In the meantime, we leave you with some of the latest trends in home decoration so that you can start to imagine the home of your dreams.
Less is more
Warm minimalism is a strong trend this season. The aim is clear: designing uncluttered yet cosy and welcoming rooms that provide calm and relaxation. How to achieve this? By combining all the best of Scandinavian and Japanese design and the most recent addition to the club, Mediterranean style! For this purpose, we create a blank canvas, featuring furniture made with clean straight lines combined with neutral and beige tones, and with natural materials such as wood and vegetable fibres providing special touches, with the addition of artisanal items. Another important trend to remember is for “raw” materials, pieces crafted with untreated wood, and light, plenty of light, which is also good for your plants.
In line with a more relaxed and warm aesthetic style, interior decorating has reinstated the curve, one of the main features of feng shui, ruling out aggressive, sharp corners. It’s true that curves are easy on the eye, and they can bring an air of serenity to a room. However, how can you incorporate this new trend in your home? In the sitting room the most daring option is to choose a sofa with curved lines, although if you would rather keep this important piece of furniture more neutral, you can always introduce touches elsewhere with mirrors, tables and chairs, or other decorative elements such as vases or rounded voluminous lamps.
A more natural aesthetic
This trend for natural material is reflected in the architecture of the houses, and this is why at VAPF we design our villas and apartments by reinventing the Mediterranean aesthetic to blend with the surroundings and the sea views that characterise our homes. This Mediterranean air is clearly represented in the simple lines, white façades, and in some cases, use of natural materials such as stone and wood.
Trends in the world of ceramics
How have all these trends been reflected in ceramics? Large formats, also known as XL in flooring make any room seem spacious, although this option also works on façades, kitchen work surfaces and in bathrooms. Another trend that never goes out of fashion is imitation wood porcelains which look great on your terrace and avoid the deterioration inherent in using wood in this humid zone where there is also considerable exposure to the sun, and moreover, you can always choose the same model for both indoors and outdoors so that they blend into one and the same space. Finally, another trend is the marble effect. In bathrooms you can use it to accentuate a wall or use the same design for both floor and walls to create a unified space, in kitchens it would look great as a work top or for front panels, or why not use it for both!
