    Demand for wood-based decors will increase with both structural and moveable pieces; expect to see cheery lighter shades become more sought after in interior styles.

    Although they still love all white, homeowners are craving more color. Watch for loud gem tones to pique interest more than moodier darks due to their happy and brighter ambiance.
  4. WALLPAPERS THAT WOW
    Removable wallpapers will attract new customers, ones that love pattern and color but are less likely to commit to the messy, pasted on wallpapers of old. It’s love at first sight!
