Design Trends

The idea of simplicity in our interiors continues to resonate with the many of us and is absolutely reinforced in our living spaces - the way we live and function; what our environment looks like; and what pieces we surround ourselves with. From an interior design perspective, the increasingly popular modern style addresses this idea of simplicity and highlights elements like streamlined furnishings, natural materials, and lack of clutter. Traditionally, architects communicate modern design in a simple form. Clear views of structures with open spaces are developed with no decorative details. Concrete and structural beams are left exposed. Elements like glass, wood, and steel show off the design while supporting the concept of form follows function, (the shape or attractiveness of a design element should come from the search for the function rather than the use of the decoration).
