1. Welcome bold colors into your space.
"During the pandemic, everyone was cocooning and investing in making their home cozy, peaceful, and meditative. Now, as we reemerge into a social world, people are taking more risks with their decor to make their spaces feel exuberant and celebratory, primed for gathering with friends and family. Customers are now gravitating toward bold and unexpected color combinations in general. Specifically, shades of ochre — like yellow, gold, rust, and aubergine — have been particularly popular."

2. Embrace a blend of vintage and new.
"[We have] always celebrated the pairing of vintage or antique pieces with new, artisanal products ... [and] have seen customers really embrace this trend by contrasting vintage and contemporary items — this not only adds visual appeal but lends to storytelling in your home."
3. Don't be afraid of mismatched prints.
"Incorporating print and pattern is an easy way to add texture or dynamic elements to your space. This can be anything from a textured fabric in a neutral palette or an unexpected combination of mismatched prints."
