Neutral, neutral and neutral – that’s how the majority of today’s consumers, from Millennials to Baby Boomers, describe their home’s color palette according to a Furniture/Today survey exploring color and design trends. Additionally, the new research study posed this question: Which words best describe your home’s overall style? The word “relaxed” is the clear winner in defining home trends, with 61% of responding consumers using it. By region and generation, those living in the Midwest and members of Generation X have the most “relaxed” home décor. The word “clean” is the favorite descriptor for Millennials with six out of 10 choosing the word to describe their home style. For Generation X, “relaxed” is the most popular style, and with Baby Boomers the words “relaxed” and “functional” are tied at the top. Millennials are currently between the ages of 18 and 35; Generation X is between ages 36 and 51; and Baby Boomers are ages 52 to 70.
