What can we look forward to in interiors?

Clean lines and coastal spaces have been the timeless trends in interior design, offering a sense of simplicity and tranquility. However, we are finding that clients are embracing the importance of their individual style and self-expression. We encourage our clients to infuse their spaces with elements that reflect their unique personalities, interests and experiences. We like to focus on spaces that feel authentic and tell a story.

Why is this becoming popular?

In a world filled with mass-produced and generic designs, clients are craving uniqueness and personalization in their living spaces. Embracing individual style allows homeowners to express their creativity, showcase their interests, and create a sense of authenticity and belonging within their homes. It provides a way to break free from traditional design norms and create genuinely one-of-a-kind spaces, fostering a deeper connection and sense of ownership over their living environment. We love our job, as every client is different and has their own personal style.

What are some good examples?

At The Custom Creative, we believe great design should be accessible to all. That’s why we offer handcrafted pieces at affordable prices, without compromising on quality. We are working on some new designs of our own, and expanding the products we offer, with more material choices and colour. Bedroom furniture is next on our list. Our current products mainly focus on the bathroom, but our goal is to always move throughout the spaces of the home and use pieces that are functional, stylish and affordable to everyone. We provide a wide range of options that cater to different aesthetic preferences and personal styles, New Zealand-wide, with the option of a click of a button on our website – straight to your door. If you are in Nelson, make an appointment to pop into the studio at 48 Vanguard Street to meet owner Meg and creative director Leigh.

“Individual home style is becoming more popular as people seek to create spaces that truly reflect their personalities and lifestyles.”
