Interiors: Sanctuary Trend
CREATE YOUR OWN SANCTUARY AT HOME THIS WINTER
Moving on from summer's "Artist’s Atelier" interior design trend, décor for winter 2020 is about getting back to basics, spending time with family and switching off from hectic urban life.
Home takes the form of a secluded retreat, somewhere between a tree house, an architectural pod structure built on the edge of a big lake and a neo-nomadic bivouac. Decorated with natural and organic materials like wood and light colours, the distinctly wintry looking space is made to feel warmer with the addition of sheepskin, natural leather and thick throws contributing to a cosy and relaxing atmosphere.
In his bubble
Since everything goes fast outside, the desire to stay at home is felt in order to recreate a place of serenity and calm. Like the Danish philosophy of "hygiene", the winter trend invites us to focus on ourselves and the essential rather than on the outside world. Digital detox, reconciliation with nature or refusal of the superfluous are the new principles of a way of life that privileges convenience and simplicity__.

The clean but cosy interior
In terms of decoration, the "Sanctuary Trend" feeds through into stripped-back interiors and the use of raw materials like wood and stone. The streamlined colour palette focuses on natural and neutral shades like white, sea or spruce green, beige, red ochre and chestnut brown, enhanced by the flood of natural light into the rooms.
But simple doesn’t have to mean plain in this humble but inviting environment. Candles, snuggly blankets, pelts, rugs, soft cushions and plants help fill the home with positive energy.

The room invites you to serenity, with its wooden bed facing the horizon and its minimalism almost monastic. The bathroom has a modest style, while the kitchen and dining room become the central rooms promoting for festive dinners and meetings with family or friends. The matt brass, monolithic terracotta, wooden utensils match on the table, a nod to the herbarium spirit, as if the hosts had deposited the leaves and flowers freshly picked in the morning in the forest.

Spotlight on two guest brands
Tinja promises to take you on a journey around Tunisia through the creative vision of the Sfar family, to discover handcrafted Tunisian treasures alongside the men and women that still produce them.
