Natural, Neutral & Cottagecore

Whether you embrace the charm of the English countryside, Provence, or the organic beauty of California casual, this aesthetic surely appeals to romantics.

Laid back natural Cali luxe – Jenni Kayne…hello lovely organic indeed.

The beautiful thing about layering on natural materials in a space is how it adds authenticity, livability, simplicity, and yummy texture.

Reagan Years Style

Did you enjoy the 1980s as much as I did?

@sideshowinteriors…in case you love a blast of a “cocaine decorating era.”

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.

@jenniferthenc_realtor…hello earthy palette indeed.

While not all of those retro trends seem to be trending for interiors now, the 80’s are definitely having their day!

Dramatic & Bold Walls

If you browse the interwebs, it does appear that moody deep blues and greens are gaining momentum in designland.

@lola.decor…in case you love a statement wall alive with greenery bliss.

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.

deVOL – Design: @clarenceandgraves…hello lovely indeed.

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.

deVOL’s NY Showroom…hello character-rich cozy chic indeed!

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?

Shop this Look: Harrods…bold dramatic colors and prints lift and energize moods too.

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.

@shop.vanillabean…in case you are drawn to wabi sabi, natural light and a subdued palette.

Grandmillennial Style

If social media is any indication, more and more 20- and 30-somethings are hopping on the “granny-chic” bandwagon. Perhaps unknowingly.

    Cottagecore all the way!! I, too, had a ton of fun in the 80’s, but I’m happy to leave 80’s decor in the past! 🙂

      Hahaha – just because we wore neon leggings with matching shades and scrunchies doesn’t mean our bedrooms need to be a reflection! Cottagecore is so comforting!
