Avid social media users probably remember the rise of the “visit to a luxury apartmenton TikTok in 2020. While defining the dreams of many interior design enthusiasts for their future homes, design trends on TikTok have changed a bit. The modern, minimalist home we all dream of is still trending, but a more relaxed take on this aesthetic has popped up on TikTok and right outside our windows.

In a 180 degree turn from the contemporary design trends of the 2010s, antiques have made a comeback in interior design.
Southern homes in particular seem to be at the forefront of the trend, welcoming antique furniture as centerpieces. Unlike the neutral themes and monochromatic colors that have become synonymous with luxury living, antique aesthetics typically offer extra doses of color and personality, as seen in the antique and modern flair of Sara McDaniel from Simply Southern Cottage’s residence.
In an age where uniqueness seems rarer than ever, with design choices often driven by industry leaders rather than our own tastes, antiques still manage to stand out as unique options for a home that truly you. .
@kristinascollective We are still in love with how our design for this new build turned out at Materra. The dark cabinetry, gorgeous polished stone backsplash, and killer windows and lighting make this a statement we can’t live without. What’s your favorite part of this kitchen?! #Dkitchen#kitchendesign#Iinterior design #Iousianadesigners#materrabatonrouge ♬ original sound – Kristinascollective
Dark meets light
Neutral colors will always have their day in the sun, but this year stains and darker paint colors are finally making their way into the kitchens of TikTok. In this kitchen designed by Kristina Petit of Kristina’s collective interiorsdark blue kitchen cabinets keep it cool against a white stone backdrop, white countertops and lots of natural light from tall uncovered windows.

Some interior designers have decided to put the brakes on moving too quickly into the future. Instead, they return to a design trend that made headway in the 1920s.
Curved furniture, intricate wallpaper, bold shapes and golden details are just some of the design elements that make Art Deco modern yet distinctive, and you can see it in some of the design elements used here by Rachel Cannon from Rachel Cannon Limited Interiorsfrom the starry mirror to the soft lines of the wallpaper.

As Liz Lovery, a TikTokker creating content about design trends and home renovations, predicted, plain white walls might be a thing of the past, for now, anyway. Instead, look for visual and tactile interest through brick, wood or whitewash paint, a technique that can also be linked to 2022’s penchant for vintage vibes given its prevalence in ancient Rome.

Traditional house plans
Open concept floor plans have long been popular, with living rooms blending directly into kitchens, which blend directly into dining areas. There’s nothing inherently wrong either, but if you’re one of the millions of people who have found themselves working from home over the past few years, you may have been yearning for a little more privacy, and the comfort four walls can bring.
