You already know that interior design trends, like fashion trends, come and go every year. We’re constantly presented with bold headlines projecting what’s “IN”. But what surprisingly popular interior-design trends are “OUT” this year? According to Insider, these design trends are predicted to disappear…
According to Interior designer Rachel Street, host of DIY Network’s “Philly Revival,” shiplap
— the Joanna Gaines-esque white wood paneling that has become a staple of farmhouse style
—is no longer all the rage.
Instead, designers are finding alternative ways to incorporate texture into a space, such as opting for tile, plaster, rattan, or walls of live plants.
Dennese Guadeloupe Rojas of Interiors by Design shared, “Gray kitchen interiors can look cold and lack distinction. Instead, I foresee bolder colors gaining popularity.”
Dakota Johnson’s green kitchen was quarantine’s hottest color trend and showed us that bold is the new black. What color is next? Rojas predicts indigo blue will become especially trendy.
While this may challenge our notions of “timeless” or “classic” design, the age of minimalistic, all-white interiors is predicted to come to an end.
Charismatic, hue-infused kitchens began as a way for bold homeowners to stand out from the clinical, bright white pack. Now color has become mainstream. Racing red anyone? How about a rich eggplant purple?
According to Rande Leaman, of Rande Leaman Interior Design, “Barn doors are something that we will look back on and say ‘Oh my gosh! That was 2019, 2020 and before!’”
Pocket doors and classic French doors are predicted to replace this faux-rustic farmhouse essential.
Accent walls—a wall that’s painted a different color than the others in a room—are predicted to wane in popularity.
“Accent walls can look childish and be too distracting,” Rojas told Insider. “We’ll hopefully be returning to monochromatic walls that blend seamlessly with the decor without the startling drama of an accent wall.”
