Without necessarily having a magazine house and having an indecent budget, one can adjust the decoration of your home to the trends that arrive in the fall and which will stay next year. A decorator can charge about 32 euros per hour of work and the projects range between 225 and 25,000 euros, according to Habitissimo, portal of decoration and reforms.
In addition, some styles such as natural and Nordic, industrial and retro repeat. And it has the green doors open, that is, «the growing concern for the environment and the use of recycled materials such as plastic, glass or cork», explains the decoration department of the real estate agency Nova te Asesora.
WHAT YOU ARE GOING TO TAKE
The fashion of not hiding anything so that the houses are a reflection of the daily life of its inhabitants is accentuated. «We have gone from the compartmented house to the house-ship where everything is in sight and where everything is shared, the real luxury is space, and the more there is (or the feeling of it), the better», recommends Enric Pastor, director of AD Spain, magazine of decoration, architecture, art and design. The reforms tend to unify rooms and walls are removed in search of natural light and very functional spaces.
A clear trend in interior design is the use of natural wood with ecological treatments. «There was a time when it was sought without imperfections, but nowadays architects and interior designers opt for the search for wood in its most natural state, where its fiber is appreciated and even the knots», details Isabel María Llorente, one of the founders of the Maderea platform. Pine and oak are the species most used for interiors.
For his part, Enric Pastor believes that the time has come to bet on marbles and other stones (malachite, onyx), as well as wood paneling, wallpaper with handcrafted finishes and special paintings (pastel shades turn). «The decorators say that they are natural materials, that they have poetry and they are unique, there is not a marble or a vein of wood equal to another,» he says.
DRESS SOILS AND WALLS
In addition to wood and marble, ceramic tiles that imitate this and other natural materials such as stone will remain in force. Also the hydraulic tiles as a carpet or to delimit areas, María José González-Barros, CEO of Espaciodeco.com. The improvements in digital ceramic printing technology that emulate any finish with many designs and adaptable to any room have ended up conquering the interiors, explain in the Spanish Association of Ceramic Tile and Flooring Manufacturers (Ascer).
Apart from the material, what most like the homeowner are the floors that do not require work for their installation, they emphasize Habitissimo. This portal advances that the typical terrazzo of the 80s and 90s become trend again. «They have already been seen in the Valentino store in New York or in reform projects where they are committed to a more eclectic aesthetic.»
Those who opt for the industrial style have to collect concrete and polished cement in both floors and walls. Or of papers that recreate those textures for the lowest budgets. Do not lose sight of the cork. «It is a lesser known material, but it offers very interesting solutions in kitchens and bathrooms due to its resistance to wear, impact and scratches, and by not absorbing dust or dirt, it is a hypoallergenic material, very suitable for asthmatics and allergies,» Houzz says. .is.
In kitchens, it is an absolute tendency to coat the walls with lacquered glass, such as those from the Lacobel firm, which are of light colors. In addition, they are resistant and clean, says González-Barros.
The wallpaper does not lose its protagonism, which becomes more colorful and with tropical prints. For the most daring are the «papers that imitate worn, broken fictitious, torn, and with references to the natural», indicate in Espaciodeco.com. The most novel thing is the use of vinyl papers both on walls and floors, and even in the bathroom. «Firms like Vescom, Inkiostro Blanco, or Momenti develop vinyl printing to create incredible atmospheres in these rooms of the house, ideally combining bare walls with one with vinyl, finished in linen or silk,» recommends González-Barros.
BETWEEN THE FUNCTIONAL AND THE ‘VINTAGE’
According to the Habitissimo portal, the furniture is still light and versatile so as not to burden the environment. «The wicker and rattan are no longer alone in the outdoor furniture and enter the room.»
Premium that are functional and modular: seats that serve to store, folding tables and flexible lamps. Nothing already has a single function inside the house. «The modular and combinable furniture will be the favorite for the brands,» they argue in the decoration portal.
There is another current and that is to bet on vintage furniture, «especially those born in the 50s and 60s, they will always be there, they are pieces that help the house have a warm, friendly and fun atmosphere. In sofas and armchairs, it is better to bet on contemporary designs, more comfortable, adapted to the body and XXL format, the best ones are those designed by Patricia Urquiola, Jasper Morrison or Antonio Citterio, «says Pastor.
At the time of lighting there is no doubt: the warm light is the queen and if it is lower better (points of light on the wall combined with table and floor lamps). «Lighting is 40% of the comfort of a space and it deserves to be given time, fortunately the halogens have stopped being manufactured and it is time to replace them with luminaires that offer indirect, more diffuse light», explains Pastor.
In the kitchen the large linear cabinets are replaced by light shelves that show the utensils. The orderly and empty aspect of these spaces disappears in favor of more real and warm kitchens. The glass jars and pots come out of the cupboards and carpets, large tables, cushions and dining chairs are placed.
«The kitchens are almost always integrated into the living rooms and separated by large glass sliding doors that go from floor to ceiling to be able to close when looking to delimit a room,» says the CEO of Espaciodeco.com.
