design

for the last 10 years. I don't have any formal training in design, but it is one of my deepest passions. I'm a big designer, especially when it comes to furniture, I love learning about it and hearing what's new, so that's where I stand on this topic, so yeah, I'm excited to hear what the professionals think and then , before we start, a couple of things, one of them, this video is sponsored. by function of beauty I'm a long time fan of function beauty so I'm excited to tell you more about them later so stay tuned and two we're going to talk about what's hot and what's going to be hot but I just want to preface.

More Interesting Facts About,

what i really think about trendy home design...

This is saying that whatever you want is what you want and don't feel like you need to change anything about what interests you to align with what is supposedly in fashion. This is all fun and interesting and there is no right or wrong way to do it at

home

. decoration or design, if you like it, you like it and that's all it needs to be, so that's all I have to say about it and why don't we jump right into it so there's one particular item that we're We'll take a look later, but first let's start from the basics.
what i really think about trendy home design
What is a trend? Where does it come from? Who decides it? When it starts? We need to know these things before we can talk about what will be

trendy

. So there are two main sources that trends generally start from and this can apply to anything from

home

design to fashion and even music and the two basic sources are top down or as a growth independent based, so the top down trends are things that come from like the elite designers, the trend setters, the people who actually manufacture and like to create these furniture designs and trends and they are the ones who produce what is sold to them, so they somehow decide what is fashionable and what the basic things are more things that happen culturally independently, it is not something that is generally predicted, something that we are going to see a lot and that is influencing design right now is this whole work from home movement, it's not something we

really

expected to see but it happened and it's affecting a lot of things and we want things to be comfortable and it's affecting things as we want things to be comfortable. things to be comfortable, we want things to be more functional instead of looking pretty because we stay home a lot.
what i really think about trendy home design
We're using our spaces more and that's influencing what's being done, so now, talking about those top-down design trends, when they start, it takes a while before they end up in stores that are maybe affordable for people like you and me. I mean, I'm not going to pretend that I know about fashion, but when fashion trends first appear in Paris and Fashion Week and all that, it takes a while before those exact trends are imitated in more produced stores. en masse, remember? the infamous Devil Wears Prada clip talking about cerulean blue. I'm going to insert as much of that clip as my editors think is safe.
What you don't know is that that sweater isn't just blue, it's not turquoise, it's not Lapis Lazuli is actually cerulean and it's kind of funny how you think you've made a decision that exempts you from the fashion industry when in reality you're wearing a sweater that was selected for you by the people in this room and that's period. but that's the exact example of something that starts out as a very high-end trend and then eventually makes its way to stores that maybe we have registered citizens to buy from and we think it's

trendy

, that's how things are going, so let's look at This exactly happens, but with home design and decor, so we have this chair here.
I'd bet that 99 of you have seen this chair before somewhere, so this chair was originally an Ames chair designed by Charles and Ray Ames around the '50s. And in fact, you can buy this chair today on the website from Herman Miller and it will cost you, it looks like it's on sale, around $633 if you want the original, so after something is trending on its own from the original source, you'll end up seeing it in like these high-end furniture stores like west elm or cb2 so look at this chair it is for sale at rove concepts which is a more expensive furniture store and if you want to buy it from them it will cost you well if you are a member of 200 and if you are not more than that , many times these things are licensed replications, meaning they are allowed to look very similar, but they cost less and most of the time they are just a different version of what is already in style and after there passed through stores like these, you may end up finding it at even more affordable stores, like Target, you can get the plastic chair with wooden legs at Target for 48.99 and, if you

