The inspiration comes from a rustic country cottage with a thatched roof, or a boathouse on a beach, sand dunes and desert ravines, sunsets over the ocean…

Handcrafts are also very much on-trend. Skills and techniques are not appreciated just for their charm, but because the old age traditions and process are often more sustainable.
