Creative minds across the globe come together every so often and decide what is becoming popular in homes everywhere. Here are some of the latest interior design trends, curated by the team at IKEA, that you should get behind.
1. Inspired by the Romans
Heads, vases and columns are now bringing history back into our homes. Although the Romans added a lot of detail, and a touch of extravagance to their architecture and interiors, statement pieces dotted around the home do an equally great job.
Curves are being celebrated everywhere, and we often see this element in sofas, chairs and ornaments such as vases. Non-traditionally shaped furniture is really driving the interior design game forward, and we are all for it!
3. Terrazzo and marble
This trend has stuck around for a while, and it doesn’t seem likely to go away anytime soon. Marble blocks in interesting shapes and sizes are increasingly being used for side tables and coffee tables.
Classic and effective, this trend is effortlessly timeless. The elegance of using stripes with a combination of lush and velvet materials is a staple and is seen most often in textiles and wallpaper.
5. Black cabinets
We seem to enjoy cabinetry that blends into the background while also adding to the overall impact of a room. Coupled with kitchenware made from natural materials that give off an earthy vibe, black cabinetry or cabinets in dark shades are the new cool!
6. Ceramics and colours
The 70s are making a comeback, this time in the form of brown tones and lots of bright hues, like orange and red coupled with irregular and imperfect finishes.
7. Flower trends
The latest trend in flowers seems to be the use of anthuriums and monstera leaf plants placed strategically throughout the house.
8. Vibrant colours
Colours are slowly making a reappearance in the little elements of our homes. Corals, reds, yellows, greens and other bright shades ultimately make the design scheme of a room look bold and vibrant.
9. Oversized nightstands
This is another trend that we see making a comeback. They complement oversized headboards and create a balance in the space – they are also great for extra storage!
There is a greater focus on bringing nature into homes nowadays. The connection that humans have to nature is being bridged by interiors that are made from natural materials, such as wood and stone.
