Interior Design Trend 2015::2016
Re-construct addresses a trend of our desire to simplify. Our lives are fast paced, information overloaded with infinite choices which can be quite stressful. We live in a time where we available 24/7 with instant messaging, where we forego taking the time to think slower. An antidote to this can be by creating soothing & calming spaces that are quiet. A sense of order, clarity and control which counteracts the disorder and lack of control that many people feel in their lives at the moment. This is a new minimalism which is different to the older style. It’s about paring things back without stripping everything away. It’s more softer, feminine and more well-being this time around. This trend is being influenced by many architectural projects. Ie: Lourve in Abu Dhabi – 2015 … A new type of sanctuary with ethereal qualities of light.
· Colour – white is the foundation and grey marble / concrete. Cool crystaline minty greens, formaldehyde greeny blue, amethyst and lilac, ombre’s and diffused pastels.
· Materials & Textures – milky resins, poured quality of concrete that is pitted, scratched and has an industrial quality. Concrete is a macro trend as it is weighty, yet simple and can be relied upon. Futuristic coloured glass & green friendly plastic with a coolness. Transparency, halo’s emitting from products through reflection of light.
I've interpreted this trend into a moodboard, bringing out the ethereal qualities for a bedroom. The aim is to create a cloud-like oasis away from the everyday clutter.
