Embracing the Undone

If you consider your room a beautiful mess, we know this new 2018 trend is one you can actually get behind. Rooted in ancient aesthetic philosophy in Zen Buddhism, Wabi Sabi, is about to dominate decor in the new year.


The key to this trend is to is to fully embrace the imperfections of an undone look, making your space look lived in. You can do this by layering rugs and mixing cozy textures. The best part about this look? It’s okay if your room is a little messy or if you don’t make your bed perfectly. Whether it’s on purpose or not, your secret is safe with us!




Monochrome Spaces

On the other side of the spectrum, minimalist decor is still going strong in the new year. But lack of color does not have to mean a stark and boring space. Get tone on tone with muted pastels or layer neutral textures to create a cozy, cohesive look.

Graphic Wall Art

Buh-bye blank walls! 2018 is all about the large-scale graphic prints and cool photography. Bring your space into the new year with an oversized print on a large white wall or place a few together to create a simplified gallery wall.

Mixed Metals

If there is one old-school interior design rule to break this year, it would be not to mix metals. Mixing metals are having a major moment this year and you should not be afraid to mix a gold metallic pillow with silver decor accents.


The key to mixing metals is balance –  choose a dominant metal and use the other as an accent. Distributing the dominant metal throughout the space will give you give you that luxe, eclectic look.
