If you are having some thoughts about home decoration this summer and you’re open to some of the modern trends then you’ve come to the right place. Trends come and go but that’s fine because moods and tastes also come and go, experts agree that it’s healthy and useful to change your home decor now and again, so why not try something different this time around.
Cottage Core is a style movement that developed in the 2010s and was popular with millennials and Gen Zeders, the appeal is in the romantic fascination with the past and old farmhouses in particular. The idea of inhabiting one became somewhat mainstreams and resulted in the home decor trend.
But you don’t have to sell your urban apartment and buy a cottage in the countryside to ride on this trend, that’s not what it’s about. You only have to take a trip to your local thrift store or search online for weathered furniture. Patterned cushions and curtains are also a great start.
The Japandi trend is not new, in fact, professionals tend to point to the long traditions between Japanese and Scandanavian interior decoration trends. Still, it has hit the internet recently and people love the combination of rustic minimalism paired with comfy hygge.
If you want to make a start with Japandi style in your home this summer you should go for some plain colors that offset and complement each other, such as shades of blue, and purple. You should also go for linear furniture with a rustic edge. Finish your place off with all things hygge.
One trend that is set to take off this year is mirrored furniture. It has not featured much in style trends in recent years but it is starting to gain momentum as people recognize the excellent benefits of having mirrored furniture in the home.
Mirrored furniture creates the illusion of more space with the mirror effect, it also lets more natural light into the room and blends well with almost any decorations, so you can change things often. Mirrored furniture includes mirrored dining tables, mirrored units, mirrored bedside cabinets, mirrored drawers, and mirrored lamp tables.
Earth tones never really go away in terms of home interior decoration trends, they just ebb and flow like the rocky valley rivers. The reason is that earth tones are calming, inviting, super flexible and very inviting. You can feel at home with earth tones.
Earth tones are the colors red, yellow, green, brown, and black, but various in-between shades can be used more exactly to create the color scheme you want. This summer you’ll be happy to hear that earth tones are in as they denote security and comfort.
Another trend that is on the rise this summer season is Color Pops which combines frugality with creative self-indulgence. Well, not quite, but it does give you the creative freedom to express your seasonal colors without a hefty budget.
Decide on your favorite color for the season and invest time shopping for items and fabrics that provide your rooms with some accents. This might means lamps, cushions, curtains, or even vases with themed flowers in them.
