We consult TikTok for our birth charts, mid-week dinner recipes, the latest in celebrity gossip and whatever vibe shift lay on the horizon, so it was only a matter of time before we began digging into #interiortok for our next home improvement. Sure, trends aren't the most considered approach to renovating your home, but for those in the thick of tile choices and kickboard heights, it's always nice to escape your brain and trade it in for someone else's. In the spirit of this, we trawled TikTok in search of interior trends. Below, we present 4 of the most beloved.

Maximalism

@joshandmattdesign never get sick of all this colour 😍#artist #art #interiordesign #maximalism #eclectic Sydney Chase" href="https://www.tiktok.com/music/My-apartment-is-my-main-personality-trait-7069817114722585390" target="_blank" rel="noopener">♬ My apartment is my main personality trait - Sydney Chase

Granted, this one is not for the faint of heart. So if you're attached to white walls and sofas, don't come any closer. While dubbed Maximalism, this interiors trend is slightly more specific than those who employ it lead you to believe. No, hoarding doesn't count. And it's not quite the same as clashing wallpaper and endless furnishings. To lean into this brand of maximalism, look to the colour palette and shapes of Italian architect Ettore Sottsass, Kartell, Memphis design and anything endearingly kitsch and vibrant.

 

French

@hummusbirrdWelcome to all the new people 🥰🥰🥰 hope u like apartment stuff♬ original sound - Brigette Muller

Some of us prefer New York City, others are die hard for Paris. For observers of the French interiors aesthetic it's all about white walls, wooden floors, fresh flowers and a larger-than-life gilded mirror. Emphasis on the last step. And if you're updating your apartment like Brigette Muller, she makes some good points on ceiling medallions, bronze shower attachments etc.

 

Cottagecore

@monalogue @monalogue Our cottage journey from the beginning to now. This will be our third year here. We’ve just finished saving up to renovate the bathroom so that will be next. 🏡 #cottage #homeimprovement #cottagecore #firsthome #homedecor #renovation #newhome ♬ Home - Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros

Yes, Cottagecore. Surfacing as the pandemic hit, as long as there are those of us harbouring dreams about starting our own hobby farm and in search of safer spaces, we can't see the aesthetic disappearing any time soon. Of course, Cottagecore is as much a lifestyle as an aesthetic, so if you're baking your own sourdough and have found endless uses for a muslin cloth, you're already halfway there. To ramp things up a little, we suggest introducing wicker, mismatched wood, ceramics, knitted textures, natural fibres and all kinds of home-y tchotchkes into your living space.

 

Black Home Accents

Over the last five years we've witnessed many lean into stark whiteness in their homes. If you've grown tired of this hyper-clean aesthetic, black accents is an easy way to ease out of it. It can be as simple as switching out all the metal hardware in your home for matte black styles; be it door knobs or shower heads. Or alternatively, you can capture this style with a slick of black paint on your door frames, window panes—any feature that you think could ground your space.
