Getting more sleep, reading, practicing yoga, meditating, decreasing stress and screen time are becoming increasingly sought after. Not everyone has a second room to dedicate to these activities. Bedrooms are becoming sanctuaries with luxurious textiles for bedding, black out curtains, mood lighting and elimination of electronics. En-suites will continue to increase in demand and the bathroom will become a haven for relaxation practices.
Natural earth tones and more plants please. Not only are they timeless, they make us feel connected to nature which gives us a feeling of being grounded. Green is especially going to be popular in the new year as well as warm neutrals and other subdued colors found in nature. Organic curves are also becoming increasingly popular in design. You will see this in sofas, tables, lighting and accent pieces.
Vintage has been making a comeback and increasing in popularity. When it comes to homeware, especially that of the 60’s and 70’s is sought after. We can personally attest to this as our collection of vintage kitchenware sold off almost immediately! Vintage pieces are not only a sustainable option, they are incredibly unique, tell a story and bring in a nostalgic feel.
More and more people are starting to gain awareness of our choices as consumers and its effect on the planet due to global warming, the extinction of animal species and the well-being of workers. This is something that isn’t easy or necessarily affordable to practice but it’s absolutely necessary to stand together and demand change from corporate companies that are collectively destroying our world. Trends are typically not something we play by but this is more than a trend, it’s positive change.
Lighting has become more than just functional, in fact it’s become art. We are seeing more and more statement lighting, some of which is vintage!
The kitchen is undoubtedly the heart of the home. It’s where we aim to nourish our bodies, get creative with baking, entertain family and friends, hang out to do work and so much more. White will always be a classic but homeowners are pushing boundaries and more open to color, dark neutrals and wood tones. We are here for slab cabinetry, natural wood and stone as well as earth tones that will remain timeless. Nature will forever be in style and so will impeccable design.
