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.

00136 Park in the Spring

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.
