Callas for tranquil interiors

'Slow Life' is a style trend that is part of the Green Sector Trends 2025. The trend alludes to erratic times when it can be necessary to reduce the size and manageability of the world. Home is where people find connection, safety, and trust in their little bubble. By doing this, isolation and hardening in surroundings lessens as well. Both the environment and health of your home are essential to maintain an overall well-being, and that includes having flowers as part of your slow life living nowadays.

Slow Life in Interior Design

It is said that many around the world are opting to adopt a 'slow living' lifestyle, reckoning slow mornings where people are starting to take their time to do things they love and nourish both their minds, bodies, and the environment they live in — a.k.a. 'home'. The Slow Life trend seeks to fit in and view the outside world logically while incorporating those things that are good (flowers), do good (flowers), and make you see good (flowers, once again, among other things, of course!)

The main features of this interior movement are serenity and organic materials. Warm, pastel, and natural colors complement traditional home products, which are used with care. Another notable characteristic of this trend is the use of simple, recognizable shapes, and here is where calla lilies play a key role when it comes to decorating your interiors with a type of flower. Callas are indeed the perfect option for describing a simple shape that comes in aesthetic colors both neutral and stronger colors that could give a white-colored interior a touch of contrast but always seeking the delicacy of this trend.

The interior thus has a calming, sustainable character. Flower arrangements stand out because of their pastel-colored combinations and their quiet presence, and plants in soft leaf colors and variegated leaves are also seen around embellishing spots around a home.

The majority of the materials used in Slow Life are natural, sustainable, and friendly to the environment. This further demonstrates that designs do not have to be ostentatious. Simple checks, stripes, and the organic patterns of flowers, leaves, and branches come to mind.

Colors That Make Up a Slow Life Interior

There are two components to the color scheme used in this interior design trend. One side features a row of delicate pastel colors, mostly meant for flowers and plants, like light pink, nudes, whites, lilac, and light blue. These tones can be then flanked by colors such as ochre, yellow, green, and burgundy. For the tranquil interior, there are also neutral brown tones and light greys. As you can see, the trend gives you several options to play around and see what you like best for your ambiance.
