We are just moving into a new home decor season – the lovely fall of 2011 – so what suit better in this downtime of news than to (again) summarize some ongoing trendiness. Without claiming to be complete, of course. Now to start, the allover trend is of course UNDECORATE! Coined by DwellStudio’s Christiane Lemieux, the no-rules/non-decorating approach to interior design is gaining ground steadily. A close friend to, and sometimes inseparable from, the good ol’ (awesome!) eclectic style. Laid-back, funny and personal.
All the oddities. Of any kind. Busts, psychology heads or any other fairly quirky & odd object. The science trend also shows a lot of anatomy posters, bell jars, eye tests and well, you name it. And we’re into retro, retro, retro! Retro might be the strongest trend of the 2010’s, so far and I wouldn’t be surprised if totally (I mean we have yet to see the full swing of 80s and 90s.). Moving on, home decor smacks of creativity. It’s the #1 feature of the undecorator. Personal collections in a variety of ways, e.g. mood boards, are typical (and functional) interest-adders to a room.
Wallpapers are as popular as dark or mildly painted walls (or white walls, but I wouldn’t admit that, you know how I feel about white :p) Preferably Granny’s old wallpapers. And we’ve seen loads and loads of world maps and globes:
Riding us into the globetrotter-trend. With kilim (or kelim), ikat and other ethnic inspired fabrics and patterns. And to close for today, all the wild & creative frame groupings. To display art, pant hangers are useful or well, just ordinary clothes hangers can also do.
