Trend Alert - Seek Sanctuary

As society emerges from the COVID19 lockdown, we face uncertain times both together globally as well as individually. Certainties are now uncertain and no one knows what the future holds in any area of life. We are seeing a trend emerge as society 'seeks sanctuary' as people build their homes into ‘nests’ in order to feel safe and create calm spaces away from fear world. Ones home is a place of retreat from the uncertain world, a place where one can regenerate, refocus and find clarity.

We see this trend come to life as designers create calm interior spaces for their clients with neutral colour palettes, carefully considered furniture items and soft textiles. We are seeing warm greys, white on white, soft seaside tones and subtle terracotta give spaces a sense of security and serenity. We are inspired by Alex Bennett’s recent styling of her home ‘House Birch’ as featured on The Design Files blog.
