IN THE INTERIOR
The focus of Inner Retreat is on calm and serenity, and creating an environment in which we can recharge. Flowers and plants with recognised relaxing properties are central to the theme, as are traditional gestures that we find familiar, and a monochromatic palette that creates a space for deflecting outside stressors.
Everything associated with Inner Retreat has passed through a soft, muting filter. We see mainly rounded, delicate forms in pastel and natural shades, with an accent of pink here and there. White is a colour that frequently occurs in the colour palette. Patterns only appear if they are soothing, and natural structures such as waffle and honeycomb are ever-present. Materials are mainly natural, and there’s a proliferation of semi-transparent substances like matt glass, resin and breathable fabric to create space and calm.
APPLY IT TO FLOWERS
A few simple additions and adjustments will inject your home with the serenity of Inner Retreat. The feeling of the trend, for example, is instantly conjured with a frosted glass vase holding a serene and delicate bouquet of orchids and waxflowers in one or two simple colours. A bed of soft peonies or a minimalist bouquet with thistles and gypsophila also fit well with this trend.
