Twin sisters Alisa and Lysandra Fraser won The Block: Sky High in 2013, then returned to the show to defend their title in 2014. Since then, the Adelaide duo have been busy working as interior designers on bespoke properties, and sharing their renovation tips on their Instagram. Here, the pair give us the head’s up on the latest home trends.
Always looking forward is how we stay on top of our game as interior designers. It happens every year – interior trends seem to be reaching a point of balance and then BAM! Something new arrives and shakes things up. While we can’t always tell when a trend is about to lose steam, we do have some foresight when a trend is about to hit the mainstream.
If you’re looking to renovate or restyle in the near future, keep these three major trends in mind.
Sustainability and wellness are the words – and the movements – of the moment. With a step away from fast fashion and a greater focus on quality, creating a harmonious world to live in is on everyone’s mind, and it’s in everybody’s homes too. We’ve seen the huge influence these trends have had on interior design. A great example of this occurred back in January, when we were all Marie Kondo’ing our homes and thinking more deliberately about our possessions.
In 2020, we’ll see this taken to a new level with mindfulness. In our fast-paced lifestyles, we’re seeing the home become the calm refuge from the hustle and bustle of the everyday.
Natural tones and textures will help us achieve that feeling of tranquillity within our personal spaces. Think white and neutral colours and mixed textures, like linen and natural fibres. Clay, stone and wood are back as rustic materials that remind of us of our connection with nature.