really

want to be extra.
I found this chair on aliexpress. You can get a set of four for 27, which is like seven dollars per chair. In a recent video, I went over the differences of why there is such a range of costs and why things cost. more to get them from the original source versus replication. I'm not going to go over all of that again, but I'll link to that video below if you want to learn more, so it's just a quick summary of where trends come from and how they're sourced. It started how we make our way through the stores that you and I might shop at and sets us up as a good place to understand where trends are going next year, so knowing that that whole process takes time is an easy way Predicting the future is simply seeing what these kinds of high-end designers are doing and knowing that if it's hot there, it's going to make it to a store where you might buy later, that's one way to predict and another way to predict the future.
What we can predict is that somehow, fashion and trends have been in this 20 year cycle where something comes back every 20 years. We can look at decades like the '60s and '80s, they were super bright, colorful, and colorful, and even like the early 2000s, everyone was wearing rainbow skinnies. Bright colored jeans are in and then if you look at the previous decades, like the 70s and 90s, those were more muted and less bright tones, even in the 2010s we were into black and white minimalism, very simple, but if we know something about how that cycle 20 works it gives us an idea of ​​what the 2020s could be like, but it is like a brief summary of the trends and how we know where they come from and how we can guess where they are going.
I think this sets us up for a really good place to start looking at that article about what trends are supposed to be hot, so take that away, in the future, okay, so the article we're going to look at is apartment therapy and it's called Le We asked 80 designers what homes will look like in 2021 and this is what they said. I don't know who these 80 designers are, but I'm curious to hear from them as soon as someone says this is what it will be. I instantly say, "Oh yeah, it is, so I'm very ready to give you my opinion if I don't agree, so let's jump right into the topic so they've broken it down into nine different points." or nine different trends that we'll see, I can't actually calculate, I think there's nine trends and a speed round, so anyway, the first thing that jumps out here is what materials do you think are going to be big in 2021 and things. on your list there is vegan leather, concrete, boucle and travertine, yes, 100, I already agree with this.
Something that's not on your list that we saw really explode last year is kane and rattan again, those are really natural materials, light woods, things like that that are soft. oh I must say the reason they have these things on their list is because they say people crave a sense of calm, which means they want warm, rich textures, which I guess makes sense, there's a lot of chaos going on, we need something to calm Mira, the boucle was like at the end of last year it was really going big. cb2 was doing a lot of boucle stuff to restore the hardware.
If you watched my video where I attempted to make a boucle chair, you can watch it at the link above and below. It went more or less well, but I think those things, as we're seeing them appear in these larger stores like cb2, will only continue as they make their way to more affordable stores in the future. Specifically, I don't know about this one. how I feel about this, I think things that are similar to concrete, like plaster wall and stucco wall, will definitely be great, but as for gray concrete, I don't know, I feel like it feels a little hard and I feel like it had its time when copper and marble were really in style.
I think that was the era of concrete. They all made things with concrete. I've gotten attention for that, we have a lot of concrete DIY and I think it feels a little cold. so no, I don't know, unless it's the stained concrete, the warmest tones that I can see, but the rough gray concrete, I don't know if I'm into this funny travertine because I literally have a travertine coffee table. It wasn't long ago and I hadn't seen much of it up until that point so I think that's when it's definitely starting and it's going to explode so it's a rock but it's a warm rock so I see how that can definitely be falling into a trend we are seeing.
Well, they say that palettes will continue to become earthier and rawer and composed of more natural materials and again I agree, I think there is a big cultural shift towards a more eco-friendly mindset, which I do. It also goes back to using a lot of natural materials like cottons and linens and I'm here for that and lastly on this natural materials point, they have a note about how houseplants aren't slowing down anytime soon, say the monstera and what Or did they mention that the birds of paradise are going to be huge this year? Again I disagree with this one.
I know, I know that plants are literally like our brand on this channel, but just from what I'm seeing in the style, I don't know. I know if they are necessarily out of fashion, but I don't know if they will continue to grow at the rate they did in previous years. In fact, I think about things like dried grasses and things like dried eucalyptus, things I don't even know about. I know what the word is, but these are stick-like cuttings and I'll show photos here. I think they will be the most fashionable ones, they are very easy to care for and are a little softer to look at than similar ones. a very rich green, so honestly, that's what I think we'll see more of compared to the very rich green, um tropical houseplants, but I mean, those are definitely still in fashion, okay, point number two, this one. is a phrase and not a Not a single point has been left out, that's enough, point number two is that most designers agree that personalization has become and will continue to become increasingly popular because the People have spent more time in their homes.
