Look for layered items and textured pieces, including furniture. Everything from walls, wardrobes and doors to desks and coffee tables will have more panelling, be more decorative and intricate and have more slat-like grooves.
Another trend will be ‘Japandi’, the blend of Scandinavian functionality and design with Japanese rustic minimalism. It is a simple, timeless and functional design style that evokes creative harmony. It’s an earthy look that frequently adds some greenery as well.
Green walls are in. Not forest green, but more muted and softer greens. After what we’ve gone through with the pandemic, green has been shown to decrease stress and help us feel calmer. This trend will help inspire a reconnection with nature.
Textured walls are still a thing and will continue to be. Plan to see three-dimensional carved wood and 3D-looking tiles and wallpapers that beg you to reach out and touch them. Rugs hung on the walls will give rooms a cozier feel.
Kitchens have become even more central with so many working remotely and spending more time at home. Fewer trips to the grocery store have highlighted the need for plenty of storage, with plenty of cupboard space and even separate pantries.
All aspects of health and wellness continue to be paramount, especially mental well-being. Think home gyms and opulent bathrooms. Some luxury add-ons include steam functions and aromatherapy in showers and jacuzzi tubs.
The home office is here to stay. Expect to see work areas added to living rooms, pull-down desks in kitchens or floating desks in bedrooms. Wall units that convert to work spaces and screens for privacy will be more common.
