Every day, trends are slightly changing. Out in the streets, fashion trends rotate and change each other quite often, while in other areas trends ‘rotate’ much slower, but nonetheless rotate. One of these spheres is interior décor. It’s very relevant to millions of people every year because a lot of individuals are either renovating, building or buying a new home. Knowing what’s chic and trendy can help design a tasteful and beautiful interior. Here are three trends that are worth keeping an eye on!
The world is as ever, hooked on sustainability and renewable materials. Things like recycled glass, plastic and whatever else that is labelled as environment or eco-friendly has tremendous gravity and attracts many people.
People are often leaning towards a lifestyle that suits their emotional and ethical needs. This is why you see more and more eco-friendly furniture, more economic appliances, renewed textiles, etc.
Shou Sugi Ban wood is a Japanese name for burnt wood. It means and describes a particular sort of timber that has been treated with fire. Treatment with flames protects the wood from moisture, makes it flameproof and also pestproof. Besides, burnt wood looks a lot more premium and should last longer (if properly taken care of) than regular lumber.
What is more, it can be easily adapted to both exterior and interior locations. We’ve found a company – Degmeda. On their site, the company describe the manufacturing process and have an extensive gallery. For example, you can look at shou sugi ban sidings at this website.
For a long time, monotone and single-coloured textiles were the bomb. However, 2019 and 2020 has seen a lot more patterns in décor catalogues. If you’re looking to buy bed sheets, a pillow, a rug/mat or even a shower curtain, than a unit with patterns is definitely the trendy route to go.
Religious iconography has existed as long as design itself. From Christian home decor in the home to meditation rooms and prayer chambers, religion is deeply rooted in our interior space. In Orthodox Judaism for example, washing hands before making a meal is an important tradition. This custom has been incorporated in the design of homes with one sink exclusively for hand-washing and another to do dishes or other household tasks.
