Cocooning: Your house, your best refuge - Disak

Maybe with the word cocooning you do not know what we are talking about. But, if we say that this word refers to those people who love to be at home and, above all, enjoy it, you will remember it for the future.

It is also sometimes used nesting (nest: in English), but really the trend is called cocooning.

This word was coined in 1990 by Popcorn, a trendsetter and defined as “a trend in which the individual socializes less and less and retires to his home, which becomes his strength.”

The word comes from cocoon (cocoon in English, by the action of hiding) and is a trend that is on the rise, as the rise of the Internet and content platforms significantly influence.

Are you a cocooner? Surely you practice cocooning …
What are the keys to know that you practice cocooning? Here are the following:

Carefully care for the decoration of your home, to make this your favorite place where you can relax and disconnect. At Disak Studio we like to help our clients to achieve timeless and warm spaces.
Before going out there, you prefer that your house be the meeting place with family and friends. To do this, you take care of all the details to be a good host: well placed table, crockery, …
Inside your home you have your favorite place. A corner that is special for something: light, no noise, …
Especially in winter, you think that the best plan that can exist is to stay at home to rest, read, watch television … with some candles. Is there a better plan?
Despite these issues, practicing cocooning does not mean being an asocial person. Simply, prefer your house as a meeting place.

Spring: what do you bring to the decoration?

Yes, it is already spring and this year we have won it because the winter has been long. But, with this new season, in addition to better temperatures, new colors and new trends in decoration arrive.

We have reviewed some low cost decoration brands and found some trends that spring leaves us. In addition, they allow to build timeless spaces. Then we discover them.

Spring: ideas that leaves us in decoration
Natural tones: powdered rose, makeup, … combined with white, beige and even terracotta. They are ideal combinations to make the most of natural light.
Natural elements: the introduction of plants, few but of a considerable size are introduced in spaces such as living rooms or terraces. In fact, Zara Home inspires its new line in botany.

Modernist and minimalist touches with simple lines.
The rustic spaces become protagonists. Combined with natural elements and materials such as wicker, the result is spectacular.
Golden with caution. Although we consider that gold is a trend that already said goodbye to us the previous season, there are brands that still introduce decorative elements in this color. If you like it, go ahead, but with some restraint.
Our house has to become an oasis of peace and tranquility.
Do you want to take ideas? Then you have to come to Casa Decor 2018, it is the largest and most important interior design exhibition in Europe. In each space there are proposals from professionals where the trends of this spring are collected, but you will also find timeless proposals.

From Disak Studio we have opted for a room that we have called “Estar de Lujo”. A timeless, elegant and masculine space where the quality of materials has been one of the main premises.

Kokedama: a green touch arrived from Japan

A green touch always comes well to any space. Plants bring joy and vitality to any home, but it is true that, like any other living being, they need care.

Some time ago we talked about indoor plants and how to insert them in well decorated spaces. Today, we bring you something very different: it's called Kokedama and it comes directly from Japan.

Kokedama: a different technique

But what is it? The Kokedama is a plant that is grown on a ball of moss, adding substrate and does not have a pot. This technique is directly related to the cultivation of bonsai, due to the small portion of land that both need to grow.

Unlike bonsai, kokedamas do not need much care. You can also buy it or make it yourself: you can mix three parts of peat with one of clay substrate. This mixture has to be moistened to be able to form the ball.

Once the ball is made, you must make a hole and introduce the plant you want (indoor plants are recommended). Then, you must cover the moss ball.

How to maintain it? It is very simple: you must put the ball in water once every two weeks in winter and once a week in summer. Also, it is not good for natural light to have a direct impact on the kokedama because it would cause the moss to dry up.

Due to its round shape, it is very visually attractive and you can even hang it if you fit it into a network. They take up little space and you can even play with the size of the different kokedamas.

Undoubtedly, many tendencies often come from the East. Not only the kokedamas, also screens or photons and minimalism have expanded rapidly by decorating spaces in the West.
