Patterns That Are on Their Way Out


Let’s get this out of the way first: Whatever type of pattern you want for your home, whatever pattern makes you happy or suits your existing décor or fits into the new design you’re planning, is appropriate – for you. But let’s face it – the trendiest patterns are the ones you’re going to find most easily, and hot patterns come and go with the seasons. Whether you want to be inside or outside of the box is up to you, but here’s a closer look at the patterns that have had their heyday and up-and-coming alternatives.

Humane Hides: How to Add Flare with this New Trend


It’s fair to say that if you have or want animal hides in your interior design, you’re a risk-taker. The patterns alone can be a challenge to seamlessly incorporate, but hides also bring with them big opinions about fair treatment of animals.

Using Apartment-Size Furniture in Small Spaces


You don’t have to live in an apartment to appreciate apartment-size furniture. After all, homes come with rooms of all sizes, and some have tight spaces that may seem impossible to furnish or decorate. Until now. Apartment-size furniture (yes, it’s actually called that), can give your bedroom, office, family room, or any small space plenty of personality on a smaller scale without making you feel like you live in a miniature world or that you’re being swallowed up by oversized furniture.

Sectional Space Suckers


Sectionals are big and they can be awkward. But sectionals are also comfy and seat a lot of people. The keys to determining whether this popular seating option can work in your space are to do your research and, most importantly, measure your space. There are a lot of sectionals out there in different shapes, sizes, designs, colors, and upholstery. The options can be overwhelming.
