Every fashionista knows that they have to keep up with all the latest trends. And it’s not only the fashion trends that they should know, but also the ones about interior design. This becomes even more important if you are supposed to redecorate your house or apartment or if you have recently purchased your new home and you don’t know how you want to decorate it. There are so many different styles that you can go with, for each and every room in your house, but this article will primarily focus on the living room. The living room is the room that most of the people will see, and the place where you will be spending most of your time, so it’s definitely the room that should be a priority. Take a look at some of the most popular living room trends right now.
Perhaps the most popular living room trend at the moment is going completely monochromatic with a color that pops. This is best achieved if the colors of your house are in the greyscale (the best option would be light grey as it will also keep your living room quite light and airy), while the walls should remain white. In order to make this look a bit more interesting, you should choose a color (or several colors that are complementary), and make it pop in the details. Choose cushions in that specific color, art that you will place on the wall, and the accessories such as lamps, candles or different vases. You can also do this with the carpet under your living room coffee table. Statement carpets are also a thing right now. You can either opt for colorful, monochromatic ones, or the retro carpets that are slowly making their way back.
Another trend that’s huge right now is making your living room very compact. This is very popular due to the fact that average homes are shrinking in size, not only in Australia, but the rest of the world as well, thus it’s very important to save space. There are so many different companies, such as IKEA, that offer great furniture solutions for compact living rooms, but there’s always the question of what to do with different cupboards and tables that you might need. One of the best ideas would be to opt for high-quality TV installation in Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney, or any other city for that matter. It’s a great option that will save plenty of space that you can use for something else.
Minimalism vs maximalism
Speaking of living room trends, there are two different styles, or approaches, which you need to have in mind. The first one is the minimalistic approach that channels the Nordic way of living. Creating minimalistic living rooms has been a thing for quite some time now, but the good thing is that they will never get out of style as they are very simple yet extremely elegant. However, there’s also the option of maximalism, which is only to gain more popularity in the future. This is a double-edged sword as nobody knows how long maximalism will be a thing and if we’re going to like that look in the next decade. If you want to opt for maximalism, though, and channel some Italian vibes, make sure that you get high-quality furniture and actually invest in your living room. Maximalism cannot look cheap.
A living room without plants is hardly a comfortable living room at all. Not only is the green color soothing for the eyes, making that specific living room much more enjoyable, but it always feels good when you’re in charge of some greenery. There is a plethora of different low-maintenance plants that you can go with, especially if you don’t have a green thumb. One very popular house plant is Monstera, which is extremely photogenic and looks amazing anywhere you put it. Greenery can completely transform your living space and make it much more interesting and prettier.
Even though it might be daunting and nerve-wracking, remodeling your living room can be extremely fun. Yes, you might have to invest a bit more money into creating the perfect living room, but everything will pay off in the end. Spending time in a room that makes you feel happy and tranquil is definitely priceless.
