As winter approaches, Blooming Artificial has collaborated with interior design expert Jess Hurrell to reveal the most popular interior design trends for the season.
By following these simple suggestions and using easy-to-care for artificial plants achieve your favourite trends, your home will be transformed into a space you adore this winter.
Dopamine décor is a new phenomenon that takes inspiration from ‘dopamine dressing’ in the fashion industry. The trend uses bright colours, patterns and positive quotes throughout the home to boost your mood, ideal for those who feel a little blue in the winter. Bouquets crafted with vibrant flowers are a wonderful way to bring in colour to a room and rebuild those connections to spring and summer.
Why not take things a step further and combine your interior design and clothing style? Indulge in bright colours and patterns in both your home decorations and wardrobe. “Dressing like your home is absolutely a thing. I know I do”, Jess comments.
Blooming Artificial recommends the artificial tequila sunrise bouquet for aligning with the dopamine décor trend and transforming your home with glorious shades of yellow, orange and green.
The 70s revival combines joyful textures and patterns in both fashion and interior design. For some, it is a great way to be expressive in their home and add a feeling of nostalgia to their life.
Jess Hurrell comments, “... plants, and lots of them, are key to creating that boho vibe. Palms, monstera, sansevieria are all very 70’s in style.” Jess styles her own artificial sansevieria (£50) by the fireplace in the living room, adding both colour and pattern to the space, as seen below.
Japandi features slatted walls, wood panelling and sustainable materials as it adopts two ways of living; hygge, a Scandinavian term for cosiness at home, and wabi-sabi, a Japanese term for the beauty of imperfection.
Jess suggests that “a simple trailing bamboo bush (£15) or string of pearls can look really effective hanging over a shelf, or mantelpiece” for a japandi themed space, as she has styled below.
Maximalism is the rejection of minimalism – it's about being creative, bold and spirited with your style. Patterns, prints, textures and highly saturated colours are key traits of the popular interior design trend.
With such a free and expressive trend, it can be tough deciding where to begin. For initial experiments of Maximalism within the home, Jess suggests taking the “more is more approach, with shelves bursting with greenery”.
