Velvet is making a big comeback in 2018 but this isn’t your grandmother’s velvet. In an array of on-trend colours and varying shapes and sizes, velvet furniture is everywhere. We love this pretty little barrel chair in seafoam for the bedroom or home office.

Bring the bold geometric shapes that define the Art Deco style of the 20s into your home with these inexpensive 3D wall panels. If an entire wall in this pattern is too much for your taste, consider using them on a headboard, a piece of furniture or a door.

FRENCH GIRL FAB

Those pretty Parisian apartments you see all over Pinterest and Instagram are enough to make any girl swoon. They’ve all got that certain je ne sais quoi. French style marries chic and sophisticated with a heavy dose of “What? This old thing?” It’s the perfect blend of elegance and effortlessness. This gold mirror from Anthropologie is the perfect jumping off point for your French-inspired space.

Nothing says "vacation" quite like palm trees! Bring the feeling of hot and sunny destinations like California into your home with palm motifs. This faux palm leaf branch stands more than four feet tall and will remind you of sunny skies and warm weather all year round.

Mid-century modern has been in style for over half a century, but it continues to hold its own in the world of design. These upholstered mid-century modern dining chairs get a bit of a modern update with wide seats and sloping backs and add both comfort and style to a contemporary dining room table.

MILLENNIAL PINK

Ever since Pantone declared ‘Rose Quartz’ its Colour of the Year in 2016, pink has been a dominant colour on the fashion and design fronts. From walls and accessories to furniture, lighting fixtures and everything in between, pink grants everyone the freedom to add a little whimsy to their home and this beautiful bench perfectly fits the bill.

COPPER

Copper in the kitchen is simultaneously vintage and oh-so-now. This is a trend that’s easy to incorporate into your space, from copper measuring cups and mugs to tea kettles and trays ... and these stunning single serving bowls that will look great on display when they’re not in use.


ULTRA VIOLET

Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2018 is Ultra Violet and this is a beautiful and bold hue to add to your home. But if you’d rather take a more subtle approach to this shade, forgo large scale furniture pieces in favour of smaller accessories like this gold dipped amethyst cluster, which will look beautiful on a desk or kitchen countertop.

MODERN FARMHOUSE

Can’t get enough of Joanna Gaines’ effortlessly chic modern farmhouse style? Well, you’re not alone! Before you up and sell your home for an actual farmhouse, try adding some accessories that’ll help you achieve the look first. A great place to start? This striped linen table runner is so pretty, especially paired with fresh flowers and a bowl of fruit. How easy is that?

BLACK AND WHITE
