Trends forecaster Li Edelkoort has once again consulted her crystal ball. So what does she see in home design for 2012? The most prominent theme is Lanscaping Interiors. Ms. Edelkoort predicts that we will continue to live “closer to the earth” by blurring the line between interior and exterior environments. Shown here, Grillage seating just as much at home indoors as out. Light and airy in metal mesh. Also shown, Conico tables made in stone or marble then polished and finished with a water-repellant surface – use indoors or out.

She sees lighter, more mobile furniture – capable of being reconfigured with ease. People seem to enjoy mobility within the home – eating meals in changing locations, napping on a daybed.The use of contained plants, rocks and pebbles will be popular.

Fabrics become more prominent – used liberally, valued for added softness and tactile nature.

While colors of the earth figure prominently: pebble grey and green, so do bright colors take from the tropics. Go out on a limb with an uncoordiated color.

Animal themes remain. Up next birds and rabbits. Shown here, Pan Pan decorative rabbit by Barabara Kuehne- Thompson for Ligne Roset.

Animal themes remain strong - get ready for rabbits
