Giveaway: Best of Interior 2018 Book

Posted By Gudy Herder / October 4, 2017 / 63 Comments

Callwey‘ s Best Of Interior 2018 book is out. You might remember the past two years I had participated as a jury member together with Igor and Ricarda selecting the best blogger homes we considered should be featured.

This year the concept has changed including architects and interior designer who submitted their work too, so did the jury, and you can expect to find an interesting mix of styles and budgets.

Giveaway Best of Interior 2018 Book via Eclectic Trends

The launch took place last September, and during the event I was giving a trend lecture on Lifestyle Trends 2018 (if you are subscribed to the newsletter, you will see a few images from that day). During a following panel discussing I had much fun moderating, I asked Bettina Billerbeck, editor-in-chief of Schöner Wohnen, Retail Manager Annaelena Tietjen from Bolia, Viki Kitzig, Architect from Kitzig Interior Design, Jules Villbrandt, photographer and art director from Herz und Blut, and Tina Schneider-Rading, author of the Best of Interior book, which of these 2018 trends are already integrated in their professional projects. Just to give you a quick insight on one point they all would agree on: glamour is back big time with rich dark colors and noble materials, being velvet, brass, fine tanned leather and marble key players.

One of my burning questions was if they would share ‘secret’ sources of what has been inspiring them lately or where they get information from to stay updated. These were the answers:

1// Trade shows and design events

Salone del Mobile London Design Festival

2// Print and Digital

Interior magazines such as Elle Decoration UK, InsideOut (Australia), Nytt (Norway), Vogue Italia. Illustrated books about artists like Pablo Picasso where you can get a glimpse on his home. Society Family featuring cool & smart families online.

3// Public Spaces

Recent open hotels in any larger city, preferably by independent hoteliers (did you see the last post on this topic?). The Tate Modern in London and its extension commissioned to Herzog&Meuron which will be a new landmark to the city.  Material libraries such a ConneXion.

I hope you find a couple of new names here or go back to same source you haven’t visited in a while (loved the idea of browsing in artist’s books checking on not so not-obvious insights. I mean, who reads a Picasso book looking for interior inspiration?).

    Hay muchas formas para conseguir buena inspiración. Todo en realidad me inspira en el día a día pero un libro es un libro… tiene algo de especial. Pasar página a página. Foto a foto. Marcarlo con post its sentir el olor. Es como una experiencia tradicional. Nada que ver con la experiencia digital con la que tengo que trabajar en el día a día. Una fotografía en un libro te permite viajar en la imaginación tumbada en un sillón con una taza de té. Me encantaría conseguir ese libro. Best J
