A technical term for design and architecture that focuses on our connection to nature and bringing the outdoors into the home. With a majority of the population living in cities, nature is scarce, thus people are yearning for this feel-good element more and more. As our lives have been more confined to our personal living spaces, the craving for increased outdoor activity, in gardens, patios and balconies has escalated. These spaces allow social interaction in a safe way as well as additional physical exercise. Therefore outdoor furniture, outdoor kitchens, and other outdoor features are more popular than ever.

A shift towards more conscious consumption is trending in the most positive way, with people reevaluating their consumption habits and environmental impacts. This of course has made its way into the home design and decor side of decisions as well. Consumers are looking for sustainably made products and buying second-hand. Interior designers are predicting a large increase in people upcycling and repairing their home accessories. Consumers also expect businesses to do their part. A Nielsen study proved 81% of people strongly agreed that companies should help to improve the environment.



Interior design companies are confirming that working from home has a major impact on current decor and design plans. Putting together a formal workspace has simply become a necessity for a majority of households. This translates to the addition of office type furniture into kitchens, living rooms, and kids rooms; adding multiple workspaces has proven to allow for a more harmonious and efficient home environment.

The fifty’s chic of Mid-Century Modern never goes out of style and right now it’s everywhere. Retro natural wooden designs, clean lines, and luxurious textures are what people seem to be craving right now. The feeling harkens back to a simpler, airy, sunny time.

And last but not least is probably one you have not heard of before, the Grandmillennial style.

“Taking fringe, trim, chinoiserie, drapery, skirts on furniture, slipcovers, wallpaper—all of that–and updating them to be convenient for today's 30-year-old,” is what grandmillennial style is all about, according to interior designer Becky Boyle.

To summarize, it’s essentially modern-day design partnering with retro elements. It’s using Millennial creativity and imagination to incorporate hand-me-downs and inherited pieces, next to secondhand items and reclaimed furniture while making it all function in a modern home. It’s a style that’s giving a fresh look to outdated trends that were part of their childhood years. It’s cheeky, it’s fun and feels oh so retro in a hip way.
