Refresh your interiors with a clever mix of upholstery and accessories for the new year. German design studio Stilbüro Bora.herke.palmisano shares their trend forecast ahead of their presentation at the upcoming Ambiente consumer goods trade fair
Happy colour pairings (pictured below) will be in vogue as interior styling increasingly becomes a form of self-expression. Think lively tones of red, pink and green that are inspired by botanical themes and vintage prints. These vibrant tones pair well with an eclectic mix of geometric patterns and oversized decorative objects to create a playful and irreverent air.
To turn the bedroom into a peaceful and tranquil haven, look to softer colours inspired by nature and furnishings made with natural materials such as silk, hemp, wool, wood, stone and clay. Artisan-made ceramics and hand-crafted details are on the rise, while designers continue to experiment with traditional craft techniques and recycling to ensure the sustainability of each design.
A sophisticated material palette is essential to an elegant and timeless residence. Preferred materials include hardwood, leather, velvet, velour and bouclé. Quality craftsmanship continues to be important to the creation of showpieces made using these fine fabrics; these can be paired with pieces featuring polished surfaces such as porcelain or glass.
