1. Comfortable sectionals
The focus of our living areas is more about relaxing and being comfortable these days than looking chic and flawless. This perhaps explains why it’s all about sprawling sofas in soft, come-hither materials this year. And what’s not to love about this trend? Large corner sectionals are flexible and functional in any space. Additionally, soft, luxurious upholstery, such as velvet, is an important feature of these sofas in order to increase their comfort appeal. If you want this look, Multiyork sofas have a great range of corner couches that you may wish to check out. Dress your beautiful sectional couch in elegant throws and cushions for the ultimate look.
2. Modern versus classic
Mixing modern and vintage styles is another interior design trend predicted to be hot this year. This is particularly popular in dining areas, where modern white leather chairs are matched with rustic, farm-style dining tables. This creates an eclectic and intriguing style and is a great way to draw attention to each element. Don’t be afraid to experiment with contrasting pieces in other parts of your home. A classic roll top bath looks great against an ultra modern background. A chandelier and vintage mirror also work well in a contemporary styled living room and bedroom.
3. Library decor
Ceiling high shelves full of books adds a certain elegance and interest to interiors. Library chic is regaining popularity this year in both modern and classic homes. It doesn’t need to be dramatic to work. Bookshelves on the walls of your bedroom, living room or hallway will make a stunning addition to your home. For an individual touch, leave some spaces between your rows of books to add attractive ornaments such as a vintage style glass domes with large shells inside. If your shelves are up high, consider adding a ladder for practical and aesthetic reasons.
4. Geometric design
Geometric design has been featuring heavily on the catwalks recently, and it seems interior designers have fallen for this trend in a big way too. Honeycomb and hexagon shapes are featuring in wallpaper, fabrics and tiles. Furniture pieces, particularly armchairs and coffee tables are also featuring geometric lines. For a subtle touch, artwork featuring simple polygons would look perfect. If you are keen to invest more in this trend, a feature wall with geometric patterned paper or a hexagon shaped rug are both chic options.
5. Statement lights
In the same was as statement heels and bags are eye-catching, the statement light aims to grab the attention of whoever walks in the room. With it comes to this trend, the rule is the bigger and bolder the better. Fixtures using multiple bulbs and lots of reflective materials for maximum light are all making a statement this year. As are those that hang very low above tables.
We hope you find this information inspiring for your interior design project this year.
