May 25, 2017

velvet

It’s time to throw out the age-old perception that velvet is reserved only for your grandma’s sofa! We are beginning to see this elegant and luxurious fabric being revived and becoming a firm favorite with interior designers around the world. This comeback is often associated with the great amount of uncertainty which overcame the world and traditional velvets take us back to a bygone era, evoking comfort and warmth.

Trend Alert: Dark and Moody Interiors

May 16, 2017

dark interiors

For a few seasons now, white interiors have been an industry favourite. We have been mesmerised by bright Scandi design and its vibe of purity and openness. But lately, designers seems to be dipping their brushes into inkier hues and we are starting to see some bold colors popping up, suggesting a real change in the air.

In her interview with Dezeen, Swedish high-profile designer, Lotta Agaton, said that the current political situation in the world is the reason behind this change in preferences. “During recent years of stability and safety, we have had bright white spaces that are open for exposure. But in darker times when the political and economic climate gets more uncertain, you want to nest a little bit. We have more cosy environments with dark walls that feel embracing. It’s like with winter and spring, but in a larger way.

Interior Trends: Pink and Green Love Affair

May 9, 2017

color trends

We are going to devote this week to colors that took over the world of interior design this, as well as last year – pink and green. Also, we are going to show you how these colors would look if combined together in a single room. The unusual couple stole our hearts in a heartbeat, so we had to play with it in our mood board creator. Keep reading and you will discover what we came up with.

As you may already know, one of last year’s Pantone colors of the year was Rose Quartz. Although it seemed that implementing this sweet and sensitive hue in interiors is going to be a bold move, it turned out that the whole world went crazy over it. Overnight, it became such a buzz word and a must have in the field of interior design. It was popping up everywhere and it seemed that the whole Pinterest was turning pink. However, this year’s Pantone color of the year, Greenery, isn’t even nearly successful in charming the designers as its predecessor. The vibrant shade is, in most cases, too heavy and overwhelming, so it takes some serious knowledge and guts to implement it in more than accents. What it did is make us think about it and aimed the industry in the direction of color green.

As we entered the 21st century, cars and appliances aren’t the only things that have rapidly started jumping into the “green” realm!

April 22, 2017

The Key to Every Good Interior Design

Have you ever asked yourself what is the first thing that strikes you when you enter a room that is just perfectly designed? Well, it’s obviously the gorgeous color scheme, the fabulous furniture, charming decoration, but believe it or not, consciously or subconsciously, it’s also a room’s symmetry. But why is that?

Secondly, symmetry is all around us, from the arrangement of branches on a tree to our own bodies, therefore our brains are used to it.

Because balance is a fundamental design principle it doesn’t bypass any style out there whether it’s Mid-century modern, Industrial, Scandinavian or Bohemian.  No room would be complete without a certain amount of symmetry.

Escapism at Its Finest – Create a Stunning Outdoor Sanctuary

April 14, 2017

patio furniture

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.

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.

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.
