I know, I know farmhouse style right now is hot, and one of my personal favorite styles. All the chipping paint and authentic wear can make any antique lover swoon, alas that is not the only style I love. Here is my top 5 non-farmhouse trends that have me and many other designers drooling!
- Geometric Shapes
Whether is contemporary planters, cups or even the Himmeli (A traditional Finnish Christmas ornament) geometric shapes have become super popular. We are loving the contemporary and simplistic flare of his trend and how nicely it serves a purpose for small décor pieces and often as a plant holding accent.
Copper, copper, copper. Now this trend has been coming back for a while now and I cannot help but absolutely love it. Not only is Copper a super easy material to get your hands on, the color is so often sophisticated and classy. Not sure if we can thank the resurgence of the Moscow Mule and the associated copper mug, but whatever the reasoning, we are pumped to be adding this trend to our holiday homes.
Much like copper gold has become tremendously popular. It has become a mainstay in a glam or classy, often more modern home. Gold can be wonderful in small and large ways, whether it’s a small golden décor item, throw pillow or a gold coffee table, it can make a wonderful and feminine statement. We say feminine because it pairs so well with pinks and more feminine color pallets.
Okay, okay well maybe this one ties into the farmhouse style right now. Whites, beige and muted greys have become all the rage and the farmhouse style has don’t nothing but help this along. This simple and timeless trend has many a home décor nut opting for less bold colors and more white.
Clean, simple, classic and timeless if that doesn’t describe this whole list then I am not really sure what else would. The minimalist style is definitely the clean freaks dream. While it is partially the opposite of what I warmly consider the farmhouse-clutter-chic, minimalism, give me the urge to reduce the clutter and go for clean, smooth lines.
