Simple and effective: white or pastels
The need for calm and softness pushes us to choose white or pastel colors, which help to create a cozy, restful and serene atmosphere in our home. White has the advantage of being able to match easily with other colors or patterns present in the room, while highlighting them. An efficient and risk-free decoration trend !
Scandinavian colors intensify
If Scandinavian-style decoration remains trendy, Nordic colors are destined to become denser, deeper. Although the white remains very present, the gray, the beige, the blue or the green become darker, for a style of decoration and a more cordial environment. You can also combine these cool colors with brighter colors, such as yellow or pastel pink.
Natural and raw shades to recharge your batteries
There is a craze for natural materials and colors, conducive to relaxation, back to basics. This decorative trend is directly inspired by raw materials such as light wood, slate, sandstone… We are dealing with colors close to those found in nature, neutral and true tones, which have not been reworked.
The intensity of bright colors
Associated with a soft color, mixed with a careful design, dense colors are making a comeback and bringing cheerfulness and luminosity. Curry yellow, aquatic blue, emerald green… Intense colors can work just as well with touches as well as in addition to a softer color or another bright color.
Dare to go green!
Soothing and refreshing, green takes an increasingly important place in our interiors. Available in all facets, khaki, pine green, mint green, water green… this tone will bring personality to certain rooms in your home: a hallway, a kitchen or a bedroom, for example.
Blue enters a new era
Very popular, blue is evolving towards more natural shades, with more character: mineral blue and midnight blue are becoming essential. Depending on the intensity of the blue chosen, it can be combined in different ways: with mineral gray or earth brown for mineral blue, with beige or yellow for midnight blue.
Each style of decoration has its own furniture!
For this new year, the trend is to mix elegance and character of furniture. Depending on the colors chosen for the floor and walls, it is advisable to decorate and enhance your interior with the appropriate furniture: chairs of different styles, a sofa that looks like you… The most important thing is to play on them. contrasts by avoiding “tone on tone” at all costs.
Combine mismatched chairs!
To give personality to your dining room, go for an offbeat style by placing different chairs around the table. Backrest, seat, curves… Completely vary the styles! This mix of genres will allow you to energize the room concerned.
Choose the sofa that suits you
The choice of the sofa is one of the most difficult in an interior design, since it involves studying many characteristics: length, color, shape, etc. Ranging from a simple sofa to one with removable angles, from leather to velvet, it is the essential element of a living room. Do you prefer to transform your current sofa rather than buy a new one? Replace the legs with casters or add wooden legs if there are not already. Change the cover (color and material) to create an impression of novelty in your living room. Arrange cushions of different sizes and colors.
A shelf with a refined style
The shelf is an essential piece of furniture, whatever the style of decoration. We favor a light, uncluttered structure, so that it blends into the atmosphere of the room. Choose thin walls and shelves to maximize this effect. In this way, the objects placed on this shelf will take on their full importance. Whether it is colorful, metallic, made of raw wood, or even leather straps, do not hesitate to vary the styles.
The styles of decoration that are popular!
If everyone has their own taste in terms of decoration, certain styles of decoration are found more often than others in our interiors.
The cocooning atmosphere inherited from the Scandinavian countries
When autumn and winter approach, you feel the urge to transform your living room into a cozy nest. For this, we favor shades of white, pale blue and beige, which we associate with more pronounced colors. Create a warm atmosphere by multiplying the lighting of different styles and intensities (lamps, lampposts, candles, LED garlands…). Finally, choose wood furniture, possibly paired with metal, and add a thick rug on the parquet, cushions and throws on the armchairs and sofa, and blackout curtains on the windows.
The return of rustic and raw materials
Do you want to revamp your bathroom in a decorative style that combines tradition and modernity ? You just have to mix the textures of the wooden structures for your sink unit and the mirrors with the modernity of a lacquered white washbasin. This will structure the space without weighing it down and add character to the room.
The bohemian and oriental spirit
The oriental style of the 1960s and 1970s is back in fashion for interior design. Go for warm colors (orange, purple…) mixed with a little green or turquoise for a Moroccan atmosphere, or shades of blue and white for a Tunisian atmosphere. Choose low furniture: low sideboard, bench, nesting tables… On the floor, put a large oriental rug, large cushions, and scatter lanterns, vases… Finish your decor with a beautiful hanging lamp to create an atmosphere sifted.
Contemporary and modernity take on large volumes
If your living rooms are large enough, you can try a contemporary style decoration. Indeed, this style of decoration is purified, aesthetic and minimalist while remaining functional. We will therefore favor multifunctional furniture and decorative objects in natural or original materials: earth, metals, transparent materials such as glass or plexiglass, waxed concrete, honeycomb foam… And contrary to certain received ideas, the colors linked to the modern style is not limited to black and white! For your walls, you can absolutely choose a beige, an anthracite or a more intense color such as blue, pink, or even yellow, if you feel like it!
Decorative trends: objects to add a final touch to your decoration
If the furniture, the walls and the floor help to create the decorative style of a room, do not neglect the objects, which will emphasize the decorative atmosphere of each room in your home.
The table lamp
Whether you want to install it on the entrance console, on a side table next to your sofa or on a desk, the lamp adapts to all styles. Opt for a totally metallic lamp with a large bulb to contrast with the material of the furniture. Make it a decorative object in its own right on your furniture by avoiding overloading its contours.
Whether for a cozy or industrial style, wooden boxes will blend perfectly with your interior. Stacked on top of each other to create a storage unit, or distributed next to each other on the floor, they will give a rustic touch to your interior.
In the bedroom, in the hall or in the bathroom, the mirror is a central element. It will make it possible to enlarge the room thanks to this effect of depth. Contours in wood or aluminum, rounded or rectangular, mirror shapes and sizes are very diverse to match all styles.
To put in all your rooms, the pendant light is the trendy touch that will complete your decoration. Above a kitchen island or your dining table, in your bathroom or in the hallway, the different types of pendant light will add sophistication to the place. Rattan, industrial light bulbs or metal light fixture, as many styles as you can consider.
