Method to this MESS

Inspired by the Japanese Wabi Sabi, trendy interiors celebrate a messy vibe this season!

About two years ago, came the trend of a messy look in wardrobes and hair. Looks like the interiors trend radar got bitten by the same bug. The latest buzz among interior designers and architects as well as sculptors and furniture designers is Wabi Sabi — A Japanese word which stands for “imperfect.”

Finding beauty in imperfection is what artists and poets have sworn by for centuries. Home décor is now reflecting on similar lines. Imperfect, messy yet aesthetic and beautiful is what people are now looking for in home décor.
Some of the ways this look can be achieved are:

1. A brick wall: Exposed brick walls makes for a great living area/bathroom piece. Add a rustic look to an elegant modern home. Try not use to use brick designed wallpaper, as they appear fake. To create a real look, use faux bricks which create a distressed look for the space. One thing to keep in mind – it’s harder to drill anything into brick walls that are not painted.

2. Hand-crafted Pottery Ceramics that are made with precision, yet have an uneven cut on the edges or are unevenly shaped are having a major moment.

3. Grained wooden furniture
Wood furniture has always added an extra touch of elegance and class to any house. Instead of going for thoroughly polished wooden surfaces, opt for pieces with a rough look. A piece which looks like ‘half left at job’ is what is in. Add a sense of imperfection with perfectly made wooden trunks, un-polished wooden frames for big mirrors, grained wood coffee tables and the like.

4. Asymmetric wall art The wall art trend isn’t going anywhere, any time soon. But this season, opt for an asymmetrical appeal.

5. Wrinkled Linen sheets and bed covers
We all know making our beds in the morning is a mammoth task. Lucky for us, with this new trend, we won’t have to feel bad about leaving our bed un-made. Wrinkled sheets and covers are going to be a hot seller in the year 2018! So, slack a bit and spruce up the look of your room by leaving it just the way it is!
