Be on the lookout for these trends that showed up at market this spring. You will see these trends popping up in stores, vintage finds and online. You can incorporate these ideas in your purchases and DIY projects for a punch of style this year! We already have some of these trends showing up in our online shop, The Mercantile, with more coming. PLUS, there is a download at the bottom of this post so you can print this list and take it shopping with you!
Graphic Pattern Dishware – These are EVERYWHERE. You will see high contrast patterns on plates, bowls, mugs, serving trays and vases this year. This blast of texture is easy and fun to add to your dinner table or decorating stash.
Pretty Littles – Table top fashion is at an all time high. Layering beautiful treasures on a stunning tray is all the rage. Get smaller items that demand attention and make them your coffee table star. Think magnifying glasses, vintage shears, letter openers, found items and collectibles.
Botanicals – Botanical prints, textiles, plates and even dried florals are all over the place. Mix these into your home as they are in style now, but in my opinion absolutely timeless! I have some French botanicals you can download in The Mercantile HERE!
Charcuterie – This delectable appetizer situation is in full force. Cutting boards and precious accessories make entertaining fun. You can jump on this bandwagon and serve in style for dinner, snacks or parties.
Rattan – The old school rattan webbing you see on antique cane chairs debuted on all the things. This pattern showed up in a big way on pottery, dishes, planters, baskets, vases and furniture. If you see it in the thrift stores, scoop it up quick. Trust me – you will see this in a wide variety of ways this year.
Wood & Woven Chandeliers – Wood beads and woven shade chandeliers are hot. They kind of had a moment a few years ago and I’m glad to see this trend resurface. The material tends to be more affordable and mixes so well with a variety of styles.
Branches – Yep. The biggest styling accessory I saw at Market (and Round Top) was branches. Some had leaves, some were bare, some were wispy and some were basically small tree trunks, but any way they were cut, natural branches were a universal design idea! I love this trend because we can all emulate it in our homes for free. What a win. They are dramatic and fill a room with grandeur in a way very little decor accessories can. Go get out your saw and fill a vase or decorate a buffet with nature.
Height – Risers, cake stands and pedestals are still on track. These will likely never leave the trend list because of the heavy duty lifting they do for your decor. Height variation is key to a beautiful table, vignette or design and these pieces are essential to pulling off elevation. Make sure you have some classic base pieces to work with.
Cast Iron – There were so many accessories made from iron this year! I love this timeless material and the unending potential it has. Iron figurines, candlesticks and decor pieces add depth and character to any space.
Cloches – Again a timeless decor piece you need to have. Just about anything looks better when showcased under glass. It elevates the small and ordinary into a priceless piece of art. Many cloche sets were on display and my favorite part was the wide variety of bases used in these decorating combos. Lots of wicker, metal, ornate wood and butcher block made beautiful glass cloche and base pairings. They can be on the pricey side, but I promise, you will never regret having these beauties on hand.
Color – I was surprised and delighted with all the color I saw at market this spring. The colors were warm and cozy, based on shades we would normally see in fall, but softer. Think hazy orange, mustard yellow, salmon, dusty pink, washed blue and sage greens. While the colors were muted, they were still bold and breathtaking.
Marble – Marble has been around for ages but I feel an upsurge happening in decor. I saw lots of marble trays, cutting boards, marble topped furniture and accessories. Basically if it can take it, marble was on it. Look for vintage marble to mix in with the new for that yummy mix of fresh trend and cozy vintage.
Mix Media – This trend should say mix media/dimension/pattern. Possibly a favorite trend of mine is the way so many textiles, patterns and layering are being thrown together. This trend is the most obvious in pillows, tea towels, prints and small furniture. I think we can easily take this idea and incorporate it into our DIY and crafts as well!
White Dishes – I love a white dish and was so happy to see them repeatedly on display. Many are reproduction looking ironstone, others were silky white with tons of built in patterns. Old school soup tureens and vases are popular as well. Many of the holiday figurines and serving pieces I saw were a creamy white as well.
Faux Flowers – Not like you are thinking. Flowers were all over the place, but in fun materials! Many vendors showcased ceramic, metal, wooden and fabric flowers. I love this trend of adding a natural element with a fun twist into your home.
