Top 4 Spring Trends for 2015

Color, Fashion, and Decor Trends to Try in Spring 2015

There are many reasons why Spring makes us happy. Next to warmer weather and nature’s blossoming greens and flowers, the appearance of new fashion and decor trends are pretty close to the top of our list! Here is our round-up of fresh looks to try this season.

That 70′s Style

This groovy throwback style has been sashaying up and down the runways of Milan, Paris and New York and moving smoothly into home decor, too. We love the retro colors and stylings – especially when tastefully mixed into more modern surroundings. Try adding a fabulous flower child floral print or bold orange or avocado green accessory as a nod to the 70s. Low mod furniture, shag rugs, graphic floors and swanky lamps are also great ways to invite this trend inside without going all out.

Shibori

Tie Dye was all the rage last year, and for 2015 her sophisticated cousin, Shibori, is taking center stage. Named for an ancient Japanese art of fabric dying, shibori is traditionally seen in hues of indigo blue and white.

Geometrics

HGTV has declared geometrics as the frontrunning trend of 2015! We have seen this trend snowballing for a few seasons now, starting with the ever-present quatrefoil motif and escalating to include chic shapes of all kinds. We like the contemporary flair and balanced precision that geometrics bring to a space.

Greek Blue and Glossy Blue

Marsala may be the color of the year, but we are really feeling the love for bold Greek blues and glossy rich blues. House Beautiful has identified Mediterranean blue as a “need to know” color trend of 2015 and we second that sentiment. Lose yourself in the cool and chic blue spaces below for a taste of this glorious color at work.

Tips for Creating the Ultimate Boy’s Room

By Jane Blanchard

Are you looking to design an over-the-top bedroom for your son? I love the idea of creating a stylish and functional boys’ bedroom that’s a gorgeous extension of your own design aesthetic. Whatever design style you choose, it is important to create an environment that stimulates the imagination of your son. Accentuate his interests with a great design theme — perhaps your son is a sports fanatic, dreams of traveling through the cosmos as an astronaut, or aspires to sail around the world. Check out some great inspiration and ideas for you to help you choose the design that is perfect for your little man!

How to Create a Chic Kitchen Backsplash

A Simple Upgrade that MAKES a Difference!

A before look at the kitchen we easily remodeled with a contemporary backsplash

Designing a kitchen backsplash tends to be one of those projects that most likely falls at the end of the to-do list. Hanging a few pictures and organizing the counter space is sometimes all that people find the time to do. However, until you actually see the difference that a backsplash can make, you might never understand the power that this small upgrade can have.

New Year, New Colors…

2015 Color Predictions!

2015 color trends

Image via They All Hate Us

We have the whole year ahead of us to dream, create, dazzle and delight! Life will be changing all around us, from new fashion trends to new hairstyles, breaking news stories and more, 2015 will make its own mark.

In the home decorating world, the most popular trends and colors will gradually make their unveiling throughout the next twelve months. With Pantone announcing “Marsala” as the color of the year, we thought it would be fun to make our own predictions as to what colors will ultimately reign in 2015!

2015 color predictions

1. Warm Earthy Tones: With Marsala debuting as the 2015 color of the year, it seems only right that earthy tones will be seen alongside. Expect a warm mixture of toasty browns and oranges to chic and sophisticated hues of tan and beige.

2015 color trends

2. Bold Color Mixing: Bright colors are always in fashion! This year we expect there to be more mixing and matching of colors for an energetic impact. A bold feature wall or colorful piece of furniture is a wonderful starting point followed by a vibrant piece of art, pillow, duvet cover, lamp shade or kitchen appliance for the finishing touch.

3. Green Makes a Comeback: Benjamin Moore announced Guilford Green as their 2015 color of the year. A pale silvery green, this soothing hue creates a peaceful interior that’s hard to match. On the other end of the spectrum, warm olive tones are being seen in both furniture and wall décor. This rich, natural hue is truly lovely (in the right shade of course!).

4. Gray as a Neutral: Sophisticated, chic, trendy and stylish, gray is the “it” color. With the ability to stand alone or act as a neutral, gray isn’t going anywhere anytime soon! From walls to furniture, linens, rugs, accent pieces and beyond, there is not much that can’t be covered in this clean and polished hue.

5. Everything Blue: We saw blue make a comeback last year and we think it’s here to stay (at least for a little while longer..!). Bright Mediterranean style blues to gorgeous ocean shades, deep navy tones and more transform any space into majestic haven.

Go Paperless with WallPops Dry-Erase Calenders!

A Great Way to Make a Difference in the New Year! 

dry-erase calendars

Style your own yearly calendar by purchasing 3 sets of our 4 piece dry-erase calendars!

In the age of paperless bills, online bank statements, mobile deposit and receipts that are emailed to you rather than printed, we’ve seen the powerful shift of being wasteful, to instead being resourceful.

2015 dry-erase calendars

With a fun array of prints and patterns, there is truly a design for everyone!

One of the many things we love about our dry-erase products are that they are reusable year after year. Instead of having to purchase paper to write down notes or a new calender at the beginning of the New Year, you are able to simply erase and start over. From weekly calendars to monthly, 4-months at a glance and organization sets that include a place for notes and more, our selection just keeps on growing!

organization kits

Start the year right with one of these fabulous organization sets (featuring our White, Eden and Vintage Bazaar styles)

Being on the brink of 2015, there is no better time then now to get prepared for the New Year. Whatever your decorating style or budget, organizational method or schedule, this “green” calendar option allows you to both personalize and reuse while giving you the freedom to remove and reposition whenever you desire!

diy calendar projects

Not just for walls, our dry-erase calendars make great accessories on folders and books as well as your refrigerator!
