A change of season is a great time to make updates to your home. If you’re not sure where to start, it’s a good idea to gather inspiration from up-and-coming trends in interior design to ensure your home never looks outdated.
We took a deep dive to discover which styles are emerging and are expected to stay. Before you plan your fall home updates, take a look at what we found.
Neutral color palettes
The color palette guides the design choices in a home. A recent analysis by Pinterest uncovered a three-fold increase in searches for ‘neutral color palettes’ and ‘earth tones’ in home decor. When at home, it’s clear many Americans prefer soft hues that are reflective of nature to create a calming environment.
Decor and furniture choices can extend to the closet to create a cohesive color scheme throughout the entire home. ClosetMaid offers a variety of closet systems in neutral tones, such as Modular Closet in taupe.
The Modular Closet line features stackable units to organize all clothing and accessories.
The ‘modern’ ’70s
Continuing with the trend of earth tones and neutral colors is an embrace of certain ’70s styles but updated with a new feel.
The decade is largely known for rattan furniture and retro colors that feed our nostalgia. The designs have been modernized for today’s preferences, which is now reflected in wood-based furniture and a softer take on those vintage colors.
To adopt a modern ’70s style choice in your home, consider furniture with a mix of wood and metal materials to tone down the look. A coffee table in a retro design with natural wood material is an affordable way to capture this trend and quickly transform a small space.
ClosetMaid’s Mixed Material Furniture comes in a variety of natural-look colors.
Cube organizers can also be updated with new fabric bins in natural colors. The neutral tones update a space while providing a solution for clutter.

When we think of traditional minimalism, we often think of cold and unadorned areas that lack the comfort of home. Soft or new minimalism, however, is a more contemporary take on the style.
This new minimalism dictates limited decoration and furniture use, making room for air and free space without an empty feel.
Dual-purpose furniture is an easy way to accomplish new minimalism. Functional storage furniture, such as a media stand with drawers, provides a home for remotes, books and other small items to keep clutter at bay.

An embrace of trends in interior design can go a long way in keeping your home up-to-date. By starting with small and affordable updates, you can ensure your home remains a comfortable oasis.
