Autumn is in full swing and soon the leaves on the trees will be a mere memory. A new season brings new trends and colours that find their way into all the nooks and crannies of our homes, including wall murals. Autumn and winter’s furnishings and colour schemes are darker than usual; the white that has been the base colour in our homes for so long has given way to darker shades and dirty pastels. Nature plays a big role in this season’s interior design. The muted tones come from Mother Nature’s colour spectrum and are combined with natural-looking structures such as wood, concrete and marble.

The Zen interior style actually did not originate as an interior design style. It was based on a philosophy that aims to clear and relax the mind and body. Zen is a way of life. It is an intensely personal, severely pared down search for meaning that elevates simplicity to an art form. Zen is the philosophy of the minimalist. It makes use of natural materials, patterns of light and space, and almost clutter free space. The interior design style aims to create a space that is relaxing, contemplative, and visually balanced and appealing.
