Decorating Beyond Grays

modern kitchenDid you just recently buy a new house, or are you considering redecorating your current house? If you’ve got an eye on the decorating world, you know everything gray! Gray has been in the spotlight for a while now, but there’s a hot movement for colors, bold shapes and other trending decorating styles that you might find inspiring.

Geometry: Backsplash tile, wallpapers, bold rugs and even lampshades: If it’s angled, it’s in. The increasing popularity of a simple geometric form adds a modern flair and a bold edge to almost any space.

Bold sofas: Is it red? Wonderful. Is it velvet? Even better. Design trends are renouncing the plain for something that pops in the living room.

Marble, terrazzo and stone: Two are bold, the other sparse. But all are making a comeback in design trends, from lavish marble countertops to austere stone tables to funky, chunky terrazzo tiles.

Metallics: Take a few picks from copper, silver, gold or even rose gold to achieve a trending affection for mixed metal accents.

Macrame: Not just for the 70s anymore, macrame is back in action prominently as plant holders, but inside the home it also is adding a vintage touch hanging on walls and as textured fringe.

Warm color palette: Design color trends are shifting from cool tones to embrace warm browns and earthy, light accents. Yellows and browns make spaces more inviting while still retaining a minimalist sense of style.

Colorful cabinets: Move over, white. Kitchen design is all about the blue, green and other cool, moody shades for a cabinet look.

Southwest inspiration: Lucky for us, cacti are cool. The modern Southwest feel is especially trendy, so break out that ceramic pot, woven rug or rough-hewn basket.
