Pink Romance

Take Back Your Favorite Shade

Pink is making a comeback in 2016. The shade previously reserved for little girl’s rooms and outdated bathrooms has taken on a new life. Pink has become a new neutral, perfect for adding a hint of color to the white rooms we’ve been seeing the past few years.
With rose quartz named one of the colors of the year, we are more ready than ever to embrace this chic shade.

Check out our Pinterest board to view even more images!

 Rose gold is one of the hottest trends of the moment. It’s a fresh take on the metallic gold designs of the past few years. The versatile finish can be paired with vintage or modern decor to match  your personal style.

Floral

Florals are always in style, but this year we’re seeing more subdued shades that go well with simple pieces and understated decor. Instead of the hot pink and black combo, blush and sage green are the key colors.

Lace

Pink and lace are both things that have been labeled the dreaded “frilly” in the past. Now these two classics have combined to form something that is far from that. Heritage lace patterns are done in cool shades of dove grey and antique blush, bringing back the classic elegance of the designs.

Watercolor

Watercolors are another one of the hottest trends of the season. This soft design ties in with the comeback of handmade products. When done in chic pink shades, watercolors take on a romantic feel, with the hazy shades gracefully flowing from one to the next.

Vintage

As vintage pieces have come back into style in fashion, they’ve also been appearing in  home decor. The nod to the past allows for a greater range of decor pieces. This vintage pink floral wallpaper has a chic watercolor finish, tying in the last trend, with a contemporary stripe pattern. The mixture of styles creates an eclectic style you can make all your own.

Top 9 Decor Trends We Are Loving for 2016

Keep Your Home Fresh & Fabulous This Year!

2016 Decor Trends

Image via Pinterest

New year, new set of trends! Every year we get extremely excited to see what decor trends may have stuck around and which ones are completely fresh and new. In 2015 we saw a ton of blue, bold and modern geometrics, decor with an industrial chic edge and of course glistening metallics. So what’s in store for the coming year? We thought you would never ask! Come and explore with us the top trends we are just head over heels for in 2016. From blush pinks to beautiful embellishments, we’re pretty sure we won’t want 2016 to ever end.

1. Think PINK!

Who doesn’t love pink? Ok so maybe not everyone, but the pink that is making it to the top charts this year is a beautiful soft pink that is effortlessly charming. From pastel pink walls to just a pop of pink, this sweet hue is not one to be missed.

2. Bold Botanicals

Nature has always been a focus in decor but in 2016 it takes a bigger and bolder look. Larger than life florals, birds, trees and leaves help your home keep that eco-chic vibe while also playing with texture and size. Textiles to walls, this trend can be seen from top to bottom and everywhere in between.

3. Yes, Wallpaper!

We saw wallpaper take a huge leap last year and it is still going strong! This year we see natural surfaces take flight such as faux woods, brick and stone as well as retro style geometrics, metallics and wallpaper done in more soft and subtle hues. Also trending for the new year, wallpaper in the kitchen!

4. Deep Blues

The color blue might have been the star of 2015 but we are still continuing to watch it gain momentum. In 2016 expect to see a lot more indigo as well as pairings of blue and white. Coating textiles such as curtains, rugs and pillows to dinnerware and furniture, this fabulous trend is especially easy to incorporate into your own home.

5. Reclaimed & Repurposed

We’ve been seeing the appreciation for vintage materials and goods gradually increase throughout the years and 2016 is no different. From tiles that look to have been aged over time to wood planks chipped with paint, these imperfect textures and finishes are bigger than ever.

6. Glistening Gold

The color gold can truly transform a room. That’s why we weren’t surprised to see it among the top home decor trends once again. Coupled with other warm metallics such as copper and nickel, these glistening hues are definitely sticking around.

7. Welcoming Words

We’re no longer just seeing sweet sentiments such as love and home sweet home on doormats or signs that welcome you inside but we are seeing them all throughout the home. From words on the wall to bedspreads and pillows that speak happiness, 2016 is the year where our hopes, dreams, thoughts and more adorn all of our decor.

8. Chinoiserie Chic

Also making a splash in 2016, beautiful chinoiserie prints! With an Asian influence, these cultured designs feature graceful florals, harmonious toiles and elegant nature scenes that add an exotic touch to walls and textiles alike.

9. Fine Embellishments

Last but not least we love all the embellished finishes that are adorning linens, wall coverings, cushions, throws and more. Beautiful beading, luxe flock detailing and fabulous fringe are a few of our favorites.

Video: White Brick Feature Wall

Makeover Your Room in Minutes

exposed brick wall

Images via Pinterest

Exposed brick feature walls are one of the biggest trends to emerge in home décor over the past few years. White brick takes this trend one step further, creating a subtle contrast that brightens up bare walls and gives the perfect amount of visual intrigue.

This feature wall was created using a brand new peel and stick wallpaper that can be applied in minutes. The wallpaper required no paste or brushes, simply remove the paper backing and adhere the design smoothly on the wall.
The best part is that the wallpaper doesn’t harm the surfaces it’s applied to. When it’s time to come down, simply peel it off—no tools needed. This is the perfect décor solution if you live in a rental or dorm.

To see how to create your own white brick feature wall, watch the video below:

5 Steps To Country Cottage Style

cottage

Image via Pinterest

Dreamy meadows, pastel hues, sunny mornings sipping tea on a secluded porch. The cottage lifestyle is one of slow serenity, ensconced in the time honored comforts of home.
Time moves a little slower. The light stays a little longer. The birds sing a little sweeter.

Our cottage style wallpaper is a memorable mix of old and new, where heirloom treasures harmonize with modern life. This beautiful assortment of fresh florals, vintage French prints, and shabby chic inspirations is full of picture perfect charm.

  1. Statement Furniture

StatementFurniture

Antique statement furniture is a way to immediately set the tone for a room. You can decorate the entire space around one piece by making it a focal point, or by pulling in other items to match the style.

2. Vintage Accessories

VintageAccessories

Images via Pinterest

Vintage accessories are an easy way to complete the look of a room. Classic cameras, delicate teacups, leather bound books, and antique suitcases add ambience and visual cues as to the mood of the room. A touch of whimsy and a hint of imperfection sets cottage style apart from French Provincial decor.

3. Beautiful Wallpaper

CottageWallpaper2

Wallpaper from The Cottage collection

One of the most impactful ways to give your home a country cottage makeover is with a beautiful wallpaper. Beautiful florals and toiles are classic patterns that will maintain their style for years to come.

4. A Little Sparkle

A crystal chandelier, a glass door knob, or a jeweled necklace carefully placed add just a touch of glamour. You can go as big or small as you like, just enough to catch the light.

5. Fresh Flowers

florals

Not only will fresh flowers look beautiful, they’ll make your room smell amazing. Their aromatherapy properties will make for a relaxing environment, which is really what cottage style is about: enjoying the simple moments when the light filters through the window, when cookies come fresh out of the oven, when you have time to sit down and read the book you bought three years ago.

Dark Wood

Rich stained wood perhaps goes the best with a palette that usually includes blacks, whites and browns. Off-setting rugged artifacts to black and white photographs, using pieces of dark furniture will equip your room with the sophistication it needs to steer clear of ending up in the category of “tacky”.
