As lifelong interiors obsessives, we’d like to think we’ve got our finger on the pulse of what’s hot in the design world.

And while you should never swap out your interior design based on what’s trending, there’s lots of gorgeous goodness happening in the world of interiors, and we wanted to share what we’ve seen in case you find yourself wanting to make a change and are drawn to one of these trends. Read on for our thoughts on everything from the big changes–like kitchen renovations–to the little tweaks suitable for homeowners and renters alike–yes, a rechargeable lamp collection can transform your entire home.

#1: Green and Blue Kitchens

Expansive, all-white kitchens with marble countertops will always have a place in our hearts, but we can’t help but be enticed by the charming, European allure of the colored kitchens we’ve seen populating design magazines and designer projects lately. Interior design style-setters like Matilda Goad and Louise Roe are proponents of painting kitchen cabinetry in a calming sage, while others opt for more vibrant hues like kelly and forest.

If your kitchen gets a ton of light, you can also go for blue hues, which appear a bit more subtle but still make a statement–not to mention it’ll hide stains far better than a white cabinet might.

#2: Rechargeable Lamps

This one’s for all the renters in low-lit apartments, office workers looking to revamp their desk areas, and homeowners who simply can’t make room in the budget for additional electrical wiring. Rechargeable lamps are becoming haute, and we are absolutely here for it.

UK brand Pooky has made their way across the pond, and we’re more than ready to invest in a few (or more) of their pieces. They’ve long been known in England for their cordless selection, which fuses wiring-free technology with old-school design, meaning you can get a lamp that looks vintage, no electrician or ugly wires required. We’re obsessed with the weighty Walter base, and you can’t go wrong with any of their globally inspired lampshade fabrics, though we’re partial to the navy candy stripe. Dotting rechargeable lamps throughout your home–bedside, dinner table, side tables, and even in unexpected areas like on a bookshelf–creates an ambiance far more romantic than any overhead light ever could and comes at a fraction of the price of a full-blown fixture. We can’t get enough.

#3: Red Fixtures

Speaking of fixtures, though…red is everywhere when it comes to lighting, and with good reason. For many, red is an overwhelming color to paint an entire room (although our advice would be: if you love it, go for it), and it’s the perfect complement to a number of the trendy, vibrant hues (it looks particularly perfect with blue). Red lights, from lamp bases to lacquered pendants and beyond, are all over the place, with designers du jour Lonika Chande and Beata Heuman featuring them heavily in their projects–Heuman even sells multiple red fixtures of her own design.

If you’re looking to add an eye-catching touch of modernity to any space in your home–why not try a red light? We promise it’ll make you happy every time you look at it.

#4: Twin Bedrooms

Not too long ago, children’s bedrooms were all about bunk beds; and guest or spare bedrooms were all about the biggest bed you could possibly find to provide your guests with as comfortable of a stay as possible. Well, spaciousness can step aside, because the twin is well and truly in. You can’t scroll an interior’s Instagram account without seeing a twin bedroom lately, whether it’s for a spare room or a kid’s room–and it’s easy to see why. There’s a pleasing symmetry about a room with twin beds centered, and, because the beds are smaller, it’s easy to have fun with bedspread fabrics, bed posts and beyond. If you’re still not sold, take a look at this sweet setup, this perfect boys’ room, and this glam, guest-ready space, and get back to us.

#5: Ticking Fabric

Originally used for mattresses, ticking fabric has been around since Medieval Europe, and it’s enjoyed enduring power for a reason: it’s an absolute classic. If you’re not familiar with the term, it’s that striped fabric once used for a mattress, which you’ll now often see on curtains, pillows, couches, headboards, wallpaper, and beyond. Ticking fabric is durable, stylish, and versatile–we’re particularly partial to red and cream. The fabric looks great both in maximalist rooms, mismatched with other patterns, and as the star of the show, especially in an airy, beachy home. Not to mention–it’d look great on curtains in a blue kitchen, or upholstered on a chair or pillow as a complement to a red fixture, if you take any of our interiors tips above. Really, though, you can’t go wrong, so if you’re ever after a furniture reupholstery–look to ticking fabrics first.
