The process of buying a house is one of the most exciting times for an individual. Walking the halls of luxury houses, exploring every room and envisioning how they could be designed can truly inspire ones creative muscles to flex.

Yes, the actual layouts and accents of houses themselves are highly important, think – infinity pools, double crown molding lined walls, or even spiral staircases. However, what you do with your space in terms of décor is what can truly make a house feel like a home.


Here are the top interior design trends we’ve been seeing in spades lately:


Natural Elements

In our metropolis, Torontonians have found the salve to balance out the urban influence of the cityscape. Increasingly, people are decorating their homes with natural elements to bring a slice of nature into the mix.

Far from merely placing large potted plants in corners and striking bouquets on dinner tables, homeowners have been using nature-themed objects to decorate, such as:

  • Artistically framed floral prints
  • Fabric patterns
  • Ceramics
  • Dried foliage and flowers, framed or in vases
  • Rocks and stones
  • Exposed wood


Modern Vintage

Don’t fret; we’re not talking dusty antiques. Modern vintage is a crisp, opulent, and eclectic style of design that will make any home stand out from the rest for only the finest reasons.

There are plenty of high-end curated vintage shops that sell everything from bold lighting to re-furbished classic furniture pieces. It is within them that you can truly explore the top design styles of many generations, and find unique pieces that will truly be met with appreciation by your houseguests.



While pops of vibrant colour are certainly popular amongst some crowds, we’ve been seeing monochrome around every corner this year! Minimalists will rejoice in knowing that their highly curated and sleek design ideas are still in demand.

Monochrome rooms, commonly offices, where every object is in a different shade of the same colour are highly sophisticated and simply stunning. If you’re considering going the monochrome route, be sure to explore various textures that you can implement into your space to make it truly stand out.
