Earthy and raw interiors all the rage

From broken stone to natural elements of rattan and cane, this year it’s all about embracing raw-looking designs with crisp white interiors, says a prominent property stylist 

From Justine Wilson, Vault Interiors

Justine Wilson, leading property stylist and founder of Vault Interiors predicts that interior styling is coming back to nature.

Whether it’s broken stone to natural elements of rattan and cane and the use of recycled materials, this year it’s all about embracing raw-looking designs with crisp white interiors.

Justine Wilson says: “There has been a major shift over the past 12 months to getting back to nature, looking for ways to be more sustainable and generally becoming more minimalistic when it comes to styling. For many that feeling of nature combined with neutrals creates a sense of calm and prosperity."

Justine’s top five interior trends are:

1. Broken stone/crazy paving

This will be a big trend, it’s where slabs of stone like terrazzo, terracotta, marble, or slate tiles are broken into random pieces and laid in a haphazard way creating a natural-looking pattern. "It’s an earthy look that was popular in the 80s, and that I see used in modern boho-style homes, hotels, and retail spaces."

2. Natural elements

Rattan, cane and woven materials will continue to dominate, especially in furniture and lighting design. These raw-looking natural designs will be paired with crisp white interiors.

3. Rendering interior walls

The use of a sand bag creates a rustic effect similar to what you would find in the Greek islands or externally like on a Spanish revival style home. Think white or beige as the colour of choice, but this will be applied inside in main living areas and bathrooms.

4. Curves and arches

These will be very popular, especially in furniture and joinery design. New build homes will have arched doorways and windows as key design features.

5. Recycled timber beams

"These will be big, I see these being integrated in ceiling design to create the look of a rustic warehouse or farmhouse style but paired with modern colours and joinery. They will also feature in external architectural elements such as pergolas or outdoor breezeways."

“When it comes to interior accent colours, these will remain inspired from natural elements and earthy tones so think olive tones, rust tones, soft blues and beige and sand tones,” adds Wilson.
