HEADING OUT:

the Cluttered Look

To create a more relaxing space, people are kicking clutter to the curb. If you are at this stage this mi ght be good time to recycle.

Whether it’s a messy bookshelf or too many dust collectors, clutter makes a space look smaller than it is.

TIP* Get rid of duplicates! Whether its an extra can opener or superfluous furniture pieces pair it down.

“Simplicity, clarity, functionality”

As the clutter goes, we create more serene room environments by adopting a minimalist style.

This means intentionally promoting  things with the highest purpose and value while at the same time making possible a clean aesthetic.

Gaudy floor lamps or dated grandmother styles like the one above are outta here. 

For large spaces use strategically placed table lamps and for smaller spaces modern, minimalist floor lamps that provide several types of lighting will work best.

“Elegant Modern & Natural”

There’s something breezy and cozy about raffia, which is why this material is being used for pillows and throw blankets.

Modern & Natural, this material is also washable and easy to keep clean.

For the last 5 years the trend has centered around “neutral” colors for main living room pieces. Muted greys, beige, cream and white were the selected backdrop colours.  Essentially fairly drab. 

The new trend is now toward some dramatic color for some of the main pieces. If you do retain a neutral pallett than use a pop of color  with accent pieces like throw pillows and area rugs.
