Cervone Deegan + Associates knows that many things play a factor in home design trends every year. While some popular trends are easy to identify and are expected like classic materials such as wood and stone, other looks and materials can sometimes be a shock. As we have seen during a recent pandemic as well as supply chain difficulties some things can have a sudden shift. Here are some of the top things being requested lately by homeowners per a recent poll by Houzz.
After several years of sticking with neutral paint shades including whites and grays, there has been a call for color now. Homeowners are getting more daring and want to have their homes reflect more of their personalities and be injected with some happiness via the use of color.
Along with color, a popular look now is getting back to hanging wallpaper. It is reported that with the pandemic changing how more people are spending time at home interesting wallpaper is helping create more bright and cheerful homes.
Speaking of having our homes be an oasis to relax and recharge, a warm and inviting kitchen is on the list of wants. An example of something like this is combining light cabinet tones, light woods, and warm lighting to achieve a warm look.
Green has become a very popular color these days when homeowners are picking the color of their cabinets. Everything from a pale to a dark shade and even with just on the upper cabinets or an accent island green is a common choice.
Cabinets made with a natural wood finish are also having their time of fame. Natural wood is a good choice to add warmth while bringing nature into the home. Popular selections are for light white oak cabinets to darker woods such as walnut or stained oak.
It is not frequent that a natural material will go out of style but they are certainly peaking in popularity these days. After a while where shiny tiles and mosaics were big, we are now seeing a draw over to quartzite and even still granite that has a lot of character.
The use of many different materials or “layered texture” is a phrase that is widely used these days. This means combining things like wood, metal, textured fabrics, and other surfaces that will create not only an interesting visual look but also one to cater to their sense of touch.
Rounded and curved furniture is a design direction that is seeing its time in the limelight now. Curvy furniture like sofas or organic-shaped coffee tables are being found across all styles of design, not just modern or contemporary. One of the great things about this shape is that it can be surprisingly versatile to fit in even tight spaces.
Clean lines where “less is more” are another furniture trend nowadays. The minimalist approach instills the idea of picking fewer, more special pieces rather than filling a space with lots of items.
Traditional Style with an Edge
Traditional design schemes are returning but this time we are seeing it being implemented in a more creative and fun way. The mix of patterns, softer tones, and the mixing of vintage pieces with a more exciting wallpaper are all good examples.
