Graphic tees are definitely a trend, and have been since about 1999. We just can’t seem to shake our affinity for pithy statements and bold declarations emblazoned on our chests. And when they’re this amazing, why should we even try??

When all you have with you is a bathing suit and some sunnies to state your style, a beach towel can make all the difference. This summer I’m noticing tons of bold graphic options everywhere that pack a punch of color on top of it all. I haven’t made a choice yet, but think I need to soon now that summer is officially here!

I’ve been wanting to add some small, staggered hanging planters to a corner of my living room for months now. Everywhere I turn there’s another fantastic hanging planter that I want to add to my home – copper, clay, geometric, you name it. And it would seem I’m not the only one with my eye on these space-saving flora accessories.

Modern and chic or trashy cool? Oh lucite, you’re so controversial! In moderation the transparency of lucite can act as a tool to visually open up a space or add a touch of 60s vibe. Stick to clean lines and minimal color and you’re set.

I remember as a kid absolutely hating fiber tapestry art, especially the brown piece hanging in my aunt and uncle’s apartment. It just wasn’t art to me. Now I think they’re incredible and I can’t wait to try my hand at creating a piece of my own. Whether you love them or hate them one thing is for sure, these wall hangings are experiencing a trendy comeback.

Tie-dye is experiencing yet another comeback, but not just any tie-dye – shibori. Shibori is a Japanese process for resist-dyeing cloth by binding, folding, twisting and compressing. There are tons of ways to manipulate fabric for shibori, each one creating different designs and patterns. And right now it’s showing up everywhere in the home and on the runway.

The new year is kicking off with Aztec-inspired prints across the board. This bold, graphic print has been popping on garments, accessories, and in the home. It’s equally eye-catching in black and white or bold colors, and lends itself especially well to cold weather essentials like cardigans and throws. I can’t wait to get on board!

Trending: Concrete

This petite cement lamp with wood veneer shade from your nest inspired is 17.5″ tall, but only has a 3 x 3″ footprint. Perfect for small spaces and mood lighting.

Hand-cast concrete desk accessories from Magnus Pettersen would add such an industrial look to your desk. (And would also be perfect for the clumsy, such as myself.)

I’m actually super obsessed with this concrete USB drive. And I love that it’s described as “a contemporary artifact”.

I love the juxtaposition of heavy and bold with light and airy in these Weight vases.

Have you noticed, too? Pretty metal utensils covered in lacquer are everywhere I turn. And I love it. My mind is twisting and turning with ideas for projects that I can’t wait to try my hand at!

Triangles.

When pressed to name my favorite shape I inevitably go with the circle. I like its fluid line, how there’s no real start or end to it all. But these days, at least in my own personal shape race, the triangle is closing the lead. It’s like the more angular, striking sister to the circle and I think I’m ready to have more of her in my life.
