If there is a scheme we've seen dominate as of late, it would have to be one that belongs to an earthy palette
. Our primary source of inspiration comes in the form of all that is naturally-derived—think terracotta, clay, and various other textured materials, lava rock included.
Late last month, at the Collective Design Fair
, Brooklyn-based contemporary artist Fernando Mastrangelo
exhibited a seriously stunning display dubbed "The Dream." And true to form, it has been quite a challenge getting that one out of our heads. Featuring sand cast wall tiles, and matching tables and consoles, it was the ingenious blend of material and color that established this exhibit as the show-stopper that it is.
Channeling the palette and earthen-inspired details of the scene, we turned to a handful of our favorite artists and makers, with the intentions of recreating bits and pieces of this. Now, it's not necessary to implement the trend in the most literal sense of the form. Be fluid with your design decisions and embrace the elements as a source of inspiration. Read on to get the scoop on how we'll be bringing this inspired look home.
