Collecting Memories in interior design

Within the Collecting Memories style trend, we gravitate towards recognizable products that evoke a comforting sensation. The shapes used are nostalgic and familiar. Common materials include ceramics, porcelain, artisanal weaving, enamel, wicker, zinc, and cast iron, and natural textiles like wood, cork, and leather. The patterns are calm and unimposing, occasionally alluding to nostalgic designs like weaving or braiding.

The colours in this trend are soft and harmonious. The key colours are various shades of green, combined with lilac and pink, as they embody memories, tenderness, and poetry. Flowers and plants complete this sense of comfort and reminiscence. Floral arrangements are delicate and poetic. In bouquets, each individual flower seems to carry meaning, collectively forming a beautiful poem. We also see irregularly shaped plants and plant pots, along with older plants that are intertwined with their surroundings. They give this trend a unique appearance.
