Looking to be on point with your home décor this year? Then consider the insights from the second annual Interior Designer Trends Survey from 1stdibs, a global destination for designers and collectors.
The survey, which garnered the opinions of hundreds of leading designers from around the world, reflects which style trends are on deck for the year ahead...and which ones are on their way out.
Artisanal look: About half (49 percent) indicate that they will source artisanal and one-of-a-kind pieces, up from 42 percent from last year.
Customized pieces: 58 percent say they're customizing their pieces in some way, up 44 percent from last year.
Modern vibes: As in last year's survey, modern styles—-including Scandinavian modern, mid-century modern, Art Deco and American modern—will continue to play a big role in interior design.
Amped-up color: Homeowners are continuing to gravitate toward color, including warmer and brighter shades, such as jewel tones like emerald green.
Eclectic styles: With no one design period dominating the scene, look for home styling that incorporates a variety of periods.
Play with patterns: A wide range of patterns will be popular, including abstract and large-scale designs, geometric shapes and nature patterns, such as floral.
Material matters: Wood, metal, brass and other natural materials will play a big role in home decor in the year ahead.
And what interior looks are expected to wane this year? Designers are looking to decrease their use of the following: purple hues; industrial metals and reclaimed/recycled woods; and old-world classic styles.
