One of the most relevant interior trends is the creation of an atmosphere of a cozy harbor where you feel protected. Its basis is upholstered furniture and cabinets with a history, warm blankets, handmade gizmos, decorative pillows with embroidered pillowcases and other cute things.
The main thing is not to overdo it: cozy does not mean cramped. This is an inner feeling of security and well-being.
The highlight of this interior is exclusive handmade items. Repaint and decorate the old table, wooden chair, chest of drawers. You don't have to be an artist to do this — use stencils. Tie a plaid or warm cases for vases and mugs, decorate wooden photo frames.
Fantasize and create. No designer can do it better than you.
Another trend that has been relevant for many years now is minimalism combined with functionality. This option is great for small apartments and rooms. Scandinavians have been successfully demonstrating a vivid example of concise solutions for a long time. That's why this style is called Scandinavian.
It is very simple to understand exactly what needs to be changed in the interior to match this style. You should ruthlessly get rid of everything that does not carry any payload. A closet in which books that have not been read for years are stored, a bedside table "for beauty", an armchair on which no one has sat for a long time — you can do without all this.
Open shelves, small coffee tables, shelving, light blinds instead of heavy curtains, simple lines, the absence of dark and gloomy tones, a minimum of decor and the presence of logic are the attributes of such an interior.
Take as a basis (the color of the walls and furniture) white, beige or any other pastel shade. Add a bright element — it can be an armchair, a table, a carpet, a painting, a stool, a vase. This contrast will make any interior stylish.
Eco-friendliness is still in fashion. This does not mean that you necessarily need to cover the floors with expensive cork flooring or switch completely to rattan furniture (although this is not excluded if you have the means). Natural elements refresh the interior literally.
It is easy to arrange a mini garden in the kitchen and grow lettuce and spices. Traditional potted indoor plants can be replaced with a fashionable and beautiful phytosten.
The theme of ecology can also be played in the decor: photos of beautiful flowers and picturesque natural views, pillows and blankets with images of animals, bamboo dishes, plant ornaments, shelves in the form of trees — the imagination is not limited here.
Choose shades of green that are associated with everything related to ecology. Cork panels or bamboo wallpaper are a good accent for walls.
Those who like variety can combine several styles in the interior. But eclecticism allows for a mixture of no more than three directions, otherwise you can slide into tastelessness. High-tech elements are well combined with eco-style, shabby chic style, which uses artificially aged furniture, retro and Scandinavian rigor.
Do not be afraid to experiment, but do not forget that the interior should not be pretentious. Simplicity is in fashion now.Another trend is multifactorial. Metal of various colors can be safely combined with wood, stone, cork. The more diverse the material, the better.
Select interior items according to some single feature: color, texture, size, style, shape. If the furniture in your house has sharp corners, choose the same decor: a rectangular mirror, a vase, a carpet. There should always be a common denominator.
You can't go wrong if you choose pastel shades of pink, soft coral, emerald green, cream tones, as well as rich blue. They can be combined to create the most incredible combinations.
With the help of color, you can correct the shortcomings of the room. Light tones visually enlarge the space, cold ones make a sunny room less hot.
For the decoration of a small apartment, it is recommended to use several colors, and one of them may be contrasting.
