As everyone looks to the new year ahead and the trends that will define it, we’ve noticed one comprehensive theme across the interiors spectrum, that of Sophisticated Restraint.

Propelled by the need for creating serene spaces, light wood, neutral colors and soft lines are dominating design right now.

“I have been seeing more and more organic shapes and biophilic designs in showrooms and publications from hand-thrown clay tabletop accessories to soft, neutral colors,” said Jessica Shaw, Interior Design Director at The Turett Collaborative. “This trend is growing because people are looking for comfort. We have all been through so much in the past few years.”
