Abbie our Junior Interior Designer spent a couple of days out the office to explore what London has to offer and to discover all the upcoming design trends!
From visiting art galleries and exhibitions to restaurants and hotels, Abbie was filled with inspiration and has collated some of the trends we’re going to see much more of very soon below:
- Japandi Design
This trend is a hybrid of Japanese and Scandinavian design – bringing together the best of both worlds. Japanese design is characterised by rich tones and simplicity, whereas Scandinavian design practices neutral hues and natural woods. Both share a similar principle – minimalism which helps to fuse these designs together. The left image shows some of the luxurious ‘Japandi’ textiles at Klaus Haapaniemi & Co.
This trend we cannot seem to get enough of! From living walls to indoor trees, London was full of greenery. We believe this trend will go even further and bring outdoor furniture inside, think wicker dining chairs and maybe even indoor gazebos – who knows! The middle image was taken in the very green ‘Greenhouse’ room at Bourne and Hollingsworth Buildings.
Tonnes of reclaimed furniture was spotted in London. Not only does it make an interior unique, but also adds lots of character to a space. Vintage fringing, velvet and terrazzo are all set to be huge, adding lots of texture and depth to a space with an Art Deco flair. The right image shows just a few of the amazing vintage inspired prints at House of Hackney.
With all this in mind, we are keen to use and develop on these trends with our upcoming projects – watch this space!