Yes 100 agree and I'm also a big fan of this is a trend because customization usually involves DIY that's what I love to do that's what our brand is so DIY being trendy here that's why it put me in the mood. ready, I'm ready, I'm ready, they say that since the pandemic hit, people have been forced to take a better look at their homes and if they really like their spaces and the things they want to change in their spaces, they say designers are receiving more and more requests for custom-made pieces. Designers are seeing more and more requests for custom-made pieces.
Custom cabinets, like custom cabinets, and I totally get this one because people are at home working from home, studying from home, they see all the stuff they have and they want to hide it a little bit better, I think in recent years. exposed shelving where you showed that everything was completely inside, I think the opposite people want to put doors on things now, um, since we're seeing that the ikea trend of putting doors on ikea products that didn't have them is tremendously huge and successful. I'm seeing things like the curio cabinet come back into style, which is basically like a fancy display case.
It's a way to take all the things you have and make them look good displayed on the shelf instead of just around your house, so I'm totally pleased. I see that as a trend and I see that since there are a lot of great more personalized DIY opportunities, they predictthat accent walls will be making a big comeback and this is definitely because painting a wall is one of the easiest things you can do. To transform a space anyone can do it, but I think the difference this time is that we will see personalized accent walls. I remember a few years ago the solid color accent wall was the big trend that Seeing rooms like this may seem familiar, but I think the new trend we're going to see is accent walls with even more custom textures, so things like the solid color accent wall. plaster we've been doing, concrete walls, lime washed walls and especially the wallpaper, you'll see more rooms like this everywhere and I think that's because you get even more customization options with wallpaper than with just one color or a textured wall, you get more options than with just one color, so that's my prediction.
I think there are more spaces like this coming up and while we talk about personalization being a big trend, I just have to talk to you about the role of beauty because they are a hair care line that is all about personalizing your beauty routine with the one we have worked on. Before, I have been using their products for almost a year and I love what they have been doing to my hair. Beauty Feature makes their products sulfate-free, paraben-free, toxin-free, GMO-free, vegan, and cruelty-free, to name a few of the reasons I use them. I love them this year.
My personal goal with hair has really been to grow my hair and make it as healthy as possible. I have to admit some of this is with the help of extensions, but overall my hair is growing and feels great, so if you also have personal hair goals. You can take their online quiz and customize what you like so it aligns perfectly with the goals you're looking for, so on the quiz some of the things I selected as personal goals were like deep conditioning, hydration. lengthening and everything that goes into your custom hair care order, as you know, as your hair grows, the ends can become a little dry and brittle and this has really helped with hydration.
I also put some bleach in my hair. As you can see and honestly my hair is still very soft so not only do I have goals for how I want my hair to look and feel, I also have personal goals but also companies I want to invest in in the next few years and those. They are the ones that focus on eco-friendly products, so that's another reason why I love Function of Beauty, in an effort to be more eco-friendly. Function of Beauty has converted all the cardboard boxes their products come in to 100 recycled craft materials. and all the bottles your product comes in are made from post-consumer recyclable plastic and not new virgin plastic, and you can also opt out of receiving the pump every time I have been using the same one as in the past. year and it stayed great, that means they send me less and less plastic.
I also have the personalized bottles to say Becky's feature, which is really cute because at the shower these are my hair products, baby, and you get to choose the color too. I chose to go without dye, I just like white, I think it looks clean and I think it's like the smell of roses and I still haven't gotten over this scent. I keep getting the same one because it smells so delicious. Do you have any personal hair goals for this year? Let me know in the comments below. If you have it, I encourage you to check out the beauty feature.
If you click the link below in the description you will get 20 off your first set. Alright, thank you very much, beauty function, let's get back to that list. Point number three. Curved furniture will be everywhere. I agree one thousand percent with this one. We're already seeing it come back and I don't see it going anywhere anytime soon. Mario Bellini. The sofa is huge. The Linea Rose sofas and floor chairs are huge. All of these large pieces look comfortable, luxurious and soft. With my eyes I don't see him going anywhere, I just see him getting bigger and better.
