She has an unmatched eye for design, so listen up as she points out eight top interior design trends worth incorporating in your home.
8 Interior Design Trends to Try Today
Trend: Acrylic Furnishings
A surprisingly versatile trend, acrylic can work in every space, no matter your style. “The look is clean and modern,” Kristen explains. “Acrylic furnishings give architectural structure without taking up visual space, which is especially important in smaller spaces.”
Acrylic accents are gaining traction among homeowners, and we don’t see the trend disappearing any time soon. Add whimsy to your design with these acrylic pieces.
A standby spring trend, florals bring the beauty of the season inside. This year, according to Kristen, you’ll see florals in exaggerated proportions and contrasting colors. Incorporating the trend through fabrics and wallpapers creates focal points without overwhelming the design. The powder room is a perfect place to play with wallpaper.
Trend: Layers of Texture
Heed the advice of Kristen and “usher in interesting touches to your décor with a mixture of textures that make you want to reach out, touch and explore. More is more when it comes to mixing finishes and textures.”
Trend: Matte Black Finishes
According to Kristen, matte black is making an appearance in many interior finishes, especially in kitchens and baths. The trend can be easily incorporated in your décor, too. “Softer than a glossy black, which may appear harsh, matte black is a welcomed addition to many design schemes,” she explains.
Trend: Wood Tones
This year, expect to see mixed finishes and modern wood tones that invite interest and add a contemporary touch. “Sleek, modern woods and finishes have a fresher look,” Kristen says of the growing trend. Don’t be afraid to turn to larger pieces that make a statement, such as a console with brushed brass and black finishes or a two-tiered console in faux burled wood.
Trend: Living Coral
Pantone’s color of the year “living coral” has quickly made its way into fashion and interior design. “This color’s sunny disposition adds a ‘pop’ and cheers up any room,” Kristen says, explaining the attraction to the bright and playful color. If you aren’t ready to paint your walls coral, start with a pillow or piece of furniture to tiptoe into the trend.
Trend: Geometric Patterns
Geometric patterns provide a bold touch that brings in life and warmth. Patterns can make a big statement when applied to a space through rugs, tile and wallpapers, or smaller accents, such as lamps, pillows and stools. Try bringing pattern into a minimalist design for a more contemporary application of the trend.
Trend: Natural Elements
Fresh, natural elements offer a sense of serenity, thanks to their organic makeup. The appeal of natural materials started with wood and exposed brick but has since expanded to concrete, rock and stone. Despite their simplistic nature, these elements have a sophisticated edge.
Finally, avoid being too trendy by pairing these pieces with traditional décor to create a clean, balanced design. Most importantly, enjoy your space!
