, so they began turning their homes into a personal oasis.
One of the best ways to accomplish this is to add as much greenery as possible to your space. Find out what indoor plants are best for the sun exposure they will get in your house before you go shopping. This way, you won’t waste money on plants that aren’t right for your space.
You can also embrace the natural world in other ways, like by removing heavy window treatments in favor of thin, linen blinds that will let light shine through while still giving your family privacy. You may also want to look for products made from eco-friendly materials like bamboo.
One current trend some homeowners are embracing is using dark, moody color schemes instead of the light, bright shades that have been popular for years. Whether you opt for a powder room that features bold black and gold tones, or a siding color that takes passersby to the dark side – literally – there are dozens of ways to channel this trend.
If you aren’t ready to commit to a major color change, you can add black or deep grey throw pillows to your bed or couch for an instant glam upgrade. Dark table settings are another way to give this trend a try without a huge commitment.
Focus on boho.
Bohemian trends have been a staple in the interior design world for years, and it certainly doesn’t seem as though they are going anywhere anytime soon. Boho style goes hand-in-hand with the natural trend, and you can’t go wrong adding a boho pouf to your living room or a rattan light fixture to spruce up a boring bathroom!
Window treatments are another great way to add Bohemian style to your house. If you’re on a tight budget, you might even want to consider tying inexpensive, eclectic-looking scarves together to create one-of-a-kind curtains that will look like you picked them up from a market in Marrakesh!
