Hello! Welcome to Design Trends.

Welcome to my first blog post. EVER! I am so excited to share with you what inspires me and what's trending in the design world.

In August, I attended NY NOW. The show was great and was a feast for the eyes for decorators and designers. The show presented what's hot right now in decor:

Natural Elements

Animal Skin

Shagreen furniture and fabric and wallpaper

Neutral colors

Animal horns

Wood elements

Hand printed linens

Luxurious Bedding

Wool textiles


Rustic & Chic furniture

Re-purposed glass

Re-purposed wine barrels


Metal Wear/Serving Pieces

Aged Brass

One of my favorites was this lamp by Michael Aram. It is a Cocoon Pendant Lamp. I love the natural element of it.

Stay tuned for updates & projects I am working on.
