FOUR WAYS TO BRING THE HOTTEST INTERIOR TREND INTO YOUR APARTMENT THIS YEAR
Designers and interior enthusiasts alike have branded ‘Spanifornia’ the hottest homeware trend for 2022 – combining the uber-chic yet laid back Californian home aesthetic with Spanish style home accessories.
Yasmin Atkinson Resident Services Manager at Grainger plc’s The Filaments shares four top styling tips to get the ‘Spanifornia’ look in your own apartment – when terracotta tiles and large DIY projects are not an option.
“Give a white-walled apartment a Spanifornia inspired facelift with wooden accents to create a relaxed and rustic vibe. Wooden home pieces and accessories such as vases, baskets and rimed photo frames and mirrors are the perfect finishing touches to evoke the new trend and create a high-contrast effect, whilst adding a touch of traditional Spanish style to your home”
Rust and Terracotta
“By incorporating warm tones which ooze memories of Spain, you can easily transform a neutral room to an effortlessly chic Mediterranean-luxe space. Try adding rust or terracotta soft furnishings such as cushions and throws, to bring the hottest trend into your home and create a cosy Spanish haven, despite cold temperatures outside.”
Rough Hewn Rugs
“Spanish homes are known for their beautiful, decorative flooring. A great way to integrate Spanifornia without altering the existing floor is to add rough-hewn, statement rugs. Cali-inspired rugs will give the space a bohemian feel, whilst adding texture and layers to the home, as well as warmth underfoot.”
“The Spanifornia trend centres around breathing life into your home, so what better way to bring life to a room than with vibrant house plants and greenery. Combining greenery with warm and rustic accents will give your apartment a sense of calm and opulent charm.
“The Californian Snake Plant is a great way to feel the cool Cali vibe in your home. Known to be super easy to grow indoors and simple to maintain, the Californian Snake Plant lasts a long time without water – so no need to stress if you forget!”
