Top 5 Trends in Home Decor and Interior Design


Hiii! It’s another amazing week and I am glad to be back here to keep you up to date on the latest trends, one of which I started noticing sometime last year. It is about people, especially students going all out to decorate and give their rooms a certain aesthetic that I haven’t seen before.

I admire how creative these Gen Z’s are because during my time in school, my room had just a bed foam, a reading table, a chair, and a faulty bulb. Now, all I see is students going all out to personalize their rooms and make it extremely beautiful.

This trend inspired me to spill tea on some trendy interior décor people are ordering daily on Jumia. Whether you’re in the heart of Lagos or chilling up north in Kaduna, these are some home designs  that will take your living space from Zero to 1000. Oya grab your spicy jollof and let’s dive in.

1. Afrocentric Designs

Some of us grew up around this type of home decors and you know how they say culture never dies. Well, the Afrocentric style of interior décor is back and if you are a lover of cultural arts then this is right up your alley. Think vibrant Ankara prints as throw pillows, traditional sculpted art, and those beautiful woven baskets that double up as storage and décor. The dream setting of a rooted African.

2. Lights & Aesthetics

If you are someone that spends time on tiktok like me, then you must have come across those cute DIY videos of people decorating their rooms with glow stickers. Imagine stars shining inside your room at night or maybe just vintage posters with colors that make your room pop. Omo! It’s giving dreamy, it’s giving affordable luxury, it’s giving rich kids. 

3. Mix and Match

Remember the days of pingin gowns and skirts? Where only one shirt would have about 4 colors and some how look good? We’re back to that era but this time for interior décor.  A splash of color here has never hurt anyone. So don’t be afraid to mix and match patterns, colors, and styles. One easy way to achieve this is with throw pillows. You can have them in various colors and put them on a couch that is a different color. Go all out, we love the boldness!

4. Ecofriendly Decors

The first time I heard of the word “plant mum ”, I cannot lie, I was impressed by how “boogie” it sounded. It’s a term lovers of plant use to describe themselves when they have a plant they are taking care of in their homes. These days, 8 out of 10 houses now have an indoor plant for décor. Aside that these plants are doing a great job of keeping the house beautiful, they are also keeping Mama Earth happy. It’s a win-win for everybody. If you do not have the time to take care of actual plants, there are some artificial plant look-alike that serve the job of keeping the home as beautiful. You will surely love them!

5. Minimalist Designs

I know many of us love the gold and shiny chair and bed frames, I mean, how will our enemies know we have money? But there is a new cool in town many people are now getting into and it is the minimalist style. People now love to give a soft touch to their homes by using minimalist colors like white, grey, cream and beautiful marble wallpapers to keep their homes very beautiful, yet simple. Some home owners take it a notch further by adding a few Afrocentric art pieces. Whew! What a beaut!
