Interior Design Trend for summer 2018: Cocooning



Have you heard of cocooning? This is a tendency originated from the 90’s consisting on relaxing at home and staying away from socialising. This trend, also known as nesting, is now developing into a new style of decoration aimed creating spaces for relaxation purposes.

Cocooning is used to create an enjoyable feeling of isolation, something that is very simple to achieve if we stay away from the busy cities and move into natural spaces, like rivers, lakes, mountains or beaches. We do not need large rooms; we just aim at promoting comfort and well being. We try to create relaxing spaces, mimicking the environment or bringing the peace from the outside into our living rooms.

We are proposing to take a close look at sostainable materials that do not conflict with the atmosphere that surrounds these buildings. A cottage, a rustic house, a stone wall or a fireplace are elements that allows us to stay away physically and emotionally from the frentic rythm of the busy cities.

This type of almost reclusive retirement is not something that we can enjoy every day, unless you have a home in the country. However, the cocooning style can also be applicable to you home in the city. You could also transform your space as a warm, comfortable and cosy environment that could be enjoyed with your family and guests, a place that you would not want to leave.

Light is a very important aspect to consider to achieve a warm atmosfere in your home, but special accessories, vegetation, souvenirs, unique crafts produced in remote places and DIY creations can also help to promote this natural and comfortable space.

Enjoy cocooning this hot summer season and experience your home like an oasis in the middle of the caotic city buzz! Don’t forget to invite me!
