Remember those days when life was slow and oh so mellow, when people didn’t walk around with heads deep down into their mobile phones, when you could hear birds chirp, feel a cool breeze tousling your hair, when you didn’t have to push your way through a crowd because there was space for everyone’s personal bubble, when QC to the domestic airport took only 20 minutes by taxi via an EDSA that was a highway and not a parking lot, when neighborhood kids got together to bike, play ball, climb trees…

Well, that’s where this trend comes from…years before that and even years before that. Let’s call it the good old, days. Because that’s the thing about today’s trends. They’ve been here before and when they make a comeback, they’re usually tweaked, embellished, or combined with some other style, and voila, some influencer says we’ve got a trend.

Romantic is Back

Get Romantic With Ruffles | MyBoysen
See product information at the end of the post

Romanticism is now in the spotlight, and nothing spells romance quite like ruffles, scalloped edges and fluted glass. Nostalgia seems to drive the popularity of these design details.

Ruffles are primarily found in soft home accessories like curtains and pillowcases. Use gingham or stripes for that cottagey, cozy feel. Or, you can opt for botanicals with huge blooms to dress up your windows with.

To add texture to your space, you can opt for fluted detailing on your walls, cabinets, tables, etc. Read about it in this post.

I do love the fluted pendant lamp in the collage above. It would be nice to have a big one over a round dining table, or as lamp shades on the bedside tables. They are functional pieces wrapped in something graceful.

This gorgeous scalloped lamp can brighten up any corner too.

As you can see, the interior design trends of today are moving away from minimalism and going into maximalism. Maybe this is not so surprising considering that this is Gen Z’s favorite look.

I wrote about vintage romanticism in 2022. There are elements there that can also be used for this romantic style today.

Peach Fuzz and Berry

Pantone’s color of the year Peach Fuzz and Etsy’s Berry are perfect colors for this romantic interior style.

Both are warm colors that make a space look cozy. Peach Fuzz is softer and lighter while Berry is deep and intense. These colors are statements in themselves so make sure they do not clash with existing furniture and accessories.

Ready to explore the maximalist world? If you know how to make a mood board, try that first before implementing your ideas. We have many mood boards available in our Pinterest page.

Trends and Micro-Trends

They keep coming up, all these trends and micro-trends. I guess that shows us how different people are and how wired this world is that we are able to see what’s available out there in the big, wide world.

But as we usually say here in Let it B, don’t let that rattle you. There may be information overload only if you allow it. Know what you want first—what styles appeal to you, what colors you like, what furniture and decor pulls you in—then inform yourself about what’s available.
