Whether it’s because you’re bored, in a spending mood or just want to do a little “feng shui,” a new year is a great excuse to change up your home design. When you do, though, make sure you do it in style. Here are six design trends—some new and some returning—that you’re sure to see during this next run around the sun. Happy decorating!

Many decorating styles come and go, and today, “retro” is making its grand re-entrance. Alluding to an era as much as a genre of design, the term "retro" is most used to describe decor from the 1950s, 60s and 70s. A stark difference from the more demure, all-white or nature-inspired trends we’ve seen in magazines and hotel rooms in recent years, this style is lively, colorful, and in some cases, even wild.

Down here in sunny South Florida, we’re always looking for a good excuse to throw a dinner party – and Halloween is the perfect occasion. This October 31st, add a sophisticated twist to an otherwise spook-filled evening with trendy décor and scary-yummy surprises that are sure to give your guests those “oohs” and “AHHHs” the holiday calls for.
