Soft tans, ruby reds and ornate florals are three top trends on our radar. Trend Alert showcases the crème de la crème of decor. Keep up to date with the latest collections and be inspired to invest in style and quality.

Soft Tans

Because this warm hue is found in nature, it can be used to add an organic element to any space. Layer a variation of textures and finishes to achieve a richly tactile aesthetic.

Ruby Reds

Whether applied in subtle touches or as an all-over effect, this vibrant and arresting
shade will immediately draw the eye. Pair with black and white for a graphic feel.

Ornate Florals

A pattern that never dates, florals are a wonderful way of introducing delicate detail into an interior. Balance is key here, so be sure to place them alongside bold plains and strong silhouettes
