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

Book Review :: Windsor Smith HOMEFRONT

Her interiors are glamorous, yet practical; sophisticated, yet relaxed. She strikes the perfect balance. I’m talking about A-list interior designer, Windsor Smith. She is simply one of the best in the business and so it’s no surprise that her first book, HOMEFRONT (Rizzoli) is absolutely fantastic. Filled with over 200 inspiring images, Smith walks through her process for creating beautiful, functional spaces from design intuition to the home in balance. In the book’s introduction, she explains her goal is to “design beautiful rooms for the way people today actually use them, regardless of their intended purpose, breaking the rules as to how a room ‘should’ function.” Her approach of creating livable spaces in every corner of the home resonates with me. Take a look at just some of the gorgeous images that grace the pages of this book and I think you’ll agree too.

A home in balance is masculine and feminine, antique and modern, light and dark, austere and glam, rustic and sophisticated – all these things in perfect harmony. – Windsor Smith

I’m like an unruly child when it comes to design. There’s always a point where I say: “What if this weren’t the dining room?” – Windsor Smith
