Home Design Trends // Glass Window Backsplash

An unexpected and beautiful window backsplash can bring style and light into any kitchen. Whether you opt for a single window or a long row of glass, low-profile windows or full-height windows, it will make your kitchen feel more open and brighter. A window framing the great outdoors could be all the artwork you need in your space. Need some convincing? Take a look at some of my favorite backsplash windows below.

Home Design Trends // Cork

Cork is an impermeable, buoyant, fire-resistant, sound-dampening and eco friendly bark that’s finding a new popularity in today’s modern design. This natural material first debuted in interiors in the early 1900s, when architect Frank Lloyd Wright chose cork flooring for many of his home designs. No longer limited to walls and floors, this naturally green and environmentally friendly material is seeing a re-emergence in all manner of sustainable home accessories:

Home Design Trends // Pendant Lights

Pendant lights have a way of beautifying any room. Hanging above a dining table, kitchen bar or the reading nook in the corner of your bedroom, they look incredible just about anywhere.  The other great thing out these lamps is the wide variety that’s out there.  You can find them in any style, color or material of your liking, and to fit any budget.  Here are a few designs that we think you might love to hang in your home:

Home Design Trends // Suzanis

Suzanis are heirloom textiles from Central Asia and are highly sought after for their eye-catching graphics. The word suzani has Persian origin and means needle, referring to the embroidered details. The current trend of what is old is new has helped the resurgence of this old, traditional art form.  It started popping up a few years back and has remained popular for that ethnic, global, handmade look that is prevalent in many designs today.  We love the idea of dressing up an otherwise neutral contemporary room by adding a Suzani throw over the back of a simple modern couch, for example.  Here are some beautiful items to illustrate this colorful trend:

Home Design Trends: Stripes

Stripes are a classic pattern and decorating trend that never go out of style.  Their bold look has a wide appeal and can be used just about anywhere in the home from walls, to floors to furniture.  Horizontal stripes help to unify a space by moving your eye around the room, while vertical stripes give the illusion of height and lend to a more traditional look.  As far as width goes, use thin stripes in small spaces and wider stripes in bigger rooms.  Here are some striped pieces that could work for your home:

Home Design Trends: Polka Dots

Polka dots are great because they’ll blend into a modern or traditional setting, so any homeowner can experiment. A neutral color scheme with just a pop of color is a smart way to keep your decor sophisticated, but don’t be afraid to incorporate non-traditional colors when adding this trend to your home. Just remember that this is one of those trends where less is definitely more. You can’t go wrong with classic choices like black, white, or metallic ensure that your dot motif will remain chic for years to come. Here are some items we’re loving that make good use of this playful trend:

Home Design Trends: Emerald Green

Each year Pantone polls designers and brands about colors they’re featuring to aid in its decision for what hue will tinge the next 12 months. For 2013, the company has bestowed the honor of “Color of the Year” upon Emerald Green.

“Green is the most abundant hue in nature- the human eye sees more green than any other color in the spectrum,” Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, said in a press release. “It’s also the color of growth, renewal and prosperity- no other color conveys regeneration more than green. For centuries, many countries have chosen green to represent healing and unity.” Eiseman said that emerald is easily applicable to fashion and to interior design and we’re excited to see more of this beautiful color!
