Nordic chic

Scandinavian design continues to have a strong influence in home decor. The essence of this popular style? Pared-down rooms, simple lines and shapes (for both furniture and accessories), and a consistent colour scheme of black and white, elevated with touches of gold. Far from boring, the Northern European current is all about uncluttered space, minimal yet well-chosen accents and works of art, along with design objects that take a special place. In other words, if you’re a minimalist, then this look is for you!

Pretty in pink

“Millennial pink” seems to be having quite a moment. After invading our closets, it’s now making a name for itself in home decor. Consider that good news, since the soft shade works well with neutrals (think white, cream and beige), pairs with most wood finishes (blond or dark) and can even complement metallic surfaces, too. The versatile shade of pink can go the modern route, but is also equally at home in traditional and country-inspired settings.

The great escape

Floral prints have been blooming on clothing for some time now. The latest fad to give a nod to nature? Patterns inspired by tropical forests and used for interior design. These lush palm motifs are sharing the spotlight with bright blue hues — imagine the shades you’d find in sun-drenched lands. Even though our climate is far from balmy, you can easily warm up your home with these exotic notes. In particular, the tropical trend works wonders to brighten up an all-white bathroom, or to bring a summer vibe to your kitchen, no matter the weather or time of year!
