One of the most refreshing interior trends to emerge for this year is the intergalactic inspired Cosmic Connection look. Spotted at Maison et Objet and already adopted by some of the finest names in the industry it is also tipped to be huge on the runway at the upcoming AW15 catwalk shows around the globe. Blasting away the traditional interior style, and set to bring glamour and aplomb to homes and wardrobes alike in 2015, we take a closer look at this trend and choose our top picks to get the look for your interior now.
At first glance, this trend may be a little too out of this world for some. Planetary inspired designs and lunar like motifs may sound a little retro and lacking in the finesse of a more mainstream interior scheme but once you look at the scope of designs and patterns available it’s hard not to become enamoured with the Cosmic Connection style.
There are two facets too this look, and they can be combined or maximised separately depending on preference. There is the scientific style planetary inspired prints and designs and then there is the glamorous galactic style stars and colourful patterns. The latter takes its inspirations from the fashion set, and is a great choice for those looking for a more adventurous interior style. Leading the frontier on the planetary theme is the Diesel by Seletti collection of Cosmic Diner plates. Sending all of the interior editors into a frenzy these coveted plates are a defining range for fans of this trend.
Christian Lacroix Maison is the go-to brand for the glamorous galactic look, with several fabulous designs that will inspire any space, from soft furnishings to stationery. The Cosmos cushion is another key pick for this look, investing in a few of these will ensure a tired sofa or bed are given an instant intergalactic uplift.
There are several wallpaper collections available this season that are ideal for adding this trend to your home. Cole & Son’s latest range the Whimsical Collection has been inspired by fairy-tales and memories from youth, but there are a few designs that encompasses this trend. The designs are perhaps more night sky and twinkling stars than multicoloured cosmos, but that can be ideal if you are looking more a more subtle take. Osborne & Little also have several star-based patterns which can be a great addition to any space for a little cosmic touch.
Textures and colours also come into play with the Cosmic Connection trend, it is all about mixing high impact metallic shades and glossy surfaces. As much of the trend uses darker shades and bolder colours adding light-reflective surfaces will help to break this up. Lighting is also key, and there are plenty of unique lighting designs that will help bring together this look, especially the other-worldly style of Vita Lighting’s range of shades.
Whether you add planetary plates to the dining table or a colourful hint of the galaxy to your sofa, look for key pieces from the Cosmic Connection trend to take your interior through 2015 and beyond. Discover more trends set to be huge this year in our Maison et Objet trend report.
