Homestyle, April / May 2021

Will this be the year we see the end of trend-driven interiors? It's a subject the Homestyle office has been discussing recently. The thing about trends is that although they can be fun, or chic, or fabulous, following them slavishly often results in spaces that don't last the distance; an 'of the moment' lust-list can quickly turn into a 'seen everywhere' aesthetic.

Are you getting tired of that kind of paint-by-numbers styling? A poll posted on Instagram recently revealed that plenty of people share this sentiment. A trick Homestyle editor, Alice Lines likes to use when saving images to her inspo folders is to ask herself, 'is this my taste or am I being influenced by a trend?' In this era of image overload, it can be hard to tell, but the more your practice questioning this, the more confident you'll feel about establishing your own point of view.

So where to from here? Onwards and upwards to satisfy your own sense of style. If you're keen on that plaid print, bouclé sofa or wavy mirror that's piqued your interest, who really cares if it's in or out? We do love a good forecast, so you can count on us to keep bringing the latest ideas to your attention, but the bottom line? Do you! Many of the wonderful people and places we profile in this beautiful issue exemplify this attitude - pick up a copy and see what you think.
