It feels like we’ve been “nearing the end” of our renovation for months now. The project has only run over by a few weeks in fact and we’ve not been rushing it, as we’ve had our current house to sell and a lot of work on!
Because we are finishing the renovation ourselves (ie. painting, decorating, styling), we also wanted to make sure we didn’t make any rushed decisions that we’d end up wanting to change in a few month’s time.
So I’ve been looking to interior and home magazines, blogs and good old Pinterest, for home trends that I can take inspiration from. We both have an electic sense of style, but one thing we both agree on, is that we want to create a sense of space in our new home and not clutter it with random things that we don’t really need.
Storage will be key! We don’t really want anything on show that we don’t like looking at!
Well that’s the theory anyway. So a few home trends that I’m loving are…
Home Trends I’m loving
I feel we are being influenced from a number of home trends at the moment, including…
The clean lines, sleek shapes and white light of the scandi home trend is so appealing for our renovation. We want to maximise the natural light in the house and like that in scandi home style, everything has it’s place and is a centrepiece in its own right.
This home trend seems to be a firm fixture in modern interior design and I love it! I love it because it goes with any style or interior. It can give a “tough” edge to a more softly styled interior or it can add a real focal-point to a chic and minimalist design. I particularly love industrial lighting and we’ve ordered some bespoke factory lux lights for over our kitchen island (to be revealed soon!).
With the rose-gold trend taking the world by storm (what even was there before rose-gold??), it’s only natural that we’d be looking to this colour palette for our home designs too. Copper is the perfect material to get a hint of that rose-gold in a natural material. I don’t like to overdo it, but I think adding a hint of copper into a room design can really make it “ping”.
I definitely love to mix some harder interior design looks, with some softer textiles and patterns. So for the final home trend that I’m loving, I thought I’d look into fabrics and textiles that are really floating my boat.
