Being the foundation of the world, aesthetics not only makes things beautiful, but also awakes and stimulates all our senses. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to have an opportunity to maintain a favorable environment to spend our days in. Apparently, every new year comes with new fashion trends, but where do trend predictions and reality meet in 2019?
Materials are part of the building blocks of design and what makes any design popular, is the material it is made of. Following 2018 where the technology prevailed, this year more natural influences take over, i.e. natural elements such as marble, granite, copper, concrete, dark wood and natural aromas. Surely the trend goes a lot beyond wooden chairs and glass tables.
Patterns are also a primal cry to nature. Patterns are filled with floral elements presented in a new light but on the same level of softness and nothing stands out for a single purpose - visual balance. Ordinary furniture acts as an empty canvas for patterned pillows, whereas white boards and a coffee table work the same way for terracotta flooring.
In absolute contrast to natural softness, geometric patterns “raise on stage" again but this time they are not a new trend and are not surprising to anyone. An easy way to include them in your home are geometric accents like decorative pillows and blankets.
More than ever our society is now focused on health and well-being. According to Pinterest, searches for "vertical gardens" have increased by +287% compared to last year, which speaks by itself about the rise of interior landscaping.
Our direct connection to nature is also important, even in indoor spaces. We have learned to express it mostly and openly when out of town, but it is now easier than ever to move it to our homes and offices. There are few focuses and they all fall on the interior landscaping with a function, air purification and plants that require little care.
Interior landscaping with a function combines the original purpose and the plant, such as an office desk with a built-in plant - the functionality of the desk is preserved, yet the visual environment is more enjoyable and relaxed.
