As the New Year is approaching, new trends will not be far behind. This year brought forth many new trends in architecture and interior design. People have come up with several ways to adapt their spaces with creative ideas. These 8 ideas range from bold to minimalist designs. Not all these designs will carry on into the New Year, but here are some of the popular trends that we have seen this year

Interior Design

  1. Grandmillenial

This is perhaps one of the most interesting and unique trends that has been seen this year. This style combines more traditional and vintage décor with a modern flair. People have reimagined how to incorporate pieces that would be found in “a grandparent’s home” by using floral wallpapers, antique furniture, and other vintage pieces to create a nostalgic feel in a modern space.  

2. Wallpaper/Accent Walls

This has been a popular trend for people wanting to transform their spaces with minimal effort and commitment required. Wallpaper went out of style for a few years, but it has made a comeback. Accent walls and wallpaper are an impactful way to visually enhance a space.  

3. Sage Green

This has been one of the most popular colors seen this year. It has been popular in fashion as well as interior design and architecture. It adds a pop of color to a space without it being too much and it has become one of the new go–to neutral colors. This shade of green also reminds people of nature, creating a relaxing feel. This color has been featured in tile work, cabinetry, wall paint, as well as furniture.  

4. Industrial Style

This style has become more and more popular over the years. This style is unique yet traditional, while remaining sophisticated. It is one of the more sustainable styles as industrial style furniture is meant to last for a long time.

Architecture

5. Biophilic Design and Architecture

This style incorporates nature into spaces by including plants and greenery in several different ways. The idea of bringing the outside in makes people feel at ease in a space. It can be as simple as including plants on tables throughout the space or it can go further and include hanging greenery from ceilings.  

6. Minimalism

This style has become more and more popular over the years. This style is unique yet traditional, while remaining sophisticated. It is one of the more sustainable styles as industrial style furniture is meant to last for a long time.  

7. Open Spaces

This trend has been popular in both commercial and residential projects. People want more space in both their workplaces and their homes. Open space and more natural light creates a better flow throughout these spaces.

8. Outdoor Social Spaces

This trend has become increasingly popular throughout the course of the pandemic. Because it was unsafe to gather inside, people began to get more creative with how they could interact with people outside. As a result of both people being stuck at home as well as an increased desire to be outside, people saw spaces in their homes that they wanted changed, and backyard renovations spiked during the pandemic.  Because restaurants were unable to host customers in indoor dining rooms, restaurants started to offer more outdoor seating during the pandemic and it still remains to be a popular trend.
