The Trend Edit

Distressed Surfaces

Perfection can be found in the imperfection, and there’s nowhere this is more true than with distressed surfaces. Worn earthy textures and washed out shades of cool blues and greens form a growing trend where timeworn interiors reveal a new inner beauty.

With its organic undertones and soft appeal, this trend offers a nostalgic alternative to the shabby chic look, where lived-in and relaxed interiors are sought after.

When it comes to accessories, combine your distressed surfaces with soft geometrics and irregular shapes. Where possible work with ombre effects, encouraging fades from one tone to another. Keep your lines blurred and gentle, as though time has worked its magic for interior that’s aged magnificently.
