Interior Decoration Trends - Minimalism


Minimalism will endure, and individuals will continue to focus on the materials that make up the furniture and accessories in each space of their homes. Sustainability is inherently linked to minimalism, making it a trend that emphasizes the use of essential objects.


This concept is not a new trend in interior decoration. Initially popularized in the 1960s among architects of the time, it stood out in the organic and clean lines of properties. In the 1990s, it gained more visibility and quickly transcended into interior decoration.


Currently, this trend remains popular, making spaces timeless and eco-friendly, thanks to the use of sustainable materials. A simple space, dominated by only essential objects, becomes functional and practical, a valuable asset in the fast-paced rhythm of our days.


Minimalism is characterized by the use of simple elements, harnessing natural light, and the premise of creating clean and spacious environments. Typically, neutral tones form the base of the colour palette, but there are always decorative elements with bolder colours to provide some contrast.

Interior Design Trends – Japandi


Have you ever heard of the Japandi interior design style? If not, it's a fusion of two styles: one from Japan and the other from Scandinavia. This combination results in minimalist and highly organized spaces. The Scandinavian style is known for its functionality, while the Japanese approach brings a zen perspective. Together, they create environments with light tones, functional furniture, and a focus on wooden materials. The line and volume of the furniture tend to be well-balanced.

Interior Design Trends – Eclectic Style


Modern Eclecticism involves blending different styles and periods in home spaces. It harmonizes various cultural influences, although combining elements can be challenging and may take some time to achieve the desired result. The fusion of vintage furniture with contemporary design elements and the mix of neutral and bold colours are characteristic features of the modern eclectic style.


Natural Textures on the Rise in Interior Decoration in 2024


In 2024, interior decoration stands out with natural elements. Luxurious fabrics such as linen and wool, coupled with the grounding presence of stones, create a soothing atmosphere amidst the hustle and bustle of modern life. Rattan ornaments will take centre stage, appearing in lamps, wall decorations, chairs, and other items. For industrial style enthusiasts, cement remains a trend, often combined with elements of natural materials like rope, stone, or clay.
