With every year new trends surface and old ones are forgotten. In this day and age, it’s very easy to go overboard when there is a multitude of options available on the market. Unless you regularly keep up with design blogs, you won’t know what’s popular and what’s not till you take up décor project yourself. While you may pass by a plethora of houses, you don’t get to see how are they decorate on the inside. So in order to help you avoid any costly mistake, let’s take a look at some of the design trends professionals have let go of.
All white designs
It may be nice to look at but it’s safe to say that this trend has hit its end. People started getting bored of this trend in the last year, especially on Instagram. That said, while a white clean space may work for some spaces, professionals have ditched this trend and are promoting rich colorful spaces for everyone.
It’s not just bright colors, you can expect dark colors and unique color accents.
Metal accented furniture
Gold and silver settees along with metallic accent furniture are out. You can still expect metallic design in tabletop décor, but it is out of furniture.
Whether you agree or not, metallic accents have seemed to have fallen out of the spotlight. One of the most commonly used ones is rose gold. So, if you have any in your house, consult any interior designer canberra and they’ll tell you that more natural material tones are in these days.
No more industrial inspired lighting
While you might not have gotten completely onboard with the industrial-inspired décor, it is very likely that you have taken on industrial inspired lightning. In the past couple of years, exposed lighting fixtures have shown up pretty much everywhere. Well, if you haven’t gotten on board, you can install more vintage fixtures that’ll help your interior design stand out more.
Tropical, more specifically Morrocan, designs appeal to a very specific niche which doesn’t look like is going to last anymore. You can look to replace such elements with solid colors, with bold hues and jewel tones. You can also look forward to Dutch House styles and color blocking in this year and ahead.
Millennial pink accessories
As we’ve seen the all-white décor go out of fashion, the millennial pink hue has shown some resilience. While it may be the perfect pink, when you need it, but when you are looking for something that goes well with everything, you should move on to mustard yellow.
It has very quickly rose through the ranks and become the hottest color. Unlike the pink, it goes well with a wide spectrum of colors, and different shades of this yellow can be used in different situations.
