Beauty, comfort, and convenience with minimal damage to natural resources are entirely in the spirit of the times, especially today, when it is so important to take care of our planet’s safety.
Eco style originated in the 90s of the last century and has changed insignificantly during its existence. Today it is still based on the following principles:
All the principles described above are quite specific, and it is on them that eco-style trends are based, which can change over time. In 2021, this design trend has become one of the most popular, which means that it is worth learning more about what it offers for the actual decoration of a house or apartment.
Eco-style color palette 2021
The selection of primary colors for such an interior is still not difficult. These are still shades that are as close to natural as possible. A gray-brown tone of bark, a variety of earthy brown shades, smoky white, sandy, blue, pale yellow, a little black, and a wide variety of green variations form the basis of the eco-style. However, in 2021, it is proposed to dilute the usual palette with new, no less attractive, but slightly brighter tones:
In the decoration of walls, floors, and ceilings, practically nothing has changed: it is challenging to create something entirely new from what nature offers. Nevertheless, you will still be able to add a couple of touches to your design project with the prefix “eco” – and with the help of the following materials:
The modern eco-style is exceptionally wary of wallpaper, since today vinyl and non-woven coverings, recognized as environmentally unsafe, are mainly used. If you want to use them in the interior, you should try to find real paper wallpapers. At the same time, it is worth moving away from bright unnatural ornaments and clear geometric patterns in favor of a discreet and natural design with plant motifs. Non-toxic, light paint and plaster also remain a universal solution for wall decoration in an eco-interior.
Just as there are lighting scenarios in all interiors, eco also implies a landscaping scenario. And it’s not just about arranging live plants in pots, tubs, and hanging pots – it’s all part of a plan to create a peaceful and serene environment that also includes the following elements:
Light for everyone
A lot has already been said about the importance of lighting for an eco-style interior. However, unlike other design trends that offer a balance of natural and artificial light, scenarios for it include solutions that allow you to take care of the room’s vegetal decoration.
In this case, we are talking about phyto lamps, thanks to which optimal conditions are created for the growth, development, and maintenance of indoor plants’ health. Until recently, it was extremely functional equipment, but today manufacturers offer lamps with an unusual design that can become a harmonious detail both in decoration and in terms of lighting.
New technologies for eco
Eco-style today is unthinkable without environmentally friendly technologies. Heat recovery systems, solar systems, and condensing boilers, biogas as fuel and heat pumps, wind turbines, and solar panels cease to seem like something fantastic, and engineers are proposing more and more new developments. So, in 2021, supporters of eco-design will be able to appreciate the following novelties:
