Discover how to select rad 90s-inspired furniture and décor to bring your home back to the grunge era.
90s features you won’t forget!
In the past century, most decades have an easily defined style. When you think of the 1940s, you think of clean lines and wholesome cottages. For the 1970s, macramé plant holders, orange mixed with brown, and bean bag chairs come to mind. However, after exiting the bold heart-shaped hot tubs of the 80s, the 90s were left with a broad mix of home decor styles to choose from.
Standard features in 90s-style home decor included large blocks of primary colours or minimalistic white or beige walls and furniture mixed with elaborate faux house plants.
Another typical 90s look highlighted busy shabby chic floral prints mixed with cute thrift store finds. You also never had to go far to come across warm pine kitchen cabinets and shelving blended with ceramic rooster decorations and art to create a humble, homey country farmhouse feel.
As opposed to many 90s styles, Zen minimalist decor ignored patterns in exchange for clean neutral-toned walls, furniture and decorations with the odd potted plant mixed in.
Modern 90s-style home decor trends include fun inflatable furniture and accent chairs with rounded corners or textured fabrics in bold primary colours. Watercolour feature walls are a contemporary twist on the classic 90s sponge-painted walls.
For a warm 90s atmosphere, incorporate brown or wooden-framed entertainment and fireplaces into living areas. Instead of using faux plants and floral arrangements, choose real potted plants and bouquets.
