New York University

Imagine studying in town that is considered the heartbeat of the country. New York University is in the center of it all, from business and finance to fashion and design. Established in 1830, the Secretary of Treasury at the time, Albert Gallatin, built the vision of NYU, and set out to ensure this prominent city would have a “system of rational and practical education open to all.” Their campus sits on 230 acres of land in the heart of New York City. In an urban mecca where green space is treasured, this beautiful sprawling campus is a gold mine. In total, they serve close to 60,000 students.

16 Top Interior Design Trends to Know in 2018 (And What’s on Its Way out)

“Beige interiors are banished, making way for color and pattern, and the forgotten ceiling is now a decorating playground ready to be wallpapered, lacquered, gilded, or plastered with abandon.”
—Martyn Lawrence Bullard

“I predict that classic, traditional design elements will be back in a big way in 2018! They’ve certainly never gone away entirely, but over the past few years, everyone has gone mad for modern. Given the uncertainty of our current political and social climate, it makes sense that people would gravitate to classic, sure-fire favorites to make their homes a true respite from the rest of the world. Get ready for antiques, traditional brown furniture, and printed fabrics such as floral chintzes to make their mark in the new year.”
—Paloma Contreras

“So many cotton velvets are now available, with greater durability and in more colors than ever before. This dates back to the yellow velvet sofa seen

TOP 10 Best Interior Design & Architecture Websites

For interior designers and architects, it is crucial to have a website worthy of their talent and skill. A mediocre website creates the impression of service of a similar kind – and this is not what a designer’s business needs.

In our previous publications, we talked about benefits of having genuine, award-winning websites for interior designers, and the criteria of such sites. Today, let me list my personal top chart of interior design and architecture studios’ digital domains. Perfect examples of how your website should look – right ahead.

The Top 10 Tired Interior Design Trends to Ditch in 2018

Figuring out what makes for good design is an admittedly subjective exercise: Ask a dozen experts their thoughts on, say, why faux Mid-Century Modern is still popular in American interior design long after “Mad Men” has left us, and you’ll likely get a dozen different opinions.

Nevertheless, some home design trends manage to rise to mass acceptance. Thanks to unstoppable forces like HGTV and Pinterest—which might be single-handedly responsible for the misguided installation of thousands of sliding barn doors over the past few years—these trends tend to take on a life of their own.

And sometimes they just won’t die, even when they absolutely should.

Which are the worst offenders that need to go in 2018? We’ve chatted with experts from coast to coast to get their consensus on the top interior design trends we won’t miss in the new year.
