Current home design and decor trends to consider


Can you believe it’s already autumn? We’ve kissed another summer goodbye and soon enough, we’ll be welcoming winter with open arms. If you’re in between seasonal decor and you’re looking for a way to bring one of the rooms in your home to life, you may consider a style option that’s currently trending.

From color options and contrasting patterns to bold and daring decor, there are plenty of current home and design decor trends to choose from. Here are a few of our favorites to consider:

Consider the Pantone Color of the Year
It’s not too late to get behind the color of the year, and 2021 came with two: Ultimate Gray and Illuminating.

“The Pantone Color of the Year reflects what is taking place in our global culture, expressing what people are looking for that color can hope to answer,” shared Laurie Pressman, vice president of the Pantone Color Institute. “As society continues to recognize color as a critical form of communication, and a way to symbolize thoughts and ideas, many designers and brands are embracing the language of color to engage and connect.”

These shades can work wonders as wall and accent colors, but can also make a major statement in accessories.

Be willing to play with color in accents.

Take a break from neutrals
Color has always been a powerful tool to use as you revive your living space. With winter well on its way, it’s important to keep your home from feeling stale and out of touch. Incorporating more warm colors into your living room can help guests feel more comfortable, and it can bring an element of depth to your space. Consider hues like peacock blue and burnt orange to add some character to your home.

Bring your rooms to life with houseplants
Houseplants have always been an endearing accessory, but they’re more popular than ever. The pandemic encouraged more people to take on greater responsibilities in the comfort of their homes, and for some, that led to adding more flowers, succulents and other plants to their design and decor scheme. But they don’t only make a gorgeous accent piece — they also come with many additional benefits, according to interior decorator Emilie Munroe:

“Indoor trees and plants are going to continue their ascent into home design mainstay,” she shared with Good Housekeeping magazine. “They freshen indoor air, bring the clarity and calm of nature indoors, act like a sculpture on a shelf or table top, and caring for them is grounding and life-affirming. Developing a collection of interior plants wins on all levels: Aesthetic, functional and mental.”

Houseplants can bring your dining room to life.

Multifunctional outdoor spaces
You often use your patio for lounging by yourself or entertaining friends, but have you ever considered the other ways to utilize this space? An outdoor workspace or kitchen is a hot consideration for the deck or patio that can give you a new perspective for creativity.
