Room lifestyle

Room lifestyle trend is about a style that makes you happy and content. You have heard of Hygge (pronounced hue-guh) it’s a conscious way to live. Slow down enjoy the moment, enjoy a home-cooked meal with family and friends. The goal is to make each day extraordinary. Welsh Cwtch (rhymes with butch) lifestyle is one that gives you that magical feeling of safety and familiarity. There are not necessarily specific products, colors or furniture that are defined as such with these two design trends, it is more about creating an atmosphere within your rooms that is comforting. Using a combination of furnishings to create a lifestyle that is comfortable for you and those around you.

Less is more, still reigns true in room design. The minimalistic design trend will have pieces that mean something, possibly have multiple functions and contribute to your lifestyle creating a cozy feeling in a room. Beautifully made one-of-a-kind handmade pieces will be the highlight in a room. Stunning textured natural elements will break up the industrial look, creating an ambiance of relaxation and well-being.

Furniture will have clean lines but include a softer element. The mid-century trend will continue tipping toward Art Deco style. The curved couch will be an element that will be incorporated in a lifestyle living room, covered in a luxurious velvet.

Natural and eco-friendly materials will be important in decorating. The use of plants, preferably real but artificial can work also, and will continue to never go out of style, becoming a classic design trend. Still, purifying the air we breathe along with bringing appeal and splendor into a space. Green wall installations are popping up in many buildings.

Kitchens and other trends

The white kitchen design trend continues to be popular, although the white will be softer with a warmer tone.
