Intelligent technology is a key influence for this trend, particularly the type which aids people’s health and wellbeing. This trend responds to an increased interest in the impact of colour in design and its links to mental wellbeing. Adopting elements of colour psychology theory in interiors can help lift people’s moods and aid health. Using iridescent and semi-transparent materials in a myriad of pure, crystal-like tones creates hyponitising overlays of multiple colours.
“Crystal is a trend all about light, transparency and reflection. Sharp edges and crisp shards of colour where lines and angles meet echo what happens when light is refracted. Materials are glass, mirror and metal – anything that has a shine or lustre for a sleek polished look. Inspired by these surfaces, colours include soft luminous blues that reflect light balanced by deeper navy, teal and charcoal.”

Inspired by the effects of lights of changing colours and augmented reality, the result is a dreamy space of escape using crystal hues of aqua and navy. Creating an ethereal world an escape from reality.
“Clarity, purity and wellbeing are key elements behind our Crystal trend. Highly polished and sleek furniture on a backdrop of crystal-like colours overlaid with translucent materials creates a dream-like space you can submerge your senses in. You are somewhere between a dream and a futuristic reality, a safe bubble from the harsh world outside.”
Justyna Korczynska – Crown Design Studio
“This trend is pure, clean, sleek and highly polished. It captures the layered look of coloured translucent materials created by using tone on tone colour. It was important to capture iridescent elements through the props and for the styling to be crisp and extremely modern with sleek, highly polished translucent glassware. The ides of cleanliness, calm and Hues are tonal: cool blues with an intense cobalt and aqua to highlight.”

“This clean reflective palette combines mineral tones that define the facets of an interior space. Its purity identifies and creates dynamic forms where furniture and accessories become sculptural objects within its crystalline boundaries.”
