Sometimes, I’m inspired by my own posts and I hope you are too. That’s the point right? I bought some Turkish kilim pillows on eBay and swapped out some existing pillow covers for a brighter living room sofa. Its a fun and easy way to mix things up, like buying a few new tops.

Look at me, its only 10 days into the new year and I’m already starting to make predictions about the upcoming trends. Besides Pantone’s Emerald color of the year actually striking a chord and coming up everywhere, I think that other lighter versions of emerald will be seen. Green is oh so pleasing to the eye and we will all welcome some fresh, invigorating green hues after the last few years we have been having.
I also predict that Shibori resist die, especially the indigo variety, will become the new Ikat for those itching for a global influence in their decor. Take a look around. You know once West Elm gets in on the game, its a done deal.
What new trends have you noticed emerging?
This girl is just crazy cool. The kind of girl I wish I could be in another life – comfortable with a saw, inhabitant of a studio loft space in Brooklyn, creator of large scale geometric wood inlay furniture pieces, restaurant designer galore. Just take a look at her earthy, eclectic, lived in apartment and studio and tell me you wouldn’t want to drop in for a studio tour and a cup of tea. Oh, and guess what – you can shop her finished items here.
So of course, Miss Coolness was featured on Design Sponge. I’m not jealous. No really, I am not.
Take one boring room, place a boucherouite rug anywhere – on the floor, on the wall, as a throw – and you will achieve instant textural, exotic, psychedelic, geometric, colorful perfection. These rugs are my newest obsession – kind of like Beni Ourain rugs in origin but way more shagadelic and lively. Each one I see is more amazing than the last. Gorgeous.
There is quite the selection at Pretty Mommy
I covet a Moroccan wedding blanket, or Handira, for a touch of exotic glamour bedside. Sequins, beige and white stripes, textural wool – what could go wrong? Originally woven by the Berbers in anticipation of wedding by the bride’s family. Wouldn’t it make an amazing wedding or anniversary gift today due to all the layers of meaning it holds?
A House in the Hills, extra funky with thick ochre chevron accent wall.
Even hanging it as a headboard tapestry makes sense, Remodelista

I am loving this simple, cheap, uber cool way to display your favorite photos or prints with colored masking tape. Whether you go black, white, or neon pink – it makes an artful statement without a heavy commitment, buying frames, or putting holes in your wall.
Yes, these round little guys are still popular. They add such worldly bohemian charm to traditional or modern rooms. Luckily, now there are more sources then ever to snag one. They come in all colors.
