Trend # 8. New Poverty

May, 28 2019
This style is derived from several trends that have been popular in recent years. Interiors that are suitable for people who do not want to associate their lives with one place for a long time, and at the same time do not want to sacrifice for the sake of visual comfort.
This style is often associated with bearded handsome lumbersexuals, which is quite justified. They managed to reconcile urban life and interior elements traditionally used in country spaces, and to do it with their inherent sense of style and tact. They also have the courage to bring "new poverty" beyond the limits of kitchen spaces and HoReCa interiors and to decorate the living rooms as well.

In the "new poverty" there are echoes of rustic, country music — in its various formations — and Scandinavian. Wooden beams on the ceiling, plaster walls, birch plywood, unpainted stools and tables, primitive decor — everything seems to have already been seen and known. Difference is the balance that reigns in its most modern understanding.

Simple and unpretentious in appearance, the style of "new poverty" requires compliance with the rules. It is necessary to ensure that the general style does not "fall" into any of its foundations. It is better to take wooden and handmade furniture (often it is made by the owners of the spaces themselves), carpets are homespun, but without decorative excesses and in a calm scale. Sometimes it uses antiques and vintage, for example, dishes, but from the middle price segment. A hunt for furniture handles, lamps and "village" utensils is arranged at the fashionable flea markets in Europe. The main decor is plants. Let it a lot, a lot of plants! Ficus, monsteras, bananas — any living plants. In addition to visual beauty, it is also an eco-friendly solution.
