This elegant blue and white table vignette for Legends of la Cienega 2014 designed by Mark D. Sikes struck a cord with me. I’m drawn to the layered patterns, chinoiserie touches and brilliant blues. The timeless color palette is on trend again and here are a few home décor favorites I’ve spotted recently:

Move over brass — copper is back! This warm, rustic metallic element is trending. Whether used in sinks, lighting fixtures, hardware or home accessories, copper accents bring a sophisticated glamour to a space and are perfect paired with neutral palettes.

Woven Wall Hangings by Brook & Lyn

The colorful, eye-catching string wall art in Emily Henderson’s home (featured in Domino) had me thinking how much I love that woven wall hangings are making a comeback. Although the 70s retro macramé are popping up in interiors, I’m most drawn to a more refine, modern look. The woven wall art by Brook & Lyn is just that. The Los Angeles based studio founded husband and wife team, Mimi Jung and Brian Hurewitz creates stunning works that are truly a blend of the new and the nostalgic.  Jung, with a background in art and graphic design, weaves the creations on custom looms that Hurewitz makes. Doesn’t’ that sound so romantic? Each unique piece incorporates natural fibers suspended from simple copper rods. Love, love, love. Take a look for yourself.
