Embrace hosting intimate groups

While large parties may be on hold for now, don’t let that stop you from creating an inviting space for guests. It’s time to embrace hosting intimate groups in your social bubble. Here’s all the inspiration you need.

A great entertaining idea is to set up different food and drink stations around your home to encourage mingling and avoid overcrowding one space. We love how this super-sized, mixed greenery sets the tone for this buffet-style tablescape.

TREND WATCH: from Venice, with Love

by Silvana Longo

Originating in Italy’s Veneto area over 500 years ago, terrazzo is a composite material of marble chippings set into cement and polished to a super smooth finish. Created as a way to reuse the scrapped rock, this sustainable, speckled mosaic was traditionally used as flooring in Venetian palaces.

It had a moment in the sun in the ’70s but this year, building on the popularity of marble over the last few years, terrazzo offers a more colourful, more playful alternative. And its popularity in the 21st century soars beyond the floor and walls with many decor items popping up inspired by the abstract pattern. It brings texture and interest to fabrics and wallpapers, and these terrazzo-inspired items add a chic Italian vibe to your decor.

TREND WATCH: Electric Jungle

by Silvana Longo

You may have noticed wild animals and tropical themes dominating in decor lately, but this isn’t just a regular jungle motif adding a tropical vibe to your interiors. This summer, the Electric Jungle trend has emerged with shapes and objects of the natural world represented in an unnatural way. Taken out of their usual context and recoloured, at times in an Andy Warhol-ish, neon kind of way, these primal elements electrify any decor with incredible patterns, bold colours and lots of neon lighting. Step into this jungle-in-stereo look and add a wild spark of Pop Art to a space, inside and out.

Trend Watch: Wabi Meets Sabi

by Silvana Longo

The quest to perfection is taking a much-needed break in the design world. The big trend for 2018 is simplicity and embracing the not-so-perfect, which means a more lax approach to decorating. With its roots in Japan, Wabi-Sabi is “a way of living that focuses on finding beauty within the imperfections of life and accepting peacefully the natural cycle of growth and decay.” By welcoming Wabi-Sabi into your life and home, you give yourself license to ease up on the those perfectionistic tendencies.

Celebrate organic materials like aged wood, linen or stone, which wear well over time; relaxed bed linens that are soft and somewhat wrinkled; handmade pottery that reveals its poetry in the flaws. Focus on the essentials and embrace the soulfulness of cherished items that reveal the passage of time.

Trend Watch: Simply Stripes

The simplicity of stripes; most likely, they are our introduction to graphics and remain a timeless pattern, as they never really go out of style. This season though, we are seeing a particular spike in these sophisticated bands in fashion and on the home front—from the smallest kitchen items and accessories to bigger design elements covering walls and floors— stripes make an instant statement in a space. Whether they are vertical, horizontal, circular, thick or thin lines, subdued pairings with white or vibrant multi-coloured ones, stripes are a forever, go-to graphic that can either add an air of tailored elegance or give a room a much-needed relaxed, playful vibe.

Trend Watch: Marble Mix

by Silvana Longo

Marble is a luxurious, timeless stone usually seen gracing the surfaces of bathrooms and kitchens…So coveted, in the past few years I have watched this classic material, real or faux, extend its scope from the countertop and floor to smaller decor and accent pieces throughout the home. But it doesn’t travel alone; marble pairs up with gleaming metallics, warming up the traditionally lux, albeit cool material, with this perfect marble mix. From accent tables to wallpaper, this style story of two becoming one lends sophistication and interest to everyday pieces.
