Tomorrow! Yes, tomorrow! Join us at Coveted Home on the Country Club Plaza (Kansas City)
We’ve done our research, scrolled through countless resources and crunched the numbers:
2017, What’s in. What’s out.
Patterns: Go bold or go home. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns. But don’t go overboard. There is an art to the craft of mixing patterns into a room. We find patterns more crucial than ever, especially with rooms trending towards a whitewashed finish — patterns will keep your space from looking sterile or like an Emergency Room…
*For further pattern inspiration check out Jaclyn’s full write up in Darling Magazine “5 Tips for Making Patterns Work in Any Room”
Color: Gone are whitewashed, solemn interiors. Replaced by energetic greens (see Pantone’s color pick “Greenery” for design envy!) blues and tropical hues.
Cork: Floors, walls, wine bottles and all. We can’t be sure how long this one will last but it’s an oldie/goodie situation.
Handmade (Move Over DIY): Artisanal, handcrafted pieces are in. We’ve certainly seen this with the popularity of our lines of ceramics by Helen Levi and Convivial Productions in our shop. Our Pottery Collection is full of handmade pieces from artists across the world.
Meditation Area: Everyone needs a little retreat, right? Now’s the time to create a space within your home where you can go to reflect. This can be a separate room or a little nook, such as the Meditation Corner interior designer, Jaclyn Joslin placed in this recent project.
Art Inspired Wallpaper: It’s not like we dedicated an entire blog post to this movement, oh wait… we have! Art Inspired Wallpaper.

What to Avoid in 2017
Subway Tiles: One of the easiest traps to fall head first. We still adore the look, but enough is enough.
Fiddle Leaf Figs: Not only are these gorgeous trees among the easiest to kill, they’re also falling out of style… maybe it’s their finicky nature. If you’ve adapted and manage to have raised one well, keep on keeping on, but if you missed this one, let it go!
We’d love to hear your thoughts. What’s in? What’s out?
Be Sure to join us on Instagram, where the magic really happens, sharing images from the shop, current projects and featured content. Enough to get the creative juices flowing! See you lovelies there.

Top 10 Halloween Decorations
This year, step away from the cliche, with these thoughtfully curated accessories and yes, that does include a crystal ball! By mixing traditional Halloween decorations with these items, you can get away with a less theatrical and more elegant feel. Keeping the palette to a simple black and white (with the exception of pumpkins of course!) makes things easy. Stretch out a cobweb here, a cobweb there, whip up your finest witches brew and let the good haunts roll!
We want to share some of our current favorite “Staff Picks” with you. Each team member has selected a handful of their favorite items in the shop to help give you some holiday gift ideas. We’ve selected some candles, throws, pillows, and home decor items that we adore. We’ve also included some of our favorite pieces of jewelry, accessories, and chocolate bars. And we’re pretty sure a few people on your shopping list will love these things as much as we do.
The inventory at Coveted Home is always changing and evolving. Each week, we are getting shipments of new items and refreshing the showroom. You can stop by to visit us on the Country Club Plaza or follow us on Instagram and Facebook to see our newest items.
