Decor Trends To Try
Where to start? I have a blank-slate-of-a-house in front of me and these days I'm feeling both excited at the potential and overwhelmed by the possibilities. I can tell you what I want my home to feel like but narrowing down what I want it to look like has been a challenge. I've been pinning overtime with all sorts of inspiration for each room in the house. But there are a few decor trends that keep catching my eye. Don't be surprised if you see some of these making their way into our home.

- Applied mouldings
- Matching wall and trim colour
- Flat paint
Flat paint... I have a new fascination with this. Yesterday I visited the local Benjamin Moore store which had recently undergone a renovation. The store had the upper part of the giant walls painted in a flat navy and the lower part in a stone grey. The effect was stunning. The paint colours had depth and character. Their lack of reflectiveness allowed the walls to recede into the background and the product to be more prominent. I imagine a bedroom enveloped in flat paint in muted tones would feel like a quiet, restful cocoon.

I also love this modern abstract take on a mural. Dina recently installed this gorgeous watercolour grasscloth in her home. Isn't it stunning?
Yet another image which captures some of my favourite looks, notably
- black metal frames: we've seen black metal windows for the last few years and Bailey McCarthy had a fabulous black metal shower. More and more the look is being applied to interior walls as well as exterior doors
- dark painted doors: I love the contrast of white walls and dark doors. We did similar at our cottage and might want to do something like this here at the house as well
