Understanding Interior Design Trends
In fashion, a trend is typically thought of as a popular fad; it will be around for a short time and then fade away, only to re-appear years later for a whole new generation. Interior design trends take longer to develop but they also remain relevant for a longer period of time. For example, twenty years ago stainless steel appliances were only available for commercial kitchens, and now they are a popular design element for most kitchens.
Here’s a sampling of trends that are big on the home front this year.
Color Trends of Tomorrow:
Here’s a sneak peek of cutting-edge trends our forecasters have spotted on the horizon.
- Black is making a comeback in metals, trimworks, and architectural details – seen in window framing, shower enclosure framing, doors, knobs and pulls, and even cabinetry.
- Deep, Neutral Greens – Perceived as tranquil and earthy, this up-and-coming color trend can give the effect of new beginnings, new growth.
- Au Natural – a color/texture palette that is natural, without adornment. The opposite of artificial, this is a palette that is warm, soft, neutral, and raw. (Paint colors like Putty, Mushroom, and Dove paired with stains like Coriander, Alabaster, and Cashew).
