Today is the final day of our sneak peek series which discusses the most significant theme of them all – you! The most important part of every house is the people that make it a home. Appreciating personal taste and space is the inspiration behind our final trend in the series. This is The Natural Fit.
This trend isn’t just about natural products, it’s about how we choose pieces that fit into our homes and lifestyle. Regardless of the size of your home, don’t comprise on the things you love most. Make space for personal taste. Establish a feeling of effortless comfort, a sense of being. It’s like when a friend sees an item of clothing in a shop and says “that’s very YOU”. Make it your own!
Choose quality products that will age gracefully and consider clever design that will integrate seamlessly into your lifestyle. Small spaces don’t necessarily need to lose out; just be more practical with what you have to work with. For example, choose dining tables with integrated extension mechanisms and bed frames that include hidden storage features. Scandinavian interiors epitomise functional and refined design in a chic and stylish fashion which is good news for compact rooms.
The key to making natural materials work is to define areas and lift them with a more subtle colour. This can be applied using lighter tones like chalky blue and sandy yellow. Celebrate this with the addition of tactile furnishings to give it that cosy finishing touch.
