8 instagram trends
Today, the rules in interior design are dictated not by designers, but by social networks. What is popular on Instagram automatically becomes in demand and relevant. Now customers want an apartment “like that blogger’s.” However, most Instagram trends die out very quickly. Novate.ru tells what interior techniques popular in social networks should be ignored if you don’t want to do repairs again in a year.
Trend 1: Macrame
Products made using the macrame technique are increasingly found in interiors decorated in the style of boho and eclecticism. On Instagram, you can often find photos of apartments with wicker decor that attract attention with their beauty and a sense of comfort. However, do not rush to look for a needlewoman who can make your dreams of a complex panel, lampshade or dream catcher using the macrame technique come true.
Designers say that in two years this trend has reached the peak of its popularity, and its relevance has gradually declined. If you like macrame, and you think that it will perfectly complement your interior, you can safely use such products to decorate the room. But if you are interested in technology only because it has been in demand for several years in a row, and you simply do not want to be left out, you should not waste time on it. This trend in 2022 will replace something else.
Trend 2: Snow-white colors
White has many advantages when it comes to its role in interior design. It visually expands the space, makes it lighter, lighter, adds freshness. Snow-white interiors look incredibly beautiful in photos posted on Instagram, but in real life there are many difficulties with them. Firstly, many people believe that the white color makes the apartment sterile and uncomfortable. Secondly, after a while the rooms begin to seem cold and faded.
To make the interior comfortable for you, and also not lose its relevance over the years, use shades of white for decorating rooms, for example, ivory, champagne or Stockholm white. Also, do not forget about bright accents that harmoniously complement the interior. Colors will enliven the apartment, make it more lively and personalized. Accents can be curtains, a carpet, sofa cushions, a blanket, posters, vases or books in covers on a rack. As for the color, you can choose your favorite or start from where the windows of the apartment go. If to the north – warmer shades (yellow, orange, red) are suitable for the interior, if to the south – cold ones (blue, emerald, purple).
Consider acquiring a bright, large-scale and expensive piece of art. It can be a painting, a statue, a vintage armchair, etc. Such an element will not only become a highlight of a snow-white interior, add some dynamics to it, but will also be a kind of “stash” for the future. If the financial situation leaves much to be desired, give preference to artistic photography.
Trend 3: Palm Print
This print is also quite common on Instagram, and this is not surprising, because tropical prints are universal. They fit equally well in the Scandinavian style, as well as in the loft or boho. Regardless of which room you are decorating – bedroom, kitchen, bathroom or living room – decorative elements with the image of palm trees look very advantageous. Especially if there are indoor plants, bamboo rugs, rattan furniture, vases with exotic prints, etc.
However, as always, there is one “but”. Palm branches have become too popular, they are present in literally every third apartment. Therefore, if you want a personalized interior, and not “like everyone else”, pay attention to something else. You will see, in less than a few months, bloggers will switch to other interior techniques, and palm trees will be among the anti-trends.
Trend 4: Artificial Plants
We do not argue, artificial flowers are very convenient. They do not need to be watered, fed, transplanted, and they look like real ones (unless, of course, you look closely). However, against the backdrop of a general desire for naturalness, naturalness, natural materials, love for fake plants seems wrong. Yes, fresh flowers are much more difficult to care for, they need to be closely monitored so that they delight you with their beauty. But, you see, their pleasant freshness and aroma favorably distinguish real flowers.
