Looking for the latest decor trends? Perhaps we should all take our cue from design and DIY bloggers, who consistently style photos using eye-catching decmodern decor. Not to mention, they often share home tours, revealing their own personal picks for furniture, accessories and more. If today’s featured photos reveal the latest trends, get ready to embrace white walls, fluffy textures, brass lighting, and other fun features that will continue to make a big impact throughout this season and beyond. The design blogs don’t lie!…
Brass lighting is having a moment. A BIG moment. Below we see a brass chandelier from Schoolhouse Electric, featured in the bedroom makeover of A Beautiful Mess blogger Laura Gummerman. See the full makeover here.
Elsie Larson, the founding blogger of A Beautiful Mess, recently shared a tour of her breakfast nook. Like Laura, she chose a brass chandelier to make a big impact in the room. This piece comes from Etsy shop Lucent Lightshop. See the full breakfast nook tour here.
Gold-toned chandelier lighting also serves as a sculptural focal point in the studio of author, event stylist and lifestyle blogger Camille Styles. It’s the You Make It Chandelier from Lindsey Adelman! [featured at Front + Main]
If brass fixtures light the space from overhead, shaggy rugs anchor the room from the ground. In fact, fluffy textures can be found all over the homes of top design bloggers. Here’s another shot of Laura Gummerman’s bedroom makeover. The rug is actually two rugs in one (check out the DIY project), and the Mongolian Lamb Pillow Covers in Rosette (from West Elm) are the perfect blush accents for the bed:
Speaking of blush accents, it’s hard to get any more irresistible than this Flamingo Sheepskin from Aelfie, featured in a blog post devoted to sheepskin at Design Love Fest:
The blush and green nursery below belongs to the daughter of stylist, author, TV host and blogger Emily Henderson. Two words: that rug!!!
Abstract patterns are SO “in”. They’re on artwork. They’re on bedding. And they’re definitely on throw pillows. This Patterned Throw Pillow from Sugar & Cloth (featured in this post) is a DIY project that’s definitely worth trying:
Below we see a nursery that Emily Henderson designed for her good friend Joy Cho of Oh Joy! Aren’t those abstract-patterned curtains fabulous?! If you enjoy abstract designs, start keeping an eye out for them. Soon you’ll begin noticing them on artwork, rugs, furniture textiles, and more!
In many a design blogger room makeover, you will find pastel prints that look good enough to eat. And they often feature cacti and succulents! These pastel prints from Urban Outfitters were spotted in the bedroom of A Beautiful Mess blogger Laura Gummerman (can you tell how much we love the makeover of this space???). See the full makeover here.
And a pastel print from Reality and Retrospect can be found in the guest room/office makeover of Proper blogger Lexy Ward. We’re loving the candy colors! Checkout the full makeover here:
Plants in Baskets
Houseplants never went out of style, but boy are they IN style now (in a big way). Instead of displaying them solely in pots, place the pots in baskets for an earthy-modern look. This photo from an Apartment Therapy tour was featured at Design Love Fest:
And a potted fiddle leaf fig looks divine in a woven basket, as seen below in the studio of lifestyle blogger Camille Styles (featured at West Elm blog Front + Main):
We end with a collection of modern ceramics that seem to appear time and time again on the top design blogs. It’s no wonder that fabulous finds from the likes of CB2 are frequently used as styling props, as well as decor in the homes of our favorite bloggers. In fact, all of the finds below are from CB2. Let’s start with the Roz Small Pink Planter, a handmade stoneware piece:
These Roundish Mini Bowls from CB2 have appeared in photo shoot after photo shoot of many a design and DIY blogger. Why wouldn’t they?! They’re modern, colorful, and affordable!
Here is the mint version of the bowl, featured in the Pastel Easter Brunch of Emily Henderson. Can you spot one at each place setting?…
And here are the bowls again, used to style a post on fruit-infused sugars, featured at Proper:
Remember these SAIC Origin Cuatro Platters from CB2, featured in our post on modern tabletop inspiration?! Sadly they’re no longer available, but the grid trays appeared on many design blogs over the past year.
Here they are in pastel candy and funnel cake tutorials from Paper & Stitch. Their geometric simplicity makes them the perfect modern touch for a variety of photo shoots:
We thank all of today’s featured bloggers for inspiring us with their incredible eye for design. They’ve created a bright, modern world filled with interesting treasures. Now excuse us while we go shopping…
