While we at Lonny believe that eco-friendly should be a way of life, we listed it as a trend to make everyone aware that green design can also be chic and fun. These tea towels from Hammocks & High Tea are made of organic cotton, use water-based dyes, and are available in a great selection of colorful designs ($20 per towel).
2. High-Gloss Paint
High-gloss paint is the easiest way to spice up a room and make it super glamorous and fresh. We've seen it in bathrooms, in kitchens, and on furniture, and love how it creates visual drama and sophistication (Valspar High-Gloss Enamel Paint, $30 per gallon).
3. Affordable Art
The web has leveled the playing field when it comes to buying art. Sites like 20x200 and Zatista offer affordable, genuine artwork at a low price point and in a variety of sizes and mediums. We love this print by Christian Chaize ($50 for 11” x 14”).
4. Marbleized Accessories
This trend started centuries ago with Florentine marble papers, but recently it’s been revamped and modernized with bold colors and new uses. Laura Naples from Neapolitan Paper + Home on Etsy sells re-covered books with gorgeous marbleized paper jackets and hand-drawn calligraphy, making a great gift or for adding instant pop to a coffee-table vignette (average price is $30).
From the runway to the home, metallics are everywhere this season. This dinnerware set by David Stark for West Elm combines organic forms with jazzy gold metallics that add pop to any dinner table. Use them alone or combine them with your classic white dinnerware to give your tablescape a whole new look. Check out our metallic blog post for more on this trend ($28–$40 for a set).
