TEXTURE and MATERIAL TRENDS SPRING-SUMMER 2019 - by SCARABEJ SKUPINA
Undoubtably, the word, or rather the act, to leave its mark on this year’s trends for Spring/Summer 2019 will be biophilia – a human need to connect with nature. This spring, nature’s awakening will not only be taking place outside, but also in our homes. In the previous years, we already discovered how our home can change if we introduce plants to it. Now we are taking it a step further with natural, raw and sustainable materials, which bring a healthier lifestyle and connection with nature to our apartments. If we are daring, we can additionally emphasize this trend by using very popular maxi floral and plant patterns. They can be used as wallpaper, paintings or smaller decorative elements.
Ribbed glass, which is becoming increasingly popular in bathroom design, is taking the place of tinted glass and can also be used in decorative elements.
As we should not let spring and summer days make us forget about comfort and affluence, the winter trends for velvet and marble continue in every imaginable color. Continually receiving greater visibility are handmade products in strong colors and patterns. From the Mexican air, which ruled during the winter, to African patterns, which will dominate in the summer with its combination of bold and neutral colors based on natural materials, of course.
So, the trends in the first half of the year entice us into cross- ing the line when using materials and textures while inviting us into conscious use of human-friendly, home-friendly and na- ture-friendly materials.