They say functionality and comfort come before what looks good on your Instagram post. I agree one hundred percent with this one, as if we had been talking about people being at home. now more than ever and they're sitting on the couches that they bought for that Instagram post and they're noticing if they're comfortable or not and people are buying things that they just want to hang out on instead of things that they want to you know, look beautiful and there are things that hit the mark, like the sofas I showed before, so calm, so beautiful, the restoration hardware cloud sofa that has been huge in the past, I don't know how long and I don't see it going anywhere part.
In the short term because it's incredibly comfortable, I don't have one, but I can say it's really comfortable, so people just want things that are comfortable to hang out in and I totally understand that, and I think if that's what people If you want, there will be designers. that they find a way to make that fashionable and that comes in the form of plush round sofas and chairs and that will only be more and more in the next year until the next point number four, the meditation rooms will be stylish they say that Wellness and self-care have been a big focus this year, I mean obviously this is 100 accurate, we're dealing with a lot of things as a society mentally and taking care of your mental health is so important, in addition to your physical. health, I mean there is a literal pandemic, we need to be healthy and take care of ourselves, so I think finding a way to manifest that idea in our home spaces will definitely be a trend that we are seeing, I think something interesting is in At the beginning of All of this there was a big rush to work from home offices and work setups and I think we've managed to unlock that, we figured out how to work from home a little bit, but now I'm figuring out, how can I be at home and save work?
Where can I go? In my house that I've been trapped in and that doesn't remind me of work. How can I detox from all my electronic devices? Where can I go? I need a place to set up that allows me to breathe and I think that will come in the form of relaxation and meditation areas. I found some photos of spaces that already look great to hang out in. Do you think this is it? like a room we should try and design and DIY, could you see that? Let me know. I think this could be fun.
I really think this will be a massive trend that we will see continue in number five. 44 of designers think that closed floor plans will make a big comeback in the future. They say quarantining together has shown us that we all need our own spaces. Yes, this makes sense because have you tried having a business call or a face-to-face meeting with friends? Being in the same room with someone else who is trying to do something is like a literal nightmare. I feel a little torn on this because, yes, I think you know that having spaces in a house is more important now than ever, but I think? a lot of small rooms are coming back, I don't know, I mean, I remember when I was a kid, my parents had a living room where, like a fancy living room, I don't think that's necessarily going to come back because I don't know how useful it is. .
I know, I think maybe yes, the spaces could go back to being more divided than the giant open room that we've been seeing, but I think the key is that they will be useful spaces. Hello friend, are you coming? Hi, you just said your nose is going to be here, so speaking of having a more divided space, I think maximalism as a concept is going to make a comeback. Minimalism was big in the 2010s, people were looking to have clean, empty spaces, getting rid of as much stuff as possible. possible marie kondo was huge, but I don't know how realistic that idea is for everyone.
I think now that we work from home we have a lot more things with us and things that are necessary, so we just need a place to put them, so I think designing your things will be back in style. This is just a personal opinion. I'm adding to what they said, if you look at, for example, a shelf like this that is minimal. and you look at a shelf like this that's a little bit more maximum. I think the second shelf is what we'll see more of as people get things and it's like how can I present them well on a shelf or even pull them back? to the idea of ​​closed cabinets i have a lot of stuff and what do i do with them instead i have a lot of stuff i need to get rid of them going back to the article they say designers understand that renault as a whole space and placement of literal architectural walls is not easy nor cheap, so temporary dividers are going to return.
Yes, I agree with this. You can't put up a wall in a day, so why not make a temporary wall? We've been doing that with our giant synthetic glass industrial walls. If you want to see how it was done you can click on the video here and the description below, but yes, temporary dividers are a great solution and are often easy to make. -capable and while I don't think they will necessarily solve the sound problem as much as a physical wall, I think it will be a visual division that will help you mentally compartmentalize your home where you spend so much time. in um, going back to another point which was kind of meditation zones, having spaces for different things in the home, like this is my work space, this is my eating space, this is my relaxing space, it's important now. more than ever and I like putting up dividers like this could really help, I really like this photo here, it's a very good example of how to make a visual divider with a bookshelf that is practical instead of just a room divider that has the only purpose, well, on point number six, this feels more like a suggestion than it does.
