Home Design Trends // Farmhouse Sinks

The farmhouse sink has been gaining in popularity recently, in part because of its sleek look that goes well with transitional and even modern designs. The farmhouse sink, also known as an apron sink, has a deep basin and evokes an “apron” like feel with its exposed front panel that sometimes extends just beyond the counter top and cabinets. It provides an excellent focal point in the kitchen while still emulating a cozy feel, and is quite handy for avid cooks (or their designated dishwashers)! We love that it is available in different materials and colors, making it a seamless and functional fit for any kitchen.

Home Design Trends // Ceramics

Picking up on a boho vibe, hand-thrown pottery and ceramics are enjoying a resurgence in home decor. Ceramics of any shape or color are great pieces to beautify and accent any room. You can also go trendier by choosing textured ceramic pieces like vases, candle holders, or lamp bases that come ribbed or decorated with patterns like scales or flowers. Whatever your preference, there’s a wide selection there to choose from.

Home Design Trends // Tin Ceiling Tiles

The lovely textured ceiling tiles found in Art Deco jazz clubs and landmark drugstores are inspiring designers to put an old-world spin on modern spaces. They can be used in any room in the house to add a classic and timeless appeal and can be purchased anywhere from Armstrong to a flea market if you’re looking for a vintage option.

Home Design Trends // Black Kitchen Accessories

On the heels of our last trend piece that featured Black Hardware, we’re expanding on the black accent trend and highlighting kitchen accessories. Black accessories add a moody accent to the kitchen and like the hardware, look great in an all-white kitchen, as they provide an edgy contrast.

Home Design Trends // Black Hardware

Move over brass and copper, there’s a new metal shade taking the wheel. Black hardware with a matte finish is having its moment. From sink faucets to sconces to cabinet pulls, black hardware feels unique and special and looks incredible against white such as marble. Take a look at the inspiration images below with your own home in mind.

Home Design Trends // Layered Rugs

Layering area rugs is an easy way to add color and texture to your floors, while bringing dimension and interest to a room.  You can layer multiple rugs to create a custom size or if you can’t afford to get the large area rug you really want, buy it in a smaller size that you can afford, and put an inexpensive large rug down as the base. It’s also a easy way to incorporate mixed patterns and lend a relaxed bohemian style to a space that can easily be changed up later.There are no set-in-stone rules when creating this look- just make sure the bottom rug pokes out below the top rug to show off the layering effect.

Home Design Trends // Wire & Mesh

The industrial look continues to be a popular trend for interiors and recently there’s recently been a huge influx of wire and mesh furniture and accessories coming on the market. It’s stripped-back structure and subtle appeal that mixes well with any era or design style, makes it the perfect addition to any interior space. We’ve seen such a variety of pieces that we love, from woven tables and mesh chairs to light fixtures.

Home Design Trends // Tufted Furniture

A trend we’ve been loving lately is actually an older look “vintage” look, that’s suddenly new again- tufted furniture. Revived to compliment a modern home by using slightly modified designs along with new colors and materials, tufted furniture comes in a wide range of styles, shapes and forms. From headboards to sofas, to ottomans, pair a piece with your existing home decor to add visual interest and create a look of comfort and familiarity to any room.  Tufted furniture seems to invite you to sit, relax and even take a nap on it!

Home Design Trends // Industrial Chic

While formerly reserved for the likes of exposed brick lofts and industrial condo spaces, the industrial look has woven  its way into the mainstream and homes of both urban-dwellers and suburbanites. With simple shapes and raw materials like galvanized steel, glass and reclaimed wood, the look can be easily incorporated into your own home decor. The beauty of this look is that it’s versatile and fits in well with both traditional and contemporary spaces. Take a look at some pieces below that can easily be woven into existing designs and still make an impact.

Home Design Trends // Textured Walls

We all know that paint or wallpaper can transform the look of a room, but so can one of the latest new trends in home decor- textured walls! Whether you go for wood planks, stone or grass cloth, any of these materials will add amazing texture and depth to your space. Textured walls also offer interest without closing in the room with too many accessories or bright colors that you’ll likely grow tired of. Consider creating a textured focal wall in your entry, living room or master bedroom as seen in some of our recent projects below:
