1. Green Accents & Earth Tones
Green has always been a go-to colour for spring, but this year earth tones are a popular choice all throughout the year.
- Darker shades with brown undertones like fern, moss, olive and sage help the green trend work across the seasons.
- Work in warm browns like chocolate, mocha and terracotta accents.
- Add texture with real plants and faux foliage
- Green shades work especially well in the bedroom. Create a lush, relaxing space with green accent pillows, paint, wall décor or bedding
2. Biophilia Design
Organic trends have grown into full-blown biophilia. That means more direct references to nature and natural materials in your home.
- Add plants! Get the look faster and easier with faux foliage in everything from simple stems to potted plants and trees.
- Nature-inspired motifs featuring plants and animals.
- Reclaimed wood embraces imperfections and natural weathering. Bonus: recycled products are also more sustainable.
- Woven textures in surprising new places like pendant lights, vases and wall art.
- Stone and stone-look materials.
Modern geometrics are the perfect way to inject bold pattern into a room.
- Look for new takes on classic geometrics, like mixed shapes overlaid on art or accent pillows, metallic chevron prints, and geometrics in pastel shades.
- Strike a balance by adding breathing room between bold geometrics.
- If you’re feeling creative, try taking this trend to your walls with geometric paint
4. Mixed Metals
- Establish a dominant metal in the room and incorporate other shades as accents.
- Keep finishes (polished, matte, distressed) consistent across different pieces.
- Add one statement piece in your accent metal.
- Find at least one item that includes both metals.
- Feature a maximum of three metals in one room.
