Be inspired by the New Nordic Interior Trend and by Off-Whites Home Decor
As global unrest continues, we find ourselves seeking comfort in the privacy of our homes. In 2019, we turn to colour to elicit optimism and to help us recover from the hustle we experience daily. But when a sense of calm is at a premium, nothing feels more appropriate than a home adorned in off-white hues. Embracing warm off-white shades creates a calm and resting environment that enables us to focus on our own thoughts and feelings. Just the thing we are desperate for these days.
So, it is no wonder why the off-whites have been gaining so much traction in the interior design world lately.
At first glance, this subtle colour trend appears tailor-made towards the Nordic style as it features a range of Scandinavian light wood shades. It sure can be. But this is not always the case.
The fact that I used the Hans Wegner CH25 lounge chair (one of Scandinavian design classics) and some pieces from Normann Copenhagen in this mood board doesn’t help in supporting this claim, but if you think about it – in this day and age when everything turns global and intertwined, is it still even possible to add a geographic attribute to emerging interior styles?
Obviously, this monochromatic space is ready for the taking. Tonal as it is, it doesn’t feel either as too much or too little. The secret to its appeal lies in the texture introduced through touchy textiles, patterns, plants and this gorgeous oak screen. All the layers blend in to create an elegant and timeless theme – perfect for those who are not willing to take any chances with trendy colour schemes. This look is always in style!
What I like the most about this concept are its sumptuous, sculptural lines and that fine balance between minimalism and ornamentation. At the same time, it is Scandinavian, Italian, contemporary, Art Deco, vintage and futuristic.
Wouldn’t mind moving in!
