New clients are already moving away from stark, hard-edged modern interior design, says Interior Designer Perla Lichi, ASID. “Lately clients are asking for a softer, more relaxed contemporary look, with more color. Bringing nature inside is another trend that we are most definitely noticing. These two concepts work hand in hand.”

The Frogtape Brand Painters Mask company predicts “Natural and Organic,” among one of five interior design trends for the New Year. Read a complete description of all five predictions here.

Vertical gardens and moss natural walls both inside and out are commercially available from companies such as Verde Profilo in Europe and California-based Artisan Moss. These companies consider their works as art or 'plant paintings.' They say they are not only gorgeous but also carefree, since moss doesn’t require maintenance.

MOSS WALLS AND VERTICAL GARDENS
“We have had requests for moss walls, primarily for commercial use,” says Ms. Lichi. “What could be more natural than nature itself? We anticipate a larger consumer demand in 2019 for these beautiful touches of natural greenery.”

Driftwood table bases and those made from natural tree stumps and other natural wood sources also look great. They are conversation starters for first visitors to your home. Reclaimed wood from timbers and decking rescued from old barns, factories and warehouses from the 18th to the early 20th century is recycled and used in today’s buildings. This reclaimed lumber is often used in flooring and wall paneling.

CONTEMPORARY INTERIORS WITH COLOR
“Our client wanted a contemporary look, with color accents. Their home perfectly reflects the “back to nature” look. We used reclaimed wood to frame a large fine art painting positioned on one wall of the living room. Then we highlighted the inside of the frame with blue LED lighting. This unique feature wall is the heart of this home and the inspiration for the blues, beiges and greys that flow throughout these rooms.”
