The Hygge trend that has been so popular for the past year is evolving into something so much more. Taking on an Eastern influence, we see a Japanese simplicity brought to the look, incorporating a "wabi-sabi" design ideal. Wabi-Sabi is the Japanese philosophy of finding beauty in imperfections. Merged with the Danish ideal of cozy, happy living and we are left with a trend that finds the harmonious balance between the two, leaving us with an elevated, urbane finish.
Glamour with a soft edge. Metallic finishes and pink-hued chaises. Highlights of amber and rose quartz. The subtle chicness of this trend combines the color of the moment in all of its gorgeous hues, with a bevy of textures, finishes and iterations to create a look that is sophisticated and delicious. Milk+honey embodies a new kind of neutral, blending the warmth of burnt umber and decadent ruby red, with the coolness of Aegean blue and jade against a pale backdrop of creams and taupes. It encapsulates glamorous simplicity and contemporary goodness.
Mixing all that is funky and cool, Bohemian Rhapsody is like taking a trip around the world and emptying your suitcase a little in each room. This trend takes a bit of tribal, a bit of Indian and Moroccan vibes and a bit of hippie-chic, bringing it all together for a look that becomes truly singular to its user. Mid-century modern pieces ground the look, as do velvet overstuffed chairs and rustic lighting...giving the end result a bohemian glow.
Conscious living is omni-present, but no longer is it esoteric and one-dimensional. Grounded in mid-century modern elements, it is warm and inviting, with a modern edge. Sustainable pieces are constructed from found objects such as wood, metal, textiles and glass. Colors are subtle, yet sunny, bringing a sense of earth goddess to your décor.
A marriage of the old with the new, the traditional with the modern, the avant-garde with the subtle, creating contrasting points of view that all seem to work together. It takes everything that you thought that you knew about design and turns it upside down. Suddenly, A Study in Contrast is born. A French Country dining table paired with Eames chairs, octagonal wood floors accented with herringbone tiles, a traditional chandelier hanging in a stark modern kitchen - the rules are that there aren't any and somehow it all works. And it is fabulous.
