From luxurious showers to exquisite tiles, spa-like sanctuaries have continued to gain momentum on Pinterest. Natural textures and neutral color schemes — like the relaxed grey and white palette in this Cameron MacNeil-designed bathroom — are also right on trend.
Metals shine in any room, so it’s no surprise that searches for mixed metal finishes were up 423 per cent last year. In designer Whitney Keeley’s Toronto bedroom, a brass side table and chrome task lamp punch up the otherwise neutral space.
A fashionable flooring style in the 1970s, terrazzo is seeing a resurgence in popularity thanks to a composite of modern materials like marble, granite, quartz and glass. Look for this pattern on everything from home accessories to wallpapers, or on countertops and backsplashes, as seen in this cool kitchen.
Dubbed the fifth wall of a room, a statement ceiling transforms a space from the top down with intricate texture or bold color. In their eclectic Manhattan dining room, homeowners Michele Varian and Brad Roberts embraced a simple square-patterned ceiling design to complement a mishmash of wallpapers.
If statement ceilings transform a room from the top down, then herringbone floors elevate it from the ground up. Laid here in a Scandi-inspired dining room, the centuries-old pattern adds style and dimension.
With intricate designs and maximalist flair, bone inlaid pieces add the perfect amount of grandeur to a room. Case in point: the soft grey console in this light-filled foyer.
Searches for colorful doors were up 121 per cent on Pinterest last year, proving that a bright and bold entrance is the new way to welcome guests. Designer Jennifer Scott’s own front door features a cheery red hue and a macramé wall hanging.
The trend toward indoor plants took root on the popular social media site, with users favoring spaces with vibrant green foliage and pops of color from flowers.
Saves on Pinterest for rooms that featured large-scale artwork blew up by 637 per cent on Pinterest, proving that a single striking piece is just as impactful as a gallery wall. In this European-inspired home, a graphic photo of a woman against stark white walls instills a gallery-like feel.
Sage rose to the top of the new neutral list in 2017, with searches up 170 per cent on Pinterest. In this country bedroom by design duo BlazysGérard, a soft sage hue imparts a serene and sophisticated feel.
