The Verdict Is In:
These are the 5 Home Trends
to Consider Now
Take a look in your closet to see which shades you
tend to gravitate toward most.
And when it comes to achieving clean, sharp paint
lines, one of Nayak’s go-to tools is a premium paint-
er’s tape like FrogTape brand painter’s tape that deliv-
ers the sharpest paint lines possible. Treated with pat-
ented PaintBlock Technology, FrogTape is a foolproof
way to get professional-looking results and eliminate
the need for touch-ups.
Keeping up with the latest décor trends is no easy
feat. That’s why celebrity interior designer, Taniya
Nayak, has pulled together top five home design trends
to provide inspiration no matter your personal taste.
1. Natural and Organic. Bring a touch of Mother
Nature into your home with this trend that accentuates
earthy, organic elements. Nayak recommends adding
layers of textures, like natural raw jute, and incorpo-
rating muted tones, such as terra cotta, moss green or
mustard, to achieve this nature-inspired style.
2. Feminine and Free. This style embraces a pas-
tel palette of pale blue, pink and cream to achieve a
romantic and glam look. Infuse this trend into your
space by creating a striped accent wall with soft-hued
tones or alternate different paint finishes, such as egg-
shell and satin, in the same color for a dimensional
effect. Bring the look to life with fresh greenery and
3. Eclectic and Bold. Nayak says “own your own
style and show it off…make a statement!” An easy way
to achieve this bold trend is to paint a door, an accent
piece or even a ceiling in a bright color, like Jester Red
or Ceylon Yellow. Unsure if bold colors are for you?
4. Fluid and Fashionable. Create a space that
exudes effortlessness by infusing repetitive patterns
and fluid transitions of the same color. According to
Nayak, the best way to incorporate varying shades
of a single color is to use a paint sample strip like
you might find at a paint supply store as guidance to
achieve a serene look throughout the space. Otherwise,
stick to a single shade and carefully play with patterns.
For example, pair striped dining room chairs with a
patterned rug for a fashion-forward statement.
5. Luxe Modern. A little design secret to keep in
mind: mixing metals is back and in a big way. Nayak
encourages DIYers to compliment metallic accents,
instead of matching them. She suggests creating a pal-
ette of two to four metal tones and distributing them
throughout the space in ways that are intentional and
maintain balance. For a look that is glam, yet modern,
consider pairing rose gold with pewter or brushed
gold and stainless steel.
