Although in decoration it is often said that everything returns, we have become nostalgic and we have looked at those trends and deco ideas that one day they took away but that we no longer like. And of some, not so long ago.
1. CUBIC SHELVES STACKED AS A SIDE TABLE
Another deco trend that we are going to keep in the trunk of memories: stack several cubic shelves – like the ones that decorate next to the sofa in this living room – as a side table or to decorate a corner. A flower arrangement and a lamp on top and it was done. Instead yes to the log-type auxiliary tables, a pouf, or a floor lamp directly. Simplify.
2. FORGET ABOUT THE CLASSIC SCREENS
We used them to separate or delimit environments. Now, with how much it takes to communicate spaces and open rooms, the screens are in the doldrums. What’s more, forget about them to create a visual or spatial separation. Instead, we bet on open shelving without back or customized solutions with vertical slats.
3. HANGING SHELVES FROM THE CEILING
This trend cuts visually and it is a difficult space to use. Being open it fills with dust and dirt (more in the kitchen with the smoke and grease that is inevitably created when cooking). And it does not serve to store things that you use little and for what you need to have on hand it is not practical because of the height.
4. NO TO THE CURTAINS!
Work furniture in the kitchen and whoosh! cloth curtain instead of doors. Let’s see, what do you think we think? No, we don’t like it anymore. We prefer an open module organized in nice baskets than fabric curtains.
5. KITCHEN ISLANDS WITH HIGH LEGS
Does it happen to you like us? Have your eyes been wide open when you see this island “raised” to high legs? We don’t like this trend anymore. The kitchen islands to the floor give more sense of strength, it is more advantageous to install the appliance in her floor space, and no dirt seeps under furniture.
6. UPHOLSTERED SOFAS WITH “SKIRT”
This kind of corner slat skirt is outdated, nothing like a floor-length sofa or one that reveals the legs, even the pretty tied or fitted covers made of linen or cotton. Agree?
7. BLINDS OR CURTAINS IN STRONG COLORS
We do not like that the main textile of the window – curtain or blind – has an intense color because it reduces luminosity and adds color to the ambient light. In other words, in this environment, everything is stained the reddish color of the fabric. That is why it is preferable to provide soft tones or colored fabrics that let light through and introduce color in the falls of the sides or in the chosen pattern.
