New year, new you. Isn't that what we always hear? And as we wrap up 2018, some of our clients are already getting a jump start on their newness with all kinds of projects. Good thing, we like it busy with a side of chaotic. For those of you mulling the idea of updating your home in 2019, we pulled together some of the top home decor and design trends that we are gravitating towards. Some of them (minimalism) (?!!) just aren't our style, so we'll smile graciously and wave to the all white lacquered room as we pass by. Hopefully this will give you some inspiration for getting your own project started. Or just call us. We'll always make room for one more!
Two of our favorite bathroom trends are floor to ceiling wall tile and matte black hardware. For greater visual interest, we picked two different tile patterns from Ann Sacks. Ceramic tile flooring that is made to resemble wood is also a top trend for the bathroom. Stick with light colors for an open, airy feel. While we love the matte black fixtures, it's always fun to mix up the metals as with these brass accents in the light fixtures, mirror and hardware. And don't be afraid to have some fun by incorporating a bold wallpaper, especially in a powder room.
OK, so we have thing for blue in the kitchen. Seems as though we are not alone in that as blue cabinetry is one of the top kitchen trends for 2019. Along with patterned tile backsplashes and waterfall countertops, today's kitchens are anything but plain Jane. And the same wood textured tile we loved so much in the bathroom is also the perfect flooring for your kitchen. How cool is it in black?
Turns out that another big decorating trend for 2019 is pattern mixing. Hello, have we met? Glad to see you've joined the fun! It's no secret that we love pattern and texture, and we will mix anything we love with anything else. Don't be shy! Go for it! In other trend news, statement light fixtures have moved beyond just the dining room. I know we all love our ceiling fans but give these beauties a try. On the more elegant side, curved barrel style chairs and Art Deco style curved sofas are an upcoming trend. Combine with brass accents and you have a chic space to serve those retro cocktails.

Hey friends, Riley here.
With the holidays coming up, there are two places I spend the majority of my time; cooking away in the kitchen for the holiday get togethers, and relaxing in the bath after a long day of distant relatives asking when I'm going to get married and have children. With that being said, I can think of no better excuse as to why I need to spruce up the two places in my house that seem a little outdated. For the kitchen, I found this great undermount sink from Kohler and this beautiful, modern faucet from Kraus.
I also love a modern bathroom so this freestanding tub from Wyndham and floor mount faucet from Delta totally caught my eye. How amazing to relax in here after a long day?

OK, so we have a thing for throws. With something for every season, linen in summer and hand knit for winter, these cozy throws add a comfy pop to your favorite chair.
One of our recent clients had linen sheets on her bed and said she would never again sleep on anything else. Imagine our excitement when we found these linen sheets at such an amazing price. Can't wait to try them!
Turkish cotton towels are known to be the softest and most absorbent and yes, the guest bath does need new towels but why should they get all the nice stuff? Buy a set or 2, you won't regret it.

It's probably no surprise that we love bathroom makeovers. Powder rooms especially are the perfect space to exercise your creativity. The enclosed space means it doesn't have to "flow" with the rest of the house so your options for color and style are wide open. And while you might want to exercise a bit of restraint when it comes to full baths (but really, why?), it should be a space that makes you happy and excited to get up in the morning! We love wallpaper in bathrooms because there are so many amazing patterns that well, just make us happy. Our top 5 bathroom makeovers range from a sleek spa inspired space to whimsical and colorful.
In this bathroom refresh we painted the cabinets and updated the space with new artwork, light fixtures and this amazing mirror from Pottery Barn!
Paint: Tricorn Black by Sherwin-Williams
Mirror: Pottery Barn
Rug: Serena & Lily
Bathmat and artwork: Anthropologie
Light fixtures: Rejuvenation
Even though there is a lot of pattern going on in this spa-inspired bathroom, it works because everything is neutral. The tub and shower are both behind a glass wall to create a wet area. The brass accents are my favorite!
Wall tile: Kelly Wearstler for Ann Sacks
Wood table: Homegoods
Vanity wallpaper: Schumacher
Cabinet paint: Broadway by Sherwin-Williams
Vanity chair: Homegoods
Light fixtures: Candelabra
So, speaking of bold wallpaper, this whimsical print makes an all white bath just pop. Add some cool mirrors and faux fur accents and maybe a wine fridge and why would you ever leave?
Wallpaper: Hygge & West
Mirrors and vanity stool: CB2
Light fixture: West Elm
Our last two powder rooms show you how much fun you can have with wallpaper. We loved the pattern so much, we used it in two different colorways! Keeping cabinets and counter tops fairly simple makes it easy to change things up if when you find your next favorite wallpaper.
