  • Tufted upholstery and nailhead trims are trends that are still going strong
  • Light and muted furniture and fabric colors
  • White washed furniture
  • Metal and wood/industrial chic
  • Urban living- small spaces initiative
  • Sleek recliners
  • Leather and mixed material pillows
  • Accessory stitching on pillows
  • Block prints on wood
  • Contrast stitching on leather
  • Colored leather
  • When it comes to leather, gray is the new brown

How do you use these trends in your home? Are there any new ideas here you’d love to try?

  1. Gray is just another neutral. I do think there are so many different shades of grey that when pared with other colors say turquoise or cobalt it can bring life to a room. These colors are great for coastal decor. Gray and pink is really cute for a girls room also. Grey and taupe is very soothing. Gray can also be very sophisticated I think and go well with contemporary furnishings. Bright colors are in style right now. For me personally a little bit goes a long way but if I have a gray chair or settee at the end of my bed I can put bright colored pillows on it for now and when the trend changes It will be easy to find a color to replace them with .
