Trend Week: Garden Trends for 2010 – Design Styles

1/04/2010

It’s that time of year where we all start making predictions about where we are going and how we are going to get there.  I am completely fascinated by trends and have a full line up of trend related posts for this week.  The first is based on a report from the Netherlands that predicts that garden trends will be influenced by the financial crisis:

“The garden industry can look forward to a good 2010, as consumers are indicated to spend more money to bring ‘cosiness’ around the house. Trends have always been influenced by economical, environmental and political tendencies. For 2010, trend watcher Ms. Aafje Nijman predicts imagination, creativity, romance and intimacy will become keywords to inspire garden designers and hobby gardeners.

“Garden suppliers have little to fear of the recession when offering contemporary products and good communication,” Ms. Nijman says. “Contemporary is a sign of optimism, which translates into bright colours.” The urge to distinguish oneself from others will become a hot issue, which offers opportunities for niche products.

“In the process of developing new products, nature is the greatest source of inspiration. Furniture, pots and other decorative products will have a more natural and more traditional look. Designers will try to pour tradition and authenticity into a contemporary style. Ms. Nijman indicates three distinct style trends in 2010: the classic ‘Exuberant romantic garden’, the imaginative ‘Bohemian spirit garden’ and the status sensitive ‘Closed transparent garden’.”

These images are some that I thought fit what I imagine is the spirit and look of the trend, but to be honest, it is just my interpretation.  I am especially not sure if this is what is meant by a closed transparent garden? What do you think? Do agree with these trend predictions? More 2010 trends tomorrow.

    I love it when someone crafts a good term of phrase to describe something amorphous I’m trying to do. “Bohemian spirit garden” — exactly! I am designing a New England version of a bohemian spirit garden in my backyard. Thanks for posting.
