Would you like to turn your home into an oasis of calm?Joined by architect Roisin Murphy Driving time We discuss the latest interior design trend, “house hash.” Listen back above.
Just like with fashion, trends emerge in the way we decorate our homes, whether it’s dopamine decorations or Barbiecore. Now new trends are emerging and hinting at what we want to use our homes for.
Home tranquility refers to making your home quiet, peaceful, and as free from hectic activity as possible. But Murphy said this is a “move on from the Marie Kondo trend of decluttering, which is incredibly beneficial and fun, but also a nightmare.”
“But the other thing that’s tagged with this is actually something quite alarming called ‘quieting the house,’ which means making the house quiet.” She added, “It’s a little I thought it was something to be concerned about,” he added.
Making your home quieter, she says, “includes resetting mechanical noise and installing new carpeting or textures.” [in]That’s completely understandable, but the idea that a house is quiet is because most people think that a house is inherently full of noise, full of life and humans. ”
Especially for those of us who live in cities, sometimes only separated by floors or brick walls, noise is both inevitable and sometimes even comforting. Murphy said living in a city is about “learning to tolerate each other’s noise, so I think encouraging noise like this in your home can be very dangerous.” Ta.
But decluttering is a “special” habit that can really calm your mind. “But alongside decluttering, there are two things that are involved in this kind of trend that I think are really important.
“You have to realize where everything is going. Everything needs to be moved to a second home or bought or sold.” He notes that very little of it was recycled, or at least reused for other purposes.
She added that “one good thing” is coming out of this trend. “Your mess, where does it go? Where is the social responsibility for cleaning up? And don’t buy it. It’s really hard, but we have to stop consuming. yeah.”
Adding to this, she adds, is pushing back against hyper-perceptions of obsolescence and throwing out items that seem a bit outdated, whether they’re still usable or not.
If you’re looking to make some changes to your home to make it less “noisy,” Murphy mentioned that there are new paints that use microbead technology that can actually quiet down the noise in your home.
Probably less hassle than resetting the beep on every machine.
