From interesting mirrors to ugly marble to cut crystal to moody minimalism: our predictions of the design trends that will
Moody, luxe minimalism; our favorite practitioners include Dimore Studio (shown), Faye Toogood, Joseph Dirand, and Nicolas Schuybroeck.
Mix-and-match linen bedding; photograph via Linen Works. Crate & Barrel and West Elm have jumped on the bandwagon with their own lines.
Artisanal coffee-making equipment. Joey Roth's Moka Pot for Blue Bottle is
a current favorite; also see our post on handmade coffee drippers.
A while back we featured the home of New York potter Paula Greif, who set a goal to make everything in her kitchen by hand. Clearly, she was ahead of the curve; handmade dinnerware is everywhere (see Currently Coveting: Japanese-Style Tableware Made in LA).
Pantone's pick for color of the year may be Marsala; but our wall color pick is pale, dusty pink (specifically, Pink Ground from Farrow & Ball, a favorite with Ben Pentreath).
In 2014, we wrote about our attraction to ugly marble (see 10 Favorites: Exotic Marble in Modern Spaces); a current favorite use is the backsplash in Michael Verheyden's kitchen.
Sculptural candles; a set of five handmade Nanao Candles is $26 from Uguisu.
Interesting mirrors, as featured in this bath via Made a Mano (L) and these Obei Obei Wall Mirrors (R).

Not a trend yet (but we hope it catches on): innovative and beautiful storage solutions in the bath, such as Astier de Villatte's Glamorous Soap Dishes from France.
In restaurant interiors, a move away from the industrial, reclaimed-wood look toward lighter materials and mixes of pastels. Shown here, Glassiere in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, via Nana Hagel's blog Far and Close. Also see Pretty in Pink: Spring at Somerset House.
Herringbone patterns continue to look fresh, as in the Herringbone House by Atelier Chan Chan.
Finally, the new "It" plant is the pencil cactus, according to Gardenista. Photograph of Philip Johnson's Glass House by Matthew Williams for Remodelista.
