Out of fashion: How yesterday’s trends evolve
The abundance of beautiful interiors in the network plays with us a cruel joke – even favorite styles are boring even earlier than it comes to repair. And although we know perfectly well that we cannot keep up with fashion, some decisions are beginning to seem so beaten up that you don’t want to look at them any more: not in pictures on blogs, much less in your own interior.
And yet: if your cute style has already experienced the peak of popularity and it seems that now it is everywhere, do not rush to give it up. Here are five examples of successful evolution.
It was: loft
It became: soft industrial
It would seem that the loft is one of the youngest and most current styles, but he is already fed up with it. At least the common places are brickwork, bare concrete …
Industrial style does not stand still, develops. His character has softened much lately, the expression “soft industrial” has entered the vocabulary of the decorators. No hardcore – rebellious factory spirit evaporated. In the lofts of the newest model – more craft, there are frequent borrowings from country styles and shebbi-chic.
The main materials are not iron and concrete, but wood, cork, steel. Instead of brick – the walls are made of vintage, beetle-eaten, as if dusty boards. Old wine boxes or their imitations also go into business. All this greatly softens the brutal industrial aesthetics, makes the loft style more suitable for houses and apartments.
Sometimes a variation of a traditional loft is called Salty loft or Salt Loft, meaning that the board was “salted” with seawater. Imagine a grizzled Russian fence, grayed out by rain and wind. Approximately this shade of wood (usually it is a gray tic) is considered correct.
For a very long time, beige color reigned infinitely in the interiors. And then naturally began to take positions. For the role of the main base color claimed gray and white. True, they were met much more cool – the gamma is too cold to be loved and popular. To many, the beige palette is still closer and more pleasant, whatever that fashion dictates.

The decorators noticed a controversial mood and found a compromise – they mixed beige with gray. A variety of shades with the common name greige (literally gray + biege) appeared. Now most experts in the field of color: from Shewin Williams, Benjamin Moore to Dulux – have dozens of gray-beige shades in their palettes and constantly add new ones.
Was: Scandinavian white
It became: scandi-boho
The favorite of the last decade, the Scandinavian style, too, did not stay aside from fashion and is undergoing metamorphosis. Only everyone has learned to love its simplicity, minimalism, how stunningly beautiful bright, thick colors burst into fashion. How to resist such a temptation! And how to stay true to the gray-white Scandinavia?
About one of the options (repaint the walls in a complex shade of green or wine, we have already written). It is still an affordable and reasonable alternative to the Scandinavian white interior.
But it turned out that decorators have another recipe for how to introduce rich colors in a neutral northern interior. This style microvariant is called scandi-boho. In it extremes came together: silence and noise, redundancy and minimalism.
It turned out that this whole merry “gypsy” with colorful ornaments, ethnic details, multi-layered color combinations, which is hidden behind the name “boho” harmonizes very well with the northern aesthetics, adds dynamics, warmth and missing emotions to it.
And, interestingly, this is the same “time-tested” style for ages: when the scandi-boho goes out of style, you can remove the bright carpet, remove the posters, and replace the colorful pillows with concise ones. The basis of the interior is the same: natural wood furniture and a lot of white.
