‘Slow Decorating’ the New Name for Intentionality in Your Space

May 26, 2023 | community, interview


“Slow decorating” may be a new name, but the philosophy isn’t new, adds Rachel Nelson, CEO & principal designer for Detroit’s Concetti.

“It’s the repackaging of an old idea,” she explains. “There have long been two schools of thought –  either buy investment pieces that you’d like to live with for a long time (and possibly pass on) or quick fix trend following.” She, like many interior designers, is a proponent of investing in key pieces and keeping them. This is something she tries to follow in her own home, which features a mix of new items and repurposed heirlooms.
