10 Popular Home Design Trends — Timely or Timeless?

It’s hard to know what’s going to stick and what’s going to go down in history. Interior design trends come and go and come again, to be sure.

In the ’50s, people ripped out Victorian details and claw-foot tubs in favor of vinyl and plastic and elements with the sleek, modern aesthetic of the atomic age. In the ’70s and ’80s, Danish modern pieces and other icons of the ’50s were eschewed as symbols of a stuffy, bygone era. Now they are sought-after treasures with giant price tags.

In the last decade, we’ve seen some new decorating trends emerge. Some will have staying power, and some will go down. We may see them in 20 years and think, “That is so 2012-2013.” But which is which? Spacio Designers have their predictions. What are yours?

Moroccan Poufs

We are a huge fan of Moroccan poufs, says Navin Kanodia of Spacio Furniture. They are great extra seating. They are great footrests. They are both exotic and modern, and they come in a rainbow of colors.

They’re modern looking, but with just the right amount of flourish. Not too sleek, not too busy.

And they go with any decor: modern, traditional & eclectic. But are they here to stay?

Woods Wallpaper

This beautiful and serene pattern hit its apex in about 2010, when it was absolutely everywhere.

Capture4

It’s simple, symmetrical and classic.

Midcentury Modern Wallpaper

All love wallpaper, and love the big, graphic patterns inspired by midcentury designs. But they’ve already done their comeback circle, and we are betting that in a few more years they are going to fall out of favor again.

Capture6

In 1990 no one would have put this in their home. Now everyone is. What about in 2025?

Capture7

Same goes for midcentury textured wallpaper. Trend.

Capture8

Midcentury Starburst Mirrors

A design trend from our youth that now seems horribly misguided. The 50’s generation still cannot imagine why anyone would want this in a home where as the youth of today find it to be the trend and the in thing.

Capture9

But many, many people do want starburst mirrors in their homes. You see them in all sorts of different styles. Does that make them a classic, or are they just enjoying one last moment of favor?

Capture10

Midcentury Everything

All the midcentury design icons have made a huge resurgence in the past decade: Eames, Saarinen, Nelson , Bertoia. You can’t turn around without hitting your shin on a Tulip Chair.

Capture11

 

Midcentury modern design has real beauty and a very recognizable aesthetic. It is grounded in the philosophy of its time, which sought a sleek simplicity and integration with the outdoors.

Capture12

The ideas and designs of that time will never fade away. But the trend of creating a period-piece room will. We will always have Danish modern and Nelson lights, but we don’t think there will be quite so many rooms that look like Mad Men sets in 20 years.

Capture13

Butterflies

Butterflies are the insect of choice for everything from little girls’ rooms to sophisticated dining rooms. In the early years it was birds; now it’s butterflies.

Capture14

Nature never goes out of style, and we’ve been stealing its designs since we first wrote on cave
walls. But will butterflies scream “2012” in five years?

Capture15

Old Globes

These are another staple of modern, eclectic design. Just try to score a cheap out-of-date globe at a garage sale. There is no such thing, such is the demand.

Capture16

Old globes do have an innate loveliness. They are bright and round and colorful. They represent exploration and mystery.

Capture17

But will the old globe’s current iniquitousness be its undoing? Ten years from now, will you be able to score one at a garage sale for next to nothing?

Capture18

This is another big one in eclectic modern design. It’s funny and winking and ironic — very much a product of the time.

Capture19

But animal heads fashioned out of cardboard, plaster and ceramic have a limited shelf life.

Capture20

‘For Like Ever’ Posters

Already dated. They were just too popular for their own good.

Capture21

It’s always possible that they will make a nostalgic comeback in 20 years when all the children of today recall them from their childhoods. But they will never be a classic.

Capture22

They are great for people who can’t or don’t want to commit to wallpaper. And they are certainly a lot less expensive than art. But does the wall decal mural have a future?

Capture23

 

We think wall decals might be here to stay for short-life rooms like nurseries, but their best days
are behind them for adult spaces.

This post is a reminder of that unoccupied space above your building that could be converted into a beautiful urban oasis.

If you are ready to embark on this dazzling adventure, the photos below should inspire you in deciding on the overall design of the new garden.

Once you structure your rooftop garden in your mind, clear up the path for implementation. Check with your builder or contractor to see if your roof can hold the pressure of the soil, containers and so on.  Take safety measures- install fences and miniature shelters in order to protect the plants from falling objects ( if you are surrounded by taller buildings for example). Start researching on the type of plants you can grow and talk to a specialist about maintenance. Installing sprinklers is a great idea, especially during summer. These being said, we wish you a fun time planning and developing the perfect roof garden- please let us know how it goes!
