Artisanal Furniture : Home Decor :: Boutique Clothing : Fashion

While most furniture items you find in large decorating stores are mass produced, these items are handcrafted by local artisans who have perfected their skill. Not only are artisan pieces premium quality since they are carefully detailed, but they are also one-of-a-kind – meaning that these furniture pieces or works of art will leave your house with its own distinct style. You can easily search for artisanal pieces online, but also keep an eye out for local furniture stores to support smaller businesses.

Mixed Metal Hardware : Home Decor :: Mixed Metal Jewelry : Fashion

In the past we have strictly been told to stick to one style of metal when decorating a room; meaning pair gold with gold, silver with silver, etc. However, in 2016, there’s a new interior design rule in town – go crazy with mixing your metals, as long as it doesn’t leave the room feeling too cluttered or overwhelmed. If you have silver stainless steel appliances in your kitchen, don’t be afraid to hang a gold chandelier or lay out rose gold serving trays.

Rose Quartz & Serenity : Home Decor = Rose Quartz & Serenity : Fashion

If you haven’t already heard, Pantone announced a blend of these two colors as the 2016 Color of The Year. Rose Quartz is a light warm pink shade, while Serenity is a soft cool blue tone – and together they form a tranquil color scheme. These hues can be found on the runway in prints, fabrics, and accessories, but also within the home as wall color, throw rugs, paintings, and more. Because these colors are calming and flattering in a variety of spaces, you can incorporate them anywhere in your interior design.

Floral Upholstery : Home Decor :: Flower Prints : Fashion

For those of you have been patiently waiting to invest in a flower-patterned piece of furniture; now is your time! Floral prints are making a huge comeback in fashion, and can be included in your home décor in many different ways.

This trend is definitely one that you can have some fun with.
