I always love the beginning of a new cycle as the winter fades away and the spring blooms begin to burst open.  The same goes with creativity and home decor ideas!  Yes, we see many “trends” fade in and out and never really leave the spotlight but then again we see upstarts pushing aside the familiar to gain their 15 minutes of fame 😂As I sifted through all the “experts” ideas on what they believed were trending, I pulled out five of my favorites (well, I did add a 6th but changing the blog title to favorite six didn’t have the same ring 😉).  Most of these have been favorites throughout my life… but then the abstract art and geometric patterns kinda grew on me because of the vibrant colors and energy.  Anyhoo… here’s what I’ve come up with and I hope you find a new fave of your own:


  • Abstract Art and Geometric Patterns 🌀
  • Teak furniture – chairs, side tables and more
  • Primitive furniture and kitchen accessories 🏆
  • Caning, rattan and wicker…oh my!
  • Workplace in the home living areas
  • And one more… Pantone’s Classic Blue 💙

Geometric walls were making themselves known last year but are emerging even more now as these 3D textures add depth to any room of the house. Photo: L’Essenziale HD


Brown dining table decorated with a branch, with 4 chairs.

As they say, “everything old becomes new again” and this beautifully patinaed door only needed a pair of old saw horses to add life to this eating area. The caning on the chairs is a throw back to the 70’s and 80’s…and I should know because I remember them in our home growing up! Photo: Shake My Blog – France

Cane furniture is definitely making a comeback and I personally love how it adds warmth and beauty to a space. Photo: Shake My

One of my favorite emerging trends is the primitive kitchen accessories and furniture such as this well worn and yummy dining table. The aged wood and character just bursts with stories hidden in all the scratches and dents! Photo: IG @mindulceescuela
