One of the best ways to stay current on trends and to keep your house looking fresh is by simply looking through the home catalogs you get in the mail. I got West Elm’s this week and I’m loving what I’m seeing!
The key is to flip through figure out what you are liking and seeing how you can incorporate those elements to your own space.
#1. First up is their paint palette for the Fall/Winter of 2016. I love the dark moody color scheme this year! (You know I love a dark room!)
I think if you’ve read my blog you know I love green so the rosemary color is for sure one of my favorites from the palette! Here’s an example of the paint color used in Erika Powell from Urban Grace’s kitchen. (Another reason you don’t have to chose white cabinets.)
#2. One of the things I think West Elm does best is offer affordable lighting options that look way more expensive than what they actually are. In my opinion lighting can be a big statement piece in the room and completely elevate it to the next level. These 3 definitely bring the WOW factor.
I love how this lighting (that happens to come from West Elm) modernizes what would be considered a more traditional space!

#3. Textures (think tapestry, jacquard, suede, velvet) are super popular in the fabric world right now and these pillows are completely on point. Pillows are obviously a quick and easy way to keep your space current and fresh.
Look at the texture on these pillows! They add an element of warming and cozying up the living room.

So there you have it three design takeaways from the West Elm fall 2016/2017 catalog to use to liven up your space!
