If 2017 was the year of Hygge, the question remains: what design trend will reign supreme in 2018? Trend forecasters are already making their predictions for the coming year’s hottest style, and it’s possible you’ve never heard of it! That’s okay, neither had we. Does Wabi-sabi ring a bell? If not, we did some research to better understand this Japanese style of decor. The Wabi-sabi design philosophy is centred on the beauty of the imperfect. Think organic materials, flawed woods, hand-crafted, wrinkled linen, and ceramics. The trend is reminiscent of minimalism, but less pristine. In fact, it’s even a little messy. Here’s some inspiration to help you understand and embody the beautiful mess that is Wabi-sabi in your own home.
When decorating their homes, there are two camps of people. Those who hold back, and those who do not. While we’re fans of all types of design, we completely understand the desire to keep things neutral in your home, because they’re timeless! However, part of the fun in having your own home is getting to infuse a little personality into each room. One way to do this is to add a pop of colour to the space you’re decorating. We spend a lot of time perusing the best home decor on Instagram, and lately have seen a lot of design – from furniture to decor accents – using one particular colour. Here’s how to add a pop of blue anywhere in your home.
Ah, the gallery wall! This home decor trend has really made a name for itself over the last few years, and for good reason. Gallery walls are the perfect excuse to put number of your favourite pieces of art together, rather than having to decide on one big piece for your wall. They’re a great way to show off your personality, and are essentially impossible to get wrong. Whether you choose a themed collection or a random one, if you’re looking to make a bold statement on a wall in your home we suggest trying this trend out.
At Paradise, we’re always striving to create open, usable spaces that are progressively designed. A huge part of creating the airy comfort so many of our buyers are drawn to is higher-than-standard ceilings on multiple floors. Couple this with natural light pouring in from huge windows, and our homes give you all the room you need to breathe.
