Things are always changing but many designs recycle. Here are some of this summer's design trends:
West Coast Cool: Rooms will feature furnishings with relaxed, natural textures - rattan and cane, wood, stone and earthy tones. Light, airy fabrics like linens and sheers will be layered in and the botanical and floral patterns will be popular.
Mixed Furniture & Styles: Mixing old with new creates interest in any room. Mid Century modern paired with a french antique. Mixed it up!
Boho: Lightweight throw blankets and floor pillows bring an instant update and bohemian edge to your living spaces.
Layers: Different textures and colors can be used to create a warm and inviting living room. Combine materials, styles and time periods to create a layered look that is uniquely yours.
More Can Be A Good Thing: There is a move away from minimalism so don't be afraid to tastefully display your treasures. Group your collections to create interest in the room but don't over do it!
