6 Design Trends that I'm Loving Lately
Happy Monday everyone! I spent some of the weekend finding more interior design blogs to follow and came across a new FAV! That said, I’m sharing a few design trends I’m loving lately. If you don’t know of the portland based interior designer, Jessica Helgerson, then you’ve been missing out. She’s super talented and her design eye is right up my alley. All of these finds inspired me to talk about current trends I’ve been loving lately, including work by Jessica.

6 Design Trends that I'm Loving Lately

Circular mirrors – I love a good circular mirror! What I love even more is when it’s mounted by itself, making it the focal point of the space, as it is in the studio reveal designed by another favorite designer of mine, Jacquelyn from Lark & Linen.

Printed tiles – Printed tile, whether on the floor or as a backsplash in the kitchen or bathroom, is necessary in my opinion! Even if you’re looking to create a simple space, adding a patterned tile (if chosen correctly) can really add character without becoming overwhelming.

Subway tiles + Herringbone floor – Just like patterned tile, the combination of subway tile & herringbone floors are another great way to bring character to a room. Sometimes, it’s the little details, like the type of tile or floor, that can make all the difference.

Exposed beams – Okay, I’ve been a long time fan of exposed anything! Whether it’s brick, or in this case, beams, I think it’s such a great design feature and should be incorporated into at least one room in every home. It’s like wainscoting; when done tastefully, the space is that much more desirable.

Patterned wallpaper – Why paint a room a solid color when you can add a patterned print as well? If you follow my blog, you know my absolute favorite look is when just ONE wall is covered in wallpaper, like the example above.

Mix of old world + modern design – When done right, mixing & matching different styles together is pure gold in the design world. Jessica Helgerson absolutely nailed it with this kitchen. Modern chairs, lighting & hardware, mediterranean tile floor & an old school island looks absolutely flawless paired together.

Which is your favorite design trend?!
