Millennial Pink and blush tones dominated the fashion and design scene over the last several years. Many designers have shared their excitement to have these shades disappear along with other pastel hues. If you’re having a hard time letting go of pink, try opting for a more terracotta shade.
The stark white ultra-clean kitchen look is on its way out. Homeowners are shifting to warmer more inviting spaces by adding in colors like muted greens or warm wood cabinets. With the addition of more color, there is speculation that stainless steel appliances may be a thing of the past. There’s a prediction that white appliances with bronzed handles will be the new trend.
To put it simply, fast furniture is anything cheap that you’ll utilize for a few seasons and then get rid of when the trends change. With high importance on climate change and more sustainable living, people are opting for vintage and recycled pieces. Try giving new life to old products and adopting a more timeless look. Not only is this good for the planet, but it’ll be good for your finances too.
Similar to the end of the all-white kitchen era, it’s now time to kiss a neutral filled home goodbye. To clarify, we’re not talking all neutrals, specifically white and gray. Designers suggest you adopt camel and caramel hues as your new neutral. This will create warmer and cozier living spaces.
Step inside any home decorating store and you’re sure to find a bunch of motivational word art. While it is nice to have something inspiring on your walls, it’s time to get rid of those generic quotes. Instead, find or create art that means something special to you.
While it’s fun to take note of the coming changes, it’s important to remember that your home is personal to you. If you still love millennial pink, no one is forcing you to part ways with it. What it really comes down to is finding what feels homey and perfect to you. Decorate in a way that brings you joy and sure your sure to have a wonderful new decade.
