Welcome style home
With the arrival of autumn, we bundle ourselves up in chunky knits and head indoors and begin to look back into the past for inspiration for the future. Nostalgic interior design elements like plush velvet and art deco details have been making a strong comeback, not to mention back-to-nature touches like untreated wood, linens and of course, botanical elements everywhere.
To inspire us to make quick, but transformative updates to our living space this season, we interviewed some inspiring people in our community about interior trends they're currently falling for and how they use flowers to complement their home’s style. After all, flowers are more than decoration. They are integral to our interior design.
Interior design trend 1.
Neutrals with a pop of colour
We’re seeing a wave in popularity of pared-back colour schemes in homes. With rooms and furnishings in different shades and textures of the same neutral tones like earthy cream or calming grey. By following a ‘less is more’ philosophy to your interior, don’t over clutter and complement a neutral space with statement lighting and a rich accent colour — flowers are wonderful for this.
We spoke to the neutral home enthusiast, @interior_by_maggi , to see how flowers enhance her most lived-in room. “Flowers complement my home's neutral colour scheme and add warmth and energy — almost as much as my two kids!”
Interior design trend 2.
Scandi-chic seems to show no sign of slowing in our home, but the timeless minimalistic design is evolving to incorporate cosier, more livable elements like cushy textures and warmer colours. The trend is to limit your colour palette to a few select colours and let the shapes and silhouettes do the talking!
Interior trends come and go but some, like minimalism and flowers, are timeless. We spoke to @le.lolie about she marries her love for both trends in her home. “Flowers bring fresh colour into my minimalistic space, and I love how botanical elements become the eye-catcher in the room.”
Interior design trend 3.
With Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2019 being Living Coral — described as an animating and life-affirming shade of orange with a golden undertone — it’s no wonder that mellow, yet mood-boosting pastels are enlivening our homes. And, the best part is, flowers go perfectly with warming, chalky hues.
Pastel partisan @ Kimsaar says she gets a smile on her face every time she walks by the flowers in her dreamy pastel living room. Her tip for enhancing your home decor with flowers? “Experiment with a variety of colours and flower sorts. You can instantly give your interior a totally different look and feel with different flower arrangements.”
Interior design trend 4.
There is a desire in many of us to connect back with nature in this digital age, and that is especially true for our homes — our sanctuaries. This is being reflected in raw and unfinished material featuring in our interior design that often has an environmental angle. Well-made pieces with an organic feel will stand the test of time.
If the finishing touch to any space is flowers, @die_gruenke is ok with that! She believes flowers radiate positivity and link interiors authentically back to nature. And are especially powerful when placed somewhere unexpected, like the bathroom or by the bed. On how to get back-to-nature in your own interior, she says, “Nudes and greens are on-trend right now. Mix them with light wood, linen — and lots and lots of flowers, of course!"
