What's hot this Winter

Although interior and design trends are not as fast-paced as fashion, strong annual themes tend to constantly emerge. But with winter on our doorsteps, here are a few hot trends to incorporate in your home.
There's a revival of the distinct style of interiors that was prominent in the 1960s and 1970s. What's in this season can be summed up in two colour palettes: Pink and Green.
Pink and it's accent colour blush have become the biggest palattes worldwide in both fashion and interiors. Every chain storE and fashion purveyor are pushing these two colours that act as a calm sanctuary. It's a timeless and sensual colour that has always been associated with high society and old money which has become mainstream and used in every area of fashion. 
The other huge colour trending right now is green, emerald, hunters green, moss, sage, and almost all accents of greens are a pleasure to use in homes seeing that they bringing the outside in. The coloUr green can be dressed up or dressed down and can be paired with a variety of colours. This colour creates an energetic space when combined with other vibrant hues that creates a sophisticated environment. 
Black happens to still be huge in the interior agenda because of it's dramatic neutral use in any area of the home. It adds a very continental flair; reserved for austerity, luxury, refinement, and elegance. The black hue accentuates contrasts perfectly and can make any style of interior design more refined.
We have to give our appreciation for raw wood seeing that authentic and weathered metalics are coming back as accessories. It's dynamic by nature, and the blend of gold and silver in particular lends not only an intriguing contrast but also a sense of visual dimension and texture. With the right balance of the two, your home can feel both elegant and eclectic.

"Design is a series of creative choices - it's a collaborative effort, an evolutionary process. You choose your fabrics depending upon what you want to say, then you work with mills to get those fabrics. Through the process, you realize what you want it to be."Mark Jacobs
