Today’s interior design trends have been quickly adapting and evolving to keep up with
the state of our 2020 world. As people are spending more time in their homes, it is
becoming increasingly essential to make these spaces warm and comfortable. To
achieve this, we are seeing more and more people going back to natural inspirations and choosing to integrate organic elements into their living environments.
People want their surroundings to feel inviting and down-to-earth, but they also want spaces that tell a story. This brings us to a focus on more hand-crafted products that create a connection with their makers. Mass-made items are less sought-after and individuality is in demand. This has led us to turn towards unique human design with natural components and an organic aesthetic, rather than the manufactured. Authenticity is coveted and can be created by way of neutrals, warm undertones, and a fine balance between the old and the new.
With the importance of taking care of our planet becoming even more prominent, sustainability and the use of sustainable materials inside the home have also become increasingly important. As society gravitates towards environmentally friendly lifestyles, people are more conscious in selecting materials for their homes. They want to invest in quality products made with genuine, solid materials that are both responsible and timeless, growing with the space as trends come and go.
A prime example of seamlessly incorporating an earthy material into one’s décor is the use of wood. The natural texture of wood offers subtle details that have the potential to make big statements. Terrae Home has created the perfect décor pieces to complete any refined tablescape. Their modular designs and versatile products make for useful accents that can enhance a living space by bringing the outdoors, inside. Their various wooden collections provide grain options to suite individual tastes – our personal favourite being the walnut collection! The best part is that the products are Canadian made, and supporting local businesses is a priority task in today’s current climate.
