On the spring 2015 runway one of the big trends was gingham- and this look easily translates into the home as well!  Many may thing of gingham as only for country homes or during the winter or fall months, but that’s just not the case.  I especially am loving overscale gingham patterns on upholstery and even painted on walls!  Take a peek at these home and fashion inspirations and see how to incorporate the look into your own life!

2014 Home Trends to Ditch (& to Keep!)

A new year means a whole new set of home trends. And while some things that became popular in 2014 are now “modern classics” there are others that have run their course. Let’s take a look.


The pattern most overused it 2014 has to be this one.  Everything became covered in chevron- from bathmats to crockpots.  Now, not ALL chevron patterns are “out” (keep reading), but I’d skip on the bold colored, smaller scale printed items.


Trending Now: Black Kitchens

While white kitchens will always be the most classic choice for cabinetry, black cabinetry is having a BIG moment right now. A little bolder than the popular gray, black is still traditional but with an edge.  This choice works especially well in bright, open kitchens, but can also make small kitchens feel more special and interesting.  One thing I wish I had done with my own kitchen renovation is be braver with the lower cabinet color- I went with a light/medium grey when I REALLY wanted to go charcoal.  But I was scared and went the safer route, since my kitchen is small and on the dark side.  Perhaps in a couple years I’ll repaint the lowers if I still like the idea.  In the meantime, take a peek at these inspiration images utilizing black cabinetry in big and small ways and let me know what you think about black cabinetry in kitchens!

These windows are so fantastic and made the focal point by the black cabinetry.

Another shot of the kitchen above, I adore this space! The high ceilings keep the black from being overwhelming.


Trend Explosion

We all spend lots of time pinning and pulling images of things we like, rooms that make us swoon and inspirational spaces.  But sometimes you can learn a lot by studying rooms you DON’T like.  I actually ask some clients to pull images of spaces they hate alongside ones they love because together they create a clear picture of what they want out of their space.

So here is a space that I straight up dislike. And no surprise, it’s a Kardashian home (not a fan of them, AT ALL) via Domaine Home. So let’s take a gander at Kourtney’s home, shall we….

Here’s the thing about this house, EVERYTHING is a statement. Everything. There is no place for your eye to rest and make the next statement feel special. It’s just an assault on your eyeballs in every square foot of space.  You know I love black and white stripes but this room is TOO much with the patterned floor as well and the crazy lighting topping it off.


MORE stripes! This room feels a little less offensive to me but again, with the bold art and the urchin light fixture it’s all just too much for me.


OMG, this kills me. The rug plus the wallpaper plus the primary colored sculpture and art. This is exactly what I would show someone if they asked me what I disliked in a home. Let the wall be the statement and pair it with simpler, classier art and accessories! GAH.


Trend Alert: Statement Roman Shades

Did you guys happen to check out the new Lonny? One of my most favorite designers ever Angie Hranowsky has a project featured and I happened to notice two rooms with serious statement roman shades in them- almost painterly!



She actually uses them a lot, and I found a bunch of other examples of roman shades that are a focal point in rooms.  They are especially great in small rooms that have very little space for art- instead serving AS the art instead!  What do you think? Do you like this look?
