Good designers appreciate the fact that color decisions and home environment choices are not based on vague or fuzzy ideas. Understanding and identifying the directions of design development is key to capturing potential home decoration trends.
Following the global economic downturn, there was a general trend towards nostalgia. Design trends seem to be moving into two different directions: classic or contemporary.
Whereas designs are becoming more defined, colors seem to be moving in the opposite direction. We have observed that colors are becoming more indistinct and moderated, making designs appear softer and more intimate. Flashy “bling” colors are fading, while more gentle color tones are becoming more popular. Unique colors and delicate tones provide a sense of balance and harmony.
Here are some of the overall trends we see in Home Decoration for 2015:
1) Functional and practical industrial design are making a comeback
Industrial elements have been very popular in home decoration design over the past few years. These elements have been used to create a variety of home decoration products. At first, industrial elements were featured directly on products to emphasize strong, modernized feelings. However, this trend also has more practical and functional applications: a focus on bringing consumers a more convenient living experience. An emphasis on convenience and functionality can be integrated into all kinds of home environments.
2) Solid, geometric designs are trending
Geometric elements have always been widely used in home decoration design. The designs, after many years of development, have evolved from simple 2D elements into an abundance of 3D structures, resulting in numerous new designs. Innovative 3D structures and geometric patterns inspired by the likes of cells and molecules bring consumers incredible visual impact.
3) The merging of global cultures is influencing our home environment
Cultures of different regions are expanding into areas they have never reached before, resulting in several new and experimental variations. African style, neo-romanticism, oriental Zen, Persian style and many other niche cultural elements are mixing together to create astonishing new art forms and products in regards to home decoration design.
4) Innovative environment-friendly designs are mainstream
Environmentally friendly designs, including recycling and upcycling, are emerging. Traditional resources such as raw woods, linen cloth, burlap ropes, and checked fabrics with simple natural moods harken back to an original appreciation of beauty. Additionally, new designs featuring galvanized steel, copper and other metals with original colors are in style, bringing further creativity to environmentally friendly home decoration design.
