Shelf Idea #1: Color Form

When it comes to home decor and entertaining, I’m all for oversized, organically-shaped serving pieces because they add interest to any table setting and work well with the Color Form trend. The classic white color allows you to mix and match with different styles.

The Crux of Color Form

Color Form is a playful yet sophisticated way to update more traditional elements in your home with unexpected pastel colors, iridescent finishes, and organic forms.

Color Shift

Subtle color variations create visual interest and harmony, keeping the look pulled together.

Sparkle and Glow

These natural touches not only mix matte and shine with a bit of sparkle to draw your eye in but they also connect the space back to nature.

Old Meets New

A playful bud vase is a vintage find that allows you to incorporate flowers into your home in an unexpected way while adding dimension to a stack of books.

Natural Elements

Nature adds its own touch with a sculptural orchid and shimmering crystal while the watercolor print on this Studio NYC fabric we framed lends an ethereal yet modern compliment.

Modern Succulents

Succulents are a natural way to add texture and subtle color to a space. With their sculptural shape they’re both modern and on trend.

Shelf Idea #2: Gallerie

Gallerie is a fun way to incorporate a love of color into your home through bold accessories like colorful abstract artwork, oversized vases, and bright gerbera daises.

Playing the Color Field

What is old looks new: vintage glassware and enamel coasters look right at home with a shiny new vase from West Elm.

Pop Smart

These oversized sculptural vases from West Elm could make any flower look like pop art. The paint swatch artwork is by Studio NYC.

Old School

These vintage canisters provide the perfect place to stash napkin rings, coasters and small accent dishes. Watercolor fabric is by Studio NYC and is available on fabric.com.

Bold glassware not only makes a bright statement but is on hand for an impromptu gathering. Its the perfect blend of form and function.

Bloom Struck

Decorating with flowers brings personality, color, and dimension to any space while connecting you back to the outdoors.

Shelf Idea #3: TerraCottage

Redefine what global style looks by updating with the rich earth tones, woven textures, and artisan elements of TerraCottage.

A Collaged Style

The TerraCottage trend gives us permission to mix different colors, patterns, techniques and cultural styles for one truly global look.

Tactile Touches

Woven textures, whether solid or multicolored, add pattern while embracing handmade imperfections. We curated our books by cover color to emphasize the sunwashed feel and natural colors of this TerraCottage trend.

Perfection Is Passe

mperfect is the new perfect: a handmade ceramic vessel created by Nancy Fire showcases the beauty of imperfection when natural materials and craft come together. Studio NYC’s textured canvas and a large-scale hammered metal candlestick bring in more subtle texture.

Wood Works

Natural wood is an easy way to incorporate TerraCottage style into your home.

Play With Accessories

Think outside the box: try turning a basket on its side to use as a backdrop for color and texture behind a smooth ceramic vessel. We love how the orange color here compliments the blues surrounding it.

TerraCottage Means Texture

Textiles are a key component in adding volume, softness, and textural detail in your home, especially with a long fringe border.
