Looking to 2018 - Our Top 3 Decor Trends

Iridescent Pieces 


With the holidays coming to an end and 2018 just around the corner, it has us thinking about home decor trends for next year. One of the trends that is on its way back in is to add in iridescent touches to your space. These photos show examples of iridescent backsplashes. The interesting thing about this is depending on the light in your space the colors can change drastically. Its important that these touches remain subtle because it can quickly become over the top, but when done in a subtle way can look so chic and purposeful.




Brass is another trend for 2018 that has come back in recent years and doesn't appear to be going away anytime soon. A lot of us associate brass with being outdated while in reality when done in an intentional way can look so updated and fresh. Examples of how brass can be used in an updated manor include light fixtures, end tables, accessories, hardware, the list goes on and on. Antique brass is another gorgeous finish that will continue to be on trend into 2018. 


Brown is Back


Gray has ruled the world of interiors in recent years so its hard for some to wrap their minds around the fact that browns, beiges, and taupes are on their way back in a big way! We are so excited about this shift back toward browns because it is such a warm rich tone that brings instant coziness wherever you use it. Look out for these tones in 2018!

A table top tree is the perfect holiday touch to add to your guest room. This does not have to be a large investment, and it can make such an impact in the space.

Holiday Throw Pillows


Another easy holiday decor item to add to your guest room are seasonal throw pillows. These can be something simple like furs and plaids all the way to trees and gifts or holiday sayings. You can find pillows like these at great prices in stores like Target or Homegoods. Holiday pillows with neutral colors are always a good bet so you don't have to worry about matching them perfectly to the bedding in the guest room.


Wreath in a Frame 


One super simple DIY you can add to your guest room is a small wreath hanging inside of an empty wall frame. This takes a simple wreath and turns it into a piece of art that is more appropriate to hang on a wall in a bedroom than just a wreath on its own. We personally love the look of a classic green wreath and red bow with a white frame, but you can take it in which ever direction you choose!

How to Use Heirloom / Generational Pieces in Your Holiday Decor

Outdoor Displays


Incorporating items that have been passed down from generation to generation is your home decor is a beautiful way to pay homage to the past. It can be even more fun and fitting to include these items into your holiday decor. When it comes to your outdoor display, things like vintage skis, wagons and sleds can make for the perfect addition. The great thing about these items is they can bring back priceless memories every time you see them!



Indoor Displays


When it comes to incorporating heirloom pieces into your indoor holiday displays, the possibilities are endless. Vintage items work so beautifully when paired with holiday pieces. For example, a vintage pair of ice skates can be hung with winter foliage tucked inside them for a gorgeous look. Another fun idea is to take an heirloom bowl whether it be crystal, glass or something else and create a mini winter wonderland inside it as shown below!
