Four Gorgeous Design Trends for 2016

2016 is going to be a good year for design, and a bad year for my budget 🙂 From metallic to marble, vintage rugs to Scandinavian-style design, here are some of my favorite design trends that will make a big splash in homes this year.

Rose gold: A close friend of copper, but slightly different, this metallic trend is looking great in any form- side tables, lamps, seating, flatware and even shelving.

Marble: A classic for many years, but marble seems to be going mainstream now. Retailers like Target are producing affordable and chic pieces that include real marble. I can’t get enough.

Vintage inspired decor: Vintage rugs from across the globe are making their way into every living room, bedroom, hallway and kitchen lately. The unique colors and patterns make each seem one of a kind and they can add great texture and interest to any space. Wall hangings are also coming back as statement pieces and it’s a great addition to hang over a bed, sofa or even incorporated into a gallery wall. 03cb39f3f18c4e3a90ddc830d7372794 424dfb7c57f2f988216dff7b341bee1d 1222958ac18d23173d24ce9bc6a3f69d 8aff585026a7f1608e17439903dd5f0b

Scandinavian Interiors: These images almost make me want to throw out everything I own, paint all the walls white and start with a clean slate. Of course, I won’t be doing that… but the look is so striking and beautiful.

2016 New Collections: CB2

Apologies for the brief blog hiatus! I intended to post every day this week but real life and my full time job got crazy busy this week. Today I’m back with my favorites from CB2!  (I shared a few of my other favorites on Monday here: 2016 West Elm collection) Along with a new logo, CB2 has a great new collection out this year. Gorgeous metallics, unique colors and materials and fun shapes.

Seating: The leather daybed is such a gorgeous statement piece and would be a classic for years to come. The quirky colors and curves of the loveseat and chair add a punch of personality to any space and rose gold chair is a new twist on a vintage look. I’m such a fan of anything and everything rose gold lately.

Tables:
The dark wood and brass combo on this first table is amazing and I’m enthralled by the shape of these table legs. The marble and gold is another favorite combo and the curvy legs on this table would look great next to a sofa.

Lighting: The clean, circular shapes and brass details make these lights a classic for any home. The simplicity of the pendant would look great in a triplet combo over a kitchen island and the sconce would work well in a living room, paired on either side of a sofa. The sconce has an unexpected, fun twist that I adore– the perfect little leather strap. globe-pendant-light hemisphere-wall-sconce
Decor and Accessories: This rose-gold bar cart might be my favorite item in the entire new line. It’s so elegant and stylish. I have this marble paper towel holder on my wish list to purchase soon. I have a problem with buying too many vases and these certainly won’t help my cause: sundial // hand painted // abstract. Last but not least, these neutral pillows have wonderful eye-catching details with the bold color-blocking and the beautiful texturedolce-vita-bar-cartmarble-paper-towel-holdersundial-vase marinha-vase tread-vase quilted-no.-101-18-pillow gravel-ivory-18-pillow
