Planning a makeover for your sweet home? Great! You may have screened the magazines and also have googled to figure out what’s next for the world of interiors? Well, we all love pouring over the latest home decor trends and buying choices.
But when it comes to interior design trends, like anything, there’s always the good, the bad, and the ugly to consider when trying your hand at keeping up with the times and boy, there’s a lot of unfathomable ones out there.
Here are a few of the trends that they say are falling by the wayside.
THE ACCENT WALL
The lone wall painted in one contrasting color is losing fans. it’s time to boldly enter the new decade by fearlessly experimenting with paint washing all the walls in a bold color is much more powerful and sophisticated.
Rose gold has seemed to reach its expiration date. But pinks are still hot, particularly bolder shades like magentas and corals. Mixed metals are still popular, but rose gold is not part of that trend, designers say.
Big and small retailers jumped on the farmhouse bandwagon and made this a mass-produced look that designers have grown tired of. These put-together trends lack unique personality.
The gray momentum is slowing, and warmer tones, such as light browns, beiges, and creamy whites are entering. In 2020, there will be a resurgence of warm earth-tone hues, including champagne, mushroom, ochre, amber, and jade.
OPEN FLOOR PLANS
For the past decade, the open floor plan has consistently gained widespread appeal, but now some homeowners are showing a desire to bring back some walls and add in privacy.
We thought this trend had left us in the 90’s but we’ve seen it come back on the scene for no good reason. It’s too crafty and DIY, is unnecessary, and frankly downright ugly. Go solid, go striped, go patterned, just don’t go faux, please!
As there’s no such thing in finding inspiration in greeting card-esque motivational signage, we say leave this bad interior design trend for children and seniors as it’s almost impossible to take any home’s decor seriously with cheesy signage art around.
As far as bad interior design trends go, we’ve seen enough terrible DIY upcycled furnishings to last a lifetime. They often tend to look too cheap, DIY, and incomplete.
Good God, enough with the mason jars! If you’re of a certain age please put the jar down and opt for a grown-up drinking vessel and utilize mason jars for storage purposes rather than decorative.
