What is Escapism in Interior Design? All You Need To Know

Boost your mood as soon as you return home with the interior design trend, Escapism. More than ever before, people are wanting to create a space where they can embody that ‘staycation’ feeling of bringing the outside in and creating an extension of their interior in their garden.

Danetti Designer, Francesca explains: “It's the idea of creating a space where you can go to relax at home, but it has those luxurious elements you would expect in a boutique hotel.”

Key components of Escapism in Home Design:

  • Use authentic materials that nod to earthy and natural elements

Foliage and plants will add texture and depth to different spaces in your home thanks to the movement and interesting shadows they create. As well as adding a focal point and visual interest, these different textures will contribute to how the room looks and feels as they reflect and absorb light differently. Placing natural and earthy elements, especially tropical plants, at different heights will add to that feeling of escapism as the greenery will surround you from different angles.

  • Showcase memories from your travels around your home

Using ornaments or finds from your vacation will add to that holiday feeling at home. If you’ve visited all kinds of wonderful and colourful places, these ornaments and collections from your travels will add personality and glamour to the space. They tell a story in themselves and that adds to the fairy-tale escape feeling that the space can create.

Danetti Designer, Damien adds: “People now want their spaces to be more individual too – there’s a big movement on individualism and being more eclectic in what you have in your home, whether people have pieces from their travels or items they’ve collected that they can scatter through their decor. It’s just about merging them all and creating a kind of balance.”

  • Create your outdoor oasis at home and turn your garden into a luxury escape

This season, it’s all about making your garden an extension of your home and bringing your style and the comfort of your interior outdoors; from creating the perfect space for outdoor living with daybeds and sun loungers, to configurations and styles that work for entertaining and hosting with modular corner benches, outdoor kitchen set ups and fire pits. Bring the comfort factor and that homely feeling outside by creating a multi-functional space that works for all your summer needs.

Designer, Francesca says: “I’ve worked in Europe and the international industry is a lot more forward thinking when it comes to outdoor furniture because they have such warmer weather, but here in the UK and particularly with our Danetti designs, we’ve really considered those finer details so that when people step outside, they can almost feel like they’re walking into a hotel bar within the comfort of their own home. Perfect for enjoying time with family and friends.”
