“When designing a space, we like to start with one key piece that really speaks to us, then design from there. Perhaps our jumping-off point is a really fabulous rug, then we pick out the other elements in the space to work with that piece.” —LAUREN LEARNER, LIVING WITH LOLO

“In a way, we are always pushing to look past trends toward elements that stay classic. How can we make our client’s homes feel current and modernized without feeling like an ad for trends. Our look should weave timeless elements into the foundation and then sprinkle the latest releases throughout to build up the layers of character.” —LORI PARANJAPE, MRS. PARANJAPE DESIGN + INTERIORS

“Unconventional materials bring the unexpected element and dimension that helps a space read more ‘finished.’ Use them instead of a bolder item—layer them in with neutrals instead of feeling pressed for a ‘bold pop’ or too much color.” —JACY PAINTER KELLY, JACY PAINTER KELLY INTERIORS

“Think old meets new—incorporate items that feel lived in or vintage to complement and create a relaxed modern aesthetic.” —GINGER CURTIS, URBANOLOGY DESIGNS

“I keep an eye on what’s happening in the fashion world to forecast what’s next in the home industry. U.S. tradeshows are also a great way to take a look at what’s coming next.” —RAYANA SCHMITZ, FIREFINISH INTERIORS

“As a designer, I’m always gravitating toward spaces that seem to honor the past and celebrate artisans. Effortless, imperfect, and unafraid to be a little unraveled. I always chase the feeling in design of living in the present with young kids and showing them the best the earth has to offer in materials and talent. Amethyst Home very much gravitates toward a natural, minimal aesthetic, which requires stunning craftsmanship of the furnishings to pull off a lighter design look.” —MONICA FREEBORN, AMETHYST HOME

“To create the perfect space that is captivating and welcoming, we start with a focal point. Based on that item we pull in colors, textures and different scaled patterns in fabrics, rugs and materials to create the perfect balance and harmony between materials.” —RENE WIRTH, WIRTH DESIGN GROUP

“If you see a thing two or three times start looking around seriously. If you see it again, a trend is happening. It is also important to realize that trends develop more slowly than people thing. So what seems like a very small blip this year could be a huge trend next year, as it takes time for trends to filter through the different parts of the market place.” —MEG CROSSLEY & MORGAN MICHENER, ME&MO CREATIVE

“It’s easy to spot trends when it wasn’t around 2 years ago. Right now, plaster, earth tones, natural weaves, and fluting are the hot trend! I love mixing some of these more trendy styles in my work and especially love bringing in classic elements when a client has a tiny bit more modern flair. It helps the space feel more curated and welcome.” —SAM CRAM, SAM CRAM DESIGN

“Trends come and go, so we do our best to design for our client’s lifestyle while staying true to our brand. By incorporating interesting design pieces, we help our clients create homes that are refined and comfortable with furniture and finishes that don’t compromise style or quality.” —WHITLEY WIRKKALA, OAK & LINEN INTERIORS

“We love bringing texture into a space with plush wool or natural rugs, unique pillow shapes, as well as anything woven in items like lighting, art, furniture, and decor.” —KAITLYN WOLFE, ICONIC DESIGN + BUILD

“We design classically, sprinkling trends from colors to textures, some accessories, and even building materials. One trend we are seeing a lot and engaging in is irregular rugs. We love the striking designs Jaipur Living has created to really own the floor! Whilst shaping a new outline in design (literally), sporting an unconventional shape that can be used in unique ways and spaces. Whether curvy, geometric, or angular, these all boast a bit of out-of-the-box thinking, which we are ready to embrace.” —BARETTE WIDEL & CHRISTINA BOSCHETTI, WIDELL + BOSCHETTI
