This year’s Decorex promises nothing less than the best trends in home décor and design. The essence of Joburg will be captured in this year’s ‘Make your space your living dream’ theme. The Decorex Trend House will be featured at this year’s Decorex Joburg, which will take place from 9 to 13 August. The Decorex Trend house will showcase the crème de la crème of this year’s lifestyle trends. It will certainly be a sight to behold. This year, Decorex will be collaborating with household brands to create an experience that will be enjoyed by all who will be attending Decorex. This year’s décor will inspire homeowners to create an atmosphere that is welcoming and warm, reflective of the pulsating Jozi energy. “There is such a vibrant, active energy that flows through this city and it was important to direct this movement into the Decorex Joburg Trend House, while bringing in the aptest of this year’s décor, design and lifestyle trends,” explained Anita Bloom, Creative Director: Lifestyle, Design and Retail Portfolio. “We are excited to be collaborating with @home, Plascon, Caesarstone, HAUS Homeware, Mobelli, Advantage Air, Plantation Shutters and Bang & Olufsen to name a few, which has really worked to create an enticing home space that represents some of the best design offerings this year.” Brightening Up the Home In these chilly winter days, it is important to incorporate design elements that will add warmth and sunshine to your home. What is trending this year is warm matt gold, black, anthracite & chocolate flatware by HAUS, with the Urban Jungle trend incorporated through whispers of green tableware and décor from @home. This trend will breathe life into your home by bringing the indoors and outdoors together to add a touch of comfort and fresh air. An incorporation of natural colours will also add to the warmth of your home. What you can expect to see this year at the Decorex Trend House is interior texture and décor inspiration with the use of wallpaper throughout the living area. The Pulsating Heart of Home The kitchen is one of the most important parts of a home. It is where you make wholesome meals for the family. It is where you gather to share details of the day. This year, kitchen designers Universal Kitchens and Granite will create a sophisticated and contemporary kitchen setting featuring the stunning new Hertex range of homeware from HAUS. This year’s finely-curated homeware collection encourages simple yet refined living. The Decorex Trend House will include Decorex SA co-sponsor, Caesarstone’s; their granite countertops will give visitors a unique insight into the brand’s latest colour palette which exudes intricate veins, bold colours and a variety of textures. Indoors Colliding with the Outdoors The bathroom is where the day truly begins. This year, the Tactility Trend will find its way into the bathroom as Sugar Plum Interiors exhibit the style and glamour they are loved for. Monochromatic colours, natural elements and sexy lighting are taking the lead with a special twist on the current trends saved just for the Joburg market. With the sunny Joburg winters encouraging outdoor living, Decorex visitors will be treated to the ‘indoors outdoors’ patio feature which encourages interior overflow into the exterior of the home, where comfort is key. “Joburgers love spending time outdoors on weekends, more so in their own home space as we don’t have the beach to escape to,” explained Bloom. “It’s therefore important to create a sanctuary away from your day-to-day indoor living space which is practical yet attractive.” The interior and exterior are seamlessly merged with the incorporation of natural materials, soothing colours and well-crafted patio furniture, creating an impeccable transition between the two spaces. Designer Furniture for the Modern Home Mobelli Furniture + Living is one of the companies leading the way in outdoor furniture design. They offer an amazing range of furniture that has been designed to withstand the elements. Their outdoor rugs add a touch of the indoors to the outdoors and add comfort to the terrace, patio and deck. Comfort continues with the introduction of outdoor swings, a Cosy Hovering Trend that lends itself to self-reflection within the serenity of the natural world, disconnected from fast-paced daily living. “Mixing and matching furniture is very popular and happens to be one of this year’s hottest outdoor trends,” says Bloom. “Personal tastes will dictate the outdoor style which can be made of an eclectic array of furniture sourced from various yard sales or second-hand stores,” she added. Sound and Lighting Modern conveniences are not forgotten with the incredible Bang & Olufsen wireless home system used throughout the Decorex Trend House. This system integrates the best in audio-visual modern technology to maximise the functionality of every room. To create the perfect atmosphere room by room through subtle yet effective illumination, the Decorex Trend House has been fitted with the Advantage Air MyLights smart lighting system. Controlled remotely, this energy-efficient, security-conscious technology brings to light the best of every décor feature throughout the home. With all its trendy décor and innovative design elements, the Decorex Trend House will inspire you to recreate your home. COMPETITION TIME Stand a chance to win double tickets to Decorex.
