Every year in December, Pantone, the world-wide authority on colour announces the coming years colour. And every year it’s met with mixed reactions. The Pantone Colour of the Year 2018 was no different. Ultra Violet, a blue-based purple, was met with surprise, excitement and in some cases passionate disapproval.
Happy New Year Friends!
I’m not sure why, but it seems that with the flip of the calendar, comes a whole new set of trends. Trends in fashion, food and of course home decor. While I’m not one to follow design trends, favoring instead to create spaces that are classic and timeless – the kind that allow my clients to grow and adapt. More often than not, what looks best in your home is what feels best to your soul. It is hard not to be curious about what’s trending. After all trends are a great way to see what’s new and perhaps discover something you didn’t know existed. So here are some of my favorite 2018 Interior Design Trends.
As I settle in to write this, I’ve just returned from taking my niece and nephew to see Santa, my second Molasses Spice Cake of the season is baking (the first one disappeared far too quickly!) and Elf is playing in the background. It is safe to say I am in Full. Holiday. Mode. And while I hadn’t planned on writing another post before the new year, I couldn’t let the season pass without sharing some holiday cheer. A Pomegranate, Pear and Prosecco Cocktail. So simple and full of bright, fruity flavours, it’s the perfect solution to the very cold and snowy conditions we’re experiencing in Calgary.
