Trends exist everywhere and they can be a positive thing since they can keep things evolving and exciting. Change is always welcome since it brings the opportunity to keep improving too. During the current pandemic, you may be feeling a little more creative whilst stuck indoors. If this sounds like you then you should consider the following new decor ideas for your home.
1. Abstract energy
This is considered to be a free-spirited design and ultimately takes inspiration from abstract artwork. Abstract energy design involves bright or playful blocks of colour, geometrics and sometimes even hand sketches. This type of decor is all about creating an environment of character and expression. The colour palette you go for can entirely depend on the type of mood and setting you want to create. This type of decor, however, will be quite a statement piece and should go in a focal part of the house.
2. Honest comforts
This type of decor focuses on textiles. Whether this involves faux fur, knitwear, throws or cushions, it is all about creating a comfortable and inviting space. It is a great way to get ready for the winter months as you may enjoy more cozy evenings and weekends at home. During the current climate, it is a great way of creating relaxing reading and workspaces in the home.
3. Structured Simplicity
This type of decor is simple and essentially stripped back. It keeps decor to a minimum and helps to create a calm space and environment with as little clutter and visual noise as possible. It helps create a space of unwinding and regeneration.
To create structured simplicity you should go for soft and neutral colours. You can also pair it with an accent colour to add more character to a bedroom or living space.
The past few seasons have seen an increase in popularity when it comes to Japanese culture. Japandi culture is essentially a hybrid of Japanese and Scandinavian styles. This is evident in decor textiles as well as designs. Graceful birds and soft silks have become more widespread on the market.
If your home is essentially your own personal sanctuary then Japandi will help you create the perfect relaxation space for you. It will help you combine the sanctuary element with the clutter-free and sustainable approach. The colours that go with this type of design usually involves clean and predictable lines and calm colours. Light greys, soft greens and pale blues work well. A mix of light scandi furniture and dark Japanese woods will also complement each other.
In the current climate where most people are spending more time at home you may be itching to create the perfect sanctuary for you. Choosing the right design and colour scheme for your home can have a huge impact on how your home feels and how it makes you feel too. If you’re unsure of where to start, then professional home designers are a great place to start. They will be able to advise you at every step of the way to make sure you make choices that are going to help you achieve the home feel for you.
