If you’d like to update your home with some of these megatrends, here are some great tips and ideas. And the bonus? These are not only already available in stores but they’re sure to be fashionable for some time to come.
Classic geometric shapes are a long-standing favorite for adding touches of sleek sophistication to any room. But blown up to a larger scale, those same shapes suddenly create major drama and grandeur in your space.
The trick to using oversized geometrics well is to choose just one large-scale pattern per room to make an elegant, unexpected statement. Geometric wall-coverings or artwork, patterned upholstery, or carpet with interlocking designs are a few favorites.
This term made its way into our design vocabulary during the 1800s when Europeans went wild for Chinese-inspired design. A megatrend today, the latest evolution of chinoiserie includes fanciful imagery, lacquered surfaces (often very colorful), and iconic shapes.
If you’re thinking about bringing a little of the Far East into your home, try a glazed lacquer tray or a Greek key throw. Both will merge beautifully with your current décor to create a whole new look.
Metallics instantly bring glamour and a bit of shine to a room. Casual and modern or elaborate and ornate, metallics brighten and open up the darkest and tiniest of spaces.
To add a little sparkle, look for light fixtures and accessories that feel like vintage finds. Antiqued finishes and mercury glass accents are especially popular. And don’t forget that even small metallic touches make a big impact.
Finally, if you want to modernize your space, Lucite is a great choice and never goes out of style. Whether you choose a Lucite chair, lamp, vase, or tray, it’s surprising how a single item can transform a room.
Experiment with pairing your new Lucite piece with unexpected elements like wood and metal to create a stunning focal point. The potential combinations are endless.
Chinoiserie, Lucite, oversized geometrics, metallics … these megatrends provide a marvelous assortment of possibilities. Possibilities so stunning, in fact, that you don’t have to redecorate an entire room to update it. Just a few accents can bring these megatrends to life in your own home and create a fresh, stylish new look.
