Design Inspired By Nature

When we think about design and decor inspired by nature, it goes above and beyond adding a few house plants to the mix. Our natural environment and the beloved quirks, cracks, and crevices behind Mother Nature have given homeowners the craving to incorporate sustainable furniture, earthy hues, and unrefined textures. With more people concerned about the safety of our planet than ever, incorporating design inspired by nature is a trend to consider.

Multifunctional Spaces

Open floor plans may be in, but many are looking for ways to create invisible boundaries and influence distinct multifunctional spaces. Here are some of the more recent popular trends we’ve seen in creating separate areas within large, open floor plans:

Using furniture for division: We see this trend used in most open floor plans that crave more structure — floating furniture near the center of the room is a simple way to maximize your space while adding division between specific areas of your home.

Investing in dividers: Classic dividers can be used to create more concrete lines of division in an open floor plan.

Making invisible lines with color: This can be a fun way to create lines of division in your living space, just make sure that the hues coordinate with each other to avoid a cluttered, disjointed feel.

High-tech Furniture

Traditional interior design and decor have emphasized furniture, texture, and color. These elements are still just as important as ever, but the digital landscape has made incorporating high-tech furniture and features into the design another priority for many homeowners. You can start small and add a few digital elements to your living space, or you can go all out and create your very own smart home. No matter the pace, there’s no stopping this trend.

Asian-Inspired Theme

From the 1920s through the 1950s, design periods such as Art Deco, Hollywood Regency, and Mid-Century Modern show influences from Asian style that continue to live on throughout home design and decor. The modernization of the Asian style can be used throughout homes via original artwork, architectural curves, and more. Black and white pop up in most cases of Asian-inspired design, a timeless color pairing that you can emphasize for decades. Distinct lines within architecture can also be considered Asian-inspired. This style can help you create a space that feels more uniform and concrete.

Mid-Century Modern Theme

Mid-Century Modern is a theme that’s been relevant for decades with no signs of stopping. Even if you consider Mid Century modern too far from your personal style, there are so many important elements we find throughout new age modern that has been influenced by the former. This theme began and flourished as the ideal and most prominent architecture and furniture design in the U.S. during the post-World War II years. It was inspired by the European artists who fled to the U.S. from Germany, such as Walter Gropius, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, and Marcel Breuer.

Making A Statement With Bold Colors

If there’s one thing designers and homeowners alike can agree on, it’s that neutral isn’t going anywhere. Simplicity and achromatic palettes inspire people to enjoy the little details in their homes with minimal distraction. Some simple — yet effective — ways to incorporate bold colors into your home include:

For a drastic statement: Paint walls or furniture. Accent walls can help you achieve this look, but an entire room painted with a vibrant color can take things to the next level.

For a mild statement: Incorporate bold accessories. Choose a single daring color to use throughout the room for a uniform yet fun statement.

It's All In The Details

Instead of designing with straight lines and neutrality, design with more attention to detail. This trend isn’t only important from a design standpoint, but it’s also essential from a storytelling perspective. Curves in furniture and architecture can give a living space more character and depth, influencing a space for creativity and free thinking. Paying closer attention to detail in your design adds so much value to your living space. It turns an element of your room into a conversation starter instead of an overlooked piece of furniture. It uses nontraditional decor that encourages you to take a chance and step outside of your comfort zone.
