Polished brass and bronze knobs, door knockers, pulls, and faucets are back in a big way. It’s a trend that’s easy to bring into your home — just swap out your current hardware.

After years of solid painted walls, wallpaper is poised for a comeback. Designers are seeing an interest in all-over, dramatic patterns like paisley, overscaled florals, and abstract designs, many in darker colors.
Strong jewel tones like emerald and amethyst add warmth and personality to a space, and designers see this as another new trend in decorating. Even neutral colors can be intense. Think of light gray walls going to a strong dark gray, or taupe as a deep, rich wall color.
You’ve seen those exposed nailheads on sofas for ages, but you’ll also see them on accent pieces like storage chests, credenzas, and even light fixtures.
