If we can encapsulate in a sentence what the biggest trend in interior design for the new decade is, that would be: change and adapt or become irrelevant. So, say "goodbye" to Hygge and Ikigai and say "hello" to the 5000 year-old Korean concept of Nunchi.
Nunchi is woven into the fabric of Korean every-day life but for us, it can be defined as a word that literally translated means “eye-measure.” It’s the art of gauging how people are thinking and feeling in order to create connection, trust, and harmony. It’s related to concepts like emotional intelligence and situation awareness, but with two major distinguishing factors: Nunchi emphasises the room as a whole, single organism, and not just the people within it; speed is paramount to Nunchi.
This synergy between us as living organisms and our environment, the ambience surrounding...

Silvered branches, wisps of wood smoke and a frosty window pane… this year’s ‘“neutrals” come in the form of a palette of winter-morning greys, as illustrated by the atmospheric new collection at From Britain With Love. Little Greene has devised a new paint collection, with English Heritage, dedicated to the shade – “the root of historical decoration, used for centuries to create tranquil interiors” – from pale “wood ash” to the smoky “dash of soot” (from £19.50 a litre, John Lewis).

The White Company has elegant bed linen and towels in ash and grey pearl shades (from £13).
