2016 Decor Trends :: Tribal Rugs

Tribal rugs, famous for their elaborate color and artistic design, have been handcrafted and cherished for centuries. Over the past decade muted rugs in general were in big demand, however in the last year I’ve been spotting more and more rugs in bright, vivid colorways – many showcasing beautiful tribal patterns. Tribal rugs in jewel tones such as blue, red and bright pink are popping up in a variety of interiors and in every inch of the home. I’m loving the revival and was thrilled to hear that interior designer, Naomi Stein of Design Manifest is predicting these exotic textiles are continuing to trend in 2016.

Upon my return from a trip to Morocco, its become clear to me that tribal rugs are here to stay.  Typically woven by hand by nomads in Turkey and Morocco, these rugs are versatile pieces of art.  They work seamlessly in both traditional and modern spaces.  They can be used as a pop of color in a neutral space, or a compliment in saturated room.  Used in virtually every room in the house, from kitchens, to bedrooms, to living spaces, they can be a fun, cozy accent that is sure to bring some vitality to your home.  Worried about mixing other patterns with a tribal rug?  Stripes, buffalo check, mudcloth and animal print work great with these rugs! – Naomi Stein

With the fresh new year, it’s a great time to establish fresh new organizing habits. Getting your kiddos organized is high on most parents’ list too. Getting kids to be organized can be a challenge and an ever changing process as they grow up. Recently I shared some of my favorite tips on organizing for kids with Pottery Barn Kids. One of my favorite is having storage options available throughout the house – including the entry, hallway/staircase and  kitchen. I’ve pulled some really super adorable and stylish options (some that can be personalized) available through Pottery Barn Kids. Most of these items are currently on sale too! Gotta love that!

Color Crush :: Pale Pink

Known to represent kindness and remind us of those sweet flamingos, the color pink comes in many shades. Although I love them all, lately  I’ve most drawn to the hue’s pale, pink side that is often featured in a baby girl’s nursery like the one by Caitlin Creer above. The fresh and cool shade of pink is also popping up in other areas of the home as a primary or accent color. Pale pink takes on a modern, sophistication when paired with a darker hues like black, navy and green.
