All you have to do is walk through a few of the popular home décor stores to see what some of the top trends are. I always look at the colours in the current artwork and textiles. All the accessories are designed to complement them.
- Right now I see blue/green/turquoise everywhere in every décor element.
- Barn board and weathered wood furniture are all the rage. It reminds me of the pickled pine finish back in the 80’s. Although its new and exciting now, I really don’t think this trend will last more than 5-10 years max. similar to the pickled pine finish. I used to sell pickled pine furniture way back then and everyone loved it was different but the trend didn’t last long. Hey, this is only my opinion 🙂
- I do believe that the gray colour will continue to be a favourite neutral for many years. It’s nice to have the neutrals of gray, taupe and beige to choose from. They all work so nicely together too. Gray can look a bit cold and blah if you don’t add some of the warmer tones as well. Almost everything goes with gray which is why it has such long lifespan.
- Mixed metals are in. No longer are we only silver, only gold, only copper, or only brass. I love how all the medals are combined to make a room so much more interesting and it’s not nearly as limiting.
