The Half Wreath is the Only Way We’re Doing Wreaths This Year

It’s hard to pinpoint exactly what gives the half wreath its undeniable je ne sais quoi.

Here's Our Prediction for the 2018 Pantone Color of the Year

Every year since 2000, color giant Pantone has picked one shade (okay, in 2016 it was two shades) to be the Color of the Year. The announcement, which occurs in early December for the coming year, is a hotly anticipated event in the design world, and invariably produces a great deal of commentary and even controversy. Last year, resident seer Eleanor Busing was right on the money with a guess of leafy green, and this year, I’ve been tasked with predicting which way the design winds will blow. So of course I consulted the most design savvy people I know: my coworkers here at Apartment Therapy. Here’s what they had to say.

Love It or Hate It, This Design Trend is Back in Bathrooms

It was absolutely everywhere in the early 2000s — tiny square tiles, often in mosaics of varying shades, with a bit of an iridescent sheen. Those same tiles were big in the ’70s and ’80s, too, although then you were more likely to see them in shades of white or beige. And since almost everything that once falls out of fashion will eventually cycle back, I’m starting to see those tiny tiles crop up once again.

Pineapples Are Coming For Your Christmas Trees

If you wandered over to Instagram or Pinterest at all during October, you probably saw your share of carved pineapples instead of pumpkins (yes, this is apparently a thing). Not satisfied with just being a symbol of summer, the tropical fruit is also aiming to take over Christmas by standing in for your fir or pine.

Here's Where To Find Those Sage-Green Pumpkins You're Seeing All Over Pinterest

Right around two or three weeks ago, your Instagram feed probably started blowing up with pumpkin patch shots. I can’t exactly point fingers—I posted a little cluster of minis I saw at a restaurant myself. I’m cringing a little bit now just thinking about it. But I digress. If you start exploring all those hashtags and look past the #basic images, you’ll start to notice that green pumpkins are EVERYWHERE this year—popping up while you’re pinning recipes, on lifestyle blogs, in magazines. Move over white pumpkins, 2017 is the year of sage green.

The Outdated Kitchen Trend We Think Can Make a Comeback

The history of design is littered with defunct trends — things that were popular for a brief span of time and are now reviled, or just forgotten. Some of them probably don’t deserve a revival (I’m looking at you, shag carpeting), but others are worth a second look. One thing that falls squarely into the second camp? The mirrored backsplash.

After distilling down some of our findings, we found seven colors and combos that reign supreme, according to the ‘gram.
