DESIGNING FOR THE FUTURE : TRENDS WE NEED TO CONSIDER NOW
How to forecast trends in the design field? It’s a tough question I know , we need to consider so many factors , I can’t even count ! If I have to be honest after a bit of research and a lot of thoughts I came out with keyword that contains my idea : STRONG CONTRASTS .
In my opinion , interior decor and Fashion go hand in hand ,in both fields we can find STRONG ELEMENTS IN CONTRAST ,with a focus on :
Exotic Touch and Graphic Art
The purpose of Vintage in interior design is to create a sense of charm and history using the impact that furniture style provides to the room . Starting from Fashion Design Passing by Accessories ending with Interiors, it’s not difficult to notice that the vintage touch is a guarantee of success . By adding antiquity,second -hand objects , (even better flea market finds ! ) you can develop a vintage atmosphere, cool in every form you look at it!
CONSIDER VINTAGE PENDANT LIGHTS
Probably due the huge impact of Ikea and Flying Tiger worldwide , the Scandinavian style will be the coolest and stylish way to decor our tiny apartments . It’s smart ,urban and voguish ! Use , Scandinavian blue, cactus and succulents , tents and slatted walls , and you won’t be wrong!
CONSIDER SCANDINAVIAN CHAIRS & TABLES
Adding smart solutions to our everyday objects , To own smart home devices , it’s not even a trend , it’s already a must today . Our Shelves , chairs , tables , couches and beds , better have another function !In modern design, there are very few limits and borders , this rule applies also to decor , DIY homemade decor is an eccentric way to recycle items , Are your kids grown up ? Don’t throw away their toys, use them as a nifty element of decor ! Also don’t forget about Room Dividers..
CONSIDER SHINY METALLIC PAINT
Marble and Wood , velvet and steel , smooth concrete and raw granite ,shining brass and satin gold ,mix materials of which art objects, wallpaper, ceramics, lamps are composed by combining them , as long as there is contrast you are allowed to do it. Our society is getting more and more consumerist , one of the few good aspect of that, is the possibility to find any sort of items from cheap to really expensive , giving us the chance to use our creativity .
CONSIDER MARBLE AND GEOMETRIC OBJECTS
Colors are the main topic of the future trends in design . Starting from fashion/beauty field offering easy home made Pastel tones for your hair ( think about L’Oreal Colorista for instance ) , the fashion scene lays the first stone for furniture design ,mostly if you talk about colors and textures, the idea of the bright , brilliant strong color is getting ordinary . Create an eye-catching statement , using a playful pastel girlie room ,or a vibrant a single colorful piece of decor inside your room can change and spin the whole aesthetic and mood of any room.
CONSIDER BOLD COLORS
EXOTIC TOUCH & GRAPHIC ART
Once you provided your space with a little vintage charm , a touch of Scandinavian style with functional furniture , a strong opposition of materials and a game of colors you can choose the final touch adding exotic leaves and Graphic Art .
Leaves can work so well if they keep their bright natural green but also in a shiny metallic shine , ( so cool that you can easily find people with leaves tattoos )!
CONSIDER GRAPHIC AS DECOR
