Color Trend: Pale Pink Spring Decor

Pink Decor

Spring is just around the corner, and with it comes the desire to inject a fresh feeling into existing home decor. One way to do exactly that is to add an unexpected accent color that’s light and cheerful–just like spring itself! This year, the hue that’s making waves is a soft and playful shade of pink.

Light Pink

The great thing about pink is that a little goes a long way. Just one pink piece can make a big impact, making it a very budget-friendly pick! Try a throw pillow in dusty rose, a traditional Oriental carpet with pink undertones, or a striped rug in multiple variations of pink. And if you’re nervous about making a commitment to the color, pick up a bouquet of pink tulips to try pink on for size!

Trend Watch: Folklore Decor Inspiration


If you like boho style–with its global influence, layered textiles, and relaxed vibe–you’ll love its latest evolution! Introducing folklore-inspired interiors, which take their cue from early American style as well as from the handicrafts of Central America. Folklore decor is a little less glam and a bit more primitive than boho, making it great if you love colorful, handmade pieces but also lean towards a restrained approach to decorating.

Get the look with traditional pieces such as patchwork quilts, embroidered throw pillows, rustic wall hangings, and unfinished wood furnishings. Focus on a subdued palette of sunbleached neutrals, then accent this foundation with needlework in either bright hues like turquoise and geranium for a ‘south of the border’ effect, or nature-sourced shades like burnt sienna and olive to conjure a sophisticated southwestern sensibility. The result will be a warm and welcoming space with serious personality!

Get the Look: A Living Room with Vintage Style Decor

Vintage Style

These days it seems like vintage style decor has more appeal than ever. It brings a unique sensibility to your home and can make for great conversation starters. Thankfully there’s no need to scour your neighborhood thrift store to get the look as plenty of contemporary pieces are now being designed to have vintage-inspired character. What’s more, you don’t need to re-do a whole room to accommodate them. Simply slip them straight into your existing space for a touch of personality!

To get the vintage living room look in your own home, a few key pieces go a long way! A tufted leather club chair feels at once inviting yet sophisticated. When selecting artwork, consider vintage advertising posters to inject color, pattern, and historical flair. Embroidered throw pillows recall the handiwork of a bygone era. Finally, the scrollwork base and crackled lacquer top of this round accent table give it a playful antique vibe. With thoughtfully chosen accents, you’ll be well on your way towards celebrating the past in style!

Jewel Tones for Fall Decorating

emerald green rugs

As summer’s sunshine fades and becomes a distant memory, it’s time to turn our thoughts–and our interiors–to Autumn. One of our favorite fall decorating trends are the saturated jewel tones that feel right at home for the cooler, cozier days of fall. Inspired by the blues of a crisp twilight, the plums of an Autumn sunset, and the greens of a shadowy pine forest, these hues tap into the deeper, more dramatic atmosphere that characterizes this time of year.

Rugs are a great way to incorporate jewel tones into your space. The colors are surprisingly versatile and lend themselves surprisingly well to a number of styles, from modern to global and beyond. Patterns such as stripes and graphics work beautifully in a contemporary interior, while medallions and flat weaves suit more traditional settings. And of course although these shades are inspired by fall, they still look brilliant the whole year ’round!
