Trend Verses Timeless Calling in for the Wednesday Whoot Hoot!
Two big words in the world of Design are Trend and Timeless, we all want the trends and fall in love with the new visions, but we don't want to be a trend.....we want to create that timeless look. How do we balance the two? It's a tough one, so to the Oxford Dictionary to investigate these terms. Finding that TREND is the general direction in which something is developing or changing..... exciting! Where TIMELESS is not affected by the passage of time or change -but we don't want museum staleness.
So to find the solution of appeasing these two, we introduce the Design principal of Harmony and this creates not only the conversation that will work, but also gives BALANCE that you can have the exciting TREND and remain TIMELESS and true to your space.
In the colour of yellow is a hot Trend Colour for spring as I bogged earlier this month. But in balance and harmony we can use the trend, possibly in decor accents of pillows, drapery and yes lighting. The Trend would be to use bright hues of yellow in your space.....even just adding posies you are embracing Yellow spring trend. To create TIMELESS yellow in you space you balance with trend and key strong timeless pieces, furniture and art - a wall colour, design choices that you can develop with.
Here are a few inspirations on trend verses timeless rooms and decor pieces:
This above mood board for a timeless space, but by adding the trend decor pieces you can create both - Balance.

Remember when updating your TREND the key is Balance that will create the harmony in
TIMELESS Design .
