As noted by the WSJ in the article “The Secluded Island Hideaways for America’s Rich and Famous“, the upper class are creating a new trend in real estate. Casting aside the idea that bigger is better and the most important thing is to be seen with your wealth, these individuals are choosing a more intimate and private lifestyle.
Will these real estate trends also translate into interior design and furnishings? With the rise in popularity of modern minimalism, the answer seems to be yes. The old ideals of flashy, sparkly furnishings and short-term trends at home are on the way out, making way for strong design and quality in intimate settings to take the lead.
