Nostalgia Trend


Nostalgia is defined as; ‘a sentimental longing or wistful affection for a period in the past’. With the rise of retro furniture and terrazzo inspired spaces. At this years Maison and Objet we saw a huge uprise of interiors revolving around this whimsical trend.

The Nostalgic trend boasts of, vivid and pastel colours with the well known statement colour of Millennial Pink. With the rise and fame of the director Wes Anderson, his cinematography style has heavily influenced this trend. With the directors approach on colour pallets and use of symmetry.

A huge trend that we’ve been seeing all over the world is the revival and use of Terrazzo tiles. In natural or coloured pieces, its everywhere! One design studio in Australia has showcased this in ‘The Budapest Cafe’ located in China. The use of the pastel colours and terrazzo offers a colourful yet minimalistic approach to the space.
