I'm a firm believer in being inspired by the everyday. I think if you look hard enough, you can pretty much use anything in your everyday life (even the seemingly mundane) to inspire an interior design scheme.It could be a tree you pass on the way to work, a piece of jewellery you wear all the time, an old bowl you have at home, or in my case - random moments I see when I'm out running. And sometimes you're not sure why these moments appeal to you, or why they move you, but they do.
Some design trends come and go in the blink of an eye, while others remain so popular that they become bankable interior styles year on year.
But how do you figure out what’s in, what’s out and what should’ve never been on our radar to begin with?
Wonder no more; I’ve called in the most in-the-know people in the biz to give us the lowdown on 10 popular interior design trends of the past and present.
It’s safe to say that Mr Jason Grant is taking over the world. Not only is the stylist and author one of the most popular creatives in the country, but his recent candle collaboration with the Palm Beach Collection allows him to add product designer to his CV, too.
House Rules has been a bit of a mixed bag this year, truth be told. Some weeks I've seen spaces that I've gasped over - in a good way - while other reveals have had me wanting to get in the car and drive back to NSW to redo the rooms (Steve and Tiana's home, I'm looking at you).
Now I don't want to say that House Rules has been disappointing, because some of the spaces revealed so far this season have been truly beautiful. But, I've yet to see a reveal where I thought so many of the rooms were exceptional. Until now. Not perfect, of course, but pretty sublime and really easy to make a few tweaks to in order to correct the shortfalls.
