Interior with authenticity, warmth and calmness
When taking a tour around all the interior and decoration stands at Maison & Objet, you immediately spot a common thread.
This coming season is all about finding inner peace through our surroundings. From almost every stand at the fair this is the vibe you get. There is something very informal about the compositions of the items and you get a certain feeling that everything is allowed.
As an extention to the Slow Living ideology it is clear that interior design today has the purpose of connecting us to what's most important. It's all about lowering our daily rush and live a life filled with substance and meaning.
But what is exactly creating this calming and relaxed atmosphere? When you take a closer look, we definitely see three decoration aspects that really underlines how to create a relaxed mood in your home decor.
1. Decorate an indoor botanical oasis with lots of plants
Plants are essential when it comes to creating a space for a perfect refuge.
Interior design has more and more been influenced by a biophilic wave, which describes humans innate tendency to connect with nature. This means that especially plants have been a huge trend in the last few years, but this season the volume will get even bigger. Instead of using plants as single little dots of green in your home decor, they are now more and more grouped together, which almost create an indoor oasis.
So this season you definitely want to play more with compositions of plants. And remember - everything is allowed. Whether you just want to place them together in small groups on the floor or if you want to hang them down from the ceiling.
2. Calming interior with warm colors and earthy tones
Along with the embrace of plants this season we are seeking calmness by going back to all that is nature.
It is particularly evident in this season's color palette. We see a lot of warm colors such as spruce yellow, orange and dusty red but also a lot of earthy tones which serve as the basis palette for the more outstanding colors.
So remember - this season you definitely should not worry about using colors. They will be key elements when it comes to create you own personal space.
3. Global nomadic interior with beautiful ethnic vibes
Dream yourself away to foreign skies. Finding inner peace often happens when you take a tour to see beautiful destinations around the world.
This season we are bringing more and more ethnic and exotic vibes into our homes. The Global Nomadic interior trend (also referred to as Bohemian Traveller or Artisian Textures) is continuing to find its way into our home decor. There is something very enhancing by the exotic and ethnic cultures who has a longtime tradition for exquisite crafts.
We will definitely see lots of handmade items, tactile textures with tassels and fringes, natural materials like rattan, jute and bamboo and some beautiful tribal inspired textiles. But be aware - all those items will give you some serious wanderlust!
