For me interiors, as in fashion, is very much about a neutral base with dashes of peculiarity. And I also greatly appreciate minimalism. And as in fashion, interior trends are about can be as fickle as they come. Magenta one moment, macabre antlers the next. It’s easy to get swept up with what is in vogue, especially with the varied selections out there. So it’s important to invest in a solid base, like that of the above inspiration, a timeless roseate interior. And even though one can find many a covetable piece at a reasonable price these days, it is because of this that it becomes overly effortless to overuse and saturate your space with on trend frivolities. Making them look tired and in need of constant freshening up. And unless you reside in a nineteen bedroom and bathroom abode, chances are you won’t be able to accomodate a perpetual collection of vast curiosities to begin with. Something which I too can be prone to doing myself at times because I just want all the things.
So it always makes sense to prepare yourself with a great base by sticking to a neutral palette with a pop of something additional like a roseate interior so you can add or move around certain pieces. Shades like millennial pink have immense popularity and garnered a huge following. However this soft shade of blush isn’t a new trend. It’s been a hue that has always remained as a firm favourite in design. Especially when paired with metallic accents like copper. And unlike trends like chevron or fluorescent, a roseate interior isn/t something you’ll feel compelled to replace next season or worse, stuck with ghastly pieces for an eternity (or until your next major spring clean). Personally I am opting for more sustainable buys in my lifestyle; especially when it comes to homewares. It is far too easy these days to get caught up in trends, especially with the rise of “fast homewares”. Cheap and accessible plastic pieces that people don’t think twice about disposing of because they can go back to the store and buy the newest, shiny fad. I’d rather invest in transcendent pieces as the idea of wasting resources and materials doesn’t bode well with me anymore. Especially given todays climate and plastic crisis.
