1. Plants, plants & more plants.  
It started small with the introduction of succulents into our spaces, and now, the trend has grown into larger cacti and house plants. Greens in the home are taking over! Adding a mix of traditional and tropical plants to your home not only improves the air quality but also adds texture, color and life to a space. Even if you don’t have a green thumb, there is a plant for everyone!


2. Go round. 
My favourite new piece in an entryway: a great big round mirror! It’s such a simple, clean way to make a grand statement. Whether trimmed in a brushed brass or a thin wood detail, round mirrors work with almost every decor style. And hey, you can even perch a little succulent or air plant in your round mirror - two trends in one!

Go Round

3. Be original.
There are so many wonderful places to source local and original art today that there is no excuse to not have some in your space. Art that you have chosen in your travels, from a local market or your favourite artist will add a personal touch of character to your home.
