What if we told you that even the trendiest of trends could be tweaked to be trendier? Now say that five times fast, we dare ya! But all jokes aside, it’s the truth, and we’re here to give you the whole ‘tea’ (this is the trendier slang to giving you the whole ‘scoop’). So how can you make a trend trendier, you ask?
Let’s start with the accent wall. Now don’t get us wrong; the accent wall is fabulous, and we love it, but after seeing one bold wall, you’ve seen them all. Now imagine this: an accent celling!
Speaking of simple, the minimalist trend has been skyrocketing in recent years; from the shopper, to the interior designer and even the marketer, minimalism is everywhere. So now you’re sitting there wondering where we’re going with this, right? Can you minimalize minimalism to make it trendier? Is that even possible? To that we say, “Why not?”
We’re all about making trends work for you, and one of our favourites has definitely been the ‘anything goes’ attitude of the modern era, particularly when it comes to patterns and textures. It used to be that only certain colours and patterns were acceptable together. “Stripes and polka dots?! Absolutely not! Were you raised by wolves?”
Today, creativity is encouraged, and even on the most influential fashion runways in the world, the mix and match magic has taken rein. Interior designers globally are having a ball playing with unthinkable combinations that have morphed from shun-worthy to stunning! “It’s all about creating cohesion through colour and a combination of non-competing scales,” interior and furniture designer Danielle Walch of The Insider explains. How to take the ‘anything goes’ trend and make it trendier? Well that’s the best part! It’s totally up to you. Why can’t your space have a splash of everything you love?
Rule number one of making the trendiest of trends trendier (have you said it five times fast yet?): make it work for you.
