The Future of Interior Design

Designed by Inverse Interiors

Gone are the days of the classic rules of design. Specific styles seem to be disappearing; there is a marriage of a lot of styles into one creative space.

It is tricky to predict the future. Experts across the world struggle to determine where the world might be in fifty years time, and we analyze which shape the interior world will take for years to come.

As expected, technology is set to play a huge role in the future of interior design. But which technologies? And how might we use them?


                                                 1. Smart Home Technology

It’s 2017 and smart homes are everywhere. Barely a day goes by without one of the tech giants releasing a new gadget designed to make our homes more connected.

For any interior design, the tech is becoming a huge part of the job.  When the interior designer is incorporating design with hi-tech, the unusually harmonious look speakers, home theater, computer, office equipment and much more are included.

After all, this is the epitome of modern fashion, which simply cannot walk out of step with the progress. Therefore, the hi-tech design is ideal for housing a modern man who keeps up with the times.


The next-generation home experience grows from a home that responds to you; it’s the perfect temperature, the perfect level of light, the perfect volume, with incredible experiences in picture and sound. Home automation is the key that draws it all together, seamlessly uniting all of your home’s systems in an easy-to-use way. 

2. Sustainable Design
The trends has become a buzzword across a range of industries. From landscaping to beauty, the future for eco-friendly looks bright. For interiors where it used to have connotations of shabby chic; today eco-friendly design is entirely on trend.
This trend looks set to grow as we consider the future of interior design. Upcycling furniture, buying local and actively seeking energy-efficient materials are becoming increasingly common.
Sustainability equals minimalist.
The practice of simplifying, organizing and decluttering, offers a perspective shift from storing stuff to selecting home possessions mindfully. Moving towards a minimalism also reflects the simple, clean look that modern design aspires towards.
3. Personality Into Design

A quality design makes a statement for his owners. A quality design is one that fits the owners needs, the one that can be felt properly by the owner and attributed to him even if it`s not envisioned by him. Through this lenses, but from the other end we can see it in reverse.


Personality dictates everything indirectly, the pattern we will choose, the color we will prefer in different unknown situations, the texture that we consider fit, proper, comfortable. We know “it feels right”, we know “it fits us”.

Our personality is shaped through time and it can greatly evolve but it never changes completely, we are transforming ourselves through experiences of all kinds; we live.

4. Color Palette
Calming shades of green, purple, and taupe have topped almost every major paint brand’s color forecast for 2017. Reflecting the rapidly growing wellness industry, these soft, desaturated tones are backed up by themes of sustainability, simplistic living, spirituality, and self-improvement.
As greenery is the pantone 2017 choosed color, Leatrice Eiseman Pantone’s executive director, states that this is “The color of hopefulness and our connection to nature”.
It speaks to what we call ” re” words: regenerate, refresh, revitalize, renew.
5. Back To The Future


The design world is taking a cue from music and fashion—lyrics and clothing are stepping back in time to a 50’s and 60’s feel good era that was happy, understated and natural. This laid back way of thinking is showing up everywhere in interior designs.

Designing for the future will mean accommodating more than one generation, a growing population, and rising life expectancy while reckoning with a decrease in available space, a critical need for sustainable building practices, and ever-evolving technology.

Design has the unique ability to bring together allied professions, solve problems from multiple points of view, and put society’s well-being at the forefront. This notion of the convergence of people, place, and work, and how we think about design in the context of these things is critical to what’s next for design industry.


We would define that the future is dictated by the trends as the styling, colors, patterns, materials and shapes of a particular season that has a long-term influence on the market. A current trend can be derived from previous season’s trends and also current world affairs and events.

In the interiors market we are more focused on “macro” trends (bigger and longer lasting) than “micro” trends, which are more common in fast fashion.
