The rise of Scandinavian minimalism in previous years, with stark black-and-white color combos, has changed to softer, warmer hues. Think mid-century and bohemian-inspired decor, such as wooden string shelves and wicker chairs, hand-woven Berber rugs and leather-framed mirrors, a wide range of browns, beiges and creams. They offer a rural, but still cool, atmosphere, and fit perfectly with matte black on the walls in the kitchen or bathroom, or the plain white subway tiles that are so hip right now. For those looking at flat screens all day long, natural textures(think wood and woven textiles) offer a welcome relief. Don’t be afraid of mixing different types of timber—oak, birch and nutwood, for example—but try to stick to wood that’s as untreated as possible, rather than high-polished surfaces. If you’re short of space, get rid of your heavy sofa and consider a light day bed, which is making a huge comeback. Try travertine or any other natural stone instead of marble, which has become a bit tired now.

Fashion goes hand in hand with interiors for this super new trend. Industrial pieces with an 80s appeal are coming back, and with the revival of designers and architects such as Ettore SottsassMemphis design is very much in vogue these days. Inspired by Art DecoBauhaus and Pop Art, a wide range of playful and experimental ideas from the second half of the 20th century is flooding interior design. Think of abstract paintings and carpets, bold furniture from Vitra or Kartell, and cheerful kitchen accessories such as Alessi. These newly rediscovered patternsand geometrical forms create a home that feels structured and curated, with a sense of order, while asymmetrical shapes, color clashes, and cheerful motifs promote a sense of happiness. Invest in originals or artisanal pieces instead of opting for DIY—this trend is all about perfection.

Say goodbye to pastels and all-white interiors—opulent jewel tones such as emerald green, amethyst, navy blue and rosy hues from pink to purple and burgundy will put fashion and passion into your home décor. What could be more soothing than velvet? The fabric feels luxurious and welcoming for fall and winter, and it goes with the new color range perfectly. With the rise of interior designers such as Paris-based India Madhavi, the combination of velvet and metal has become increasingly popular. Go for gold (for example, the iconic Sputnik chandelier) or classic aged brass instead of copper, which seems to have run its course. Celebrate a new dining culture with the return of craftmanshipglass blowingartisanal porcelain (such as by Fornasetti) and eye-catching drinks trolleys.
