Hey guys and gals.  Happy Valentine's Day!!

I hope you are getting ready for an evening with your special someone?  Or, maybe it's a romantic night home?  Whatever it is, I hope each and every one of you have a grand time.

Before the fun festivities, I wanted to talk about design trends I'm seeing for 2017.  This past weekend, I was able to attend our local Home Show and there was a lot going on!  Did you see us poking around on Instagram?  Just check out the Tub on Wheels...who doesn't need one of those!  #2017TrendAlert...I'm just kidding, but it did look like a fun time. 

Back to the subject at hand, here are five design trends I noticed while browsing through the Home Show.

Unique Lighting

Lighting is my jam and this year they didn't disappoint.  The lighting selections continue to be very industrialized as we have seen in years past.  But I noticed a variation in the metals being used.  Sconces seemed to be all the rage (loving!)  I think a few of these would make great bedside lamps.

Fun Sinks

There were a ton of fun and unique sinks at this year show.  I loved all the color and shape and materials.  I noticed several stone sinks which I thought were different.  See the two on the bottom of the first picture, how cool would those look in a bathroom?  And all the yummy copper below that!


Mosaic Tile

Last year I noticed the immergence of mosaic tiles.  These are certainly a trend that's here to stay for 2017.  Several of the flooring vendors had samples.  They make such a fun piece for smaller rooms like a powder room or laundry. 


Herringbone seemed to be the popular pattern for 2017.  It's not new to the scene, but it's one that will remain classic.  I feel in love with this cabinet.  I really wanted to sneak it in my purse, not that it would be obvious.

Hammered Copper

I noticed so much hammered copper at this years show, mainly in the form of sinks.  I'm loving this for a farmhouse look.  They even had a razorback sink for this Arkansas fan.  Man Cave project? 

One last little nugget, I also seemed to have been drawn to the cabinet selection stands.  I spent hours testing out the different cabinet options, like how to hide your knives and spoons bins.  Pure brilliance!

Which trend are you planning or wishing to use this year?


  1. I love the herringbone chest of drawers, but you are right, someone would have noticed if you tried to sneak it out! The hammered copper is also lovely.

  2. Spoon bins!!! I need those in my life! Great roundup

  3. I love herringbone. That tub had me laughing! Thanks for sharing at the Inspiration Spotlight Party @DearCreatives shared.

  4. I've been lusting after a copper farmhouse apron front sink for our farmhouse for a long time.... but the price. :-(
    Love the hidden knives & spatulas idea too.

    I came to visit from Over the Moon link party; I hope you'll find time one day to stop by the 4Shoes!

  5. Looking at your pic's I am going to love decor in 2017! Thanks so much for sharing this with us at the DI & DI Link Party, loved seeing an sharing it.
