Number 1 - Scandinavian Minimalism
There is no doubt that Scandinavian design has been popular in the UK for some time now, and it isn’t showing any signs of slowing down. The simplicity and functionality of Scandinavian design appeal to many in the UK, particularly those living in smaller spaces. Using natural materials, a neutral colour palette and materials such as wood and stone create a calm and clutter-free environment that promotes a stiller slower paced life. And let’s face it, we all need to slow down a bit more than we currently do.
Number 2 - Biophilic Design
With many people feeling burn out a biophilic design goes hand in hand with Scandinavian Minimalism, incorporating natural elements into interior design to create a space that encourages well-being. Using a range of natural elements such as, water and greenery you can turn any space into a calm and peaceful environment. Materials such as bamboo, cork, reclaimed wood are a brilliant way to bring nature inside.
Number 3 - Art Deco
What can we say about art deco, it’s a bit marmite but when it’s done well, it’s extremely effective. Art deco is an opulent style that features bold geometric shapes, rich colours and luxurious materials such was velvet and brass. If you love a bit of drama and indulgence in your interior art deco is definitely the way forward. All it takes is statement lighting, some mirrored surfaces and some large obnoxious graphic prints and you will be well on your way to creating a theatrical home.
Number 4 - Industrial Style
The industrial style has been going strong for some time now, incorporating the raw, unfinished look. Elements such as exposed brick walls, metal pipes and distressed wood furniture are a firm favourite for creating that classic shabby chic style, with an enormous emphasis on the shabby. It’s nothing ground breaking in terms of new trend, but if it ain’t broke…
Number 5 - Maximalism
Give us bold colours, clashing patterns, and all the textures known to man and you’ve got yourself some maximalist styling. Maximimalism really brings out the fun and playfulness of interior design. Often maximalist interiors are a mix of different styles and eras, show casing eclectic collections of art and accessories. To create a space that is unique and expressive. Less is more? No thanks! More is more!
