Style trend 1: Fresh Start
After the corona crisis, it feels like we are getting a second chance in the field of sustainability, climate solutions and decluttering. A new, fresh start! And because many people work from home now, there is more focus on the design of our living and outdoor spaces. Our house has multiple functions these days, so the interior must be easy to transform. Room screens and multifunctional walls are ideal for this. Foliage plants, variegated leaves and air-purifying plants provide a healthy indoor space and a fresh look and are also easy to move.
The basis of style trend Fresh Start is white, combined with various naturals. The accent colours, such as green, blue and red tones, are reflected in flowers and plants and indicate the multifunctionality of furniture. If there are any patterns, they are based on natural structures, such as marble designs. The materials used are biobased, recycled or recyclable. Think of leather, cotton and cork and of new materials such as plastic based on algae and mycelium, a self-growing fungus.
Style trend 2: Bright and Breezy
There is a need for connection, equality, a shared reality, selfless behavior and inclusivity. After the stressful corona period, we are looking at connecting leaders who take away our worries so that we can enjoy again, without worrying. And we do that in a cheerfully coloured interior. Uncomplicated designs with checks, stripes or images of fruit enhance the festive feeling. The icing on the cake is the green happiness: flowers and flowering plants give the interior that last bit of positive energy.
The colour card within the Bright and Breezy style trend consists of cheerful and powerful pastel shades, such as pink, blue, mint green and soft orange, interspersed with brighter accents. Coral red plays a fresh and soothing role and is important for both flowers and plants. As expected, the shapes used are cheerful, festive and a bit stubborn. This also applies to the designs within this style trend. Ceramic, coloured glass, practical plastic, textile, raffia and granito are materials that fit perfectly within Bright and Breezy.
Style trend 3: Traditional Sentiment
Not everyone is ready for change. Conservative people seek safety in conservative behavior, control, and traditions. Within this trend, it’s important to restore trust and ensure that the known, local and familiar also have a place in this changing world. Interiors within this trend are therefore warm, rich in colour and nostalgic with a twist by mixing vintage and old. Old-fashioned flowering plants fit in perfectly here, as do plant collections of different cultivars within one species. Bouquets are also subtly arranged with a lot of attention and appreciation for each individual product.
The colour palette within this style trend consists of soft, greyish pastel shades such as nude, lilac and pink. On the other hand, there are rich and dark colours with a reassuring character, such as burgundy red, ocher and olive green. This creates a surprising combination of well-known and innovative elements. In terms of designs, we see (block) diamond variants in a new jacket. Materials used are ceramics, cut coloured glass, velvet, wool, cane webbing, dark woods, natural stone and marble.
Style trend 4: Wellness Bubble
With zest for life, creativity and humor we keep our spirits up. We find our appearance less important, we prefer to put energy into our mental health. Hobbies and entertainment are given plenty of space, as is wellness. We prefer to turn our house into a super-deluxe spa. The combination of soft tones with transparent materials and round shapes are reminiscent of water. That helps us relax. The flowers and plants have a fresh appearance, like the leaf of an Aloe Vera. Dyed leaves, plumes, grasses and dried flowers are combined with fresh cut flowers.
The colour chart of style trend Wellness Bubble consists of bright pastels and pastel neon shades. Think pink and yellow tones, flanked by pastel green and lilac. The colours are often applied to transparent or semi-transparent surfaces, creating a watery effect. Round shapes and designs based on stain and water patterns are central. We also see faded tropical designs in bright colours. The materials used are: coloured glass, high-gloss ceramic, reflective material, transparent textile, semi-transparent foil, paper, glass or plastic.
