Interior Grazing: How to Mesh Trends for a Room that Works!
My number one rule is to never follow trends too closely. Instead, I like to do what I call ‘interior grazing’; grabbing a few nibbles from every scheme that appeals to me. Doing this creates a room that feels balance and won’t date. This post is going to explain my philosophy further!
The living room setting above from Oz Design does interior grazing perfectly. It’s part retro, part industrial, a tad Scandi and a little Hollywood regency. From a design perspective, it just works! Let’s break it down into three easy steps:
- The Paloma sofa is the starting point (part Scandi). It’s angular base and button back cushion detailing makes it soft and comfy. It’s the plush, feminine piece in the room.
- Add the Porto Buffet and you have instant contrast (industrial and retro). It feels somewhat masculine, with its multi timber finish and different sized drawers, but the colours still provide warmth, which is what connects it to the sofa.
- With these two pieces in place, warmth is further added with the addition of some on-trend colours for Autumn – red and orange. Those Tao Stools are the nod to the Hollywood regency trend – and look amazing!
Trend meshing, interior grazing – call it what you will – but this philosophy works (and Oz Design are doing it well)! Drop me a comment below and let me know if you do this in your home.
