Who would not like to know which trends will prevail in the home in the coming months? Because you know: Forecasts are difficult, especially when they refer to the future. Nevertheless, connoisseurs of the scene always dare to lean a little further out of the window and present a few developments that are already emerging today. One of the brave ones this time is NZZ’s online magazine Bellevue. Here Claudia Furger took a look around and came up with seven home trends for the coming autumn and winter.
According to the author, the following seven trends await us in the coming months:
- Indoor gardening: What has grown on balconies and front gardens in spring and summer is now apparently to be saved for the dignified interior.
- Tart wickerwork and natural colours: Matching the green in interiors, more rustic materials and shades of colour such as curry, aubergine, sage, grey and blue now seem to be gaining ground. They are intended to create an unagitated, chic ambience in which we feel well looked after and safe.
- Monochrome Looks: Calm and clarity are in demand and tone-in-tone furnishings should ensure this. Where flashy colours used to freshen up everyday life, dignified interiors are now based more on a common base colour in different brightness levels.
- Minimalism with inviting forms: Cosiness is in demand, says the article. So the design of the near future is minimalist, but inviting and soft; the fabrics are haptically pleasant. This “Cosy Minimalism” is one of the top trends.
- Cord: Cord is almost only known today from bland jokes about psychoanalysts who are said to have almost idolized this fabric. Now this textile is to become the trend fabric of the season.
- Sustainability: Sustainable production, environmentally friendly processes and careful use of resources is to a certain extent a long-term trend whose significance is constantly growing. Furniture made of plastic waste, carpets made of PET bottles or wooden furniture from domestic forests are becoming increasingly popular. However, such pieces are only sustainable if they are not overtaken by the next trend.
- A lot of personality: Your personal interior is mixed from the most diverse set pieces. There’s the antique cupboard from your grandmother’s house next to the modern classic from the vintage shop, a friend’s photo art hangs next to the old mirror and on the floor lies the home-woven carpet.
