Yes, animal print! The controversial trend is back in the fashion world and is rearing its wild head in interior design as well. And just like oversized floral prints, animal patterns are going supersized too. Incorporate your favorite leopard spots or zebra stripes in monochrome for a Scandinavian twist. Use prints on scatter cushions or curtains with curtain hardware to match! Choose contemporary iron drapery rods with iron finials and iron holdbacks for a sophisticated look.
If you’re feeling like a big splurge, go for a reupholstered chaise and accessorize this statement piece with neutrals.
2) Deeper and Darker

The fall trends saw a rise in jewel colors and rich tones in every corner of the home, from the walls to soft velvety textiles. But winter is taking deep color to a whole new, darker level. Dark colors like navy, charcoal, and ash are adding a deep minimalist aesthetic to every room in the house. There are few things as striking as a black kitchen with stunning focal lighting above the kitchen island.
Complement a dark kitchen with minimalist café curtains in an earthy olive or grey sheer. Choose a café curtain rod as an understated way to let the curtains steel the show.
3) Silvery Tones

Earlier this year, we saw shimmery metallics pop up interiors through warm copper, gold, and bronze. But now the coldest season has brought über cool silver with it! Silver is especially at home in a contemporary interior in the form of contemporary artwork or sculpture, scatter cushion and hardware. Silver and pearlescent fabrics can add some subtle glam to an interior without taking over.
Choose curtain hardware that seems to disappear like an acrylic curtain rod to keep the emphasis on the silvery curtains. Or, choose neutral curtains in charcoal or a grey with blueish tint and pair it with a curtain rod with a silver finish and contemporary finials.

Tweed, created in the 18th century and made popular among the aristocracy in 19th century Britain, is back and better than before. Classic tweed styles have undergone a makeover for the better!
Jump on the modern revival train by opting for clean and straight lines. Think rectangles and squares, but with a soft twist. Tweed rugs pair beautifully with neutral nomadic and Scandinavian trends.
Combine this sophisticated tactile trend with alpaca wool throws, and bold printed scatters or artwork. When it comes to window dressing keep things snug with dress curtains supported by a heavy duty curtain rod.

Rust captures all the warm colors of the desert; deep burnt orange, terracotta, caramel, and desert sand. Perfect for the American nomadic interior style, filled with leather and creamy textiles. Incorporate orangey hued accessories like a hanging tapestry, ceramics and planters, and wall color to set the earthy tone.
Keep your style palette to other earthy tones like stone and olive for a harmonious design. Or add moody depth to the space by creating a focal rust wall with adjacent charcoal walls. Complement the look with natural fibers in the curtains and woolen sandy-colored blankets. Choose curtain hardware that showcases raw elements like metal drapery rods and curtain holdbacks.

We’re seeing a move toward juxtaposing masculine and feminine design in interiors. The days of purely masculine or feminine motifs are behind us as neutral and androgynous styles begin to take shape. Now a heavy set armchair, usually in leather, can come in girly florals or soft pearlescent duck egg. The result is an armchair that demands attention but has a touch of whimsy and elegance that it lacked before. Pinks can now even grace a loft or industrial style interior without looking kitsch – who knew?
Add a little femme glamour to a masculine interior by adding feminine touches with tasseled material or more ornate décor items like a gilt mirror. Choose ornate window finishes like floral holdbacks and ornate finials.
