So let me tell you more about my exciting weekend at the Design Fair “Interiør og Boligmessen 2012 in Bergen. I’ve seen a beautiful city (yes, it´s even magical in the rain..), tons of lovely interior, and even more fantastic and interesting people! Wow, it´s great to be a blogger and to be able to attend to these kind of things.. *smile*
On Saturday I took part of the debate called ”Tomorrows interior bloggers – the taste makers” together with Ideas to Steal, By Fryd, Design Shimmer and trend researcher Gunn-Helen Øye and lead by talented and colorful Dagny from Fargerike. Dagny says that she sees a professionalisation of interior bloggers, who through these channels has been a strong and an important voice that both creates and reinforces trends. So we all have to answer a few questions related to this topic.
After talking about how much bloggers can influence current trends or styles we had all made a collage of what we thought would be the trends in 2013, representing our own style. This is what I think we will see more of next year.
I think (and hope) we will see more minimalism, darker colors, plywood, marble, copper, gold, brass, art prints, geometric shapes, diamond shapes, and that we will invest more in good design and see personality in our homes.
What do you think about next years trends?
One extra thanks to Trude and Heidi who made us bloggers feel special at the Design Fair in Bergen – let´s hope that THAT is a new trend.. *smile*
