Home Design Trends // Gray Wood

Gray has been popular in the design palette for quite some time, and for good reason. It goes perfectly with almost any color, bold or neutral. Adding gray to wood creates an extra dimension that we love. The added texture, mixed with the varying finishes, make this the perfect trend for any household.

Home Design Trends // Subway Tile

Subway tiles are by no means a new look, but they are enjoying a renaissance at the moment and have a timeless quality that won’t ever grow tired. They get their name from the tiles that were found on New York City subway stations in the 80’s. Their rectangular shape can be arranged in a variety of patterns and they come in many different colors and materials including marble, travertine and even glass. Their big appeal is not just their classic look, but their price tag as well, as they’re generally quite affordable and will go with most design styles. What’s not to love?

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.

Matte Black Flatware, Canvas Home


Serving Platter, Heath Ceramics


Striped Napkin Set, Small Gunns


Soap Pump, CB2


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.
