As we entered the 21st century, cars and appliances aren’t the only things that have rapidly started jumping into the “green” realm! Entire homes have been following this trend with the same pace by introducing solar panels, tankless water heaters and double-paned glass. However, more recently, aesthetics jumped on the  ”green” waggon too as more and more interior designers seem to be turning to Mother Nature for inspiration, so now, choosing eco-friendly options for the interior doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice on the aesthetic front.

With these tips, you won’t just be taking the beauty of your home into consideration but also your well-being.

Escapism at Its Finest – Create a Stunning Outdoor Sanctuary

April 14, 2017

Once the clock strikes 5 pm on Friday afternoon, we say – no more. No more tasks, no more meetings, no more stress; all we’re left to do now is survive the rush hour and arrive home, drop our keys on the hallway cabinet, take off our shoes, get into our cozy crocks and hit the back door to get to our heavenly sanctuary, where we’ll forget all about the troubles of our everyday lives (at least for two days, that is).

But can you truly recharge your batteries while there’s no comfortable furniture to throw yourself onto; when the rakes and other gardening tools are just laying around; or without ambient light to warm up the evening atmosphere? No, you most certainly cannot.

Although it’s been around for hundreds of years, the equestrian style still ranks high on the trend radar. When it comes to fashion, people are drawn to the clean and dignified lines of its clothing, always flattering and timelessly classic. Many luxury labels (Hermès, Gucci, Ralph Lauren) are jumping on the trend-wagon resulting in a worldwide rise in sales. Horse-inspired items are conquering hearts and closets of many, establishing the equestrian lifestyle.

But the renaissance in classic equestrian chic didn’t hit only the fashion industry. Horses are making a big comeback in the home interiors as well. Horses have always been the symbol of power and wealth, reminding us of British aristocrats, a tradition of hunting and horse racing.

Dying Over Ethnic Rugs

March 23, 2017

ethnic rugs

Characterized by unique textural and color combinations and abundance of organic materials, eclectic collector home style crosses the boundaries of culture, geography, and design epochs. Creativity is integral to luxe bohemian décor: for eclectic-minded designers, stylistic conventions are more of a broad signpost than a set of unbending rules, and the main focus of decorating attention is shifted to the eccentric, the reinterpreted, and the re-imagined. From ground up, homes styled following in global traveler’s footprints exude originality, buoyancy, and inimitable charisma that comes from ingenious amalgamation of elements. For this reason, rugs used to achieve the recognizable luxury bohemian look often feature ethnic prints, or are crafted from natural materials, or even tastefully layered for increased aesthetic value.

Muted Colors – In the Spotlight

February 14, 2017

Interior trends change fast, it’s hard to keep up! But every interior designer (or enthusiast) on the hunt for inspiration can spot the trend while in its roots. One of them that is having a major moment are muted colors. Last year was all about Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue, but it seems like 2017 is going to be even more stained in subdued shades!

What are muted colors? When you mute sound, you make it quieter. Same goes for the colors. When you mute the color, you reduce its vibrancy, it becomes faded, quieter and partially desaturated. Plain blue ends up being dusky or deep sea blue, green becomes earthly green or olive, yellow transforms into dusted yellow etc. If you want a more subtle color presence in the interior of your home, opting for muted colors is the way to go. They will give you the freedom to play around with other shades, add patterns and texture, making your decorating choices almost endless. Let’s take a glimpse at some of the muted hues’ hidden powers.
