A Trend Takeover

June 2, 2014

The top trends in fashion and interior design are constantly evolving, but the good news is that many of these trends have a timeless appeal to them. So don’t worry if you’re feeling like your home décor or wardrobe is in need of a serious zhushing. We will keep you in the know of the biggest trends taking over BOTH industries!

Black, white and grey is a timeless trend that looks great in your home and in your wardrobe. We love this clean and simple look that has become a very modern, luxurious staple for fashionistas and designers alike. The runways and fashion magazines are full of black and white pairings. We’re particularly loving the classic look of black and white striped shorts (above top right) for Summer.

Interior spaces are taking full advantage of this trend as well, in almost every room of a home. Here at PoshTots, we’ve got black, white and gray galore options in our bedding, furniture, lighting and décor offerings.

The black, white and grey trend also comes alive with the introduction of a pop of color…

Taking a nod from the colorful 60′s, the geometric trend exudes a stylish excitement with a modern twist. Today, geometrics feel more luxurious, yet still have that familiar sense of fun. In interior design, geometric shapes can be used on walls, floors, furniture or in room décor. The most important thing to remember is that bold geometric patterns are all about being daring in the use of shapes and colors.

Geometrics have also become a popular trend among clothing designers as well, and can be seen in several different clothing lines for Summer, including Michael Kors, Tommy Hilfiger and Tory Burch (as seen above). These fun shapes work with any array of colors from wild and bright, to soft pastels.

We love to incorporate this trend in our selection of bedding, wallpapers, rugs, pillows and seating (as seen above). Going geometric is gender neutral and can liven up any space. Chevron has been one of the more popular patterns in the design world (top right photo) and is still going strong into Summer.

Don’t let a little trend scare you! Make it your own in both your wardrobe and your home.

With Spring in full Swing, entertaining season is certainly upon us! Who doesn’t love a reason to celebrate by dressing up in your formal finest and enjoying a fantastic fete. Here at Posh, we love the idea of putting together a chic tablescape, not only for a formal soirée, but for everyday entertaining, as well.

Pulling inspiration from some of our favorite Pinterest pins, we styled three tablescapes that are sure to impress all season long. From classic solids, to patterns aplenty, PoshLiving has stylish tabletop treats in all colors and styles— perfect for the blushing bride or newlywed to the seasoned entertainer.

We adore the classic look of blue and white china…add a touch of gold for an unexpected twist! Don’t be afraid to coordinate patterns, the key is in sticking to a similar color-way; this mix works because of the grounding blue elements.

We love the playful mix of the black and white stripes with super colorful butterfly china. The freeform pattern of the butterfly china and the cherry blossom branches on the runner are a strong contrast to the geometric nature of the stripes, however it all seems to work in perfect harmony. Perfect for your next garden party!

She’s the mother of your children, so of course you want this holiday to be extra special for her. A perfect Mother’s Day doesn’t have to mean a big expensive brunch or extravagant jewelry (although both are welcome). Having small children doesn’t mean you have to put together this day by yourself and Mom will appreciate some adorable efforts from them.

Happy-Mothers-Day

Here are a few ways to keep your little ones involved in the Mother’s Day preparation:

BREAKFAST

What’s on the menu? Ask your kiddies what they think Mommy’s favorite breakfast is. You might end up with an interesting mix of foods, but it comes from the heart. Of course you will have to do most of the cooking, so brush up on those skills.

Depending on your children’s ages, have them help with things like mixing the ingredients you need, pouring juice or cereal, choosing the plates and cups to use, or even picking some pretty flowers to go with it. Mom will appreciate a nice breakfast in bed and the kids will be excited to do it for her!

We love the new Mother’s Day commercial from Cheerios that shows how far a little thought can go with kids. Check it out:

GIFTS

While Hallmark cards are lovely, every mother loves a handmade touch! Get the kids to draw pictures and help them with writing if needed. Crayons, markers, glitter, and glue can go a long way! If your tot is too little, put their little handprint or footprint on a card to give it a personal touch.

Mom deserves a spa day or that necklace she’s been eyeing, but make sure to find out what special gift your child wants to give her. Every child should offer up a handmade coupon book at some point in his or her life. Whether it’s a day in the park, a minute long hug, or a hilarious makeover, Mom will appreciate what they have to offer.

Coupons

Need a last minute gift idea? PoshTots gift certificates are always available! Check out some other Mother’s Day ideas here!

Celebrate Mom this Sunday in whatever way feels best, but remember the kids are never too small to show their love and appreciation. Happy Mother’s Day!

Hollywood is buzzing with the news that Ashton Kutcher & Mila Kunis are expecting a baby girl later this year! The former That ‘70s Show costars are the perfect pair, if you ask us, and are quickly on their way to becoming the coolest parents around. Taking inspiration from their carefree characters Michael Kelso and Jackie Burkhart from That ‘70s Show, we pulled together a 70s mod inspired room for their precious tot!
