10 years of interior trends forecasted

With this post, I would like to celebrate with you a really big milestone for ITALIANBARK: our 10th anniversary.

It looks like ages ago when I hit that “publish” button of that personal blog I called italianbark – the world literally changed in these years too, and also my business.

Today ITALIANBARK® is a trend lab + an architectural studio, but above all a community of people sharing love for good interiors and design.

To celebrate this special anniversary I’m taking with you back in time across all these 10 years, sharing one trend each year from 2014 to 2022 – to explore also how much taste changed in these years.

To celebrate this special milestone and say THANK YOU, I’m also sharing a very special promo code to join my premium trend membership – TRENDBARK – at 20% off. Just add the code IB10YEARS here until the 14th April.
