Today we’re starting to take a deeper look into a few of the trends that caught our eye at the Maison et Objet 2016 show, so you can find out exactly what you ought be decorating your home with now.
And this time around, we’re starting where naturally seems fit- the natural vibes.
If there’s one thing you couldn’t miss at the show, it was the floor to ceiling plants, giant panels of mineral patterns and the amount of barely-treated woods. Of course the rise of Abigail Ahern‘s faux flowers has helped the natural scene a lot, but this season, we’re looking forward to seeing a whole lot more of it.
On the floor, in baskets, off the ceiling and hanging on walls, real, faux and even knitted. Wherever we looked, there was plenty of foliage to be seen.
Plants are great for keeping your spaces looking fresh, even when outside the leaves are falling and green views are turning a warming shade of red.
No-one ever said that the plants had to be conventional. Knitted, acrylics or papercraft, there’s many more options than ever before.
Wall plants and hangers are extremely big right now, perfect for those homes that are lacking the spare space on the countertops.
Time and time again we read the interior designers saying how you should have at least one plant/vase of flowers/foliage display in every room in the house, and this exhibition showed us just how many options there were out there.
What do you think? Do you keep to the one-a-room rule? Let us know in the comments below…
