New trends in interior design at Torhaven
It seems that Hamptons style, mid-century modernism and industrial chic have dominated interior design in our homes in recent times. While these styles won’t necessarily go out of fashion, there are some new trends worth considering when you’re furnishing your new home.
Bring back the 1970s
According to some designers, curved furniture reminiscent of the 1970s era is hot right now. We’re seeing a move away from boxy shapes and defined lines to smooth and curvy designs in dining, living and bedroom furniture. Think geometric wallpaper and fabrics with a dash of colour in shades of deep rose, ochre, and forest green.
Back are swivel chairs, round buttoned cushions, circular mirrors and curvaceous lamps. The style is also being subtly reflected in architecture with a feature arched alcove or round window. But we’re not necessarily going retro here – the look is more about the glamour and quirk of the 1970s brought into a modern home.
Golden age glamour
The glamour theme continues in this design trend, which takes its inspiration from Hollywood’s 1920-30s art deco period.
Rich and luxurious interiors are achieved with heavy drapes and thick velvet cushions in jewelled tones of emerald and sapphire, adorning sofas in wide black and white stripes.
Rugs with formal borders and animal prints are in. Achieve ambience with tropical foliage, and accent furniture in mixed metals and glass.
The look is complete with art deco inspired chandeliers and lamps, and your very own cocktail cabinet in polished timber.
Boho style hails from the central-eastern European Ancient Bohemia, where “bohemian” style was typified by artistic people who lived unconventional lives.
Today this melting pot of style features colours, fabrics, and textures in a casual yet sumptuous way. Think gypsy wagons, tassels, Moroccan lanterns, tribal rugs and lace. Pops of colour in bright pinks, turquoise and purple bring life to den-style rooms with timber and leather furniture.
Boho style allows you to bring your own personality into a room, with your eclectic collection of books, vintage objects, art and travel trinkets, to create a style that reflects you.
When creating interior spaces, remember that design should best represent who you are, using the latest interior design trends to create a palette for your style to shine.
Trends are an opportunity for you to learn what’s new and create something individual, so you can live with what you love. Be bold, be different, but most of all, be you!
