Trending: Zebra, Bar Carts and Swings

Move over owls, hello zebra.  I’ve seen a big increase in the use of zebra prints and patterns in fashion and interior design.  If you’re wild for the look,  incorporate it into your decor by adding a rug, fabric, wallpaper, or accessories.  The trick is not to go overboard.

Have you notice the retro bar cart with wheels.  Yes, the bar cart is here to stay.   Have a small budget?  Here’s a solution: use a tray to organize and display bottles and barware on a counter or console table.  Include simple accessories such as  flowers, candles and lemons.  I like to arrange oranges in a bowl for a pop of color, and they’re healthy to eat.


Who says swings are just for the outdoors.  Add a little fun to your decor with a  playful swinging seat in your family room or kid’s room.   This swing will bring out the kid in you.    

To my surprise, I found this image of  a sunroom incorporating all three of these trends.  Fashion Designer Liz Lange’s sunroom is both chic and playful.  Designer Jonathan Adler incorporates these trends  in Liz’s Westchester home.

Get the look:  Bar carts: High Street Market,  Pottery Barn,  Swinging seat: Serena and Lily, Rug:  Ballard Designs, Sheepskin: Ikea
