2015 Home Interior Design Trends


Using handcrafted items is an interior design trend for 2015 and is expected to continue for years! Floral designs are also still popular. The color of the year for 2015 is "Marsala" which is a brownish earthy red, and it will mix well with neutral colors. Using hand crafted items to support the color trends or to add your own splash of color will be a trend in itself. See the articles below which discusses these trends.

You will also find many items to support these trends at my etsy shop here ---> http://chelkay.etsy.com

Christmas Ornaments




I make each of these unique little ornaments by hand. First I cut each piece of glass, then I assemble the pieces, kiln it,  attach a hook, and finally add a string so you can hang this piece directly out of the box. Convo me at Etsy for large volume orders
