What's inspiring us this month....



With the start of a new year, this month’s design inspiration focuses on some top interior design trends we will see during 2019.  While many of the 2018 design trends will continue to be used, some of our favorite trends for 2019 include biophilia, ceilings, and neutral tones.

Biophilia is the practice of incorporating nature and natural elements into an interior environment. Biophilic design has been proven to measurably reduce stress, enhance cognitive function and creativity, as well as expedite healing.  Think natural organic materials like wood, stone, and plant life.  This trend is a simple one to incorporate into your home or office without having to completely redesign or refurnish your space. Just add a few plants or air plants to your space.  Or consider adding some wood accents such as side tables or decorative accessories to your home.

This year ceilings will have their own focus as the fifth wall to a room!  While white ceilings are standard why not try something different and enhance the look and feel of your space. Think painted, lacquered, and wallpapered ceilings.  This is another trend that is easy to incorporate and won’t break the bank.  So if you’re bored with a room but don’t have the budget to re-furnish, consider painting or adding wallpaper to the ceiling for an updated and fresh new look. 

One final trend we are looking forward to this year is a shift from cooler grey tone neutrals and dark floors to warmer color palettes, earth tones and light wood floors.  Although we love the cooler grey tones and dark floors, we are excited about changing it up with more mushroom, caramel and honey tones.  The great thing about this trend is that you don't have to go big if you want to experiment with these colors. Leave the paint at the hardware store, and look to add pops of the trendy hues in your linens, furniture and rugs.

Earth tones don’t mean traditional as they can be used in a modern design as well.
