The Hottest Interior Design Trends Right Now

It can be hard to keep up with what’s in and what’s not when it comes to interior design trends. The pace of innovation has increased, thanks in part to a revolution of young influencers on TikTok who are introducing new ideas to audiences who’d never really considered their options before.

If you know it’s time to spruce things up but are not sure where to start, here are a few of the most popular approaches to modern home design that might steer your ideas.


Open plan home interior

It’s very common for new-build homes to incorporate open-plan designs which means that you can easily take advantage of the push to make spaces as versatile as possible. While keeping things light and airy in larger spaces, you can use room zoning – clever deployment of colour and style that visually separate sections of a wider area – to create vibrant kitchen-dining room hybrids, or incorporate a comfortable office space into a bedroom.

The seventies are back in a big way! This is true in terms of colour – think rich yellows, tans and browns as well as indulgent olive greens and dark blues – as well as furniture styles, with plenty of velvet and luxuriously curvy chairs and sofas.

Bold ceilings

If you’ve never really thought about your ceilings before, now’s a good time to start. Ceiling maximalism is growing in popularity, as more and more homeowners opt for bold colours that emphasise contrasts in texture between beams and smooth surfaces. Think of it as an opportunity to really play up the ceiling’s role as a fifth wall in your room and immediately make the whole space pop.

Environmentalism is a common thread for Gen Z influencers and that’s expressed in part through the growing interior design trend of biophilia or biophilic design, which seeks to enhance our connections to nature by incorporating more of the outside into the inside.

You can look at this from a simple perspective of adding more plants into your house, which has a variety of noted health benefits, but also consider angles like allowing more sunlight to enter your room and promoting a more natural airflow from outside. Biophilia encourages happier living by eroding the border between your space and the world around you.

Warm tones

Boring, safe whites and greys are on the outs at present, with more pronounced colours that actively welcome you into a room finding lots of love from influencers. Even just repainting one wall of a room can have a major effect on how it feels, with deep greens, dark pinks and confident blues particularly worthy of consideration here.
