Home Decor Trends and A Little Bird Told Me Link Party 2016-08-2412:01:00 AM
Have you ever wondered about architecture and interior design trends? What make them happen? What's the next big thing? There is a whole industry within the design industry that tries to predict what's going to be the next big thing. It's pretty fascinating - color choices that are dictated by the economy, the relationship of fashion to home design, and on and on.
Even though I design buildings for a living, I am not going to claim I can see the future in design, but what I can tell you is that every week, I see evidence of several trends. Are they on the way in? On the way out? I'll let you decide.
Large Scale Art
Country Chic Cottage's large scale sports mural is a perfect example of this. We all seem to be on the lookout to have large art without paying a huge amount of money.
You may have seen a bit of farmhouse chic around the internet (or on your TV) lately. Lolly Jane's Farmhouse Chic Dining Room Shelves are a perfect example of this - neutral, chippy, and way cool.
I have to say that I love repurposing projects. Taking a piece of furniture (or anything else) and making it into something new and beautiful makes my heart sing and keeps one more item out of a landfill. Grandma's House DIY used some paint and elbow grease to convert an old radio into a kitchen island! How cool!
Sometimes simple doesn't mean plain. Large scale geometry looks amazing, especially in high-contrast colors like what's found in the Glue Sticks Blog's Gingham Quilt.
