Future trends alert*

So, according to The Future Laboratory, we are witnessing the end of opulence and the beginning of austerity in interiors. As lovers of design, we are looking for the unique, the hand-crafted and the ethical. And in terms of aesthetic - gloss, bling and sparkle are OUT! and soft muted metallics, simple shapes and grey are IN! Or as Future Laboratory put it ' the look of the late afternoon is in'. Examples of this new trend are Rabih Hage's Kings Cross Rough Luxe boutique and anything and everything by Ilse Crawford, my favorite interior designer at the moment. All hail the pared back look.
