Trending: Navy Is the New Black

Just right for smaller spaces or any room requiring a touch of drama, navy is surging as a top color trend for 2017. It’s as versatile as black but not as harsh. An inky blue accent wall looks modern and sensual, and a navy-and-white combo can lend some nautical whimsy to a coastal home. Look to patterned tile to lend a focal point to bathrooms. But don’t stop there: For a quick update, incorporate navy-hued accessories into a home.


Trending: We Admire Wire

Forget about overwrought patio furniture or quaint bed frames, the trend toward wire furniture brings modernity to any room or space. The look mixes well with wood, as seen in this dining table and coffee table, and accents like these ottomans and storage baskets add scriptural artistry to otherwise functional pieces. Even lighting gets wired this year, a big trend that takes up little space – a perfect for fans of minimalism.

Trending: Ceramics Are Dynamic

Ceramic accessories are affordable, quirky and oh-so-fun to style. You’ll covet the latest crop of ceramics found in modern collections of vases and love how hanging ceramic pots spotlight greenery. We believe the revival of ceramics coincides with consumers’ desires to personalize living spaces with accessories that spur organic connections to nature – a trend found in ceramics with earthy, artisanal finishes just perfect for spotlighting a posy or two.







Invite the Great Outdoors into Your Home

In announcing its color of the year, Pantone lauded Greenery for its “vitality of nature and new beginnings.” We recommend refreshing tired surroundings or calming busy interiors by bringing the soft, desaturated tone into your environment. Greenery answers the call for simplicity and evokes the grounding of nature, making it the ideal color to redefine a room. Almost every brand of paint incorporates a color like Greenery into its palette this year. Some of our other favorite ways to introduce Greenery into your environment include throws, furniture and appliances.

We love using throw pillows in a variety of patterns and colors to a sofa or bed to add interest and color to a room.

Home Design Trend // Family Friendly Coffee Tables

Finding the perfect coffee table that works for the whole family and is stylish is just what this trend is about. When designing homes for families, it is important to find beautiful yet family functional coffee tables. Check out some of our favorites for some inspiration.


The classic coffee table is big enough for everyone, extra storage and it’s easy to clean. Now that is family friendly.


We think this coffee table pulls the room together, it provides extra storage, more room for decoration and a flat space for kids to do homework on.


Round tables are great if you have little ones running around, no sharp edges! Plus this one has additional space underneath for storage.

This type of coffee table is good for a big family or for families with a lot of friends, it can be one or multiple tables for homework, eating spaces or whatever you need.

Using a unique material adds flare but it also has a softer texture for any kids who might bump into it.

Home Design Trend // Leaf Prints

Who doesn’t love feeling like they are on a tropical island? This trend will have you thinking you’re sipping on a pina colada in no time. Large leafy prints, think ferns, palms and banana leafs are growing wild. For this trend, scale is key. But, if you aren’t ready to commit to a bold gesture like wallpaper, you can still get the same effect by trading out some throw pillows or cushions or framing and hanging a large print.
