Home décor and design trends change year to year, but there are some home décor innovations that are destined for long-lived infamy. We put so much effort and time into creating the perfect home, going to countless furniture stores to find one-of-a-kind home décor items that will elevate the style of our home and capture our personalities. The modern home demands not only that individuals love the spaces they have created, but that these spaces can be inspirational and inviting on multiple levels (including, but not limited to, prospective future buyers or renters).
Home décor is a never-ending showroom of new innovations and breakthroughs in the home design sector. As new trends are phased out, old ones shift into gear to replace them, finding their fifteen minutes of fame in the chaos. The particularly exciting trends outlast their fifteen minutes, going on to become timeless favourites in home décor around the world. And then there are the unique home décor pieces that sit somewhere between the two ideologies, somehow remaining relevant throughout the times without earning the title of a ‘timeless design tactic’. There are three home décor trends that have already made their mark, and are set to be infinite “in betweeners”.
Less is more
Minimalistic hues add the perfect touch of sophistication and personality. While bright, daring colour schemes have a way of becoming iconic in the right setting, less is more in home décor – having minimalistic hues that add a subtle touch of elegance is the perfect way to spruce up the home’s décor while giving it some personality that is unique to you. Additionally, minimalistic hues are the perfect way to add resale value to the home, should that be something of interest later down the line (or even now).
A touch of sparkle
Agate wallpaper is one of the more unexpected, but more ‘wow’ features that can be incorporated into home décor and design. This home décor trend does not quite make it into the hall of timeless fame because it is, what so many refer to as, an acquired taste. While agate wallpaper does not appeal to everyone, it has the ‘wow’ factor that every homeowner hopes to achieve with their home décor choices. Styled in behind the perfect pieces of furniture, agate wallpaper has the potential to elevate a space from the ordinary to the extraordinary.
Geometric patterns are the new floral designs, and as such they are one of the hottest home décor and design trends around the world right now. Homeowners incorporating geometric patterns into the home is not necessarily a new trend, but it is one that has recently made its way back into the hall of the all-stars, firmly taking its place among the most beloved design tactics of the modern home décor trade. Geometric patterns are a fantastic way to incorporate some personal design strategy while maintaining the generalised appeal that is so often regarded as “curb side appeal”. And, like the classic floral designs, geometric patterns have a unique way of being able to withstand the test of time – provided that they are used sparingly throughout the home.
