Every year the home decor giant, Joybird, releases a ranking of the top 10 home decor trends on Instagram.
But why should homes have all the fun?
Gone are the days of mundane, monotonous workspaces.
A well-designed workspace doesn’t just make you look hep and cool on Instagram. It also boosts your employee morale.
They will be more likely to be enthusiastic to show up to work happily and be more productive too. Not to forget, your office decor is an extension of your brand personality to the outside world.
With so much at stake, you can longer afford to be lax about your decor style and office aesthetic.
This is why we’re here with the low down on how you can incorporate these trendy decor styles in your office.
So without any further ado, let’s get into it.
Top 10 Decor Trends On Instagram:
1. #BOHOCHIC – ECLECTIC BOHEMIAN CHIC DECOR
Boho-chic decor trends involve warm colors, organic elements, and layered textures and textiles.
Use warm-colored, organic-looking furniture across your spaces. Bring in monotone / Persian woven carpets and simple drapes.
For waiting lounges and more informal areas, include printed throw pillows on the sofas. Stick to open shelves, and fill them up with books, plants, etc.
Overflowing plants are almost a trademark of the boho-chic style. We recommend plants like the monstera, pothos, banana palm trees, ferns, succulents, cacti, calatheas, and philodendrons.
2. #INDUSTRIALDESIGN – STRONG AND EDGY INDUSTRIAL INTERIORS
A modern and edgy approach to interiors, this style is the best for offices that want a raw and bold environment.
Think strong, rugged materials like exposed brick walls, cement textured surfaces, textured wood, and metal. Use these materials on the walls, floors, and ceilings.
Next, bring in furniture and lighting that are raw, have clean lines, and are more masculine. Be sure to not fill up the room too much.
Use lush plants to offset the hard and stark industrial interiors. Think Kentia palms, fake orange trees, cast iron plants, and rows of cascading pothos.
3. #MIDCENTURYMODERN – MID-CENTURY MODERN FROM THE MAD MEN DAYS
This design style incorporates a mix of open space and clean lines, along with gentle curves and fun colors.
For quintessential mid-century style use furniture with tapered legs, in natural to medium wood tones like walnut or teak. Layer with textured fabric on top. You can also bring in an Eames lounge chair, Barcelona chair, or Wassily chair.
Balance out your colors. Use bold fabric colors on furniture with nude walls and muted art. Or let the colors of the art and accessories stand out exclusively.
Fiddle leaf figs, Monsteras, prayer plants, snake plants, or a dragon tree will finish off your space perfectly.
4. #ARTDECO – FLOWY ART DECO PIECES
When it comes to art deco, think of the Great Gatsby style, and all the glamor of the roaring ’20s.
To put this nuanced style into simple steps, we recommend sticking to streamlined, geometric shapes and patterns. Choose rich woods or gold tones, silvers, and chromes for the decor.
Set them off against dark, richly colored backdrops, or bold, art deco light fixtures.
Consider rhapis palm, areca palm, Dracaena Marginatas, painted nettle, and moss roses.
5. #SCANDINAVIANDESIGN – INFUSING THE COMFORT OF SCANDINAVIAN DESIGN
This take on minimalist style includes light hues, a blend of gentle textures, and lots of cozy hygge.
Think clean, simple, and structured lines, light wooden floors and cabinets, and lots of natural light. Stick to a neutral color palette of blacks, whites, and greys, with an occasional pop of color.
Use soft textures on the furniture, accessories, and carpets to bring cozy comfort to the space.
Place ficus, dracaenas, monsters, or fig trees in the corner of rooms. Use flowy pothos or hanging plants to soften harsh shelves.
6. #FARMHOUSESTYLE – CLASSIC FARMHOUSE FURNISHINGS
A light, simple, organic aesthetic combined with vintage elements are farmhouse decor trend essentials.
Stick to cozy furnishings with layered textures in high-contrast neutral colors, against natural wood flooring. Then sprinkle in a few vintage elements as supportive pieces.
Round it off with some dark pops of color through art or lighting fixtures.
For more formal spaces use clean-lined snake plants, aloe vera, and succulents. Or add some informality with organic spider plants, lemon trees, and umbrella plants.
7. #RUSTICDECOR – WARM AND RUSTIC INTERIORS
This decor trend is characterized by warm, inviting, old-school interiors crafted from natural materials.
Go for solid, durable furniture contrasted with soft upholstery and cozy fabrics.
For the flooring or accent sections consider distressed wood and unpolished stone with strong textures. Finally, lean towards warmer hues in your color palette.
Pair rustic decor with cactus, boxwood, aloe, ferns, or even bonsai.
8. #VINTAGEDECOR – THROWING IT BACK WITH VINTAGE VIBES
Well-curated vintage interiors are reminiscent of the elegance of the past, without looking outdated or shabby.
Antiques are the cornerstone of good vintage decor. So choose a few well-made antiques and let them shine in each space.
Then bring in vintage-inspired modern elements to balance the space. Think modern pieces with a weathered finish, or old pieces in modern colors.
Regular snake plants, agave, palms, bamboo, and cactus work, but only with vintage planters to make this decor trend really work.
9. #VICTORIAN – OLD SCHOOL VICTORIAN OPULENCE
Pure, authentic Victorian interiors will likely look drab and suffocating in today’s times. But a balanced mix of Victorian elements and modern decor can lend immense character to a space.
Add opulence with statement Victorian furniture pieces in modern finishes. Like an ornate, handcrafted Victorian desk, painted black.
Then add details like fireplace mantles, window trims, door frames, etc. Set all this against rich hues like blue, green, ochre, or red.
Skip the 21st-century trends and go with cast iron fern, kentia palm, Boston ferns, fuchsia, and jasmine.
10. #MINIMALSTYLE – CLEAN AND CALM MINIMALIST SPACES
The popular go-to decor trend of the decade, this style is reflected in its clean, calm, clutter-free, and organized aesthetic.
Think “less is more”. This is both in terms of rooms without any unnecessary objects, but also furniture and accessories that aren’t ornamented in any way.
Lean towards pieces with straight lines, minimal shapes, simple patterns, and neutral colors.
Bird of paradise, ficus, cactus, snake plant, succulents, hanging herbs, and coconut palm are minimal space classics.
