“I love adding natural elements into my own design work, and when used in modern spaces, it creates this really compelling and dynamic contrast. Woven baskets, rattan furniture, and decorative wood objects are all ways I've added that organic feel to an interior. I also see a lot of textural elements like grasscloth wallpaper, woven pillows, or handmade ceramic tile. And, of course, plants are a wonderful (and beneficial) natural addition to any space."

In the quest for balance and harmony in today's tech-driven age, Genevieve Gorder emphasized the importance of reconnecting with nature. From incorporating plants as essential accessories to celebrating outdoor spaces, designers are embracing natural elements through various mediums like wallpaper, color palettes, and materials.

"I think in the tech-tastic age that we are living in, an age of new, sterile and colorless products we are searching hard visually for earthiness for nature. Plants have become a must-have accessory, natural textures are craved to balance out the smooth synthetics we hold all day, outdoor spaces are celebrated and coveted by everyone. Designers feel all of this and play through wallpaper, color palettes, and material." Genevieve Gorder

Genevieve also discuss how nostalgia might play a role in shaping contemporary design trends. While acknowledging its significance in preserving history and happy memories, she cautions against blindly recycling past styles without innovation. Instead, she advocates for a selective approach, where designers reinterpret the best elements of the past to create something fresh and innovative.

“…I think nostalgia works best when we dissect the best pieces of what we’ve created previously and make something new vs just copying what we’ve already done.” Genevieve Gorder
