15 Terrazzo Decor Pieces That Prove the Material Is Here To Stay

My affair with terrazzo began in a tile store in Paris last November. In search of flooring that had the elegance of marble but a little less cold (and generally, less expensive), a large, creamy slab of terrazzo with bright chips in sage, gold, charcoal, and terracotta caught my eye. So elementary-school chic! Color me a millennial, but I was instantly hooked. From the Italian word for “terrace,” terrazzo is a composite material made with irregular-shaped pieces of marble, quartz, granite, or glass, all combined together with a neutral binder. A sustainable option from the outset, it was created by 16th-century Venetian artisans to repurpose marble pieces leftover from the production of marble slabs. Read More >> …

7 Kitchen Trends We’ll Be Seeing Everywhere in 2022

There’s a good reason why many people refer to kitchens as the heart of the home. Sure, they get a lot of foot traffic daily—from family dinners and intimate date nights to post-school study sessions—but more than that, they act as a microcosm for our daily lives, routine, and outlook. The forms our kitchens take—and the way they morph year over a year—says a lot more about us than just what color we’re loving lately. They reflect back on our priorities, our struggles, and our goals, both for our homes and our lives. For that reason, the expert-driven trends below for 2022 are really more than just trends. Granted, there are a few mixed in just for the pretty factor they provide but the majority of these new kitchen upgrades are a prime example of our collective shifting priorities amid life in a pandemic. From the return of color—and a reinvigoration of a positive perspective—to the…

2022’s Colors of the Year Have a Lot in Common

As each year draws to a close, I find myself anxiously awaiting the color trend reports for the following year. There’s just some sort of low-key optimism that comes along with the announcement—the anticipation of new things to come, and the comforting promise of change on the horizon. Sure, the color trends could be taken at face value—corporate-picked hues selected to influence what shades all our favorite clothes and home accessories will be cast in in the following months—but they can also mean much more than that. In the past several years, companies like Pantone, Benjamin Moore, Sherwin-Williams, and more have used the palette as a porthole to a wider conversation about our world at large. Seen that way, the colors chosen as the following year’s trends are no longer just colors—they’re the physical embodiment of our conversations, our ethos, the times we live in. Read More >> …

The Predictions Are In: 12 Home Decor Trends We’ll See in 2022

Over the past 18 months, many of our homes have received more love, care, attention, and introspection than in the last five years combined. And who could blame us? Time hunkering down indoors meant we all naturally turned our attention to our interior surroundings, sussing out once and for all what works for our lifestyles and what reflects our personalities best in our homes. Because of all this TLC, we’ve seen a surplus of home decor and design trends cycle in and out over the past year or so—some picking up steam and becoming full-blown phenomena (we’re looking at you, dramatic marble), while others are just on the cusp, waiting to catch fire with homeowners.

6 Timeless Trends That Interior Designers Are Reconsidering in 2021

There’s a certain irony in calling a trend “timeless.” Trends, by nature, come and go, which makes it tough to know which ones cross over into being long-standing and dependable and which ones will disappear. All-over carpeting, for instance, once had its moment, as did mirrored walls. Today, you’d be hard-pressed to find a fan of those. Framed-in bathtubs have been overruled by free-standing ones, and popcorn ceilings have been replaced by smooth surfaces. And yet, there are a handful of designs that have remained popular in recent years, making them appear as timeless as trends can get. Until the pandemic hit and quarantine put our homes under a microscope. Read More >> …

The Home Trends That Got Us Through 2020

If you’ve been spending all this extra time in your house this year, and haven’t felt a startling urge to replace everything you own—I’m at once in awe and completely jealous of you. I’ve spent a ridiculous amount of time painting, rehanging shelves, replacing framed art, scouring Facebook marketplace for furniture to flip, and doing lots (and lots) of Tik Tok research. One bright spot of pacing around our homes day in and day out? So many cool trends have bubbled to the surface this year, from the practical (regrowing veggies), to the superfluous (squiggly furniture), and more people than ever have taken an interest in making their homes feel… homey. Below, we’ve gathered some of our favorite decor and DIY trends from the past year, as well as some we’re still not sure about. Feel free to change our minds, though! Read More >> …

The Color Trends of 2021 Are Here—& They’re Bringing the Reset We Need

In a year that’s been marred by its share of gloom, one of the things I found myself looking forward to were the Color of the Year announcements from the design world. That’s not to say that I’m going to be rushing to stock up on every one of their paint selects—in fact, sometimes they can be harder to buy into (we all remember Pantone’s Ultra Violet from 2018, right?). But there’s much to love about them: the fresh perspective they bring, the anticipatory excitement they drum up for the new year, and the reboot they herald. The need to make our lives at home as rich as possible is more evident than ever, and the 2021 Colors of the Year do their bit for our relaxing, happy, energizing, cluttered, chaotic, calming, well-loved spaces. Based off of these shades alone, I predict a brighter and happier 2021. Let’s dive in, shall we? Read More >> …
