Natural, Neutral & Cottagecore
The beautiful thing about layering on natural materials in a space is how it adds authenticity, livability, simplicity, and yummy texture.
I personally love the timelessness of a subdued color palette and plenty of organic accents.
Natural linen and cotton, wood left natural, and colors from nature feel comforting and harmonious with the outdoors.
Jenni Kayne’s book PACIFIC NATURAL will totally rock your sox if you’re feelin’ a neutral natural laid back luxe look – I own this book and adore it.
Reagan Years Style
Did you enjoy the 1980s as much as I did?
I recall an abundance of geometric patterns, floral wallpaper, chintz, preppy everything, pastels, deep teal, lacquered Art Deco pieces, waterbeds, shag carpet, mauve, bold sculptural furniture, and lots of mirrored surfaces.
While not all of those retro trends seem to be trending for interiors now, the 80’s are definitely having their day!
My own sons seem to gravitate toward a 1980s aesthetic…it feels brand new and engaging to them!
Dramatic & Bold Walls
If you browse the interwebs, it does appear that moody deep blues and greens are gaining momentum in designland.
After seeing our share of white modern farmhouse kitchens, we’re seeing many more homeowners choose bold color for some or all of their cabinetry.
If you’re into dark green, you’ll definitely want to peek at THIS too! Even ceilings can be dramatic and also full of character if you’re into cocoon chic.
I wonder how folks who spend most of their time at home (for work and as a result of shutdowns) are enjoying those bold colors?
Do you suppose those dramatic spaces continue to keep their inhabitants energized and joyful?
Quiet Wood Tones & Modern Minimal
Plenty of folks continue to enjoy interior design with Scandinavian influences and modern rustic chic style.
Since this look relies on a more laid back (yet refined) vibe, woods with light tones and left natural play nice with the mix.
Juxtaposition and the rough with the delicate often yield pleasing compositions.
Let’s face it. Japandi (Japanese + Scandinavian) can be awfully soulful!
If social media is any indication, more and more 20- and 30-somethings are hopping on the “granny-chic” bandwagon. Perhaps unknowingly.
Think blue and white porcelain, comfy vintage sofas, a mix of prints and patterns, classic prep style, Grandma’s antiques, busy wallpaper, and even ruffles.
Happy colors that uplift the spirit and feel traditional yet fresh are popping up everywhere.
Tassels and trim, printed textiles, fussy details and a departure from stark minimalism are having a moment.
Even sparkly chandeliers and some remnants of shabby chic style (like slipcovered dining chairs) feel just right with Grandmillennial comforts of home.
What I appreciate about the trend is how it lends itself to creatively layered spaces full of unique personality.
Peace to you right where you are.
