There has been one home interiors trend that has literally Dominated 2019 so far and none of us seen it coming! It is not a trendy new colour or piece of furniture, it is not a fashionable new flooring or wallpaper. No, 2019 so far has seen us gripped in a frenzy of Decluttering.
This new obsession with organising and cleaning might have a little something to do with a Japanese Netflix phenomenon, which is quite literally sweeping the world. The concept of streamlining our lives and letting go of objects or possession that do not bring us joy, so we can enjoy a calmer more organised home is appealing to many of us.
In a consumer driven, disposable world where we are constantly adding to landfill. While living in homes bursting at the seams, which cause us daily stress as we struggle to stay on top of the mess. This Japanese approach to compact, organised living speaks to us on a new level.
The idea however of only keeping things in your home that Spark joy, does seem a little extreme. There are many essential items in my home that spark very little joy but i would find it hard to live without. My Iron and Ironing board can actually spark dread but I’m pretty sure I’d miss them (probably! Lol).
The whole concept however of creating a calm, happy, organised home does have me on board and gets me thinking about the idea of designing interiors that spark joy. Of saying no to quick fixes in our homes that we don’t completely love, of culling the clutter that stops us truly appreciating the beautiful homes we have created and of factoring in storage to good design.
My interior design advice this season is to be ruthless, ditch the mess. Identify the storage deficits in your home, invest in good quality book cases, wardrobes and pieces for your home that spark joy! Avoid the temporary fixes that never truly had your heart and vow to create the home you love for yourself in 2019, that will last you for years to come.
