Staying ahead of the design trend curve is no easy task, with countless looks dipping in and out of the popularity pool and a seemingly overwhelming array of options. Luckily we have Vancouver Home + Design Show headliner Cheryl Torrenueva from W Network’s Game of Homes to set our style straight this season. Herewith, Cheryl’s top tips for staying on-trend in 2016.

Handmade Futuristic 

Celebrate one-of-a-kind prints and streamlined shapes combined with the latest in high tech finishes. These mix-and-match cushions in a variety of patterns from geometric to handcrafted embroidery are just the thing to put your space on the cutting edge of design.

Classic Luxury

Introduce classic patterns (think romantic pieces inspired by the renaissance and art deco periods) into contemporary design for an updated, modern mix. Assorted home accessories displayed in cubbyholes or along a mantelpiece add instant interest to your home.

Exotic & Ethnic

Focus on well-traveled elements like filigree metal lanterns, natural inspired hues and ethnic prints to add a dash of character and drama to a space, a la this fresh and fun patio setup.
