Scandinavian style is stripped down to the simplicity of necessity and comfort, resulting in spaces that clear the mind and offer room to breathe. Start with a cool color palette of white and gray, and add warmth with wood and leather accents. We love how Hotel SP34 in Copenhagen incorporates mid-century modern silhouettes and refined industrial pieces to add shape and form.
For those who crave the comforts of home, traditional style is making its comeback as an inspiring blend of contemporary and eclectic. At Mattie’s in Austin, Texas, classic pieces are flanked by new favorites – think a solid wood dining table with contemporary artwork or genuine leather sofa with an heirloom rug. These looks will make you want to gather and celebrate with loved ones for seasons to come.
Embracing imperfection is at the heart of artisan-inspired and handmade design. Look for pieces that incorporate earthy elements, such as hardwood, jute, clay, wool, and wicker – a combination of textures will create a space that’s interesting and within a neutral color palette. Beyond naturally occurring patterns, look for rugs and pillows featuring southwestern or Aztec-inspired designs, similar to those at Scorpios in Greece.
We love the bold color choices of these rooms at the Grand Boulevard Hotel in Paris – they’re funky, timeless, and a little glam. To get the look, paint your walls in a trending color and add furniture and décor in varying shades (think sage and dark teal or salmon and russet). Then add texture and depth with velvet, metallics, and tufted upholstery.
Organic style is warm, full of texture, and all about natural elements. The muted blues and distressed grays of this space at the Acre Hotel in Mexico make the perfect backdrop for reclaimed wood and plant life. Lighting plays an important role, too, so look for pendants or candles to provide a comforting glow when natural light isn’t in play.
Just like these destinations, your home can be filled with trending style from simple accents to statement furniture. For more inspiring spaces visit The Venue Report.
