Trend & Inspiration

We are interested in what fabric can bring to life. This journal is a celebration of the lifestyle, culture and design that influences what we do.

In December 2019, Pantone released their 2020 ‘Color of the Year’, Classic Blue. The victor of this highly anticipated annual announcement is described by Pantone as a “reassuring presence instilling calm, confidence and connection”. We believe (now more than ever) this relevant offering brings comfort to the strange new world we’ve all recently been introduced to, and our willingness to evoke these very emotions in our most intimate and personal of spaces reflects this. 

Within our busy and hyper-connected lives we all need a tranquil space within our home that is cocooning, nurturing and restorative. There is nothing more satisfying than retreating to your bedroom in the evening or whenever you need - who doesn’t love a sneaky afternoon siesta on the weekend!

This intimate setting offers plenty of opportunity to create something aesthetically pleasing for quality hibernation, restorative meditation, or restful sleep. 

A theme can be a powerful unifying way to start your bedroom interiors refresh, whether you prefer restrained simplicity, or plush luxury, there is a look to suit your taste.  Here, we have put together 10 key pointers to revitalise your bedroom. A guide to help you have some fun on a grand thematic scale, or just a simple weekend project update.

Humans have enjoyed wool for over 10,000 years and it continues to be a coveted textile in both high end fashion and interior design due to its many qualities. Here we deep-dive into the wonderful world of wool, sharing the tale of this ancient fibre’s origin, production and inherent attributes. 

Over the next couple of months, the Mokum studio is going to regularly connect with the market via weekly IG live sessions, streaming every Tuesday morning at 10am AEST on @mokumstudio. Here they will share their textile industry knowledge and lift the curtain on the brand’s bespoke design process, which is often a hidden part of the business. They will discuss all aspects of their design and development process; from initial concept stage, through the various stages of developing original drapery, upholstery and wallpaper designs, right through to the final marketing. In doing so, we hope that both the specifier and consumer can better understand, and speak to, the true bespoke nature of the Mokum brand’s development process and better recognise the value of their artisan product.

Our product designers build their vision and design cues through being in-tune with dominant global trends and how they are translated into our local culture and environment. Inspiration comes from a variety of channels such as international fashion, product and interior design, art and architecture and attending key trade and lifestyle events.
