Are you looking for some inspiration or a new design idea?? Check out what interior trends are currently booming in the industry.
BRIGHT PRIMARY COLORS
Bright colors are linked to geometric patterns and strong graphics. Black and white still make bold statements and play on patterns like grids and checkerboard are still hot. Red, blue, yellow, green and orange are still a big hit in interior design for accent pieces but look also for packaging, tableware, consumer electronics and graphic design.
BLACK IS STILL TRENDING
Black is an evergreen color, in some markets, such as in Scandinavia,more so than in others but yes, there is a common trend back to dark greys and black. You will find black as an accent color or total look on accessories and outdoor furniture turned into indoor pieces. You’ll also find black combined with metallics (copper and gold) and/or white, and any material goes: wood, resin, glass, ceramics, textiles, etc. Walls are being painted black again.
PASTELS + GREY
Pastels, mainly in combination with powder shades become more serious. Or shall we say less feminine? Think pearl grey, slate grey as new partners to combine with. It’s getting cooler and all shades of grey play a major role again in the interior world. It is understated, sophisticated and most interesting when warmer metals such as copper get into the mix.
Shiny metallic reflections on glass is one of the latest innovations capturing light and creating stunning mirror effects. Glass design is exploring new fields in color, shape, mixed materials and overall finishings.
Ink stains and/or watercolor effects on ceramics are one of the hottest trends of the season. The clash of mostly blue hues is intense and resembling illustrators’ work. Watercolors have been popular in fashion, stationary design, packaging, web design and textiles. As for tableware, watercolors or ink stain effects seem to be most effective when used with ‘less is more’ and reduced to a few color shades.
