10 Trends We Love

DLM home+design staffers weigh in on their favorite trends in interior design

Bold walls
Wallpaper is making its way back into homes in a bold way. Oversized patterns and flocked designs spice up any space. Bold color on an accent wall can completely change the look and feel of a room.

White accessories
White accessories are white hot this year. Love the fresh look of white, but won’t dare go floor to ceiling with it? Accomplish the same look with a soft, neutral palette and punctuate it with crisp white details such as lamps, pillows and decorative items.

Hot! fireplaces

Create some sizzle in your home with a dramatic fireplace. No matter if your style is ultra modern or rustic lodge, an eye-catching fireplace will be a showstopper.

Oversized upholstered headboards
An upholstered headboard creates a soft spot to lean back and read a good book, but it’s also a beautiful design element. Choose a clean, contemporary feel or a traditional style with embellishments.

Home Spas
What woman doesn’t love to treat herself to the spa now and then? Indulge yourself with a special spa experience every day at home. Overflow tubs and multi-spray showers are just a few of the home spa indulgences out there. Steam things up with these additions to your bathroom.

Antique furniture gone funky
Classic styles manage to withstand the test of time. Make them trendy by treating them to a modern-day makeover. Bright paint and fun fabrics are in; dreary, downtrodden pieces are out.

Slab cabinet doors
The sleek styling of European cabinetry is a hit for an updated look in the kitchen. Slab doors are simple, but glossy colorful finishes or exotic wood variations offer style as well.

Outdoor kitchens
Take advantage of the indoor-outdoor lifestyle by planning and preparing meals in nature. Outdoor kitchens have come a long way by withstanding the elements and offering the ultimate in fresh air dining experiences.

NATURAL INSPIRATIONs
Design in Colorado is all about blurring the line between the indoors and outdoors. We open our homes and create outdoor living areas, so why not bring a little of the outdoors in, too? Be it flora, fauna or both, all things inspired by nature are welcome here.

Yellow
Brighten your home with one of this year’s hottest colors—yellow. This hot hue can be found in everything from accessories to furniture pieces. Choose your shade and summon sunshine.
