There are few things in the design world that stay consistent. Trends change, new products emerge and classic designs are constantly reinterpreted. But despite the constant stream of changes, there is one thing that has remained Classically Current – black and white. This sophisticated and timeless color combination is not only striking and bold but the ideal match for any color palette. It provides the perfect base for any design that both minimalists and traditional interior lovers will appreciate.
When you think of feminine colors, shades of pink are one of the first colors that come to mind. For quite a while now, millennial pink has been a hot color in the design world. But I feel the winds of change a-blowin’ and I’m calling it: This season I’m predicting that lilac is the new blush!
October has been a month of travels, several team member birthdays (including a milestone for this one right here) and TONS of inspiration. As you probably know – because I constantly talk about it! – October brings my annual trip to High Point Market. It’s the best opportunity for the industry to discover new introductions from the best design houses and manufacturers in the US. This is a market visit I eagerly anticipate each fall so, if you haven’t checked out my HPMKT Recap, give it a read.
As this eventful month comes to a close the Ohorona24.in.ua team is happy to share our new sources of inspiration. From bold furnishings, to fun lighting, to gorgeous accents we can’t wait to share our finds with you. I hope you discover your next obsession here too!
Art can be transformative. As both art lovers and interior designers, the Ohorona24.in.ua team often encourages our clients to select art during their travels that remind them of their adventures abroad. Here’s a secret: one couple actually gives each other unique art pieces as gifts for birthdays and anniversaries. You can imagine over a marriage of 30 years what your house might come to look like or what artists you might discover!
You can expect to find tile on walls and floors in the bathroom, kitchen and laundry room. What should be unexpected is the way you apply them: creatively! It’s one of the easiest materials to maintain and the fact that they come in more finishes, shapes and sizes than we can count makes them a designer’s dream. There are so many exciting things happening in the tile world right now that we needed some one-on-one time with Miguelina Veras of . Here, she shares the inside scoop on all the latest tile trends.
When it comes to design, there is always something more than what meets the eye. Whether it’s opening up the room or making it feel more intimate, every item has a practical and visual function. It’s proof that when it comes to design, it’s all about the details. Let’s take moulding and trim for example. Practically speaking crown moulding is used to cap a wall, but visually it adds depth and dimension to the space and makes a huge impact.
Play with proportions
Moulding and trim can be used to add dimension, separation, and intimacy to the space. Traditional moulding and trim profiles like crown moulding and baseboards give the wall a visual starting and ending point, which makes the ceiling closer. It also protects the ceiling and floors from damage.
But don’t be afraid to use moulding and trim to divide the space up in interesting ways though. A chair railing on the wall creates a horizontal line. Visually, it separates the top from the bottom and practically, it protects the wall finish from potential furniture damage. Add a skylight feel to your ceiling by using moulding to create different sections.
A more modern way to use moulding and trim is around doors. Using casing around a door adds visual dimension. It creates an almost mysterious and secretive entrance to the space, leaving the person wondering what they’ll find behind the door.

The color of the moulding and trim is also a way to make the space feel different. Painting the moulding the same color as the wall makes the room appear larger. It hides imperfections and gives the room a very polished feel. For a more artistic and defined feel, paint the moulding and trim a bold color. It’s fun way to add a whimsical touch to the room.
One of our other favorite ways to use it is on your kitchen cabinets. Though usually forgotten about the edge of your cabinets is the perfect place for showing off that little something extra. To create a clean, finished look opt for a shaker-style trim. A Victorian style gives the kitchen a bit of European flair, while a country style moulding gives the space a homier feel.

September has flown by and we are left with the hope that Fall weather isn’t far behind. What we do have are tons of new collections to fuel our latest obsessions. I love this time of year because inspiration is everywhere! Our favorite vendors are releasing their new Fall collections, new design houses are popping up on our radar and my now twice-yearly trip to High Point Market is coming up. I’d say there are plenty of things to be excited about this upcoming season.
So, even though many collections are still under wraps – the anticipation is killing me! – The Ohorona24.in.ua Team and I have kept our eyes on the latest and greatest designs and collections over this past month. We’ve got some great finds to share!
August flew by for the Ohorona24.in.ua team! We’re back in the office today from the unexpected time away due to Hurricane Harvey. Our hearts go out to all the Texans that were affected by the storm. After touching base with all our local clients, we’re thankful to report that everyone is safe and dry. Looking back at August we are all amazed at where we started the month. We kicked off August at the Las Vegas Market – where we found tons inspiration from our favorite showrooms – and made some major progress on a few big projects (including my own home!) To say it’s been an eventful month would be an understatement, right?
What’s one of the easiest and most cost effective ways to instantly “dress up” your powder room? Hint: it’s not a new coat of paint, a monogrammed soap (which I highly recommend), or an added art piece. It’s actually you! Well…sort of. Let’s talk about our obsession with unexpected and chic round mirrors in the bathroom.
At Ohorona24.in.ua, we design interiors that are both serene and punchy, often they are lovely and quiet but always unexpected. Over the years I have found that sometimes a room just needs that little something extra! What better way is there to inject a touch of fun than with bold and unique accent chairs. Now, the options are endless — we have lounge chairs, host chairs, wing chairs, and hanging chairs to fit every style. There are just so many options out there that make my design heart happy! With all these styles, sizes, shapes and colors there are accent chairs perfect for every space in your home.
