What’s the hot design trends of 2014? here are some of my favorite trends predicted by the top design bloggers.

Interchangeable Accents

“I think we’ll see a trend towards chameleon decor. Instead of settling on one fixed look, people will opt for a versatile neutral base and use big-impact accents to easily change their decor.” — Arianna Vargas


Ushering in Glamour

“Move over white walls, in 2014 we’ll be seeing rooms with a lot more drama and glamour. Dark, moody walls in black will be the perfect backdrop to the metallic accessories that we’re all loving right now.” — Jeanine Hays


Say Bye to Beige

“Of course I hopefully predict that color will be the trend story every year in hopes of banishing the boring beige box, but this year it really could happen!” — Christian May


Blossoming Prints

“Florals and Chintz: These tried-and-true fabrics are popping up everywhere in fashion and decor. Mix them with other graphic patterns for a modern look.” — Stacey Bewkes


Metal Mash-Up

“Mixing and matching metallics, such as silver and gold.” — Devon Dyer


A Need for Navy

“Navy blue will be a big trend for 2014. I’m seeing a lot of the shade on the runways, on the streets, in editorials, in chic interiors… I actually think everyone will get it in 2014.” — Mark D. Sikes


Innovative Combinations

“Lots and lots of layering: both materials and textures. We love the look of mixing different metals, woods, and fabrics!” — Jennifer Beek and Georgie Hambright


A Bevy of Blues

“From rich, saturated colors like navy and indigo to bright, vibrant shades like peacock blue and cobalt, blue will continue to reign supreme in the coming year.” — Paloma Contreras



Red, white and black. Glossy. Shiny. Neat. Modern. Clean lines.

This will be my perfect kitchen. I’ve spent a large amount of my day in the kitchen these past few months (thanks to B’s food fussiness) and it got me thinking about my perfect kitchen. It should be me, my fav colors, ample of work space (yes I need a lot of counter space!), the latest baking utensils, my baking haven!

L-shaped with an island (island is a must so I can feed B as well as do my work). Red, white and black/grey.


A 4-6 gas cooking range. yup its big but you need to multitask with B. red or black in color. a glossy or glass range hood.


A 2-3 door fridge, high-end sink with a chopper, colander.


Top it up with the latest utensils in the world of baking, and this is my perfect cooking-baking paradise!
