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.

It’s no secret that Paradise is in the business of building homes, but there’s another side to it. We’re building homes that will fit you and your family’s life – your dreams, your hopes, your future. While it’s your decor, keepsakes, and personal touch that will make the home all your own, even our unfurnished homes are pretty fantastic all on their own. We work alongside in-the-know designers to create interiors that are luxurious, but at the same time warm and welcoming. We spoke with the interior designer at Turner Fleischer who worked on High Point’s amazing interiors. Here’s what she had to say.

Once you’ve picked colour schemes and purposes for each room it’s time to add the extra touches that give each room that certain je ne sais quoi.

Here are some rooms and rugs to give you inspiration!
