ELEVATE Design Collective Embraces Design Detox
Designers from the six industry-leading home design brands that makeup the ELEVATE Design Collective, are sharing insight on how to simplify any room in the home in response to the need for all of us to disconnect from our busy lives, which has inspired an interior design detox trend, meant to bring an aura of serenity and simplicity to the home.
The ELEVATE Design Collective is a first-of-its-kind alliance of industry-leading brands including Delta® Faucet, Formica Corporation, Hunter Fan, JELD-WEN®, KitchenAid® and Schlage®, that have come together to bring home accents to the forefront of the style and design conversation in home remodeling and renovation.
"Design Detox is all about creating an environment rooted in simplicity and free from chaos and stress. Your home should provide a sanctuary from our modern hectic lifestyles," said Ted Roberts, Schlage's manager of industrial design.
"Minimalist designs and décor can help you achieve this look and feel, and it can be easily accomplished by updating home accents such as door hardware, unique ceiling fans and kitchen items" Roberts said.
A design detox doesn't mean a space turns into something empty and cold; rather it's a way to evaluate current design influences within the home.
The ELEVATE Design Collective designers suggest the following:
-Choose furniture, appliances, and even doors dominated by clean lines to help create a calming effect. Look for sleek lines that accentuate clean, square and rectangular décor.
-Use what would normally be considered an accent piece as a statement piece. Consider one-of-a-kind mirrors, lighting, and unique designs as a muse. Upgrade fixtures with unique offerings such as brushed steel finishes.
-Let texture take center stage by using monochromatic palettes.
-Use neutral colors that shift away from cooler tones in favor of warmer shades, or off neutrals, like deep earthy tones with Southwest influences.
-Bring focal points back to the basics, letting a fireplace reclaim its spot as well as flat screen TV's that hang above them.
-Take inspiration from the everyday and bring outdoor elements inside.
-Create interior green spaces or utilize folding window systems that eliminate the separation between the outdoors and the interior living space.
