Sabrina Carpenter's Skims campaign may channel 90's nostalgia, but her living room furniture signifies 2020's chicness. 

The 'Nonsense' singer shared an Instagram post in front of a red, abstract painting in her space. Behind her, a blue cabinet takes center stage in her living room. Carpenter's sidebar has a record player on top, with a box of records on her left. The living room color scheme shown is contemporary and stylish with a cozy artistic flair.

Experts believe this cool furniture color will be one of the most popular looks of 2024. 'In recent years, we've seen the rise of non-traditional neutrals across interior design trends,' says Jennifer Ebert, digital editor at Homes & Gardens. 'Instead of whites, creams, and grays, there's been a proliferation of 'new' neutrals. Though this initially brings to mind tans, beiges, and browns, cool and subtle blues, and grays can also fall into the category.'

'These shades are so visually interesting because they are at once colorful and neutral. They maintain the calm feeling of a colorless room while adding more stimulation and intrigue to a space. Blue-gray furniture is especially effective when used in an otherwise neutral room for a subtle pop.'

In Carpenter's neutral living room the blue furniture contrasts cozily with a red-toned abstract painting above the sideboard. Together, these shades warm the singer's space creating an inviting ambiance. 

Furthermore, using this colorful furniture trend to brighten a home has two purposes: Carpenter's blue chest of drawers is both aesthetic and practical. It contributes to the design and creates another method of living room storage. Aside from the records on top of the chest, we can predict that the drawers and cabinets on the piece are also full to the brim. The best design trends are functional.
