My Favourite 2012 Trends

Here is a quick list {and photos of course} of my favourite, must-have trends for 2012...

Rustic Wood:  All you need is a bit, like shown here on top of this gorgeous island.  Perfection!

Graphic Posters:  They provide a burst of colour, and usually a sweet saying to make anyone smile.  Love!
Natural Fibers: Shown here, linen is simple, classic, and very inviting - Also it's a perfect backdrop to add colourful accents.  Bright throw pillows would be a perfect addition to this sofa!

Painted Furniture: A great way to create a statement and add wow factor to any room.  So sweet!

Handmade: Rather than heading to a big-box-store, try making something by hand or getting something made from a small local company.  It's much more unique and special, plus you'll have a great story to share with your friends!

Bold Florals: These are not your granny's florals!  Bold, modern, and graphic prints are a perfect addition to perk up a space.  Looks gorgeous on this upholstered headboard, no?

Warm Metal Accents:  Gold, brass, and copper are huge right now!  It's very easy to add warm metals into your space using accessories, like this darling leaf inspired tableware.

  3. Love your trend report. I so agree that rustic wood is still hot but use in small doses. Crazy about warm metals and especially these beautiful ones as leaves! I also love linen and its such a soft, comfortable materials to seat on and the perfect neutral for accent pillows to pop!

  4. Love bold florals, metallics and natural fibers...especially when on pretty settees!

  5. I love them all! Wish I had that settee!


Oodles of thanks for the comment!
