FAMILY INFLUENCES
I hate to rain on your parade, but for all you minimalists out
there, this was first introduced by the Art Deco movement,
brought about by new materials such as Bakelite, which have
now been replaced by plastic/acrylic and composite products
such as Corrion. So, in fact, your design style was more than
likely achieved by your Granny.
The wonderful printed linens on the market originally date back
to Georgian times and some manufacturers are even using
archived designs but slightly re-coloured. The ‘60s influence is
also prevalent but, to date, the avocado bathroom suite hasn’t
re-emerged (hang on to it if you have one though as I have
started to see the re-appearance of coloured sanitary ware!).
I think we all have to accept that there is probably no such
thing as design innovation and comfort ourselves with the
fact that our personal style is just an interpretation of what
has gone before. And that we will be the inspiration for the
next generation.
