Interiors trend 2017 - Desert Wanderer
2017 sees design trends influenced by our technological future emerge, others with vibrant colours and yet more with graphic pattern; it's also a year that is balanced out by a trend with elements that are slow, steady and have a sense of well-being. It offers a respite from a modern life that's in constant motion.
Desert Wanderer' offers an escape from the routine and fast pace of everyday life. It's a laid back, grounded trend providing opportunity for a retreat firmly linked to wellness. A blend of ancient cultural influences with a minimalist ethos and a wonderfully soothing colour palette.
Desert Wanderer promotes 'Controlled Rusticity' which is a look that is knowingly primitive and raw in some aspects, yet purposely minimalist and sophisticated in other respects: making it possible to successfully combine a soft, unstructured informality and a hard rigour in this way.

There is the perception of time passing slowly within this interior style that is clearly calm and quiet with a sparse yet comfortable aesthetic.
The palette is a hazy mirage of boundless colours merging into one another like a sandstorm. Spiced orange tones of muted saffron and cinnamon; pinked corals, blush lilac and mauve, with soft clay hues. They all form the basis of the palette sometimes shot through with a blushed silver, brass or bronze. Shades of a parched indigo introduce a depth that speaks to the sun faded black.
It occurs to us that light switches, power sockets, even IT points could add beautiful tones to an interior scheme if we used this colour palette to create them for you. They could become a silent guide to separate areas within a room, house or building quietly colour coding your path through the spaces.
