|I love this basket used as art! And more texture comes in the form of the cozy throw, and the vintage bench as well as the distressed floors. Just stunning!|

As I’m sure you know, marble in kitchens has been big for a decade or more now, but we’re seeing it trickle down into more than just kitchen counters. Marble floors will be one incarnation, but also accessories; lamps, trays, vases, and bowls. I recently picked up a little vintage marble pedestal bowl and I just adore it! Look for it in antique malls and on Ebay, as well as in chain stores like Crate and Barrel and Pottery Barn.

I do like that we are seeing a return to an emphasis on warmth and coziness in the home. The mid-century mod look that has dominated home stores in the last few years is beautiful – but also sterile. It doesn’t invite lingering; it’s beautiful in the way a museum is beautiful. It’s lovely to look at, but you wouldn’t want to lounge on the couch there, cuddling, sipping tea, reading, or spending time with family and friends. These design trends of nubby textures, rich colors, and sumptuous fabrics create an atmosphere that makes us want to stay home and make memories with those we love. And those are trends I can really get behind!
