Interior design trends come and go—two-toned kitchen cabinets? As of now, out. Incorporating natural elements? As always, in. But, there's one decorating movement that’s ridden the trend wave for years (and years) now, and we want an answer to its ultimate trendiness: farmhouse design.
After a decade of shiplap walls and barn doors saturating the interior design world, the question remains: is farmhouse still in style? Or, should you set down the distressed wood and try another trend? We asked two design experts for their thoughts.
First things first: how can you recognize farmhouse design? According to McKay, farmhouse style can include a variety of features, including large doors, vaulted ceilings, and reclaimed materials, such as old wood beams and boards. Other materials often used include copper, cedar shingles, stone, wainscotting, and wallpaper.
A farmhouse feel can be incorporated into any room, from a living room with an oversized fireplace to a petite powder bath with reclaimed wood walls. Most farmhouse designs are dominated by a melange of neutral hues, like whites and creams.
“I would consider farmhouse a style that is meant to convey a warm and inviting atmosphere,” says Young.
There’s nothing new about the style. In fact, its roots are very, very old—think colonial era 1700s.
“Similar to how most trends begin, the style originated just as a way of life,” Young says. “It was first popularized in rural settings, by necessity.”
So farmhouses have been around forever, according to McKay, conjuring up feelings of the country and wide open spaces. Imagine big porches, simple living, rustic architecture, and natural materials.
In comes contemporary farmhouse design, which quickly rose

As we look ahead to 2024, it's important to reflect back on what colors we should leave behind. Since interior designers work with so many different color palettes throughout their projects, we asked a few to share the colors they'd be happy parting ways with and why.
One of the best things about looking ahead to a new year is anticipating what trends we’ll see on the rise. From predicting the top colors to determining next year’s booming decorating trends, designers are pros at knowing what we’ll all love in the coming months and beyond.
Believe it or not, 2024 is approaching fast, and so are the new year’s trends. You may want to start paying close attention to what’s in now, especially since styles come and go so quickly—remember Pampas grass and ombre? One of this year's most captivating predictions is hypnotic design, a style that includes a loosely patterned, intricate wood veneer. Its hypnotic look takes center stage, even when used on smaller pieces of furniture. Hypnotic design started in the 1980s with Ettore Sottsass, the pioneer of the Memphis design movement. This design era was developed in response to the low-key minimalism of mid-century modern decor that was popular in the 1950s and early 1960s—and is still on trend today.
A hot design trend can be as exciting as it is tempting. It offers the perfect opportunity to shop for more home decor and redo your space to make it feel new again. But not all interior design trends appeal to everyone, even the ones that seemingly everybody likes. There are some design trends that, popular as they are, are secretly despised by some unlikely haters—interior designers.
Each new year brings with it plenty of design trends to get excited about—and if you're longing to incorporate a new look into your space without giving it a complete overhaul, you'll want to keep reading.
For years, it seemed like the goal of every major home overhaul was to tear down as many walls as possible—new builds exalted the open floor plan. But as was the case with so many other home design trends, the pandemic changed our perspectives. Our homes became our offices and schools, and we suddenly remembered the value of walls.
There is a reason that fall brings on what’s affectionately known as «sweater weather.» This is the perfect season for layering, after all—and turns out, layering is designers' favorite styling trick to get things warm and toasty at home.
The world of home decor is vast, and we’re constantly amazed by the designers, creators, and creatives who cross our paths.
