8 Best Decor Trends Of The Year!

Finest Decor Moments of 2019!

As 2019 draws to a close, here’s a look back at some great design trends in the world of decor that promise to stick around a little longer. By Gazala

With lives getting busier, and homes getting more tech savvy and compact, 2019 saw a lot of trends especially for compact homes. Apart from that, it was interesting to note that many decor ideas of yesteryear came back in style too. Some old trends revived, some new trends paving way for more developments, and a great mix of a bit of this and that was witnessed this year. Here are some of the best takeaways from 2019 that are sure to continue their reign in the decor industry.

  1. Multipurpose furnishing

With homes getting compact, the need of the hour was multipurpose furniture that served more than one function. A chair doubling up as a bookshelf, a trunk used as a seat, or an ottoman with ample storage, there are so many creative multi-purpose pieces of furniture that you could choose for your home. What’s more, they are stunning to look and you can even splurge on one from your favourite designer, where utilitarian meets with brilliant strokes of aesthetics as well.

  1. Statement ceilings

From mirrored ceilings to wallpapers, a lot of designers have also experimented with using stone cladding to adorn ceilings. This is certainly a trend that we will be seeing a lot more of in the coming year. Get your creative juices going and make sure that when someone looks up within your home, they have something to be in awe of. Statement ceilings were an interesting design development that are sure to change the dynamics of interior design.

  1. Prints

Prints came back in style with wallpapers in home decor a couple of years ago. 2019 saw a lot of geometric prints along with tribal prints like Aztec. From delicate flowers adorning your walls to bold geometric patterns on your rugs- there is so much you could experiment with. When done right, prints can really enhance your decor and take it to another level with little investment and design intervention.

  1. Eco-friendly

More and more designers and home owners are choosing to design spaces that are enriched with natural beauty. Green walls, potted plants, lush and large indoor plants have been a massive trend in 2019 and may continue in the coming year as well. The need to relax amidst greenery indoors was quite evident in many designs  that we saw this year.

  1. Boho

Boho has almost always been a preference that never entirely went out of style. Along with flamboyant aesthetics, boho is back and how! A mix and match of different styles of seating, contrasting mix of colours and bold combinations of patterns are making a statement while minimalism has its own niche audience. Team this with some lively potted plants and you are sure to have a warm and inviting space in your home. Boho is all about your taste, your aesthetic and your design intuition. It screams you, so if you are someone who has a vivid personality, opt for a boho decor aesthetic for your home, you won’t regret it.

  1. Brass

Move over stainless steel, brass is back in business. Yes, we are certainly going back in time. Brass was used extensively in home fittings until stainless steel and chrome finishes stole the show. However, 2019 saw a lot of brass in the decor sector. From large pots for your plant babies to classy brass fittings for your bathrooms, we saw brass becoming a large part of home decor. You too could update your home with this metal that was a rage this year and will continue to make a mark in 2020.

  1. Lighting fixtures

Another trend that we personally love from 2019 is the rage for beautiful lighting fixtures. From stunning vintage pieces to artisanal ones, there were so many amazing lights that left us in awe. Depending on your budget and aesthetic preference, you can choose from a wide variety of lighting fixtures that you can either customize or buy from a local market in your city. Floor mounted lights, pendants and almost all other chunky types of lighting fixtures were used to add an element of drama and elegance to a space. From homes to offices to restaurants, we are sure that you have noticed some really beautiful lights in 2019. This is another trend that you can watch out for in 2020.

  1. Warm colour palettes

While pastels had their day, warmer colours are now in trend. You may have noticed a slow transition in this decor trend from deep shades of red to burnt yellow and lush greens. There is quite the colour wheel that you can play with if you wish to do up your home in darker shades.

These are just a few of the many trends that were observed in 2019. You could combine two or more of the above to truly make your home ready for the next year. Whatever you do, make sure that your home is a reflection of who you are and that your spaces exude a welcoming and positive aura for the well being of its occupants. After all, we all love a stylish home, but what we love more, is a home that’s a snug haven for its residents.
