Decor & Design Trends

2016 has seen an explosion of contemporary takes on past design ideals in decor and furniture. I for one can't get enough of the recent Scandinavian twists on almost every line of furniture and decor at the moment. The 'scandi' design principals, which focus around simplistic materials, textures and lines have been an overriding theme in the interiors world and have taken on a whole new modern flare.

Raw materials seem to be the base of the current seasons trends with tons of marble and textured concrete being seen in gorgeous table tops as well as home wares. Paired with clean blonde, ashy timbers, Nordic has never looked so good! 

Here are just a few of my favorite spaces to get you all inspired.



The First Edition

Ok...after endless pondering and procrastinating, I've finally put pen to paper ( kind of ) and strung together my first post! If you're reading this then welcome, and bare with me while I fumble through figuring out this blog thing!

Being a designer, you're forever finding little pieces of inspiration from day to day. Whether its something in the pages of a magazine, stumbling across an awesome artist on Instagram or coming across some amazing street art. It may be my inner control freak, but once I spot something I love I like to keep a tabs on it. 

Row House will be a place for me to share all of these finds, as well showcase the talents behind them! Along the way I'll also share some of my own work, from interior projects to artworks. 

So to kick off, I thought I would share one of the publications that has been a platform for a huge variety of artists for over 90 years. It's covers sparked my love for a city half a world away and lead to my obsession with all things New York (including its Row Houses!). I've put together a collection of just some of my favourite covers from The New Yorker magazine. Enjoy!
