Thrift Shop Finds
Sustainability has been a big trend for 2020, and the easiest way to reduce your carbon footprint on the home front is shopping secondhand. Homeowner Janine Morrison’s
sweet small space is a great example: “The armchairs in my living room were a ‘Start the car!’ moment,” she says of finding the pair at a thrift store.

There is something so simple and serene about Japanese design. A deep soaking tub is a great option for small spaces because of its compact design, and who doesn’t want a space to let your stresses melt away? In Mjölk owner’s John Baker & Juli Daoust-Baker’s
former country home, a custom-made version made out of hinoki cypress is minimalism at its finest.

If pink or blue feel too traditional (or you’re waiting to find out the sex of the baby), try creating a unisex nursery for your little one. Fill the space with whimsical animal motifs, or keep it simple with a neutral palette and breezy woven accents, like this treetop oasis designed by Montana Burnett.

Intricate tile has been on our radar for quite some time now, and we’re overjoyed to see it has no signs of stopping. If you can’t create an arched doorway that Spanish baños are known for, don’t fret: cladding your floor or wall in dreamy tile will give you a similar feel.

Why buy your morning cup of joe when you can make a delicious latte from your kitchen? Having a dedicated coffee station by day and bar area by night not only saves you counter space, but it gives guests a place to make their own drinks when you’re entertaining.

Patinated mirrors, worn-in linens and timeless brocade fabric abound! The key to this trend is: the more history, the better. But pieces from the past doesn’t mean your space has to have the look of a bygone era. Designer Colette van den Thillart turns a builder-basic condo into a European-inspired
pied-à-terre with stately antiques.

Continuing with the theme of genderless spaces, a kid-friendly playroom that doesn’t conform to any gender is easier than you think. You don’t have to stray away from color! Just look at this cheerful space filled with floating rainbow hot air balloons and sunny yellow chairs.
