It’s no secret that mudcloth and global-inspired prints are having a moment in the design world. Flip through any home decor magazine or scroll through any decor Instagram account and you’ll no doubt see blankets, chairs, rugs and of course, throw pillows all with these beautiful, eye-catching patterns. If you’re really looking to add some color into your space, these prints are a great way to do so without overpowering the room. These pieces also look great contrasted against natural wood, so they’ll pair perfectly with that wood coffee table you’ve been eyeing.

There’s nothing like a rich texture to really add some elegance and sophistication to the overall design aesthetic of your space. While velvet has always been regarded as regal and a bit more old-school, it is coming back in a big way this year. Huffington Post, calls this plush, multi-dimensional fabric “2018’s go-to upholstery option” as it really fits with the new bohemian age of design that has taken off in the past few years. We personally love adding in a rich colored velvet throw pillow as a simple way to elevate a room’s design.

Cottage-Style Stripes

Leather and faux fur are taking their design momentum all the way into the New Year. Both of these elements have long been regarded as a fun way to liven up your space, and this year they are a great way to add some contrast and texture to your space without compromising the overall feel. These textures are also a great way to decorate for the winter months, as they really invite you to kick back and relax on them.
