Autumn/Winter 2021: "Balanced Biotope"
Balanced Biotope inspires you to create a natural environment where you live more consciously, in balance with nature. The trend focuses on the use of natural materials (such as stone, wood, bamboo and cork) and colours (such as shades of green, grey and sand). Patterns are rough and mainly based on natural textures. Plants are of course a crucial part of this Trend Collection and they are central both indoors and outdoors. A few plants are no longer sufficient - think instead of an indoor or outdoor border or natural sculptures with palm grass. And whether you have a large garden or a small balcony, strive for great biodiversity and try to create your own biotope even in a small area. Houseplants that we see a lot of this season are begonia, cambria, grasses, primula, peace lily and alocasia. Outdoor plants include winter violas, holly and chamaecyparis.
Spring/Summer 2021 "Crazy Illusions"
The recent pandemic gave the the online world a significant boost, with all of us spending more time than ever in the digital world. As we spend time on the internet and less in the physical world we become more and more demanding as consumers, while at the same time needing to be flexible in our lives and work and be seen to be going with the flow. This sense of illusion and reality comes together this season in "Crazy Illusions". This style trend is the result of the limitations that we experience as a society, and the huge desire we feel for pleasure, freedom and creative space - just like the hard times during and after the First World War which were followed by the roaring twenties.
The Crazy Illusions style trend brings in a new, fresh look and focuses on vibrant colours, eye-catching designs and metallics. Twisted shapes and the ever-present roundness of circles are also popular this season. Plants that fit perfectly with this style are Medinilla, Bromeliad, Calla, Philodendron, Hypoestes, Fittonia and Rhipsalis.
Autumn/Winter 2020 "Inner Retreat"
We live in a busy, uncertain world. Our lives are shaped by outside influences, and we are subject to ever-present and ever-more demanding stimuli in the shape of our smartphones. This season, we respond to our environment and use nature to create a space for peace and calm. Our focus is on soft textures, pastel tones and friendly shapes. Think of plants such as Beaucarnea, Kalanchoë and Eucalyptus.
