Consumers long for things that set them apart, and that includes in their home too. Read on to learn why our WNWN Ambassadors predict one-of-a-kind interiors will remain among the top trends this year.
“Interiors have the power to teleport us to a different place and era beyond imagination. Design allows us to curate our own unique world and create an ambience that affects us on an emotional level. The future of interiors seems bright to me as people want to invest more in their own personal spaces and experiment with different aesthetics. The future of design is fun, colorful, and filled with life!”
–Sasha Bikoff of Sasha Bikoff Interior Design
“Home has become our “everything” space right now. I see more interiors with “authenticity” and “narrative” as well as spaces with color, pattern and playfulness as the next trend. Color and pattern are one way to tell a unique story, and also lift up our moods and spirits. I think designers and homeowners alike will seek ways to make their interiors more unique. Interiors will need to speak to the inhabitants and tell a ‘story’.”
–Philip Gorrivan of Philip Gorrivan Design
“The future of design is about combining art and wellness into a space in major ways; for instance, commissioning a local artist to paint a mural or textured wall inspired by the client. We all know that our environments impact us and everything in them seeps into our subconscious mind, thus affecting our mood and productivity. It’s now more important than ever that we carefully curate spaces that are inspirational and uplifting. Working with local artisans and architects to create bespoke artistic and sculptural furniture pieces that give clients a one-of-a-kind unique experience catered to their physical and spiritual needs is what’s new, now and forever.”
–Alicia Bailey of Bailey Li Interiors
“Say goodbye to the little black dress of living rooms! The home now is truly our sanctuary and as a result, design has become intensely personal. Whether it’s expressed through bold colors and patterns or lush textures like velvet, each space is now an opportunity to express your own style. The private spaces in the home take center stage more than ever. It’s not about designing to entertain; it’s about enjoying your time at home.”
–Marika Meyer of Marika Meyers Interiors
“The spaces I love most reflect the core of my client’s unique personality and lifestyle. I’m loving the trend of new homeowners breaking away from traditionally used color palettes, silhouettes and styles – and going for a more creative approach to outfitting their homes and apartments. In lieu of mimicking spaces they’ve found inspiration in, we’re trending towards installing high-personality pieces to create one-of-a-kind moments that you won’t find at the neighbor’s house!”
