Home Decor Trends Making a Comeback

July 12, 2020

Don’t worry, Avocado Green and Harvest Gold appliances aren’t making a comeback, but you may be surprised by some of the home decor trends that are experiencing a revival. Fortunately, like many design trends, these vintage favorites have received a contemporary makeover to help them fit more comfortably in your Firestone CO new homes.

You’re likely to start seeing more wicker, rattan, and cane furniture popping up in living rooms. These natural materials have a long history in interior design and aren’t limited to the 1980s and pastel sunrooms. While it certainly works well on porches, it also blends well with clean, modern lines inside your home. A light, minimalist room that focuses on natural woods and earthy linens transforms a Miami vice into a stylish Scandinavian setting. Mix it with matte dark colors, as well, for an updated look.

While many natural-material furnishings are taking on more modern lines, the peacock chair is coming back in all of its stylish glory. From simple weaving patterns to more intricate swirls, these almost throne-like, lightweight chairs are showing up all over the place. You don’t have to go full bohemian to include one in your decor; they work great in a more neutral setting with a mix of textures, ranging from clear acrylics to fluffy pillows.

One design trend that has been working its way back in over the past few years has been floral wallpaper. The difference this time is the use of bold, darker base colors and larger flowers that aren’t always in such an obvious repeating pattern. Rather than do a whole room in this stand-out style, use a bold paper for a statement wall.

Alternatively, use it in a small half bathroom where you can get away with bold, fun, playful prints. In fact, when it comes to half bathrooms, just about any pattern goes. You don’t have to limit yourself to flowers. Go for tiger-face prints, quirky dog prints, or whatever strikes your fancy. Even in larger bathrooms, use the wallpaper for part of the wall and tone it down with white or neutral tile in the rest of the space.

While gallery walls of artwork have been popular for a while now, with a mix of large and small items filling a wall, the trend is shifting to one or two large statement pieces. While it can certainly be a painting, it doesn’t have to be. As with so much of contemporary decor, there’s a freedom to play around with the basic ideas. Instead of a painting, hang a large tapestry or piece of framed fabric. Another option is to hire someone to paint a mural or paint your own if you’re feeling creative. Of course, there are still a number of vinyl appliques for sale, which could let you create your own large-scale work of art. Have fun and think big!

Ultimately, the Firestone CO new homes should reflect the personal taste and style of their owners. No matter what the trends are, choose what you like. The best thing is that you can take elements of the latest trends and incorporate them in a big or small way, based on your tastes and your budget. Think about what’s on trend and start thinking about how you want to decorate your new home. You may find yourself suddenly thinking a pair of matching peacock chairs would look great at the ends of your dining table.