It's like a trend, so based on past trends, you're seeing that people have spent too much on single-use devices, window treatments and furniture sets, and that people are spending less on things like sofas, rugs and artwork, so let me give you my opinion on this. There are a lot of different points here, but the first is that the furniture sets are out. I agree that I grew up in a house where, like every room, it had a matching set, like the matching bed, the nightstands matching the dresser, and I still don't believe that. We're seeing that come back.
I think having a room where each piece is a little different while still cohesive just makes it feel a little more interesting, a little more thought out, and a little more personalized. We're still talking about customization being huge. So for example look at this living room, it's a very white neutral living room that has a lot of matching furniture and then in contrast look at this living room which is still a very neutral and bright living room but with all the pieces. They are a little different, tell me which one you think is more interesting, my vote is for the second one, so speaking of things that people understand in art, I disagree here because I think art is completely subjective and what a ten.
To you, a thousand dollar painting might not speak to me at all and have no value, so in my opinion it's hard to put a price on what's valuable in art, especially considering it's so easy to make DIY art, second-hand art, for a really low cost and to be seen. great in a room in my opinion, for example, I'm going to show two photos here of very similar art. Tell me which one you think costs more money, the one on the left or the one on the right, the one on the left. actually a piece of art from studio Mickey and it costs just under a thousand dollars and the one on the right is a DIY piece from the Instagram account Coastal Oak and it probably cost him less than 50 dollars to make this according to the tutorial so I think you know that there is no reason to say that you should spend more on art, in my opinion, what I will say is that I think people think less about art instead of understanding it.
I mean, it's all personal taste, but going to Ikea and buying the first one. You find five pieces of art and put them on a wall doesn't do as much to me as going to a thrift store and buying a really interesting piece and then making one and then buying one from a cool independent artist, um and building a wall of that way we have one guest for seven danny come here can i say hello? okay, you're going to give all the opinions on the design, right, he says orange and white only, that's the future of design number seven, this is interesting because I've kind of already talked about it and I didn't agree, so they say that warm minimalism is ready to be the breakout style for 2021.
I mean, I already gave you my opinion on minimalism versus maximalism and maybe I'm just not getting it right, but if you look at the photo they used here of a kitchen , this doesn't seem minimalist to me in any way. I don't think the kitchen here is that minimalist. He has all the utensils on the counter. There seems to be a lot going on here. are some images of what I think a minimalist kitchen would look like: it haseverything neatly stacked and neatly simple empty surfaces, nothing you don't immediately need on the counters, but maybe they're talking about a color palette that's a little more minimalist one and yes, I agree, I think the soft, relaxing tones They will definitely be in fashion.
We've already talked about how relaxing and easy on the eyes they are, so yes, I see shades of white always being in style. in my opinion but I think the different types of whites will vary depending on the trend and as they say a soft creamy white will definitely be in style and I would agree too if you take a look at these living rooms. Do they look familiar to me? I feel like very bright, clean, crisp white, almost a blue tone, was definitely the trend of the early 2010s, going back to the era of minimalism where we all wanted super bright white, everything I think is on the way. and if we take a look at living rooms like these that are a little bit more creamy white, more beige, more like a richer white and variants of shades of white, I think that's the type of white rooms that we'll see more style well number eight when I saw this on the list I almost screamed because can we talk about hitting the nail on the head? or how to be so like putting up my hipster glasses before the times um wait, let me put on my hipster hat to tell you about a trend that we said it was cool before this article said it was cool um number eight is fluted furniture being everywhere and if you don't know what fluted furniture is let me explain it to you in a word you've probably heard on this channel before ring amber what wood baby it's coming back into fashion um okay but they really say that Traditionally, we might have seen this as a wall texture, we know it, but we're also seeing it come back on furniture like dining tables, coffee tables and vases.
