Trying to infuse your space can be a tricky task. We all want our home to look chic, trying to stay on top of the latest home trends. Let’s check out the home decor styles that are left behind this year from color palettes to furniture, landscape designs and beyond.
1. (IN) Use of Hardware: In 2022 many seem to be integrating hardware designs. It gives a seamless, sleek and minimal look to balance the sense of design. Vertical lines of the hardware create a calming and ordered visual effect.
2. (OUT) Oversized Pulls: Oversized handles and pulls are outdated now. The old-style refrigerator handles that are used on cabinets and painted hardware is replaced by integrating hardware.
3. (IN) Floral Wallpaper: New floral patterns like celeste linen are in fashion that can be used for bedroom walls. It creates a unique look to the space taking back to old times. Floral prints are always in fashion and they don’t get outdated so soon. We can go for simple floral wallpapers with two combinations of colour design or can mix and match colours to add more glow to the room. It helps us to sooth our mind by keeping us close to nature.
4. (OUT) Geometric Prints: Geometric prints are out of fashion now and in the coming years granny – chic British floral prints will become the trend. Floral prints make the room feel spacious. The unique designs and colours that we can mix and match with floral prints give us more ways to make our room look better.
5. (IN) Environmentally- Friendly Fireplace: In most of the houses where a fireplace is mandatory we have seen people choosing environmentally friendly ways to incorporate it. These eco-friendly Fireplaces are easy to install and no ventilation is necessary. They can be integrated easily with built-in furniture or used with a marble fireplace surrounded. We have many decorative models that are stand-alone pieces and can be plopped down in any room in the house.
6. (OUT) Conventional Wood Burning and Gas Fireplaces: Conventional fireplaces are outdated, they are hard to maintain and also contribute to CO2 emissions. The latest technology has made it easy for using many eco-friendly fireplaces that can be easily fixed and requires no ventilation. They require less maintenance, easy installation and cost-effective.
7. (IN) Kitchen Island with Cantilevered Eat-In Area: Many of us have experienced that our kitchen ends up as our hangout area out of all the other rooms in our home. Most of us love to cook and catch up with our family over conversation and food. Designing the kitchen island with a natural stone countertop that is equal to the height of the dining table is in trend now. Try to match the countertop with a cantilevered piece of relevant stone with that of the dining table to add a beautiful look, and it also provides comfortable seating.
8. (OUT) Traditional Kitchen Island: These traditional kitchen islands are not much to our comfort as it’s not easy to sit and eat peacefully. We require high counter height stools which are not easy to manoeuvre and also not child-friendly. This leaves us hard to fit in the space and enjoy the food.
9. (IN) Grand Millennial Style: Modern art and clean-lined furniture is what’s in trend now. Let’s incorporate Grand millennial style giving a traditional design a small twist. Let’s start to mix and match classic designs like scallops, natural fibre rugs, chinoiserie, topiaries and many others giving a contemporary edge. Trying to use light cream, sea green and other peaceful colours to bring in the natural light and space.
10. (OUT) Grey On Grey: 2010 has been saturated colors of grey. All the varying hues of grey colour combinations have gone back and now we are seeing a demand for much warmer toned palettes and rich accent colours. Starting off rich like red, blue and orange gives a unique structure to space. We all love our home and like to spend more time with family and friends in our living room. Using warmer colours gives the room a new look and a positive feel.
11. (IN) Bold Monochromatic: Most of us feel Monochromatic means going for pale colors. We can change this trend and start using cobalt blue, Kelly green or even aubergine to evoke monochromatic in a daring way. This adds elegance and increases our personality growth positively.
12. (OUT) Pale Monochromatic: The pale-coloured Monochromatic room colors like gray, white or taupe are Outdated. Warm colours and soothing colours are trendy that leaves the space calm and adds excitement.
13. (IN) Dark Painted Doors: Dark coloured doors when paired with good hardware gives an artistic look to the room. Rich colours add warmth and character to the room. Dark colour doors add fun to the place when the room is well decorated using good furniture.
14. (OUT) Standard Doors and Trim: Interior doors are mostly painted with standard white colour. The white trim colour makes the room look pale where we are missing an opportunity for a dramatic statement. Pale colours are dull to the eye and give a lonely feeling to the soul. It’s always good to use bright colours to add that extra spice to your home.
