10 Most Popular Interior Design Styles to Know Now | Architectural Digest

When you think of Bauhaus-style furniture, the first things that probably come to mind are sundry armchairs made of tubular steel and black leather. And indeed, the Barcelona Chair by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and the Wassily Chair by Marcel Breuer (both available today through Knoll International) are the most famous designs from the Bauhaus era and great additions to have today.

However, for a modern Bauhaus, don’t feel restricted to a neutral color palette of just black, white, and gray, but consider incorporating primary colors too. Even patterns are allowed when decorating, if they are composed of simple, geometric shapes. For Bauhaus followers, the form always follows function, so unnecessary flourishes should be avoided. A great advantage of this straightforward, simple design is its timeless appeal. Even after a century, it can still look fresh and online.

Margot Robbie’s ‘Barbie’ fuels ‘Barbiecore’ interior design trend

Today’s homeowners are building out real-life Barbie Dreamhouses — and not the plastic kind.

The new “Barbiecore” trend officially has hit interior design since making a recent appearance in celebrity fashion and pop culture.

As the public anticipates the upcoming 2023 “Barbie” movie — and the iconic Barbie Dreamhouse marks 60 years — the “Barbiecore” movement has made its way into home decor, according to a National Association of Realtors blog.

Blog writer Melissa Dittman Tracey, a contributor to Realtor Magazine, wrote about the aesthetic and how it features playful designs, lots of color and everything pink.

Tracey offered a few design tips for anyone interested in trying the trend at home.

Instead of Barbie’s signature bubblegum pink, she said, homeowners are opting for a more subdued, blush tone for their accent walls and furniture.

From worst home to best on the block: earthy colors were key

It’s been quite some turnaround for this family home. Originally dubbed ‘the worst home on the best block’ of a prestigious NYC Suburb by the homeowners themselves, it is now truly one of the world’s best homes.

Following a major redesign and reworking of the internal layout, the house is unrecognizable from the tired 1950s home the family bought early in 2020. They had real vision for the property, and knew that they would be able to take it down to the studs and rebuild their forever home with a little help from some interior design professionals.

Cue the Long Island-based Danielle Rose Design Co (opens in new tab), whose founder and lead designer Danielle Chiprut was enlisted to help improve the functionality of the home. Danielle explains that the aim of the rebuild was to add the square footage needed for a growing family. ‘We added a
