Top Interior Design Trends

You’ve probably been spending a lot more time in your homes in Lakeville MN these days, which may have you dreaming of redecorating. Whether you’re thinking along the lines of some new accessories to add freshness to your decor or a complete redo of a room, there are certain top trends this year that you can incorporate into your home to give it a stylish update.

Often, just a fresh paint job will do wonders for a room. Even if you don’t want to do a major change, you can still use a new color that works with your existing color palette to give any space a new lease on life. For example, grays have been popular for a while and still remain popular neutrals. If your bedroom or living room has gray in the sofa, rugs, or bedding, there are a variety of on-trend colors to add to the walls. A soft, barely-there pink — think matte blush tones — is surprisingly charming for either a bedroom or a living room. Keep the gray furnishings and add in some coral or salmon throw pillows or lightweight linen bedspreads for an inviting touch of warmth that is classic rather than candy.

If pink isn’t to your taste, blue remains hugely popular, in a variety of tones. From darker grayish blues to sea blues that lean toward green, you can create a calming atmosphere, regardless of the color you choose. While navy blue has been THE color of 2020, there have been a variety of shades and tints to ensure that you can find the right blue for you. Plus, blue is such a classic color that it is bound to age well. From kitchen cabinets to sofas to side tables and more, blue is such an easy color to work into your home’s decor. From bold blue bedroom walls to a collection of blue vases, bowls, and barstools in the kitchen, there are plenty of ways to make this color work for you.

Of course, there’s no reason why you have to focus on color, especially if you are happy with your basic colors. Texture has become increasingly important in home decor, with the bonus of being able to mix and match textures to create interesting focal points that don’t overwhelm a room. Layering textures is the key. Throw pillows and blankets with different textures are always easy, but you can also use natural fiber baskets, bowls, and more for attractive storage or simple decoration. While decorative vignettes aren’t as popular as they used to be, there’s still something to be said for a thoughtful arrangement of small, simple knick knacks in smooth, shiny, and natural textures, artfully combined together. For example a color-tinged glass vase with dried flowers paired with a matte bowl and a shimmery votive candle holder can be a stylish coffee or side-table arrangement.

When it comes to kitchens, stark white is on its way out. As already mentioned, shades of subtle classic blue are showing up on kitchen cabinets. If you’re not ready for that much color, try just doing the bottom cabinets in a darker color — be it blue or just a darker natural wood — and keep the upper cabinets lighter with a creamy color. However, if you prefer a more minimalist look to your kitchen, you could go all out and create a concealed kitchen where doors slide to reveal counters, kitchen island tops slide to reveal sinks and workspaces, while also creating a space to sit, and walls of flush cabinet doors open to reveal a plethora of storage. If you like open-plan living, but don’t always like having the kitchen open to the rest of the living area, this could be a bold and stylish move.

Finally, when it comes down to it, focus on the room(s) that you spend the most time in each day. Rather than make them super stylish but not so comfortable, the key these days is to create a space that is both stylish and welcoming. If you enjoy cocktails, why not create your own personal bar, using a vintage or retro bar cart and creating a corner of your kitchen or family room that feels like your own favorite bar, whether it’s neon signs or vintage prints and a collection of unique cocktail glasses.
