According to Los Angeles based interior designer Delta Wright, she shares that “We will see highly crafted, unusual materials meticulously featured in furnishings and architecture.” There is a shift from common designs or layouts as homeowners look into finding more interesting ways to let their personalities shine through their home and create spaces that can share their story.
The lesson here? Forget conventional. Look for extravagant or dynamic ways you can add to your living space. Think radical colours, uniquely-placed family heirlooms or just a simple personal painting can represent your personality in a happy and comfortable home.
- Long-term designs that will never go out of style

Today’s homeowners are starting to think longer-term than they have in the past. Becoming more aware of the ecological implications of purchases is of course a good thing. This makes them more open to spending more on high-quality pieces that can last for longer periods of time.
The key to long-term thinking is timelessness. This means finding pieces that are beyond fast-moving trends and can be a permanent piece of your home in the coming years.

This can be observed in the desire of achieving an overall design sensibility while bringing in warmth and earthy elements into a space.
