The recent pandemic gave the online world a significant boost, with all of us spending more time than ever in the digital world. As we spend time on the internet and less in the real world we become more and more demanding as consumers, while at the same time needing to be flexible in our lives and work and be seen to be going with the flow. This sense of illusion and reality comes together this season in "Crazy Illusions". This style trend is the result of the limitations that we experience as a society and the huge desire we feel for pleasure, freedom and creative space. Just like the hard times during and after the First World War which were followed by the roaring twenties.
The Crazy Illusions style trend brings in a new, fresh look and focuses on vibrant colours, eye-catching designs and metallics. Twisted shapes and the ever-present roundness of circles are also popular this season.
WHAT MAKES UP CRAZY ILLUSIONS?
Everything in this style trend is bright, playful and surprising. This season we're using a lot of round shapes and different textures and colours to create an extravagant, fairytale-like atmosphere. And of course, this means huge diversity in the types of flowers used to create this effect. Try mixing and matching neutral colours with bright ones, and fresh flowers with dried ones. A great idea is to combine displays of flowers with displays of plants, which creates a striking, powerful look.
CRAZY ILLUSIONS IN THE HOME
Inside, this trend lends itself to inspiration, innovation and feeling free. Creative expression stimulates your view of day-to-day and makes things feel fresh and exciting. Forget the rules - combine everything with everything else and take joy in the slight chaos this creates. You'll capture your imagination and remember that life shouldn't be taken too seriously.
MAKE FLOWERS YOUR CRAZY ILLUSIONS GATEWAY
You really don't have to change up all of your furniture and get out the paint rollers to bring this trend into your home. With a few simple additions and adjustments, you'll be up to date in no time. A colourful vase containing a bouquet of the flowers we suggest will bring you that playful Crazy Illusions feeling. Or you could try creating a flower chandelier using your favourite blooms, to bring whimsy into your home.
