The thing trends is that they change quickly. Experts share their views on décor trends, which you should leave behind at the end of the year.
- White furniture and white paint were a rage this year, and gave an impression of opulence. But it is now outdated.
- Avoid expensive furniture clusters. Many homes use various sorts of costly décor items that display luxury. Every home should reflect the style and personality of the present time and of its owner.
- Placing fake plants in a drawing room is an old-fashioned. The same applies to mirrors and stuffed animals, too, that are usually showcased in drawing rooms of many houses.
- Avoid colored walls in a room. Instead, choose accent walls. It creates captivating design and everything in the rooms gets attention.
- The trend of portraying luxury at the entrance is no longer appreciated. A safe and comfy environment makes for a better reception. So, less opulence isn’t an idea.
- Don’t use themes to decorate all the rooms in your house. You’ll have to change it often, depending on what’s in trend at the time.

Build up a vintage-style scheme gradually. It’s the kind of look that needs layering so choose pieces over time that mean something to you. Add a few luxe elements such as rich fabrics and statement lighting to create a modern note.
Gone are the days of smooth porcelain or glass subway tile. I’m starting to see a lot of hand-thrown ceramic tiling that shows some natural variation, like Moroccan zellige tile.
You can use ceramic tiling to create backsplashes or cover entire walls. But handmade tiles are often more expensive than manufactured ones, so individual pieces can also be added as accents to cut costs.
Inspired by earthy color palettes and warm, natural textures, the Global Influence trend pairs perfectly with wooden, woven and rattan home accessories. Its bold safari feel is influenced by wildlife and African plains.
Taking influence from nature, nostalgia and the desire for a tropical getaway, living spaces will reflect the current situation we are faced with, embracing calming color palettes and familiar patterns that create a sanctuary in any home.
Industrial interior style often incorporates elements such as exposed stonework, high ceilings, wood and metal elements, and neutral colors.
A timeless trend taking inspiration from the 18th and 19th centuries, incorporating classic art, antiques and pieces with history. Classic traditionalism brings a sense of harmony and order to any living space, with a décor scheme that works together perfectly.
