Is OLD back IN?

The truth is, home design trends are constantly changing. What’s more, old trends are often resurfacing. In other words, all trends end up coming back in style after a little while, often having evolved in some sense. For example, 50 years ago, wallpaper was very in, fast forward to 2021 and wallpaper is back on trend. However, it isn’t the vintage inspired prints of the 60’s and 70’s but more commonly now, simple patterns or something a little more bold used simply as a feature wall. 

If you are planning a major house renovations project and looking for the ultimate home design Brisbane based company, look no further than Urban Scene Construction. We would love to chat with you about your goals and how we could help you to reach them.

To help you with your home design, our team have come up with a list of interior design trends. 

  1. Broken-plan Living

The major come-back in the next decade is definitely zoning; whereby open-plan living spaces will be replaced with broken-plan living. However, this trend will now try to keep the spaciousness of the open-plan design by using screens, furniture, bookshelves, wall cut-outs, glass, or plants to create separate zones.

  1. Grandmillennial Style

The grandmillennial, or the granny chic, is rising in popularity. It is a modern revival of the kind of home design elements you could find at your grandparents’ home, evoking nostalgia and tradition. In 2021, antiques, wicker furniture, gingham and floral prints, wallpapers, fringing, and delicate china are back on the catwalk.

  1. Gold Fixtures

When it comes to kitchen and bathroom home design elements, gold fixtures are all the rage right now. From taps, sinks, lighting fixtures, to big chunky mirrors, gold is certainly here to make a style statement. Hence, if you are planning a major house renovations project that covers these spaces, consider including gold. We believe it might just be here to stay. 

  1. Cottagecore

This home design trend is homely, comforting, and nostalgic – everything we wish for this year. It simply appeals to everyone who loves comfort, vintage style, and character details. The cottagecore style is characterized by exposed beams, paneled walls, lots of texture, gilded cutlery, and gold fixtures. 

  1. Rustic Ceramics

Fed up with the all-white or all-one-colour kitchen or bathroom tiles? Luckily, rustic ceramics edge out smooth uniform tiling. Colourful, interesting, and handcrafted designs are definitely coming to stay. You can use them for both entire walls or accent only one, or even a small part of it.

The Bottom Line

As you can see, we are yet to experience the rebirth of some of our favourite vintage trends. Ready to chat to the professionals about your style choices? Our team at Urban Scene Construction look forward to hearing from you… so what are you waiting for? Contact us today to chat about your new home design! Let’s create something amazing!
