I hope you’ve all had a wonderful start of 2011! If not, It can only get better :)
You will see some changes in Trendey this new year and one of those is I’ll post less often. Sad but true, need to finish some work. And that’s why this post is looooong! Can’t stop you know. Last year Trendey saw a huge rise in visitors and it has been great researching the field of interior decorating giving you the trendiest of trends right on spot. The two people me and Henen have inspired most the year passed is……tada, Mia and Henen! Nevertheless, we are sincerely thankful and very happy for all the comments, all lovely words, all advices and ideas you, trendey.com-readers, has given us along the way. You rock.
Moving on, we of course have the retro styles. The 50s came very strong in 2010, but we have a hot 70s on and also a 80s vibe surely even 90s waiting around the corner. Retro is the word, design pieces are key. Orange and caramel are two smokin’hot colours.
And let’s not forget the 40s and the decades behind. Personal favourite. Within this lies what I refer to as Faded Glamour, the granny-esque vibe and the Granny and Grandpa-style. Also a retro style, but one with war times, family, nostalgia and memories written all over it. It’s feminine, rough romance and/or Grandpa-ish.:)
Lastly, as we’re speaking of more lasting trends, not mayflies (there are a lot of those, look out for recent themes in the Decor Trends & Tricks section), we have on the one hand the recent ethnic-eclectic very globetrotter-inspired theme, and on the other – the trendy countryside: countryish and simple spiced with something. For example: art.
