Design Trend of the Month – Byron Bay Style
Celebrating slow, purposeful living and the raw beauty of natural aesthetics, this month’s design trend embraces the lifestyle lessons hidden within Byron Bay style!
Lifestyle lesson: De-stress by harnessing the healing power of nature and greenery.
Lush, tropical surrounds require lush, tropical plants! No matter where you call home, you can be sure to find jungle plants that create the perfect tropical oasis, whilst still thriving in your select climate.
Some plant suggestions include:
- Monstera deliciosa
- Mosses & ground covers
- Trailers and climbers
Wood, rattan and stone
Lifestyle lesson: Ground yourself through natural materials.
Byron Bay style champions natural material choices; when choosing furniture, look for pieces that make use of wood, rattan or stone. However, when purchasing natural pieces, be sure to ask for the care instructions; some are hardy enough or specially treated to withstand the elements, while others are best suited to undercover patios or outdoor rooms.
Outdoor bathing spaces
Lifestyle lesson: Remember to slow down and prioritise self care through revitalising rituals.
Capture the resort-style freedom of Byron life with an organic bathing space!
Start your day off with a morning shower surrounded by gentle sunshine; wash away the work day amidst a light afternoon breeze; soak away the toxins under a striking sunset or blanket of stars. Therefore, by installing an outdoor shower or bathtub, you can indulge in a revitalising, cleansing experience whenever you need, promoting a slower, stress-free lifestyle.
Lifestyle lesson: Celebrate creativity and individuality through carefully crafted pieces.
Unique craftsmanship is the name of the game with decor, furniture and serving ware. Champion the creative industry in your home through:
- Earthy ceramics
- Shell mosaics
- Raw stone finishes
- Unique woodwork or metalwork
- Custom textile prints and patterns
- Handmade items
Lifestyle lesson: Embrace the flair of interconnected cultural aesthetics through eclectic statement pieces.
Additionally, you can use soft touches of bohemian flair to continue the artisan flavour; some popular items that harmonise well with modern schemes include:
- Kilim rugs
- Indian silks and throw cushions
- Carved wooden furniture
- Wall weaving and tapestries
- Turkish lamps and lanterns
- Macrame hanging planters
- Moroccan outdoor feature tiles
White linens and upholstery
Lifestyle lesson: Sometimes, less is more.
Finally, to make a hero of the artisan craftsmanship and eclectic designer details, keep larger furnishings and upholstery light and fresh. This will create a clean canvas for other features to truly shine, as well as fostering a calm, yet radiant atmosphere.
Casual outdoor seating ideas
Lifestyle lesson: Kick back and indulge in moments of rest amidst the hustle and bustle.
Forget stiff upright chairs or formal seating arrangements; Byron is all about the chill factor. The following relaxed seating options will help you kick back and get that much needed R&R:
- Hanging chairs
- Day beds
- Floor cushions
- Love sacks
