ASK THE DESIGNER “What Design Trends Do You Follow?”

This week our question comes all the way from Holland:

Sam Franklin @ A Happy Home In Holland

“What Design Trends Do You Follow?”

I can often be indecisive and change my mind frequently so my own home decor style is pretty eclectic.

I draw inspiration from so many different sources and tend cherry pick different elements from many different styles and trends.

At the moment I really love galvanised home accessories, spiky plants, baskets, chunky textiles and natural looking materials such as jute and driftwood.

With regards to an overall look or trend I would say I am particularly drawn to four different interior styles; Scandinavian, Rustic, Coastal, Farmhouse.  They are all different but lap over quite nicely.  I really love looking at the gorgeous photos of all these styles that you can find over on pinterest at the moment.


Such a fun question from Sam,  I love to see where everyone has landed on the design radar.  Be sure to check out all the designers answers, including mine at Sam’s link below.
