Think Beyond The Trend
Embrace the cottage core trend. It would seem that the cottage core is an aesthetic that began on social media. It is wholesome, pastoral, and used around rural life. A truly cheap way to bring this particular design trend into your house is scouring online stores for some exceptional bargain buys. We bet that the last time you wanted to decorate your room pink was when you were probably around eleven years old. However, after a decade or two of being associated with tweens’ bedrooms, pink is back. There are, however, a couple of rules for mastering this candy color. The first is to avoid anything that reminds you of the color that Barbie would go for; muted and blush-toned oinks are the way to go. Keep the finish matte, anything shiny and pink, and you’re entering a six-year-old’s territory again.
A look that we’re loving is layering up a variety of textures in the same or similar colors. It is ideal if you are huge on neutrals, so no need to look for different ways to decorate your space without using too many colors. In a living room, blankets and cushions are an obvious way of doing this but in some other areas, try to bring textures with plants, prints, and adequately curated knick-knacks. You may already have had the idea to disguise a pantry behind an integrated cabinet door or integrate your refrigerator into a kitchen unit; however, have you considered concealing your whole kitchen? Yep, that is a thing now, and it has become a huge design trend worldwide of kitchen ideas this season. With living spaces becoming more compact and storage getting smarter and clean, minimalist kitchens are becoming progressively more popular. Things that once cluttered worktop, kettles, knife blocks, plug sockets can now vanish into flush cabinets and uninterrupted surfaces to make the most of all space available. Ideal for open plan kitchen diners or small kitchen design, they’re suitable for developing a streamlined look in a contemporary kitchen.
Fast fashion is a hot topic. Everyone is beginning to think more regarding where all our bags full of clothing originate from and what they are made of. And the same goes for what we purchase for our homes. The hunt for sustainable furniture and the desire to create an eco-friendly home or living space is on. The best tip to nod to this particular trend is to choose furniture made from natural materials that were sustainably sourced. Be on the lookout for furniture that’s been made locally and for items made from recycled materials. As we produce more environmentally friendly homes, we’ve become more conscious about minimizing waste by upcycling and recycling our homewares. There are plenty of great websites where you can purchase and sell second-hand home furniture.
