Green is making a big comeback this year. From adding greenery to your home to overhauling the bathroom in green, the trend is to bring natural vibes into your home. We approve!
"Millennial Pink" is a design trend that has been hanging around for a couple seasons now. The hue has androgynous vibes that transcends design themes- fitting into glamour, retro, and even earthy looks.
PRINTS & PATTERN TRENDS
Love it or hate it, floral is back! This year you can expect floral chintz to be trending in homes & fashion. This traditional style is making a comeback with updated colors and a fresh take on the looks of the past. In moderation this trend can provide a fun addition to your home and certainly become a conversation piece.
Another blast from the past is here; tropical prints! This pattern genre has been making a strong come back in oversized prints on furniture, wallpaper, accessories, and clothing. The botanical vibe is taking over the design industry and can be worked into a variety of design aesthetics. Incorporating the trend is as easy as grabbing a palm leaf printed pillow or framed tropical print. Take it a step further by going dramatic with a leafy wallpaper!
FEATURED SPACE TRENDS
Stairways are getting some much-needed love this year! This small space can make a big statement with bold design and unique patterns on any budget. The stairs are said to be the dessert of the home- the sweet spot that doesn't take much to shine! Take your stairs up a notch with a carpet runner, contrasting risers, or a new railing.
The ceiling as the feature of the room? Yes, please! For decades homeowners have slapped white paint on their ceiling and called it a day. The reality is that the ceiling is a large canvas just begging for attention. Try a simple addition of painting it a fun color, step it up with a wood inlay, or go full on bold with a patterned wall paper. The styles to match your home are endless and it is an easy way to breathe life into a tired space.
The days of simply decorating a space in a matching color theme and adding in pieces without meaning are fading fast. The trend has been to curate a collection of objects that speak to the individual by providing a conversation piece or a sincere memento. There are a few rules to successfully executing this look; 1.) make sure to balance between vintage and new pieces 2.) add layers of textiles, patterns, and colors to blend the look 3.) be confident in your design aesthetic and make the space a personal work of art. This eclectic décor trend allows for a lot of creative freedom and to make your space truly and uniquely yours.
There has been a focus on creating a classic and simple space but allowing a few ornate items to make a statement. Taking part in this style is simple by curating inexpensive accent pieces that showcase your personal style and create unique conversation pieces. Consider placing an antique Persian runner in your kitchen instead of the traditional sink mat or create layers of varying textures with blankets and detailed throw pillows. You could take it to the next level and allow a custom vanity to steal the show in a bathroom with simple surroundings. We love this trend because it is so easy to translate into your personal style and can be an inexpensive way to update décor.
