Welcome – Trends don’t develop in a vacuum, burning brightly for just one season before evaporating without a trace. They’re slowly progressing ideas, evolving incrementally until they become new yet similar variations of the same general theme.
Trends don’t exist in a vacuum, either. Colours, materials, finishes and concepts build upon one another until they take shape into something greater and better defined. Over the course of a decade or longer, we start to see the strongest and longest lasting combinations of the most prevalent ideas begin to become synonymous with a particular time or era – locked into the pages of decorating and design history.
The contents of this habitat plus bring focus to the most relevant trends out there: those that are continuing to evolve and be redefined as well as those that are just beginning to take shape. Most importantly, it is full of inspiring ideas which you can blend and combine with your own. While it’s one thing to be cognisant of the trends that are out there, it can be quite another to know how to translate them to your own project in a way that reflects your tastes and personality. We hope that what you’ll find in this habitat plus helps you with both.
