sustainable living collectivist blog

IN: SUSTAINABILITY (LESS IS MORE)

"Being strategic and purposeful about purchasing behavior is a key ingredient to a sustainable ethos. From the initial question of, 'Who you are purchasing from and what values do they stand for?' to 'What type of materials are used to build each item?' To complement and highlight special pieces, we believe in designing an impeccable foundation through the use of timeless materials, ultimately resulting in bones that evoke emotion whenever you're in your space."—Becky Shea of Becky Shea

 eclectic maximalism

OUT: ECLECTIC CLUTTER

"When a space has too many things going on–to the point where you can barely utilize a surface area for function–it creates chaos.
We love eclecticism, and you'll see it in a lot of our designs, but what we don't love, and hope to bid farewell to, is eclecticism on steroids. The inability to use design for function is one of the biggest caveats we see with this aesthetic. Everything you invest in should have purpose, and we see 2019 shaping out to be a year of reduction and purpose in the items used to style, so say goodbye to eclectic clutter!"—Becky Shea of Becky Shea

biophilia, collectiviste lighting

IN: BIOPHILIA

“For 2019, there is greater interest in biophilia–emphasizing the relationship between humankind and nature, and the connections between the two. Natural, organic materials–such as wood floors, stone, and daylight and plant life–remind us of the exterior and brings the outside and nature, in. We are machine- and technology-driven society, but nostalgic about past processes and handiwork, so opportunities for custom Millwork and crafted materials are very important.”—Angie Lee of FXCollaborative

macrame

OUT: FIBER ART

"One trend I think may need to take a rest in 2019 is fiber art everywhere, but especially in the bedroom. I love a good weave as much as the next person, but as we have hit a saturation point, we are veering dangerously close to macramé owl overload of the 1970's." — Amy Sklar of Sklar Design

 

sustainable handmade in collectiviste blog

IN: SUSTAINABLE, HANDMADE PIECES

"Items made by hand using sustainable materials like jute, rice paper, and clay will be in, in 2019. We see people needing these grounding elements in their homes as a way to feel more in touch with the earth and their roots." — Kristen Peña of K Interiors

 

 mid century

OUT: MID-CENTURY EVERYTHING

"I love the look of mid-century furniture, but when I see a space outfitted entirely in this one look, it can sometimes feel like it’s in a time capsule. I’m a passionate advocate of mixing up your decor styles. It makes a space look so much more interesting and layered." — Nicole Gibbons of Clare

Finding it Difficult to Find the Right Lighting for Your Home? - Why You Should Tear up the Rule Book and Trust Your Instincts!

Tear up the rule Book and trust your instincts! Lighting buying guides are boring and they almost all say exactly the same thing! So, rather than do what is expected of a lighting company, we are going to stick our flag in the sand, do a bit of jargon busting and share a few honest opinions, we might even chuck in a few do's and dont's!

Improve your lighting, improve your sleep
Improve your lighting, improve your sleep

Our body’s basic rhythms, in particular our sleep and wake cycles are rely on light exposure. Production of the all important sleep-inducing hormone, melatonin, is key in our preparation for sleep. However, melatonin suppression caused by light is at the heart of much of the research linking nighttime light to sleep disorders and even poor health.
