Interior Design Trends For 2010

Trends are extremely short-lived, and they keep on changing from time to time. Few years ago, green colour was very much common due to the increased awareness of global warming, and it became a symbol for saving our dear earth. Each year brings in new trends, which mark the beginning of the New Year. Year 2010 has brought many eye-catching trends, which are not only admired by individuals, but are rapidly adopting those new interior designs.

Interior designers are moving towards old traditions, as according to them, “old is new again”. Antiques and vintage pieces add life to a living space and makes interior of your house or workplace attractive. Thrift stores are the best place to look for cheap antique pieces which look extremely unique.

Rudiments of earth, linked to the resources of earth, are also in trend this year, as they are reflected in colours, deriving from plants, minerals and dirt. Tones are creating a matchless beauty, and rooms based on specific colour themes of light green and ocean blue give a pleasing impact to an individual.

Staying close to the real styles is one of the main characteristics of Interior design trends for 2010. Decorators are more into woods and metals. Wooden flooring and metallic cabinets and cupboards are “in” as compared to fully painted cabinets and carpeted flooring.

There was a time when wallpaper was common and liked by everyone, but gradually it lost its attraction, and people moved towards painted walls and ceilings. As history repeats itself, so once again wallpapers are “in”, and special patterns mainly in the colour shades of greens, blues, mustard and bronzes are becoming increasingly popular. Wallpapers create a visual impact in the room and break the monotonous outlook. These are extremely eye-catching and give a pleasurable affect.

Be bold! This is one of the mantras being used by interior decorators in establishing the new interior trends of the year 2010. Big wall hangings and picture frames are “in”, but one thing should be kept in mind that not too many wall pictures or decorative hangings are placed together, as they make the place look smaller and congested. Rugs are also “in” and placed as wall hangings as well as on floors.

Glamour and risk taking designs are very much in fashion in the year 2010, and people are looking forward to making their houses and workplaces unique and different from the typical looks. Interior designers have kept their fingers crossed as they believe that the mushrooming sense of optimism will be reflected in individuals as well as their surroundings, which best explain personality of the individuals.

In short, year 2010 is a year of new innovative designs and techniques. People are moving towards antique decorative pieces, whereas wallpaper is once again in trend with touch of ground-breaking patterns. Interior decorators want to reflect the individual moods into their homes and workplace, so one is not restricted to follow the styles entirely, rather people can bring changes to their living spaces according to their own tastes.
