What's Trending for 2014:
The Sexy '70s
The '70s are making a comeback. Home decor is going retro – remember your mom’s flotaki rugs or orange butterfly chairs? Think brown hues, sumptuous fabrics and vintage rattan taking on a modern spin while evoking a sense of nostalgia for this decade.
Chia Packs a Punch
Once a “pet” plant in a pot, chia seeds are now hot as a health food. They are packed full of protein and antioxidants. Health food junkies and consumers are stocking up and mixing these seeds in smoothies and salads for a nutritious kick..
Mood Metallica
Glitz mixed with glam. Jazz up your home with sparkling metallics of all sorts – gold, silver and copper, a predominant tint.
Comfort Food
Mac ‘n cheese, grilled cheese sandwiches and cheese fondue are ultimate comfort foods that are coming back with a new twist thanks to the abundance of delicious artisanal cheeses. The new trend has top chefs sourcing from farms and local producers to create homey, comfort food menus. No need to hide your guilty pleasures. It’s time to feast on all the specialty foods that feed and fuel your comfort zone.
Tropical Escape
Take a stay-cation right in your own home. Flora and fauna, and tropical prints are trending motifs in home décor from accessories and decorative accents to fabrics and wallpaper. Create your little getaway with decorative touches that transport you to the tropics.
All Bubbled Over
Prosecco is the new champagne. Cocktails are coming up fizzy; sodas and fruit drinks are sparkling – even coffees have got some fizz. It’s easy to bubble over with any of these bubbly drinks.
