For some. wabi-sabi is more of a guiding principle than a design trend. It's about accepting things as they are. rather than spending your time wishing for something better. and retraining yourself to find the positives in less-than-ideal situations.

If you're looking for a quick way to help your home feel more like you. a gallery wall might just be a perfect choice. Put simply. this design choice allows you to showcase who you are and how you'd like for it to be put on display.The first step is to decide what exactly you'd like to show off. Feel free to peruse sites like Freshome for some gallery wall inspiration. but items like photographs. artwork.

But it will be different this time. Geometric patterns (mentioned by 24%). florals (32%) and layered textures will be incorporated to make contemporary design warmer and unique.
Natural materials play a key role in this trend.

It's possible to incorporate these materials no matter where your aesthetic preferences may lie.
