Trend Edit: Earthbound
Introducing Earthbound – the undisputed trend-of-the-moment. Brimming with beautiful botanicals and fresh spring hues, this new season style is as pretty as it is versatile. Based on natural tones, fibres and finishes, Earthbound additions will blend seamlessly into your existing décor, enhancing existing items with their subtle yet enchanting details.
When it comes to dissecting a trend, who better to ask than the person who formulated it? We sat down with our Textile Designer, Tori to discuss all things Earthbound.
Taking it back to basics, we started with the colour palette. “It’s all about tranquil tones,” she explains. “Calming greys, soft sage greens and muted dusty pinks.” Almost feminist in its tonality, the collection “celebrates women through flowers.” Now, isn’t that a lovely thought?
In fact, the trend itself is based entirely on wellness. “Coming out of a busy winter into a fresh change of season, it’s time to slow things down and take a minute to reset, refresh and focus on feeling good,” says Tori.
It’s hard to ignore the overarching botanical theme, evident in everything from cushions to table linen, so prints are the next item on the agenda! Instead of the usual array of daisies, roses and other more traditional spring blooms, this year, it appears to be all about the natives! “Earthbound pays tribute to our natural environment. Taking note of local flora from proteas to wattle, paying homage to Australia at its finest.”
You’ll also find yourself drawn to the incredible eyelet embroidery Remnant of a different time, this trend is a modern throwback. “Derived from broderie anglaise, the eyelet trend creates an element of nostalgia. Taking us back to our childhood, textures often bring a sense of comfort,” Tori continues.
Now that the trend represents so much more than just beautiful designs, we’re willing to be you’re all the more intrigued. If you’re looking to introduce a subtle, earthy feel into your home this spring, you’ve come to the right place. Drift off to sleep amid a sea of soft tones, delicate details and light layering; create a fresh bathroom oasis dedicated to pure relaxation, and come home to an utterly liveable entertaining area fit for spring events to come.
