2019: CURVES IN ALL THE RIGHT PLACES

2019 is well under way and I decided to take stock of what’s trending in the world of interiors. This year is all about the curves, sun-burned corals, whimsical prints, luxe finishes and so much more! Is it just me or does every year get more and more exciting with so many amazing options out there?..

1. LIVING CORAL

Millenial pink may be out, but there are other pinky hues to take its’ place. Taking inspiration from the vibrant coral reefs, sun-baked reds, pinks and oranges are the new exciting go-to’s.

“In reaction to the onslaught of digital technology and social media increasingly embedding into daily life, we are seeking authentic and immersive experiences that enable connection and intimacy. Sociable and spirited, the engaging nature of PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity. Symbolizing our innate need for optimism and joyful pursuits, PANTONE 16-1546 Living Coral embodies our desire for playful expression.”   Pantone

10. WABI SABI

Almost in contrast to the previous Modern Luxe trend, wabi sabi movement in interiors is also going strong. Wabi sabi is a Japanese term referring to the concept of finding beauty in imperfection.

WABI = living with humility and simplicity, being one with nature

SABI = accepting “as is”, flaws and all

In the context of interior design, wabi sabi is all about embracing authenticity, natural lifecycle of things, which includes a weathered and lived in look, archieving harmony and peace in simplicity and imperfection.
