From antique to brand new, cut crystal is definitely making a comeback and our nostalgic hearts could not be more pleased. Intricately cut crystal or glass adds decadence to stemware and drama to a simple light bulb.

Pantone’s pick for the year may be the red-brown Marsala but our money is on dark blue. From sapphire-toned tiles to dark navy walls, deep blues are helping us live the luxe life. We’re loving the opulent, modern look of navy paired with white marble and mother of pearl.
Mix ‘n Match
From metals to linens, designers are mixing things up for 2015. One-note rooms filled with matching metal finishings are being shaken up with strategic blends of copper and silver, brass with dark bronze or gold and black metal. The same thing is happening in the bedroom (ooh la la!). We’re seeing layers of mix-and-match linen bedding in an array of muted blues, greys and dusty pinks.Base table light of polished brass and matte black cast iron from Museo, museousa.com Parisian blue, cassis rose and lens charcoal bed linens from The Linen Works, thelinenworks.co.uk
We’re so excited to see unimaginative white china disappearing from both restaurants and homes. Ceramicists are breaking the mold and creating unique yet functional platters, plates, mugs and bowls that could easily double as works of art.Alex Marshall plates from Black Bamboo, black-bamboo.com
