“Someone once said, “If you ever want to make God laugh, tell Him your plans.” Well, that statement reigns so true for now and the future. I believe the future of design is headed in reverse. Clean, white palettes, a stronger focus on biophilic and cultural design in the home, and a deeper appreciation for how your home can function for everyday life rather than be “pretty.”
