Greenhouses and winter gardens are such a source of wonder and nostalgia so it’s not that surprising that they are now a trending topic. Botanical illustrations and motifs have been popular for quite a while now, so I love seeing how it has evolved into more specific trends.
One of my favorite themes for inspiration is the Coast and I love how many perspectives one can take to approach it. One I’m really into lately is all about peace, quiet and escape. It breathes tranquility, vacations and disconnecting from the city/the internet/the modern world, your pick. It has a very reduced color palette and all evoke the feeling of stress-free beach days.
Many top influencers like Jess Ann Kirby and Julia Engel have been posting the most beautiful photos of their visits to flower farms like the ones above and I can’t get enough of them. These flower fields are probably some of the most stunning photo locations ever and also a great source of inspiration. If you’re looking to get on board with this trend I highly recommend reading Erin Benzakein’s book (here) or following her on instagram (here) where she shares a behind the scenes look into her own flower farm business.
This desert-inspired trend has been growing stronger for a while and I really like how it has expanded to several industries, from home decor, fashion, art prints, photography productions and stationery. I find it hard to explain what defines it because it’s not always literally about deserts but the concept and general feel of places like the Grand Canyon. One of the biggest commonalities is the almost-exclusive warm color palette: oranges, reds, neutrals, beige, sand tones. In terms of graphics and artworks, I’ve seen lots of geometric hand-painted abstracts that evoke the same feelings.
I love art and design pieces that are very minimalist in color palette and style. One trend I love in photography are beautiful images where at least 50% of the image is white yet the way they play with shape, shadows and texture creates incredibly appealing art. I tried to show exactly that in this moodboard, adding some fashion, graphic design and art.
If you know Julia Engel and her Instagram, blog and brand Gal Meets Glam, you’ll know exactly what this style is all about. I’ve seen a lot of images on Pinterest that have this romantic, joyful, optimistic, feminine vibe with the most beautiful colors: lots of blush pinks, pastel blues, lilacs and yellows. The elements that best represent it are florals, beautiful small towns, bows, nature, ribbons and more.
I love this mystical, enchanted universe trend I keep seeing on Pinterest. It’s all about wander, freedom, movement, stars, fairies, constellations, moons, witches and more. The predominant colors are gold, black, yellow and some pinks/purples. I love the organic shapes and the universe elements. It has a female perspective, a mix of fairy, enchantress and witch character.
