Design Trends

Crackling wood in a fiery hearth paired with a hot cup of tea, a knit blanket, and a gathering of good friends. Sounds like the final scene in a Christmas movie, right? Well, that’s hygge, the Danish lifestyle trend that’s blown up over the last year. Roughly translating to “cozy,” hygge is all about living a harmonious, happy, and relaxing life by indulging in the comforts of home. Think fuzzy blankets, nubby sweaters, sweet-scented candles, and warm, delicious treats. The Danes insist that hygge is a way to live all year long,

Fashion and interior design are like two close friends who like to copy each other’s outfits. When one is favoring neutrals over vibrant colors, the other is too. So as you might imagine, there were lots of trends walking the runways at New York Fashion Week that we’re already picturing in our homes.

This year, we’re expecting to see the trend dancing from the edges of throw pillows, draping itself over lamps, weaving it’s way into upholstery, and even showing up in some unexpected places. From dainty, bell-like tassels to relaxed, boho leather threads, fringe is back

Which means all the décor and design inspirations we’ve obsessively pinned over the past 12 months are quickly becoming obsolete. Don’t panic – mid-century furniture and marble surfaces will always have their place, but fads like chevron and macrame have had their moment. From celestial symbols to a modern take on tile, these are the new trends that will replace the old this year. Swans are the new flamingos. We’re all about a little bird decor,

After a brisk jog and a green juice this morning, we meditated, signed up to volunteer more and decided that we were finallllllly going to get around to investing more. Oh and budgeting. And no more impulse shopping. Also, meatless Mondays. Ooh and maybe we’ll clean out the closet. But a few weeks into the new year, our Netflix queue is calling, we’re back to hitting the snooze alarm and who left that pint of Ben & Jerry’s in the fridge?!  Staying motivated

Though unfortunately, we can’t predict everything that’s written in the stars for 2017, we can use our design knowledge to deduce which home trends are on the rise. Some you may recognize from the past few months and some might feel brand new. But if anything’s for sure, it’s that we’re looking towards a bold and beautiful new year. The Hot Color: Green Pantone recently announced their

When it comes to interior design, minimal, white spaces loaded with plants still dominate our Pinterest feeds. But we’re beginning to see warmth enter those spaces through earthy tones and new textures. Our current obsession? Terracotta. From tiles to pots to wall colors, going natural never looked hotter.

Bring on the moonlit walks, candlelit dinners, The Notebook! But when it comes to decorating, it gets tricky. How do you set the stage for romance without going too girly?  What’s the line between boudoir and brothel when it comes to the bedroom? We’re here to show you how to embrace your inner romantic at home without going overboard. 1. A neutral color palette and minimal patterns are key. While red and pink are great for roses, they’re

Image via El Ramla Hamra A living room without a coffee table is like a car without a steering wheel — it just doesn’t work. Where else do you eat dinner while marathon-watching the Bachelorette? Or display those sweet hardcover books you haven’t gotten around to reading? If sofas are the anchors of a living room, then coffee tables are the centerpieces. Not only do they fill awkward space, but they can add a surprising dose of creativity to a room when you opt for something a little different. From vintage chests to drumsets,
