Organic Materials


Organic Materials

Nowadays the term organic has also made its way into interior design. So what exactly is meant by this so-called emerging design trend? Basically, anything made from natural materials can be considered “organic”. However, the trend goes beyond just using natural materials – entails a specific green lifestyle & design choice. In other words, there is more to the furniture, fabric & flooring in this type of home than just looking “natural”. They must be chemical-free. Some popular organic materials include hemp, reclaimed wood, sisal, natural stones and recycled glass. Let’s take a look at the top picks for your home;

Rugs:

Check out this braided beauty! The Dismuke rug is a handwoven jute and cotton rug. This weave features a tapestry of earth tones that is reminiscent of nature itself. The fact that it is handmade has a lesser impact on the environment, rather than if it was manufactured. Also, another benefit of using a natural rug is that you’ll avoid breathing the chemical particles that form when a synthetic rug is exposed to the sun.  


Poufs:
The versatile pouf has been a favorite for quite some time. Round out your space with the casually hip Dilip pouf. This piece features a cable knit cover crafted of natural jute. Its feel-good texture makes it a versatile spare seat, ottoman or end table; the perfect all-in-one eye candy.


Wall Art:
Paint a picture of easy relaxation in your space with the Odus wallart. The weathered plank-style layout features natural and black undertones, making it a very cool understatement. This charming piece will surely deck your walls with knockout style!


Now that you have the facts about natural materials not only being a highly sought after trend, but also beneficial to your health, will you opt for this green lifestyle?

Raw White


Raw White:

Believe it or not, the all-white aesthetic has made the one of the top trends in 2017. It has become difficult to escape all-white homes and décor. Whether you love it or hate it, the effects of this trend are astounding which has caused quite the controversy. Long before the contemporary trend came up with its take on raw white, beautiful Greek, Moroccan and Scandinavian interiors utilized white walls for its sense of minimalism, and contrasted with colorful textiles and artwork. Now, raw white does not only reflect wall color, but a chalky or bone white quality seen in homeaccents. The organic and raw feel of these accents are great for balancing out a really vibrant space.

Vases:
A home accent that does raw white justice is definitely a beautiful white vase. The Kaemon vase has naturally flowing swirls that have a wonderful organic feel. You can also opt for a vase that says “minimal fuss” and gives maximum impact with a clean and simple shape. The Daemyn vase can wow on its own, with its simple cylindrical shape.
Picture Frames:
Picture frames are not only a way to treasure memories via a quality framework, but it’s also a means to add style and substances to the picture. The Baback frame features a beautiful organic white with ribbed detailing that brings out quite the snappy texture. Another elegant frame is the Kaelem, as its glazed ceramic surface is buzzing with a clean vibe that is worthy of the raw white principle.

White organic throws:
Finally, another accent to complete the raw white look in your home is a delightful throw that is reminiscent of a ribbed sweater knit. The Clarence throw has a chic and classic appeal features a thick fringe that is full of texture.
The all-white trend will remain beloved for years to come, as it has already been around for quite some time. What do you think about this trend?

Muted Colors

Muted colors:

Muted colors are those which lack vibrancy or saturation. They tend to lean toward the more subdued end of the spectrum, while still creating a chic look with their subtlety. It seems that the muted colors of 2017 are mellow, but with a little more pigment than the pastel-looking hues that were in last year. In fact, the colors are perhaps more dusky in nature which emits a rich and warm feel to a space. Let’s take a look at how some of these serene and soothing colors can still manage to warm up a room.

Warm neutrals:
People have a tendency of finding new ways to bring elements from the outside into their homes with a sense of style. There is something about combining earthy colors into a space that is not only reminiscent of nature, but that creates a calm and collected atmosphere. A perfect example of these colors is taupe and a muted earthy green. Especially taupe or similar hues would be a great choice for upholstery on bedssofaschairs and even rugs! It’s a color that will remain timeless, and therefore would be a great investment when it comes to furniture.


Dusky blues:
Among the other popular muted colors this year is dusky blue and in a variety of hues. It is slightly muted and quite sophisticated and reminiscent of the beach, but without falling into a kitschy category. Although this shade of blue is far from being bold, it would still be wise to use to accessorize your home. Opt for bedding,decorative pillowsthrowsottomans, etc. These pieces entail a much smaller investment.

Gray:
Not just on the runway, but in home décor, shades of gray are the getting the attention they deserve. Grays in particular create a refined look in the home. Despite being a neutral tone, it is quite rich. Just like earthy tones, gray is equally a good choice for furniture pieces that you intend to keep for years to come. However, it has more of a modern feel to it.



