In a recent blog post, I focused on the several mores and historical episodes of mosaic art and mused on the medium’s timelessness and hustle, through an odyssey across space and back through time. Mosaic Art became a home décor trend only in the last 10 years or so. The medium has evolved into its own home interior art form. Gone are the days of simple squares and flat colors; in today’s homes, mosaics are achieving ever-increasing visual appeal.

Historically, this art form has been in a process of constant evolution and closely intertwined with the history of art and antiquity.People are becoming more interested in the art and science of mosaics. However, it’s hard to identify if it’s going to bond or disperse down in history as the next trends of bygone eras. Home decor trends come and go and suddenly, come back again. With many emerging mosaic designs, some will have a persistent power, and some will disperse with cozy breakfast nooks.Where the question remains:

How long will the trend last? Is it Timeless or Timely, and what should I expect in the coming year? All wonders worth soliciting and luckily, I prepared some answers and forecasts for you as you settle for making the right verdict.
