As we drift closer to prime season for home renovation, it’s time to look at what’s happening in the everchanging world of interior decorating and design. While some trends have come and gone in the blink of an eye, others are still going strong. Thankfully, the painful clutter of the “found artifact” scene is fading away while concepts like Zen-like white minimalism and the subtle influence of mid-century modernism remain popular. With this in mind, here are a few of our favorite items for renewing your living space. Ligne Roset When it comes to living room furnishings, the days of choosing between ultra-modern and tastefully traditional are long behind us. Combining the new and old can be tricky, and certain furniture lines have it figured out perfectly. A quick skim through the Ligne Roset sofa and armchair catalog reveals a broad selection of sleek home furnishings that clearly pull influence from some of the Danish design greats without coming across as purely vintage pieces. In particular, the Cosse sofa, designed by Philippe Nigro, features a gorgeous blend of clean lines and interesting textures that add an air of warmth to an otherwise stark exterior. Sofa from $5,205, loveseat from $4,230 and ottoman from $1,465. ligne-roset.com

Lumid/Firelab The modern and minimalist fireplace is by no means a new trend, though interior designers continually push the boundaries of how large a footprint one can take up. Curved fronts, flames that rise through water and sealed units that shed next to no heat to the outside of the glass are just a few tricks modern fireplace builders have up their sleeves. In business for 25 years, Lumid/Firelab worked on custom fireplaces in all sorts of applications from the massive private residence install seen here to the roaring cauldron of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. Its in-house R&D team spent countless hours developing proprietary systems to ensure no matter how large a client’s demand, the end product will reach if not surpass high expectations. firelab.com

European Commission Outlines Plan to Reopen Europe

People need a “chance to get some well-needed rest, relaxation and fresh air.” This is a sentiment we all likely share, as does the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. The EC included that phrase when it released its plan to help reopen Europe following the COVID-19 global pandemic. While most EU borders remain closed to international travel until at least mid-June, the EC’s plan starts with inter-Europe travel, and are non-binding recommendations and guidelines. European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”
