The interior trend with the highest search volume is line art – it’s not surprising that people have been looking to jazz up their walls while being at home for longer periods of time and this cool trend is seen on in the homes of many an interiors influencer.

Meanwhile, the trend which has shown the greatest increase in search volume during lockdown is rattan furniture, with searches increasing a whopping 809% during lockdown compared to the start of March. This is likely a combination of people who are looking to enjoy their gardens during lockdown alongside those investing in the trend of rattan furniture indoors.

I’ve always loved the look of a living wall. There’s no denying the impact they make with all of that green lushness cascading down vertically. A veritable jungle of living, breathing life-enhancing richness. But I’ve always thought that they are either best kept outdoors, or only for shops and bars. I couldn’t imagine the amount of upkeep that would be needed with watering, pruning, misting, etc. Plus the inevitability of some of those plants dying and making the whole thing a bit of a tangled mess. And then I saw the living wall kits available from @horticusliving which you could say, are a bit of a game changer. #linkinbio for the blog today. . . . #greenliving #interiordesign #interiorstylingideas #livingwithplants #indoorplants #livingwall #livingwallplanters #stylingwithplants #bringtheoutsidein

Industrial design decor is an enduring trend that you can embrace on different levels depending on taste.

No nonsense stems.. no water and no maintenance.. just throw them in a vase and forget about them!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 2 years ago i filled my home with loads of big plants and now i’m secretly hoping they will just all die, so then i can replace them with my dried blooms and wouldn’t have to feel bad about forgetting their fortnightly bath (for the past few months! 😬) Instead they get a little bit of water when i remember. It’s enough effort bathing ourselves, never mind the plants too!! 😬🌾🌿⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ •⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Featured here are cute yellow billy buttons.. 10 stems per bunch and now available to buy online – link in bio!!
