Get the Trend: Escapism

Escapism’s been marked as a design trend to watch this year and it’s not hard to understand why. In an era of technological domination, people are seeking havens in the home where they can retreat from the digital world and all its distractions.

Designers are focusing on spaces where television, smartphones, computers and tablets can’t get in. Instead, the focus is on calm, quiet and comfortable corners – be it a reading corner, a small nook in the home or a tech-free zone in your bedroom. It’s hard to imagine a space without any technology in your home today, so this is why Escapism can be one of the most challenging trends to input.

The best examples of escapism can include velvet cushions, sheepskin rugs or oversized chairs. Draping your interior with tactile textiles is key if you are modelling the most up-to-date Escapism-based bedroom.

Other escapism bedroom trends can include relaxed furniture with rich and natural materials in upholstery and bed linen, wooden ceilings, and a fresh colour palette. House plants serve to reinforce the look as this gives your bedroom an adopted ‘naturist’ theme.
