If you are looking for inspiration to redecorate one or more rooms in your home, you may find some solutions that you love among this summer’s top trends. For 2019, the main idea behind every major trend is sustainability. Many people today are mostly concerned about sourcing and manufacturing processes. As environmental responsibility and conscientiousness continue to grow in importance, you can expect to see more home interior trends sway in this direction. These are some current trends.
1. Recycled Kitchen Decor
From wallpaper to utensil canisters, there are plenty of items that are made from recycled materials. Recently, one major home furnishing company announced that it released more sustainable kitchen decorations. Fibers, textiles, plastics, foam and all other sorts of materials that normally wind up in landfills are being used to make creative kitchen decorations. Along with the idea of recycled decor, darker colors are becoming more popular. Many recycled products are dark brown, slate gray or black. Also, some people are choosing blinds or recycled shutters instead of curtains.
2. Ceramic Pieces
Ceramic pots have been associated with nature and plants for decades. They are becoming more popular as decorative pieces for end tables, dining tables, and shelves. You can even paint them yourself to coordinate with the theme of the room that you put them in. They are also popular in kitchens now. You can find pitchers, trays and other decorative pieces that will look attractive with gray finishes and warmer wood hues.
3. Handmade Tiles
Tiles can also be made from recycled or sustainable materials. Many of the terrazzo and faux wood floors that were popular in the past are being replaced with more unique tiles. There are no rules about designs. You can mix and match coordinating styles or choose a simple color. However, light wood and reclaimed wood are still popular as natural flooring options.
4. Textured Textiles
If you like throw pillows and blankets, consider adding new ones with textured patterns. To preserve the concepts of sustainability and nature, muted and brown colors are popular. There are also entire textured bedding sets with coordinating or matching pieces. Some sets come with curtains or valances as well. If you are concerned about chemicals and ethical supply procurement, there are also several manufacturers that offer ethical cotton products.
5. Mustard Color
Channeling the 1970s, entire living rooms with mustard accents are coming back. However, they incorporate modern flare. For example, you can find mustard area rugs with a black floral print to pair with a black sofa. You may also paint an accent wall a mustard color and choose a mustard lamp. While the idea is to make mustard the focal color, not everything in the room should be one color.
6. Pendant Lights
A blast from the mid-century past that you might see this summer is the pendant light. Modern versions do not hang on chains with unsightly cords laced through them. They have sleek and clean looks. Earth tones, gray, black, white, mustard, and navy blue are the trendiest color choices.
7. Roman Shades
Legends say that Roman shades were originally crafted for the Colosseum in Rome. It is easy to see why people continued to use them in other parts of the world for centuries. With their pull cord, they are easy to operate. Also, they are attractive. You can find modern versions of these shades from several ethical manufacturers today. Some are designed to be recyclable and sustainable. For this summer, some of the top Roman shade colors are light gray shades, two-tone shades, and browns that have popular patterns. These versatile window treatments make a great addition to any room.
8. Floral Wallpaper
If you were sad to see wallpaper lose its popularity in the 1990s, you will be relieved to know that it is coming back. Western patterns and mid-wall borders are still out of style. Black, white, gray and muted colors with floral patterns are in style. As previously mentioned, some manufacturers make wallpapers from recycled materials. Most products are much easier to apply today, and some companies make simple peel-and-stick products. Also, floral wall stickers are popular.
9. Jade Paint
The deep jade color is a popular choice for entire rooms. If you opt for floral wallpaper, this color also makes a nice choice for an accent wall. Deep green is a color that reflects the global shift toward sustainability and nature. However, if you prefer a simpler and brighter look, classic white is still a popular choice that works well.
Biophilia is the tendency that humans have to connect with nature. The decorating idea that ties into it span superficial decor and remodeling projects. If biophilia interests you in relation to interior decorating, plan your remodeling and redecorating projects to include more wood, stone, plants and natural substances.
In addition to promoting sustainability, natural products and plants contribute to reduced stress. For this reason, choosing the right decor can be a health benefit in today’s fast-paced society.
