I’ve been hanging out on Pinterest a lot lately. There are a couple of projects happening in my world right now that are pretty much taking every ounce of my creative energy and so I find myself going again and again to Pinterest for inspiration.
With all this time spent looking at pretty rooms, random tips and tricks, lovely places to travel, desserts that make my mouth water and projects that look fun but I’m sure I’ll never actually get to, I have noticed a few trends that keep showing up in my favorite indoor spaces.
There are a couple that I’m super in to. Let me share …
Indoor Hammocks + Swings
I mean, what could be more fun that having a swing in your living room?! It’s a bit of a 70’s throwback, and not really a new concept, but I keep seeing hammocks, swings and – my favorite – the hanging chair all over pinterest.
Patterned Cement Tile
I’m particularly fond of the tiles on a bathroom floor, but they can certainly be used elsewhere; think kitchen backsplash or fireplace surround. One caution: I have a feeling these graphic patterns will feel dated after a while. Maybe that doesn’t make a difference to you, especially if you really, really love the pattern and want to commit to it longterm. I would suggest using in a less-used space (like a bathroom) or as an accent rather than a major focal point in your main living spaces.
Vintage Kilim Rugs
In case you’re curious, a kilim is a flat, tapestry-woven carpet produced in south-east Europe and the middle-east. They were once considered inferior to the traditional pile rug and are now a highly sought-after collectible.
Perhaps the best feature of the rugs, though, are their colors. I’m not typically one for bold color and yet I am always struck by how beautiful they look, particularly in neutrally-decorated spaces.
If you’re in the market for a vintage rug, try searching on eBay, craig’s list or try The Vintage Rug Shop to see what goodies are in stock.
Those are three of my favorite current decor trends. What are yours?
