A home decor store owner from Florida who lives in New York said that he’s seen a rise in home decor stores.
“It’s definitely the way of the future, as more people come in and buy the stuff, and they’re buying a little bit more,” said the owner, who requested anonymity for fear of being sued by a store.
“You’ve got people like that, they want something new and they want a little more.”
He said he also sees a change in the way the public has come to terms with the concept of art.
“We used to think art was a sign of weakness, that it was something that just had to be worn or something that had to go away,” the owner said.
The owner said he’s seeing more women buying home art because they don’t want to look like the stereotypical decorators. “
Now we have more people looking at art as an extension of their personality.”

“I’m not saying that I hate decorators,” he said.
The trend toward a more sophisticated, modern style of home decor is also gaining traction among younger generations.
A 2016 survey by the Association of Independent Living found that nearly a third of millennial home owners would be willing to spend more on their homes if it meant they could make them more “attractive” to potential buyers.