What do you think about muted colors in your home? Is it something you would consider?

Quirky Light Fixtures


Quirky Lighting:

A light fixture is like an accessory for your home. It’s a great way to demonstrate your unique style and design sensibility. This year welcomes quirky lighting into the home, as it can transform a room with the use of something unusual. A light fixture does more than just lighting up your space! From cozy to unconventional, allow your light fixture to set the right mood you intended for your space. Let’s take a look at how a quirky light fixture can alter the appearance of your home.

Pendant:
Among the options of a quirky light fixture is the pendant. Delight yourself in modern minimalism with theMikndaro pendant. This striking piece features an open metal cage that brightens up a space by reflecting its beautiful shape. If you’re opting for more of an industrial twist, an Edison bulb will do the trick!




If an industrial look is not your style, then select a light fixture with more of an earthy organic style. TheAminalipendant features a gourd-shaped metal shade, which is not only simply gorgeous, but is definitely eccentric and quite different from anything modern.



Table Lamp:
Have you considered sprucing up your bedside lamps with something that would be more memorable? Then selecting an unconventional table lamp will definitely draw the attention you are looking for! The Kyron table lamp is a modern industrial lamp in a new light. It takes a different turn with its version of a glass shade, which wows even with a minimalist exposure. 



Again, if you have a tendency of straying away from a modern feel, lean towards a contemporary aesthetic to light your space. The Sharitey lamp certainly possesses a wow factor with its cutting edge design. It features a shapely ribbed base and a shade print that is loaded with texture.

Textures


Textures:

Weave some texture into your home this year. The idea of incorporating more texture stems from the intent that mixing fabrics and materials will cause your space to be more inviting. Texture is definitely on the rise. Designers are emphasizing the importance because texture is making an appearance in various forms, from metals, to fabrics and wallpapers. Test this trend by throwing a mix of fabrics used for your decorative pillows, or highlight the contrast of a leather chair by draping a wool throw. Let’s take a look at how texture can make its way into your home.

Light fixtures:
Contrary to popular belief, texture does not only apply to fabrics. Texture can also apply to beautiful warm metals like copper, brass and rose gold. Another sought after metal is the very popular industrial black or burnished tones. That being said, the color and appearance of metals can also add texture to a space. This can be achieved with a stylish lightfixture! It is just another way to show off your design sensibility.

Throws:
Who doesn’t love to nestle below a comfortable throw? Whether it’s light organic cotton, a richly textured woven acrylic, or ever so soft plush polyester, make your home more alluring with the right throw that appeals to your senses. Throws come in a variety of colors, textures and weaves. Depending on the look you are trying to achieve, the style may differ but the result is the same – your home will be more inviting.


Seating:
Last but not least, seating can also vary in texture. Whether it is diningroom seating or living roomseating, textures differ in terms of upholstery and leather. There are endless combinations, therefore choosing the right texture should be geared toward your personal style and way of life.


Since texture is appearing in almost any form, it is clear that it has become very significant in the home. Make sure to include it in your home décor choices!

Geometric Patterns


Geometric Patterns:

Geometric patterns are said to be all the rage in 2017. Although they began making an appearance in 2016, this pattern will surely be the front-runner this year. As you know art, fashion, design and beauty share common tendencies when it comes to the popularity of trends. It goes without saying that trends are cyclical, and therefore geometric patterns have reappeared because the 70s are back, but with a modern twist! Contrary to what some may think, geometrics are not strictly for modern homes, but have also made their place in a variety of different styles. Let’s take a look at how you can include geometrics in your home.

Poufs:
A really great way to accent a home with geometric patterns is with the use of poufs. Take one or a few to really dress up the space. Aside from being an accent, poufs count as multifunctional pieces because they can act as a footrest, additional seating or even a coffee table! Sounds like a great bargain!




Wall Art:
Geometric patterns have never looked better on paper. Although it’s a quite popular choice for wallpaper, some may find it too overwhelming. So how can you include this trend in a way that will not bury your walls? Wall art of course! Opt for chic framed art that uses intricate geometric patterns and hang them on a wall that can use some sprucing up. Check out the Odelia trio, which is a great organic take on modern abstract art.
Rugs:
Another fun way to include geometric patterns in your home is with a great area rug. From trellis to an alluring Moroccan design, invigorate your space with a fresh pattern that provides a rich contrast with your flooring. Whether you decide to opt for a more neutral pattern or brighter colors, either option will definitely add visual interest and depth to your space.




All in all, aim to choose geometric designs that will give your home a curated look. Each piece should be selected as though your room was carefully assembled, in order to avoid it being too overwhelming.
