Color Trends :: Olive Green

I’ve been thinking adding a contributor for along time, but it wasn’t until I met Megan Bachmann that I decided to do it. Megan is a mother and has a great sense of style and aesthetic. She has a background in fashion, passion for interior design and writes her own blog, Otomi Home. I’m thrilled to welcome Megan to Simplified Bee!

Thank you Cristin for the sweet introduction. I am so excited about olive green as an upcoming color trend for 2015. Elle Decor recently did a feature on up & coming colors and I’m particularly excited about this one. Olive green is so lovely in interiors because it borders between being a neutral and a color, depending on how you use it. It can be bold or subtle, modern or traditional. It looks amazing paired with a multitude of colors include white, black, navy, orange, and turquoise. And of course it looks incredible paired with brass accents. Olive green just feels new again. Here are some inspiring rooms using olive green…

Design Trend :: Metallic Throw Pillows

I’ve been spotting them everywhere these days. Metallics whether that be gold, silver, bronze or copper are giving interior furnishings, fixtures and textiles the Midas touch. Shimmery throw pillows are a great way to embrace the trend without going overboard. Just like animal prints, a little metallic touch goes a long way!

Here are a few chic metallic throw pillows that rose to the top of my list.

Friday Finds :: Feather Patterns in Home Decor

One trend that has taken flight is the use of feathers and feather patterns in home decor. Whether real, drawn or manufactured, they add an exotic feel to any space and are being featured in a wide variety of home decor items like rugs, lighting and wallpaper. I personally love the look.

Design Trend :: Brass in Home Decor

For some time now, silver or nickel decor, hardware and accents have dominated interior design. In the past few years however, golden brass tones have been making a comeback in home decor. And although many of my clients aren’t willing to make the leap just yet, brass is back in a big way. Whether shiny or honed, the rich warm metallic is being featured in every inch of the home.
