5 Top Design Ideas
We subconsciously read curves as safe, comforting and inviting, and as most of us are feeling a bit precious these days, it makes sense to introduce some softer shapes into the home. Softening sharp edges and lines creates a desirable, calming feeling and we’re seeing this popular interior design trend appear in both furniture and architecture this year.
As we slowly begin to start travelling again, interior design will take on a roaming, nomadic flair. For those still unable to travel, by gathering inspiration from around the world, you can satisfy that wanderlust without ever leaving home. Adding sentimental touches to the home will always bring a sense of warmth, fond memories and interesting talking points.
Although this year’s Pantone colour of the year 2022 is Very Peri, a light shade of purple, almost all global paint companies have named a shade of sage green as their colour of the year for 2022. This colour has been well-received for a few years now; it feels safe, comforting and is the shade of growth and new beginnings. It perfectly complements the current biophilic trend in interiors. Not only is it easy to implement this organic hue in the home but psychologically, it has a mystical quality that encourages imagination and escapism. It really is the perfect tone for today’s challenges.
Lighting is no longer thought of as a practical necessity, it can create or kill the ambience of a room – remember the horrors of fluorescent lighting?! Lighting really matters. Displaying beautiful statement lighting pieces in the kitchen and dining will add flair and texture to the environment, and who doesn’t love pendant lamps in the bedroom to set the mood?
If you’d prefer to spend less time cleaning, keep an eye out for less porous materials that are unlikely to hold bacteria, especially in the kitchen and bathroom. Reduced grout lines can be achieved using our unique stone splashbacks which are always preferable to tiling. Our stone surfaces can even go straight over the top of existing tiles. Talk about convenient!
Also consider furniture fabrics that are stain-resistant. Leather and easily washable fabrics will always stand the test of time over delicate, high maintenance couch fabrics.
