Here at Fooyoh, we cannot get enough of browsing magazines and perusing homeware websites in order to keep up-to-date with all the latest in interior design trends. However, this does tend to take up quite a lot of our time.

With so many designs and styles to choose from, you can spend ages trying to decide which trends you like and which you don’t. Well, we know that time is a commodity that’s in short supply for the majority of people. So, with this in mind, we’ve decided to help out by doing most of the hard work for you. Then, you can spend your precious free time getting down to the fun bit, which is the decorating part!

The Natural Look

We’ve noticed that wooden furniture designs seem to be dominating in terms of popularity this year. The focus is on using the highest quality wood in order to produce durable furniture; that’s as practical as it is stylish. Try and opt for furniture in deep, rich colors as this will help add a touch of warmth to your decor. If you’re a little stuck for ideas, you can always browse interior design websites for inspiration. They can help you decide which designer chairs and wooden furniture would best suit your living space.  

Add Some Sparkle and Shine

With the cold season almost well and truly upon us, we think that everybody could do with adding a little sparkle and shine to their homes. Bejeweled kitchens and ‘blinged-up’ family rooms are where it’s at in the world of interior design right now. It’s a trend that’s really fun to incorporate into your new decor scheme. You can keep it subtle, or you can really go wild with it, depending on how brave you’re feeling. Remember, if you shop wisely and don’t spend a fortune, you can always change it in time for spring if it gets too much. But we think it’s still more than worth the effort. Because a little sparkle and shine will help put a smile on your face when it’s grey and miserable outside. 


A Reminder of Summer

Now, we’ve noticed that the color turquoise seems to be pretty popular in the world of home decor, and we think we know exactly why this trend is lasting into the colder months. Its bright, eye-catching and does wonders for cheering you up when the weather isn’t up to much. But we think it’s also popular because it reminds us all of the azure ocean and vacations in the sun. For this reason, we think it’s a trend that will continue well into spring of next year. So, if you’re stuck for ideas as to what colors to use in your living space, turquoise is a good one to go for, as it’s likely to stay on trend for a good while to come.
