Top 5 trends from 2017 still hot for 2018 / by Kevin Twitty

Being trendy can have a negative connotation when talking about interior design. However, I love a good touch of updated flair for every home. Even a traditional style can have a few trends blended in for that that updated feel. Good news, here are some things you did last year that are still in style today!

5. Grey and Gold 

I am crushing hard on the mix of grey and gold. A lot of people would say that grey can be cold and uninviting however, when you layer in the warmth from the gold accents it leaves you feeling cozy and at home. 

4. Geometric Wallpaper

This is not your grandma's wallpaper! Geometric wallpaper is an exciting way to set your home apart from everyone else's. It add a ton of depth and dimension to any room. If you are hesitant of wallpaper, try it out on an accent wall or in a small powder bath. You will be amazed how something so simple packs a big punch. Great news for Portland, Oregon residence who love grasscloth, you can get geometric grasscloth wallpapers!

3. Freestanding Tubs

Say goodbye to the sunken tub from the 70's and hello to the freestanding fabulousness of todays modern bathroom. Freestanding tubs have such a clean feel and who doesn't want to feel clean in the bathroom.

2. Statement Chandeliers

Housing these days are mainly in two categories. 1. Older or 2. New Construction. Either way, neither builders not older home generally have the best lighting for you to choose. You will be pleasantly surprised when you decide to take a leap of faith on that special light fixture you have been eyeballing. 

1. Deep Blue Color

Dive in to the deep blue home! I am overly in love with navy, royal and cobalt blues. It's such a fresh take on a traditional color. Why I can't get enough of blue is because so many colors compliment blue when designing your home. Weather you want that Ralph Lauren feel or Modern home, blue is a great color to start with.
