NEW.Brick and stone add a rustic and authentic look to your luxury home. Shiny surfaces like glass and metal elevate a home’s sophistication and allure. In the bedroom, textures can be achieved through wallpaper, accent walls, and classic beadboard. It’s time to let go of the monotonous and embrace the unexpected lift textured walls bring to your
CURRENT. Gwynyth Paltrow’s low-key but luxe fashion choices when she appeared in court during her ski crash trialearlier in 2023 were a sensation. Now, her fashion aesthetic has bled into home interiors as well. Universally referred to as “quiet luxury,” the style as it applies to homes means investment furniture pieces, a color palette that runs to neutral tones of taupe or beige mixed in with lighter shades like white or cream, minimalism, and yes, texture (see above).
NEW.Once synonymous with over-the-top styling and outdated flashiness, gold has crept back to the yay list of interior designers. Gold is now prominent in mixed-metal hardware accessories for kitchens and baths, including shiny shower heads. Variations of gold are also emerging on ceramics, quietly shimmering wall coverings, and pendant lights.
RETURNING.Arches were once a pet peeve of house flippers working to achieve an all-neutral, open concept renovation. Now, arches are back. The timeless architectural element adds whimsy to a severe modern space, frames important areas of the house, and lends an old world charm to modern homes. With the variety of styles and sizes on the market, arches are adaptable to any kind of interior design and serve as a visual interest to any room.
CURRENT. The spa bathroom will continue to hold sway because it delivers on its promise – a sanctuary, a de-stress zone, and a way in which to reset. Which is why interior designer Noa Santos is applying the bathroom’s spa sensibility to other rooms. “Natural materials like marble and stone work together to feel almost monastic, especially in soft neutral tones like creams and beiges,” he told LIvingetc.com. Why not think of redecorating other areas of your home with this in mind. Will a spa-like vibe in your home office help you to focus more? Will the Zen-like feel of your yoga room work on your home gym as well? A lot to think about.
NEW. If you’re already using video doorbells, integrated security systems, smart thermostats, and virtual assistants in your home, what’s next? With the way AI exploded this year, expect artificial intelligence to be integrated into the latest iterations of smart home devices. AI will allow new models predictive functionality, with the machine-learning ability to determine your routines and preferences so that it can deliver customized responses to enhance your overall experience as a homeowner.
