On the Radar- Faces on Decor
It’s the new popular trend in interiors; abstract faces are everywhere! From furniture, home wares, artwork, décor accessories and even clothing, you see them on everything. It’s not altogether a new thing, faces in decoration. In the past they were limited to walls and perhaps tabletops, but these days they have migrated to practically everything else! Just look around and you’ll find vases, wall dressings, and soft furnishings staring back at you.
Let’s face it, since emojis became popular in every day culture facial expressions have become ‘a thing’, small wonder they’ve made a move from tech to the rest of life. Some might call it ‘creepy’ and they’re not wrong. Creepiness aside, I love that there are different interpretations of it; vases, planters, sculptures and other accessories with cute or distorted facial features for the quirky at heart, and flat linear drawings for the minimalists and perhaps the easily spooked.
Sure, it’s not for everyone, this trend is definitely one you love or hate. If you’re undecided, consider investing in smaller pieces that add interest to your décor but don’t overshadow other items. They’ll be easy to swap after you’ve enjoyed them for a while, plus you won’t break the home improvement bank.
So, what do you think? For those who dare, you’ll find décor items from this gorgeous trend on many international websites, and as they’re slowly growing in popularity in Australia you can find them being more showcased by major retailers around Australia. I’ve listed a few favourites here and where to find them.
