Bold, over-scaled, dramatic patterns: Used in wall coverings, fabrics, lighting and home accessories, these graphic patterns are a refreshing way to bring individual personality to a space.
Tatiana, Senior Interior Designer and Design Department Head
Grey stains and paints are one of the newest cabinetry trends: Grey is a wonderfully versatile color, working in almost any design environment from traditional to contemporary. It’s also a practical choice as it hides fingerprints and smudges much more easily than white cabinetry.
Caroline, Cabinet Design Specialist
Industrial elements such as brick, metal, concrete and Edison-style bulbs: This is an aesthetic we’re seeing more of that blends raw materials, beautiful woods and bold colors for a compelling balance of strength and comfort.
Olga, Assistant Designer
Break away from the neutral tones of recent years to a generous use of bold color: You will see Coral, Yellow, Blue and Emerald Green in tile, paint, furniture, bedding and more. Still, it’s important to consider if this trend communicates what you want. We see clients becoming braver in designing their home spaces as a reflection of their personalities and that is a trend in itself!
Sol, Senior Designer
Metallics and transparencies are trending as a way to bring contemporary luxury to any room. We have started to see more options for metallic finish pieces in lighting fixtures, accessories and furniture, especially gold and silver finishes. Lucite, acrylic and other clear materials are showing up in lighting and furniture, supporting a clutter-free, modern and clean appearance.
Vanessa, Assistant Designer

Design Tip: According to Pantone, the global authority on color and the provider of professional color standards for design professionals, Emerald Green is the Color of the Year for 2013. For homeowners looking to narrow their selections, the JDR design team recommends checking out the colors of your sofa, rug, floors and cabinetry. The colors you’ve chosen to furnish your home are a good indicator of the palettes you like. If you want to be trendy, just add a few accents of emerald green accessories.
