Out of fashion: 20 trends
There is the concept of "fast fashion" (fast fashion), which designate clothes from the conveyor, a much more budgetary version of what is now being shown on the catwalks. It allows you to dress in the spirit of the latest trends and just as quickly goes out of fashion. Its equivalent in the world of interiors is “fast decor”: inexpensive items, “one season” items, which, however, may linger long in the interior.
Since the 1980s, "seasonal" decor has been sold in chains and large stores. When buying a plastic napkin or starfish in a square frame, the consumer behaved the same way as with fast food: quickly satisfying his hunger, he was deprived of the pleasure of collecting special items with his own history. And, as a victim of fashion, paid twice.
Anchors, ropes and shells should remain on the beach, not in your living room. Even if the house is located near the ocean, get rid of the "marine decor".
Create a beach atmosphere can be less obvious ways. Choose a seascape-inspired color palette, or add unobtrusive decorations such as corals and snags.
In the 80s everyone adored the floral print, and that means it was all over the place. In modern design floral motifs are used more thoughtfully - as accents. In the 90s and 2000s, ferns were literally seized at home, but the living room has no need to look like a greenhouse in the dinosaur era.
Lace tablecloths and napkins
Speaking of lace, especially when paired with a floral tablecloth, it should be noted that for a modern interior (even in the spirit of boho chic) it is too much. Twenty years ago, plastic lace tablecloths were laid over plastic to protect furniture. Like any imitation, this plastic luxury is better not to be allowed into today's eco-oriented interiors.
Artificial flowers and fruits
In the 90s, many artificial inflorescences and branches seemed an interesting way to decorate space. Still lifes from fake apples and grapes could then look funny, which is not to say about the dust they collected.
With the increased popularity of farm products and urban markets, they are completely unnecessary.
And the "biological" copies of plants and even in anti-trending - are good for television shows.
This style was common everywhere in the early 2000s and can be attractive in its own way. However, the main thing in today's kitchens is to create a visually easy, free space for cooking and socializing, and not to imitate Italian villas.
Banks, since the 90s, were the answer to all the small household needs. They are used as candlesticks, salad containers, soap dispensers - the list goes on. In the trendy cafes they serve cocktails. However, with the advent of a huge number of interesting handicraft goods, incl. handmade vases, banks can return to their original task - to store canned food and cereals in cabinets.
Damask or damask pattern
This pattern could be found in the 90s on anything from wallpaper to curtains. If Damascus is still in your house, try replacing it with a large print: floral or abstract (it is important that there are not many). Even in the wake of nostalgia for the past decades, he, like fur and a too bright mirror shine, is already strongly associated with the glamor and baroque of the past decades.
Regardless of whether the bürdur passes through the middle of the nursery or cuts off the upper part of the wall, this trend after the 90s is not relevant.
Plinth in color of a floor
How much effort was spent on the search for oak baseboards in tone with oak parquet! However, this decor makes even the most beautiful floor look like a trough. The floor plinth is a relative of the buazeri, which was used to cover the walls not so much for beauty as for heat in damp, poorly heated chateaux, and it is part of the wall, not the floor. Today, the gap between the floor and the wall can be camouflaged in various ways, in particular, completely abandoning the plinth. Another option is to choose flat white with minimal relief or accent black, accentuating and doorways.
Even if you are a star, it doesn’t mean that every morning you should be in the eyes of the glamor of the 90s. Today the lighting in the bathroom is more delicate and soft than the lamps attached to the mirrors.
These two calm shades were at the peak of their popularity in the USA in the 70s, when the country came to life after the Vietnam War. But now this combination of shades is perceived dim and, of course, obsolete.
In the early 2000s, we often witnessed the massive use of any one material: for example, dark granite in kitchens. Today, emphasis is placed on minimalist aesthetics with lighter materials.
The pattern of the plaid plaid from the 70s could be found not only on beds and sofas, but also on the wallpaper picture - and you could feel yourself in a checkered kaleidoscope. As in many other points in this list, the key point here is the strict minimum dosage.
Separate objects from light wood of a pine look fine - as small accents, especially in the Scandinavian interior. But not when almost everything is made of pine - from bookshelves to cabinets, as in the 80s and 90s.
Not only is it rather inconvenient to open and close them, vertical blinds are an obvious relic of the past. Invest in beautiful curtains to add room appeal.
These chairs - greetings from the 90s. Perhaps they were comfortable to eat a slice of pizza in between the couples at the university, but they should not leave the hostel. In order not to sacrifice comfort, it is better to get a comfortable, beautiful reading chair.
Lambrequins and frills
Of course, almost everything in the 80s was ruffled: from curtains to skirts. But when the window - lambrequins, and the bed - with ruffles, this is a problem. Especially when the lambrequins are the same color as the curtains, and those correspond to the furniture, you understand that they definitely hit the decade before last. And maybe a century.
Glass blocks were used to add light to the bathroom without sacrificing privacy. Now, however, the decision is not very relevant.
Embossed acoustic ceilings (popcorn ceiling) are no longer in vogue. Instead of adding surface relief, it is better to paint it in a bright color.
In the past, headboards were large, heavy, made of wood. Today, they are often more minimalist or non-existent. Canopies and canopies, on the other hand, do not lose their relevance. Quilted furniture exists for centuries, but no longer looks fashionable, as it once was. Now it looks a bit stuffy - and if you want to have a really spectacular headboard, choose a spectacular one, and not something that can merge with your mattress.
