Soft Landing Style Trend

Strokable greenery
Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

This style trend is about a soft landing , or society, but primarily in our immediate surroundings. With so much chaos in the world outside, we want everything at home to be friendlier, softer, and more beautiful. A place where we can be safe and comfortable, like being wrapped up in a warm blanket.


In the interior this trend leads to all things soft: soft colours, soft materials and soft, sometimes wavy forms of flowers and plants. Here and there folklore-related details point to a historic or ethnic origin.  


In the garden this trend translates into an environment where you can happily walk around in your bare feet. Just as in the interior, mosses, grasses and soft, velvety leaves create a sense of comfort and softness. The colours are also soft without becoming too twee.  


The shapes are soft, rounded and have delicate curves. Materials that are essentially hard also appear soft thanks to their finish.  


Pastel colours alternate with creamy shades, pale lilacs and nude colours. If you’re looking for a colour accent, add cheerful orange.  


The materials used look welcoming, as if you can tumble into them like a freshly-made bed. Therefore you see a lot of padded materials and fluffy (sheep)skins or furry materials.  


The patterns are also soft. Quilted, padded or patterns with feathers. We also see subtle folklore influences.
