Interior design styles to change dramatically as demand for the luxury product rises
The latest home decor trends may look a little different from what you might have seen in a decade ago.
But a trend in interior design that has been gaining momentum for years, says the interior design institute, shows that the trend will only continue to gain traction.
“Interior design has been evolving with the changing needs of people,” says Kate Kelly, the president of interior design for the interior designers association.
“There is a lot of demand for modern designs.”
The new trends include: 1.
A new trend of the “introverted” interior.
This means that the interior designer works with a range of different people to create a design that appeals to all levels of the house.
“If a designer is working with a family, they might have a client who wants a more intimate setting with a view to a more private room or a more family-orientated space,” says Kelly.
“A designer who works in a more commercial setting might want to look at a more modern home and a home that is more modern.”
A shift away from the “classic” style.
This is where the designer uses a very familiar piece of furniture or design to create something different.
This trend is known as “exotic” design and has seen a lot more interest in the past few years, according to Kelly.
It’s also seen a dramatic shift in the type of products people are buying.
A trend of “interior decor with a purpose”.
This is an eclectic look that is designed to complement the home’s design.
“The design can range from a simple interior with a single motif to a modern design with a mix of motifs,” says Rose-Marie O’Connor, the vice president of design at the interior decorating firm O’Neil Design.
A focus on “homey” elements.
“We see people who are just wanting a modern feel and not wanting a traditional home design,” says O’Brien.
“They want to have a very simple home with an open living room, a fireplace and a fireplace mantel.”
A look at how the interior will change.
As interior design evolves, it will also become more interesting and creative, said O’Connors.
This will allow designers to create more unique and creative designs.
“I think it’s really important that the people we work with are creative,” she says.
“People are becoming more creative and wanting to express themselves creatively and they are also becoming more conscious about the way they dress and their personal style.”
“People want to wear the same outfit all the time,” she adds.
“So it’s important for people to feel comfortable in the moment.”
An emphasis on the outdoors.
“As we go further and further into our travels, we’re becoming more aware of how we need to manage our energy and our environment,” said O-Connor.
“It’s important that we don’t just focus on one aspect of our lifestyle,” she said.
“Designing for people who want to be outdoors is a great way to do that.”
A more inclusive approach.
Kelly says she sees a lot change happening in the way people approach interior design.
This includes people who like the idea of being creative, but want to keep their home’s aesthetic and feel.
“You can have a more inclusive design when you do that,” she explains.
The trend of using more materials.
“For some people, that’s more of a trend, like the use of new materials like reclaimed lumber,” says McQuillan.
What’s interesting is that people who work in interior and commercial design are seeing an evolution in the use and how materials are used.”
More people wanting to do home decor.
This has been happening for some time, said Kelly.
A recent survey by the interior architecture firm Arup found that the number of people who wanted to do design was going up, with people from all walks of life wanting to be involved.
But there are also those who are less interested in the idea.
“Most people are looking for something that is a little bit more casual and they want to do something that isn’t really formal,” she explained.
“In some ways, this is a trend that we are seeing as we age, so it’s not like people are going through this transition anymore.”

The home design trend is expanding beyond the home.
Kelly said there are more people doing home decor than ever before, and it is growing by leaps and bounds.
“Many people will be designing a home on their own, with their own skills and with their creativity,” she added.
“More people are coming out to design, and people are also starting to ask for help from others who are more experienced in the industry.”
