Timeless Design Trends

filed in

Hello, design lovers! I’m excited to share my top five timeless design trends that will bring lasting beauty and sophistication to your home. My recent visit to High Point Market, the nation’s largest furnishings market, inspired these trends.

I explored beautiful showrooms and discovered the latest trends in the interior design industry. Let’s dive into these timeless design concepts that you can embrace wholeheartedly to elevate your spaces.

1. Curatorial Interiors

The first timeless trend is curatorial interiors. This concept involves designing interior spaces as highly curated vignettes, using only items you absolutely love.

Curatorial Interiors

Beyond furnishings and decorative accessories, consider the envelope of a spaceā€”the architectural details, paint color, flooring, and even ceiling treatments. By curating entire rooms, you create a cohesive and sophisticated ambiance.

2. Negative Space

Timeless trend number two is negative space. Intentionally leaving parts of a room or wall unadorned provides a visual pause, allowing the eye to rest and focus attention on adjacent furniture or artwork.

This thoughtful process enhances the perceived value of a room and adds an artistic touch when done correctly.

3. Textural Layers

The third trend, seen prominently at High Point Market, is the use of textural layers. Beyond fabrics and rugs, think about hard surface materials like lime wash on walls, panel molding, flooring, countertops, and even the wood in your furniture.

The combination of these materials creates a symphony of textural layers, bringing warmth and welcome to your home.

4. Unexpected Artwork

Trend number four encourages the embrace of unexpected artwork. Move beyond traditional framed pieces and consider tapestries, vintage oddities, or sculptural pieces that add character and interest to your walls.

Placing sculptural items on pedestals or tabletops further elevates your space with an artful touch.

5. Embrace Architecture

The fifth and final trend is to embrace architecture. Rather than stripping away original architectural details, celebrate them.

These details are the DNA of your home, adding unique character. These features should be cherished and preserved, whether they are archways, mantles, or original moldings.
