The Hot New Décor Trend That's a Little Rough Around the Edges
If 2017 was the year of sleek minimalistic spaces, 2018 will undoubtedly swing the pendulum back to the other extreme. That's just how trends work. We've already seen glimpses of this tendency with maximalist interiors gaining traction on the design scene. More recently, the Japanese imperfect art of wabi-sabi was named one of next year's biggest trends. Even brutalism, a post-war architectural trend, saw a revival moment this year. By all accounts, we're due for a shift in décor trends that feels a little less clinical and stark and a little more realistic and lived-in.
One of the latest examples of this shift is in a new décor book recently launched called In the Rough by Irene Schampaert and Iris De Feijter, which celebrates raw and rugged interiors around the world. The book pays homage to untreated materials like rusted iron, untreated wood, and unpolished concrete with a selection of home tours from the world's most avant-garde architects and designers. Think you're ready to let go of your ultra-tidy minimalistic tendencies? Try these edgy trends for a space that's a little rough around the edges.
