What Design Trends Do You Follow Sam?

Sam-  “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 galvanized 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.”


My Answer:

Home trends are always evolving over time. Of course, I am being drawn to the current trends of rustic farmhouse, and industrial modern right now, but I always seem to take comfort in a consistent theme of the beach. I am not talking about seashells and starfish everywhere, my design is more subtle a chic nod to a beach feel with raw driftwood, and aqua tones.
