Who doesn’t love the chance to peep into a stylish home? I’m a little obsessed with looking to see how others decorate and find it so inspiring to see everything from shoestring makeovers to show-stopping luxe. Fortunately for us all, #Houzzof2018 is on at 19 Greek Street in Soho until January 31st. Taking over a five-storey townhouse, popular platform Houzz are showcasing predicted trends based on what actual people are searching for and talking about when it comes to home renovations.
Here’s what they say about the exciting pop-up space:
The Houzz team have combed through the most popular searches and images (there are a cool 15 million-plus on the site and app) to predict what we’ll all be doing to make our homes more comfortable, stylish and spacious in the near future.
If you love snooping around other people’s homes, you’re in for a treat. Based around a fictitious family, this townhouse has been designed from scratch by Houzz professionals and top interior design studio Run For The Hills, and is crammed full of inspiring details. From the forest greens slowly replacing ubiquitous grey, to the hot trend for modern craft and retro 1970s touches, the house offers an unmissable snapshot of where interiors are heading.
I popped to a preview day before it opened to the general public and basically decided I’d like to move in. The entire space is totally inspiring, from wall colours to textures to furniture and everything in between. I especially loved the concept of making the most of all living spaces. With the cost of home-owning spiralling in many areas, we have to get increasingly creative with a smaller footprint and so the ability to live-work is all important. Segmented living is key with the bedroom having a work space as well as a traditional dressing area.
With at least one million photos taken (ok, I may exaggerate slightly), here’s what you can see if you pop along either today or tomorrow. It’s open from 11am to 6pm.
