Some trends are reminiscent of the olden days, while others are brand new, so no matter what your or your client’s preferences are you are bound to find something to help you design any kind of real estate your client needs. Welcome to the new era of architecture and design.
Innovative thinking and problem solving are essential skills for designers in today’s day and age. As climate changes and overpopulation continue to threaten life as we know it, designers and architects are challenged to think outside the box and come up with more sustainable solutions.
As the world becomes more aware of the seriousness of overproduction, issues with waste reduction, and climate changes, people are demanding transparency from all companies.

Eco friendly furniture and recyclable building materials are even being described as ‘sexy’. Peace and balance are the dominant requirements for interiors so it seems like the soft and tactile monochrome is here to stay. Furniture, on the other hand, is becoming more extravagant, so get ready for some plus-size pieces. Nevertheless, simplicity and a gentle rejection of the modern and smart for the vintage and analogue are expected to make their way into our homes and offices.

The classic white, minimalist walls are being traded for spaces with colorful statement walls that add a bit of flair to the room.
