“These insights tell us that more than ever, people are thinking and acting globally and sustainably. They’re staying home to work, entertain or be entertained, and then heading outdoors to be reacquainted with nature, look for adventure, and travel responsibly. All while lowering stress and elevating different areas of their lives” - Pinterest.
We’ve wrapped up eight home and interior trends that you’ll want to know about.
1. Japanese tubs: Bathe in the still, deep waters of your very own Japanese tub, generally set where nature can be soaked up. This trend is extra big in Australia and New Zealand and up 563% worldwide
2. Thrifted home décor: A push for more eco-friendly habits is changing how we live (searches for thrifted décor is up a massive 308%). Keep furniture out of the landfill by filling your home with op-shop bargains, up-cycle family heirlooms and get your creative on
3. Low-waste living: Trash talk is trending—in a good way (up 446%). People want easy tips to cut back on waste and tread lighter on the earth from reducing plastic to making their own natural cleaning products
4. Unisex nurseries: Maybe you’re waiting to find out the baby’s gender. Or maybe you want to avoid gender-conforming stereotypes. Neutral nurseries have been on the rise (and are set to continue with searches up 527% last year) as we seek to avoid something too frilly or too masculine, and of course create a room our children can grow into
5. Audio rooms: Searches for audio rooms are up 803% which indicates that interior design trends will meet technology even more intensively this year. The audio room can be easily combined with the living room – all you need is a cabinet with vinyls and an adapter
6. Home coffee stations: Kiwis, in particular, will be on board with this trend, which is one of the biggest searches of 2019, up a whopping 751%. All you have to do is clear some space on your bench for a coffee machine, your favourite types of coffee, cups, and toppings
7. Outdoor play areas: Nature is the perfect antidote to digital fatigue, artificial lighting and sitting culture. Getting outside can lower stress and increase energy. Create an outdoor sanctuary for your kids and they will be happy to ditch the devices and go play (and dig, splash, slide) outside
8. ‘Indian” living rooms: Searches for oriental- style living rooms have been trending by up to 2080%. You can liven up your living space with oversized sculptures, shining brass and bright colours
