Upcoming Trends: Pastel Interiors

Move over pink. It’s time to let the other subtle tones have their chance to shine at home.

Pink has reigned supreme in interior design for the last several years (think white walls, pink sofa, and that too hip cactus in the corner), but it’s time to mix it up when designing with its fellow muted tones like aloe and apricot. The best examples mix three or four pastel tones with something unexpected like copper. Like all interior designs, it’s best to keep the palette under control and sophisticated. If everything is over the top, the overall design will seem forced instead of cutting edge.

Troye Sivan lays it all out there in latest album: Bloom

Troye Sivan spills his heart out in his most personal album yet, Bloom. Diving in deep, Sivan reaches listeners with raw and transparent lyrics that reflect his story. Bloom showcases his multidimensionality with love songs like Oh My My My!, Bloom, and Dance to This, which are full of upbeat dance anthems. Postcard and Seventeen are moodier melodies and dive into tougher topics. Common themes throughout his  album include being in love, sex, and vulnerability.

In an interview with Variety, Sivan discusses the importance of celebrating his story as a gay man and creating an album for the LGBTQ community. He touches on how, when growing up, he never had music to connect with his gay identity. Throughout the album, Sivan recreates feelings of being in love, uncomfortable sexual encounters when he was younger,  and the pain of unreciprocated feelings. Evidently, Sivan lays it all out there, and, as a result, creates a complex, yet effortless pop album that is the perfect balance of deep emotions and lighthearted fun. Following artists like Florence and the Machine and Lady Gaga, transparency is the key ingredient to pop success in 2018. You can catch Troye on his tour this fall starting in late September.

Current Obsessions: Curved Furniture

Forrest Glover

Body consciousness and positive self-image from the fashion industry has morphed and slipped into our interiors in the form of curved furniture. We are seeing a feminine touch to furniture design that is much welcomed and couldn’t have come at a better time. Boxy shapes and clunky spaces are being replaced by sensual lines and unconventional floor plans. The nature of curved furniture forces us to think outside of the box when creating a furniture plan. They just can’t sit nicely against the wall. 

Some of our favorites are:
The Polar sofa by Jean Royere. Available by Edition Modern from $8,250.
