Florida Interior Design Trends to Try Right Now

When the new year rolls around, it’s not unusual to look around and think your home needs a little refresh.

If you’re thinking about changing up your interior design, you’re probably also looking for inspiration. Interior-design trends are always going in and out of style, so it can be challenging to know which ones to try. We’ve rounded up our best Florida design ideas to bring you the trends we think will stand the test of time.

Wicker and Rattan Furniture That Highlight Natural Materials

Slowly gaining steam in the past few years, wicker, rattan, and other woven furniture styles will continue to gain popularity. Natural materials are having a moment, and wicker and rattan are being used to add lightness, texture, and warmth to home dècor.

You’ll be seeing it on everything from bed frames to drink holders.

Wicker Bench

Try it out: Pick a rattan or wicker accent piece or accessory that you love, such as a wicker bench in the dining room, and go from there.

Clearly Defined Areas That Give You Some Space

Houses with defined spaces are growing in demand, as people are increasingly interested in closing up those wide-open spaces that used to be desirable. Open-concept isn’t completely gone, but its popularity is waning.

People are looking for cozy shared spaces as well as ones that include areas that let them have space for themselves. The confines created by the pandemic are demanding families to have the ability to gather and isolate interchangeably.

Console Table

Try it out: Create different spaces within an open floor plan so that you have pockets or nooks for conversations, lounging, exercising, and more. Pull up a console table behind a sofa to make a separate zone.

Multi-Season Spaces That Expand Your Living Area

Patios, decks, and screened-in porches are a Florida staple, and turning them into multi-season spaces is a rising trend. This means decorating and furnishing them as if they were an additional room in your home.

Outdoor kitchens are becoming more popular than ever, so if you haven’t installed one yet, now is the time to do so.

Outdoor Sofa

Try it out: Your outdoor kitchen can be as simple as a dining area and a grill or as fancy as you want it to be. Make it comfortable for lounging with an outdoor sofa, table, and chairs.

Cozy Layers That Bring Comfort Vibes

Traditional styles are trending, probably because of the cozy vibes they bring into a space. This means natural wood and warm color are taking the place of blues and grays. And instead of minimalism, expect to see color and personality come into play.

Paneled Bed

Try it out: Pile on the pillows and throw in warm, popping colors, and don’t be afraid to mix prints such as florals and stripes for a casual, layered aesthetic.

Ground the space with a transitional paneled bed with a beautiful natural grain for a timeless look and feel.

Retro Furniture and Color Palettes

In addition to comfort in the present, many seek comfort in the past, making nostalgic furniture and color palettes a rising trend. Expect to see traditional, curvy furniture pieces that are throwbacks to the '80s and '90s, as well as colors such as mauve, burnt orange, and forest green.

Try it out: The easiest way to try this trend is with an area rug or quick coat of paint. Don't go overboard until you feel comfortable - this trend may be as temporary as it once was.
