These charming home accents — even non-working fireplaces — are once again becoming the focal point of rooms, reports Houzz. Instead of placing a large TV above the fireplace or ignoring it all together, people are now arranging their furniture to put the fireplace center stage.
Homes with nooks and places to retrieve will become more popular as humans react to our increasingly technological lives.
“With an ever-increasing amount of time spent in front of a computer or smartphone screen during the day…there will be a greater desire to create spaces in our lives devoid of digital distraction,” says the team at Nathan + Jac.
“This may not mean listing the 65 inch flat screen on Gumtree, but we will seek to create havens of calm and tranquility, whether it’s a bedroom or a nook we can escape to, even if it is to lazily scroll our Instagram feeds in peace.”
Relaxed furniture and materials will follow suit, from deep sofas with linen slip covers, to oversized love seats, day beds, Icelandic sheepskins, chunky knit wool rugs and floor cushions.
6. Jewel tones
While pastel shades of pink and blue are currently having their day in the sun, they will soon be overtaken by jewel tones inspired by metals, space, stars, clouds and the cosmos.
“Metallics, metals, raw-cut quartz, Lucite and opal will add a dash of sparkle and interest,” says the Nathan + Jac team.
“X-ray materials, transparent fabrics, floaty silks and sheers will create a lightness and soft romantic element to this trend, which embodies an optimism for where we have come from and where we are headed.”
