Trend Report

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,

But it’s time to show a little respect for your elders because granny style is back in a big way. After years of minimalism, we’re loving this return to pattern heavy, knick-knack filled spaces. So start hunting for floral wallpaper and break out your crochet needles, because what’s old is new again. Flower Power Will florals really ever stop being a thing? We think not. Go full-on grandma with a

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. From rich colors and luxe fabrics to bold statements that echo world affairs, these are the looks to take to your living room.

Lately, we’ve seen the puffy coat not only stake its claim on snowy streets but also in chic homes, restaurants and bars in the form of couches, banquettes, pillows and more. Though this plush and bulbous furniture style can easily be compared to the puffy coat, it’s better known as channel tufting in interior design terms. And we’ve seen the style reemerge in more ways than one. Whether it’s

But the surprisingly versatile material is making a serious comeback. In addition to adding a dose of natural warmth and texture to a room, cork absorbs sound, is fire resistant, waterproof and incredibly durable. Oh, and did we mention, eco-friendly?  Read on for our favorite uses for cork in the home.

Trend Report: Fringe Is In

Originally used for furniture as a way to keep textile trims from unraveling, fringe has itself to many a decor trend, from Victorian lampshades to hippy 60s curtains. 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,

For those of us who aren’t exactly green with envy for Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year, rest assured that there are actually nine runners up that you’ll likely fall in love with in the new year. Taking cues from the hues on the runways of New York Fashion Week and the color experts at Pantone, we’ve got your hot colors for 2017 (spoiler alert: kale isn’t just a trendy salad ingredient anymore). 1. Primrose Yellow It’s been a dark and contentious 2016, so we’re all looking for a little sunshine in the new year. That’s why

Image via Architectural Digest In the wild world of at-home bartending, bar carts have ruled the roost for years. Sure, they’re mobile, perpetually chic and make great accent pieces. But we’re ready for something a bit more permanent. The 1970’s saw the birth of the built-in wet bar, fueling many of our parent’s or grandparent’s craziest cocktail parties. However, these integrated drink stations typically lacked personality. But today, we’re beginning to see a revival. And it’s much more stylish than its dull, dark wood and brown leather predecessors. Tropical Tastes

Though we wouldn’t be completely opposed, we’ve never seen someone rock a tartan scarf in the summertime. And even in the home, we think plaid is best left for the cooler months. But the spaces that do wear their checks year round, wear them well. So here’s to our favorite winter print and the homes that do it best! The Checkered Blues Cool blues paired with black and white
