Oh how I love a good throw pillow. With the color variation and trendy geometric print on this baby, we’re sure you’ll be able to find a sofa or side chair just waiting to welcome this pillow in satin.
I also found this very cool, oversized, polyresin chain link. I can’t say what its intended use is which makes it even better. I’d love to see a length of it stretched out on a dining table or a bunch of them hung together as a room divider.
Finally, for just a touch of green, check out this adorable print, aptly titled “Sit Down.”
Wishing you all a happy 2013. Cheers to going Green!
Ombre: Having two or more colors/ tones that bleed into each other, often creating a light to dark gradation. Also known as dip dye, this trend has had a huge impact in the world of fashion. Luckily for us, it has made its way to the world of home décor. The thing I love the most about the ombre effect is its versatility. Depending on its application, ombre can complement any style. From artwork, textiles, dishware and everything in between…
If you ask me, one can never have too many vases. Available in unlimited shapes, sizes, and colors, they are a simple trick to add some interior panache. This version in wood, paired with fresh flowers, is a great combo for a natural look.

For a neutral pallet, try a grey scale pillow from CB2.
Add in a blue-hued rug for an instant calming effect.
For me, the kitchen is one of easiest places to add personality. Adding trends to your space with kitchenware is easy because small items like plates and silverware can be super trendy without making drastic changes to your overall space. The ombre treatment gives these otherwise plain utensils a bit of glam.
Showing off ombre in a more classic material like silver gives theses classic cups a trendy feel.
Geometric patterns and shapes have always been present in the design world, but it wasn’t until recently that they have become a huge trend. Adding geometric elements to your space is a great way to get a more contemporary feeling.
With its combination of glass and iron, this terrarium gives off a modern industrial feel.

Before these funky trays, serving food has never been so fun. Mix n match for different shapes and combinations.
Or stick to one shape with geometric cast aluminum bowls from Post 27.
Faux Bois, aka false wood, is popping up all over the place. This rustic imitation of wood grain may conjure 70’s flashbacks for some, but in small doses it can have a charming, rustic effect. Here are some of our favorite options, from a retro lampshade to funky wrapping paper.
This eerily realistic vinyl placemat from the MoMA store makes it easy to knock on wood at the dinner table. $13.
