Hello my friends! I hope you all had a magical holiday! Mine was very low key and ultra-local :) but still relaxing and nice to spend time with the family. And now it’s 2015. Woot woot. So excited for this year–and to kick it off, I though it would be fun (and silly!) to do some trend predictions for 2015. It’s the nature of my business that I look at images all day long. In doing so–I get pr-e-tty good at predicting trends. Although I don’t consider my self to be a big trend follower, the minute I start to see too much of something I kinda move on to the next thing. The most recent example is the dear old Fiddle Leaf Fig tree. I love a good fiddle leaf as much as the next gal, but it’s played out. They’ve started to look as predictable as an Eames rocker in a nursery. So just as a fun little exercise, I’ve put together a list of what’s OUT and IN for 2015. And here we go:
1. Goodbye Fiddle Leaf, hello Split Leaf Philodendron.
2. Goodbye ‘reclaimed’ wood. Hello bentwood. (Now I love that wood gets reclaimed–don’t get me wrong–but let’s sand it down. I’m over the look of this trite ‘washed’ color over the wood.
3. Au revoir Radiant Orchid (I was never all that into you). Bonjour blush. Come to mama.
4. Bye Bye Ball Jars. Bienvenidos ceramic canisters.
And here are a few things I LOVE, but holy smokes, they’re getting played out–and they got played out FAST and it makes me sad, but I fear that black and white beni ourain rugs (especially the ‘fake’ ones), pineapple motifs and, yes– ‘textile wall art’ are all starting to get played out. It pains me to say so it truly does…
And what’s back? After some years out of the spotlight, I’m feeling all-over patterns on furniture–like this Kelly Wearstler sofa. Also currently obsessed with all things Matisse. I believe that wicker is making a comeback (like all natural materials, in my opinion)–but reinterpreted with more modern silhouettes, and, of course, the new D’angelo album is SO good.
2015 is going to be amazing, don’t you think?
What you do think about my trend predictions? Harsh? On point? Do you agree? Disagree? Have any predictions of your own?
