Boho Chic

What is boho chic? Well, it’s kind of a mixture of everything from modern and vintage to eclectic and classic. Think flea market finds meet bright colored patterns, multiple textiles and earthy accents.

All of the (Dark) Greens

Straight off the fall 2016 runway, green very well may be the fashion and the home décor color of the year. Sophisticated and luxe, yet down to earth, this color trend allows you to stay neutral with furnishings and accent pieces while still making a bold design statement.

Jewel Tones

With a dark green color palette, how could we leave out the rest of the jewel tones? We saw jewel tone inspiration in Pantone’s 2016 home color design trends, and the rich shades of amethyst, sapphire and emerald are shifting into the new year.

Marble Accents

Part functional, part artwork, marble has been making its way from the boundaries of kitchens and bathrooms to coffee tables, kitchenware, lamps, candleholders and vanity accessories.

Upholstered Headboards

Up the coziness factor and tie together your bedroom décor with this long-holding trend.

Velvet Renaissance

Velvet is making its comeback. While you may be thinking a tufted velvet sofa will look “stuffy”, there are tons of ways to incorporate this trend into your home décor like drapes, ottomans, chairs, throws and bedding. The key is keeping velvet balanced. It can appear formal and heavy so try to keep your other accents light and fresh.

Cork Sustainability

Sustainable meets function in cork paneling. And it’s not just for bulletin boards anymore. Cork is a renewable, dust-eliminating, waterproof and fire-retardant material, and it’s a fun way to change up your wall finishing. Utilize cork paneling in your home office or entryway for a versatile, compelling and useful wall surface. 

Reflective Surfaces

Mirrors are a powerful accent in making a small room appear larger and a dark room appear brighter. Use reflective surfaces like a mirrored coffee or console table and couple it with light metallics. 

Mature Pastels

Paint powerhouses like Behr and Sherwin Williams have released their 2017 color trends that include dusty-hued pastels like mint, rose, sage and muted grays, which all pair beautifully with marble.

Faux Fur

From throw pillows, rugs, furniture and throws, faux fur has been making a comeback for years as design trends away from industrial and leans toward luxuriously cozy. A faux fur piece adds a statement and is a great way to cozy up your home for winter. Just be sure to limit your furry accents to one or two per room to avoid looking over done.