It's another way to bring texture to the home, like we really love these simple neutrals. colors, but we don't want them to be boring, so it's worth finding ways to add textures like plaster wall and wooden things. Ribbed furniture. We love seeing them. They say that natural wood and raw blonde wood are on the rise. I love this. for the simple fact that doing a DIY project without having to worry about dying it a color makes it so much easier, so I'm talking about the smallest of reasons why I'm excited that this is a trend, but I don't know if I'm exactly ready to ditch the mid-century modern teak wood.
In my personal opinion, I don't think that's going anywhere anytime soon. Take a look at these two bathrooms, one has a sort of raw blonde wood and the other is more mid-century. -Century modern teak, I mean, I still think they both look very modern, very modern and could pass as having the current style, but let me know in the comments below if you think mcm teak furniture that kind of Darker wood will disappear soon. Point number nine, we are getting close to the end. They asked these 80 designers and told them what they think the most important decade we've had so far will inform the next decade.
I feel like people didn't read. the question when they answered this because the winning answer was the future, how can something that doesn't exist yet be a source of inspiration? I'm not sure, but the next highest response was the 70s and this one was 1,000 percent yes. I see it happening, since we know the '70s had a lot of beiges and creams and browns and muted yellows and mustards and oranges and all those fun things that were like really poppies in the '60s, but a little more muted, we see all those. colors are in again, so yeah, it makes sense that the 70s are empty, wonderful baby, let's look at hard facts.
I'm going to take some photos of literal real rooms from the 70s and show them here. Take a moment, look at it for a moment. Look at it, okay, now let's take pictures of the rooms that we have already talked about in this exact video. Do you see any similarities between the two? Because I totally do. We can already see it happening and I think it will continue and last. We have a quick round. These designers were selected from this or that design edition. I took some photos to help explain them a little better. These are not the photos that were shown to people.
These are things I took out. So that's just coming. from my perspective, but let's go over it, let's do it, let's speed it up. This first one is minimalism versus maximalism. This was a big surprise to me because they chose minimalism. I mean, in theory, minimalism is very nice, but it's just not. I don't think that's what's trendy right now, looking at these two photos I'd go with the maximalist room as what I see as the current trend right now. I don't know, maybe I'm wrong. Next, tell me: muted tones versus bright tones. um I feel like I'm doing the macarena every time I do this muted tones versus bright tone, muted tones one and for this one I agree, I think like we've talked about we want things that are easy on the eyes and soft and comfortable and relaxing and you find it more in muted tones, but like I said, there's nothing wrong with the right tones if that's what you like next we have wallpaper versus painted wallpaper.
I agree with this one too, I think people like the ones we've talked to. I want that kind of custom look now more than ever and you can get more options from a wallpaper than just one pink color because while there are an unlimited number of illuminated colors in the rainbow, in the end it's one shade. versus a wallpaper or even as a textile or as a mural or even like yes, a mural done with paint, I think you get even more variety and customization from that than with a single color gallery wall versus a single work of art. art, a single art. piece one on this one, this one, I don't really have a strong opinion either way, I think they both have their merits and would work well, if done well in any space, I think the gallery wall will always have a place to go. because it's very good for filling a space and especially for surrounding a television or I mean there are so many uses for a good gallery wall and I think maybe how we place the gallery wall and what goes on the gallery wall could change over time. time but I think in theory the gallery will always be in fashion that's my opinion and lastly we have bar cart versus bar cabinets bar cabinet one and I agree 1000 honestly and this might be taboo to say I've never liked a bar cart.
I've never been a fan of them, I just feel like they look cluttered and messy and I think most of the time I guess people have them for over styling and I don't like the idea of ​​cups and things that you eat just by sitting unused and collecting dust and then when you go to use them you have dusty martini glasses and that's a bit gross, I don't know, it's not my thing, it's never been my thing, so yeah, the bar cabinet. I see winning and especially because as we've talked about the return of closed storage we want to just hide the clutter in our lives and make things look cleaner so I totally understand why this one won that's it guys we did it . the list went through all the predictions for 2021 trends.
I'm really curious if you agree with any of these points, I mean, it turns out I agreed with a lot of them, most of them and it really made my brain moved as if it could do DIY. make it align with these trends so if there's anything in particular that we talked about today that you want us to do, let me know because I would be very happy to do it and a final reminder that these are just fun trends. It's not the end all be all, everything should be all you have to do or should do, do what your heart desires, what makes you happy and your home should look how you want your home to look.
