According to Elle
Décor’s latest trend article, a growing taste for sustainability is leading
interior designers to be “strategic and purposeful” in making purchases this
year. This means buying less and highlighting interesting pieces. As a new take
on minimalism (minimal spending, minimal footprinting) they advise, “Less is
more.” But don’t take that as the golden rule this year. The same Elle Décor
slideshow/listicle advises that some designers are rebelling against the stern
minimalism of those Scandinavian designs that are all edges and subtle color;
they want fun colors, mixed vibes, and comfort — this “maximalist trend
dictates that “more is more.”
Contrary to that, though, is the fact that everyone seems to agree that black monochrome is suddenly the rage.
