As interior styles come and go, one style has stuck around for a while… natural fibers. Cotton has always been a very popular and durable textile however nowadays you are seeing more rustic fabrics and trends such as jute and burlap. What is the obsession with such a rough textile? Not only is it a messy fiber to deal with but is also kind of rough to the touch!
Those who choose to use it are going for the look more than the comfort factor. The look that jute or burlap gives fits right in with the rustic, natural, refurbished look that is hot in today's trends.
So a new trend, that is not so new, centers around pieces that look old and antique. This new trend is being called rustic or country. If you've ever seen the show Fixer-Upper, than you know the style that I am speaking of. The host likes to use a mix of old antique furnishings and art with rustic flare that creates a space that is inviting and warm without being overly traditional.
Trending Color: Blue, especially Navy.
Today's world of interior design changes it's trending color like the seasons. One of my favorite "trends" today is the love of the color navy. Wheather it's fabric, trim, paint or accessoires you can find this color in almost any design store or magazine.
While I love the color, I'm partial to mixing it with pops of other colors, such as coral & turquoise (other trending colors). When paired with lighter, brighter colors it keeps any navy color from becoming over powering or too dark.
