What’s new in home décor?

Several themes emerged at the Dallas Home and Gift Market, including natural influences, bold patterns, subtle color and clean lines.

Adding a new décor item or accent color can make a room feel fresh, updated or more interesting. It’s similar to the way a new necklace or pair of shoes can refresh an outfit.

Much of what was seen at market is now in stores. Look for continuing trends such as distressed and rustic ideas as well as inspiring ideas in light fixtures.

Lighting with wood accents is plentiful, along with lamps, chandeliers and sconces featuring nature-inspired forms such as flowers, foliage and branches.

Clean lines and shapes of all types from elongated rectangles, ovals and squares add interest to light fixtures. Exposed bulbs abound. Wavy glass gives a new look to outdoor fixtures.

American-made, handmade, urban crafts, upcycled creations and eco-friendly products contrast the trend of modern home décor.

Natural influences continue to be popular. Reach for anything made of driftwood. Geodes are perfect on a desk or displayed on a side table. Consider agate trimmed serving utensils to dress up dinner. Faux agate printed doors on a metal cabinet make a big statement.

Patterns, another easy way to update a room, show up on throws, pillows and rugs, even poufs and ottomans. Mirrors are another quick-change option. Metal-framed mirrors continue to shine.

When it comes to color, look for subtle tones of pink, blue, green and coral, and black and white. And gold or silver mercury glass isn’t disappearing from the home front any time soon either.
