Trending reports are always on my radar! Here are the top 6 of my own design trends to watch for this spring. These ones aren’t going away!
The trend of performance fabrics is pretty basic, but not to be overlooked. Pay attention and incorporate several of them in your next redesign or new design. Your room will sing with #purestyle!
Performance fabrics make using light (even close to white) upholstery a real option for often-used seating. Be it dining or family room, all of the sudden it’s perfectly sensible! Crypton fabrics are the newest introduction. Found in solids, textures and patterns, this newest introduction to market is the answer to pets, grandchildren and teen hangout areas! They are soft and pretty, found in a wide range of colors. Oh, happy day!
Just another place you may want to try these performance fabrics. The master bedroom at our house is a movie, snack-and-drink kind of place. It’s the perfect answer!
These beautiful vessels are just one way of showing this never-fail trend. Mixing metals with leg finishes, lighting choices, accessories, lamps and mirrors makes perfect sense. Don’t limit yourself with all silver or all gold …find your perfect mix!
tile an accent wall
Accent walls are perfectly stylish again, and who doesn’t love an entire wall of tile? Horizontal, vertical, subway, mosaics, mirrored, mixed metals … there’s plenty for the taking. Big box home decor stores and fine tile stores alike offer a plentiful selection with more choices than you may want! Master bathrooms, powder rooms, water closets, art niches … I can find multiple places to design using these beautiful tile accents.
Here’s a few favorites I’ve used in some recent projects:
I’m pretty much hooked. I think you will be too.
THE most popular medium currently trending for kitchens and bathrooms alike is quartz. Easy maintenance, keen copycats for Carrara Marble, stain resistant … all the best reasons to use quartz. Subtle veining to shimmery accents, light to dark, quartz is taking center stage. Try mitering the edge of your island to create the look of a double thickness. You’ll find it a bit more expensive than granite, but well worth the look and function. Go for it.
Most of our favorite granite yards are stocking slabs of quartz for you to choose from right on site. It’s a win-win.
add a midcentury touch
The midcentury trend is deeply entrenched in much of today’s design. Your mother’s dining room set, coffee table, or “his and her” chairs are in great demand. Hopefully, you put your name in for a few of these beauties to restore and use in your home! If not, there are plenty of reproductions to make a great modern statement in either a corner of your room or an entire home! This style plays well with most modern mixes and today’s timeless classics. Most rooms can benefit from a touch of midcentury glam.
I placed this new kitchen set in my daughter’s home this Christmas and it was a big hit with every member of the family as well as visitors!
These are my picks for home design trends to know! We are always trying to design timeless rooms, using trends that won’t be dated before the paint dries. I hope you’ll find my tips useful. Select several to add into your own personal design and enjoy the delightful ride of personal style!
