5 Interior Décor Trends That are Making a Comeback
Bell-bottom jeans, strong female leaders, even the great depression and the great recession… History is always repeating itself. Interestingly enough, so does interior design trends.
The repeat isn’t always glaringly obvious. Old ideas are often reshaped or iconic interior design trends are combined to create a new spin on things. Some items even come back as retro or vintage.
Old styles can easily be recreated or reimagined by consumers – but it takes a certain je ne sais quoi to recognise which trends should be discarded and which ones should be incorporated.
We’ve used our expertise as interior specialists to put together a list of five interior décor styles we’re happy to welcome back in our homes.
Wild with Wallpaper
Foiled or flocked, wallpaper of the 70’s took on surprising textures giving the expression “I’m really feeling these walls” new meaning. And it’s not just the 70’s that’s making an impact…
In 2019, we’re welcoming fun, colourful wallpaper vogue throughout the ages in our décor. From bold floral patterns and murals to interesting geometric shapes and textures, this is one of the coolest interior design trends for 2019. However, wallpaper fashion has evolved, so click here to see how you can incorporate it into your home décor.
The Sheen of Velveteen
If you had asked 10 years ago, many home fashionistas would have told you that velvet is seen as old fashioned and stuffy. These days, however, it’s a luxurious and comforting fabrication used to add warmth and sophistication to homes across the globe.
Even though it was introduced in 809 A.D. as the choice material of the rich and famous, the velvet trend has been making a big comeback over the last few years. If you’re still hesitant to jump on the velvet bandwagon, here are 10 very good reasons you should be investing in one of the most versatile textures for your homes.
Cork is Cool
Sustainability and practicality are popping up in home décor all over the place, therefore it’s safe to say: cork is making a comeback! This 1970s staple has recently come back on the design world’s radar in a big way. Cork walls are not only a visually compelling choice, but they’re amazing when it comes to blocking out sound and posting to-dos on the go. Combine it with the ever-growing botanicals trend, and you’ll have mastered the art of greener living.
Remember those days when you rolled around on a big, shaggy rug in front of your TV? Shaggy rugs weren’t only loved by children of all ages, it was even showed off in the houses of TV’s favourite families like the Brady Bunch. Shags came in a whole new variety of colours, so people got creative with them, leading to shags in quintessential 70’s greens and oranges.
This year, these fun carpets are trending once again. The soft textures and beautiful designs combine luxury and comfort in one easy carpet. You can add them to a single area in the room and transform it into a trendy corner. Another way to go is to buy a large one for the whole floor.
With many old design trends coming back in style this 2019 our designers are expecting to see many nods to the 70’s. Especially the warm décor palettes that were used during this era.
These naturals colours were far from neutral whites and creams we’re used to; they came from the more colourful elements of nature. Everything from paint colour and carpets to stoves and refrigerators could be found in Avocado Green, Harvest Gold and Burnt Orange. Pantone has confirmed this bright trend by proclaiming Living Coral as its colour of the year.
