Fashion, beauty, decoration, are sectors of activity that regularly use style cabinets to anticipate consumer expectations. In recent years, the garden is not left behind! Thus the trend garden for 2016 has already been unveiled by trend-setters.
These professionals, thanks to a mixture of intuition and experience, are able to describe the tune of time several seasons in advance. Their job is to decipher the consumer society to identify strong currents before they occur.
Thus each spring, Chlorosphère , a style firm specializing in the garden and vegetable sector, draws outlines of the trend garden for the following year. From photographs , samples of materials , colors or palettes of plants , strong currents are described and illustrated. The professionals concerned, brands or trades of the landscape, have only to interpret them for their own uses! Thus, once the associated colors and harmonies worked, the ingredients of the future trend garden will materialize.
Chlorosphère has described 5 major trends for 2016. Among these, I have selected three arbitrarily and perhaps also because they seduce me more!
Pastel in the heart of the trendy garden
The trend ” Past’elle ” as it is called the style cabinet, is announced as a flagship trend that will affect all sectors of activity and not just the garden.
It displays retro and rather feminine codes . It is characterized by the softness of forms and the predominance of light colors. Powdered pink and water green are some of the star colors.
How will these elements be translated into the 2016 trend garden? These soft and natural colors will be easy to find in spring flowers , furniture , pots and other decorative accessories.
A touch of gold could also be inviting in this very feminine atmosphere to create an attractive contrast for both men and women!
The tribe invites itself in the trendy garden
Among the other trends that will be expressed in 2016, there is one more closely linked with nature and plants, it is the trend ” Trib’all “.
Here the codes are rather ethnic and warm colors and luxuriance are in the spotlight. Tribal motives and exoticism are investing the trendy garden in 2016!
What will be in our little garden? Natural materials such as wood or rattan will hold the upper hand. Textures and braiding will enhance the raw and authentic look of materials. As for the colors, they will play with the warmest tones like red , ocher or orange to evoke distant lands. As for plants, bamboos and decorative foliage, they will be at the center of the stage.
A style of atmosphere easy to imagine in a patio ( patio, small intimate garden ) or a courtyard nestled in the heart of the city!
A trendy garden with transparency
Finally, here is the most subtle of trends, aptly named ” Trans’Apparence “.
It evokes both lightness and mystery in a clever game of “veiled-unveiled”. Transparency and opacity combine to give better visibility. The glass and the aerial materials combine with the tones of white to invent a very elegant trendy garden.
How not to think of a garden design (the codes of the modern garden here ) or a Zen garden ( Zen garden codes here ) to implement this trend? Cut foliage and starry flowers evoking lace will easily find place. As for the decoration, it will be declined in a subtle range of whites : pearly white, bluish white or iridescent white will play ideally with the light!
Now that we know what we are going to love next season, all we have to do is grab the world that suits us best and interpret it to create our own little trendy garden ! And know that yellow is already announced as the star trend for 2017!
