Where do you find stylish decorative inspiration to make your home feel all the more fabulous and well-appointed? If you’re looking for new interior design ideas or are in need of fresh inspiration to update any room in your home, online photo sharing platform Pinterest is endlessly fun to scroll. In fact, the company just released the top home décor searches of the year, and according to the interior designers at firm Décor Aid, these are the best home trends worth trying.
By now everyone has had enough with Mid-Century Modern and minimal décor, making way for the triumphant return of heady maximalism. In fact, consider it the complete opposite of both as the design style allows you to be freer with your choices and execution. Think bolder, more expressive design, richer colors, indulgent prints, and happy juxtapositions.

Who doesn’t love sitting by a roaring fireplace? Pinterest users certainly do as the platform reported a whopping increase of 763% in searches, making modern fireplaces second on the list.

PAINTED GEOMETRIC PANELS

And while it can be laborious to commit to, taping off segments and painting them in contrasting colors for a graphic play on geometrical shapes will only help to modernize your home. And if you’ve got a room that you’d like to elevate to make it feel much bigger than it is, then painting your ceiling will definitely do the trick. Just be sure that you stick to no more than three colors to ensure that it doesn’t come off as visually noisy or heavy-handed.
