5 Influences On Today’s Interior Design Trends part 2

Cohesive Design: A Rising Trend in Interior Design

Cohesive design, characterized by a sense of harmony and flow throughout a space, is gaining major traction in the interior design world. It’s a move away from isolated, disjointed rooms and towards a unified, intentional aesthetic. This trend prioritizes creating a sense of visual and emotional connection within a home, making it feel more welcoming and inviting.

Factors Influencing Cohesive Design:

  • Desire for Comfort and Calm: After years of uncertainty and disruption, people are craving spaces that feel safe and serene. Cohesive design, with its emphasis on balance and flow, can contribute to a sense of tranquility and well-being.
  • Open Floor Plans: The rise of open floor plans has made the need for visual coherence even more apparent. Cohesive design principles help to define and connect different areas within a larger space without resorting to physical barriers.
  • Focus on Experience: Today’s homeowners are increasingly interested in creating homes that are not just functional, but also experiential. Cohesive design can play a role in this by weaving a narrative throughout the space, making it feel like a curated journey.

Examples of Cohesive Design:

  • Color Palette Repetition: Using a consistent color palette, with variations in shades and tones, throughout different rooms can create a sense of unity. For example, a calming blue might be used in the living room walls, dining room curtains, and bedroom accents.
  • Textural Harmony: Incorporating a mix of textures, like wood, woven fabrics, and metal, that complement each other can add visual interest while maintaining cohesion. This can be achieved through furniture, rugs, throws, and artwork.
  • Pattern Play: Using similar patterns or motifs in different scales and colors can create a sense of connection without being overwhelming. For example, a floral print might be used on throw pillows in one room and on wallpaper in another.
  • Architectural Elements: Repeating architectural elements like arches, exposed beams, or built-in shelving throughout the home can create a sense of visual continuity and flow.

Resources for Inspiration:

  • Instagram: Follow hashtags like #cohesivedesign, #interiordesignflow, and #homeharmony for endless inspiration.
  • Blogs: Design blogs like Apartment Therapy, Decoist, and MyDomaine offer expert tips and real-life examples of cohesive design.
  • Magazines: Interior design magazines like Elle Decor, Dwell, and House Beautiful showcase stunning examples of cohesive design in a variety of styles.
