Natural and neutral:

Stick to a neutral palette of warm greys, whites, beiges and blues. Natural elements that are durable and long lasting will stand the test of time. These clean, chic and cozy elements fall right in line with the Modern Farmhouse trend.

Bright and abstract:

White and bright colors, and abstract patterns can help to reinforce the clean lines and modern feel of your home. Add an unexpected element to your home like a vintage art piece to follow this mid-century modern trend.

Integrate nature and organic textures:

Bring a touch of mother nature into your home with plants and materials that have a connection to nature like wood grain, finished metal and organic materials to jump on this mid-century modern and Scandinavian chic trend.


Handmade accessories can help your room stand out. Try adding some one-of-a-kind artisan pieces to your space like handmade vases and plates. Items made by hand can add texture and warmth to your space. Not only can these be everyday objects, but they can also be seen as works of art.

Jewel Tones:

Bold and vibrant jewel tones are in and fall in line with Pantone’s 2018 Color of the Year, Ultra Violet. Jewel tones can add depth to walls, fabrics, overdyed rugs and pillows. Rich, woven, organic materials can help you you’re your space feel Bohemian and on trend.


The addition of metallic touches into your home isn’t new, but this year the focus is on gold and brass for a top Art Deco trend. Brass and gold mirrors, furniture and lighting can add a luxurious and distinctive look to any room like this Vance chandelier.

Minimal Accessories:

Minimalistic style is on the rise. Pick fewer accessories to make a statement. The lack of clutter in your space will allow your guests to better focus on the overall design in the room. This transitional style trend can also help your space feel simple and sophisticated.
