DIY Trends 2017 and 2018

No matter whether you like colorful designs minimalistic products – the newest design trends inspire everybody. After „Whimsy“ and „Thoughtful“ we would like to show you a more natural style: „Wabi Sabi“.

Often, we try to be perfect in every aspect of life: in our job, in our relationship, as parents of our children and of course as well when it comes to the decoration of our homes. But sometimes it’s just too much to be perfect in every detail. Being perfect can also end up in an obsession. And you know what? It can be extremely fulfilling to not arrange every single piece in our flat like in an interior magazine.

Design Trend Wabi Sabi

This is as well the main message of the new Wabi Sabi trend – which is also called imperfect design trend. But what exactly does that mean? Originally these words come from Japanese tradition comprising a world view which is centred on acceptance of imperfection and transience. This concept does belong to the Buddhist paradigm which states the three marks of existence – impermanence, suffering and emptiness. Regarding design it refers to key words such as asymmetry, simplicity, modesty, roughness and the integrity of natural objects.

In DIY projects we can realize the Wabi Sabi Trend by combining imperfect objects with regular and organized ones resulting in colourful patchwork design, a mixture of pearls when it comes to jewellery design or a combination of rattan and ribbons in cage plaiting.
