Question: What design trends are you seeing this year?
Answer: Over the past few years, home design has turned from neutralized white/grey trends that have been popular for most of the last decade, especially in new construction, to include warmer colors and more natural looks, though these trends have yet to show up in most new construction projects I’ve seen (single-family and condo).
Each year, every design magazine, paint company and furniture store comes out with their annual design trends. I collected some of the most common trends I found across all of them, as well as those that I’m seeing show up more in homes in the D.C. metro, and compiled them into some fun graphics.
The impact of COVID shows up in a big way in many trends, including trying to bring the outside in (plants/indoor gardens and wood-grain kitchens) and getting more out of existing spaces (closet-offices and outdoor kitchens). Let me know what you think and if you’ve introduced any of these colors, designs or improvements to your home recently!
