Sleep derivation world-wide is at an all-time high. As technology has allowed us to be more connected than ever. Many companies have demanded longer working hours, and expect to receive a response from employees around the clock. Adding to this crisis are the many executives who publicly claim their success is due to their early working hours. They brag about their short sleeping schedules and send an underlying message that sleep is for the weak.
Innovative companies are combating this sleep deprivation, and round-the-clock schedules by allowing their employees to take naps on-site. Many are also putting a cap on working hours. Much like NASA in the 1990s, these employers are noticing that their employees are much more productive after taking short naps.
Renovations take time and effort, but they can also be very exciting. Before you start knocking down any walls, look here for inspiration that you can follow in your next bathroom renovation. We’ve studied the upcoming trends for 2018, and are now ready to share it with you.
Bathrooms aren’t just for nature’s business anymore, they are now spaces where you can relax and take the time to care for yourself. This shift in perspective is seen in most elements of new year’s bathroom designs.
As this wellness trend continues to evolve, more and more people are placing natural elements like wood and plants in their bathrooms. Stone bathtubs and tiles also are very popular in new bathroom renovations.
As more time is spent in the bathroom, homeowners are increasingly looking to create larger spaces. This has left many knocking down walls and even exposing their bathrooms right into outdoor space. For those not ready to commit to such a drastic change, adding mirrors, larger windows or large-scale tile can help create the impression of a wider space.
Whereas past years focused on high-tech showers, this year the focal point of the bathroom is a freestanding tub. The trend includes tubs of all shapes and sizes, mainly carved from a natural stone.
For 2018, granite is out, quartz is in. Boring white or black is out, and colorful ceramic tiles are in. If it’s been many years and you are still rocking some outdated styles, maybe it is time to seriously consider a bathroom renovation project.
Being on the red carpet with a towel in your hair and only a bathrobe on sounds like it is a nightmare. But you don’t need to be woken up, this is no dream.

And not just to a casual store or local diner, they are wearing them on the red carpet and on the cover of Vogue. Leave it to Rihanna to make a trend official. She not only wore a bath towel in her hair on the cover of Vogue Paris, she actually made it look good. Enviously good.
While at first blush, this trend seems like an Ashton Kutcher-style prank, it is seriously catching on. Many trace its origins to Mariah Carey or Burberry’s 2016 runway show. Wherever it started, it’s clear bath-leisure is now a thing.
Celebrities like Gigi Hadid and Kim Kardashian West have also been donning bath-leisure looks. Pajamas, kimonos, slippers, and more are also incorporated into this trend and has been worn by many celebrities throughout the year.
The only question is are you bold enough to go beyond your mailbox in a bathrobe and hair towel? There is something appealing about being able to rock it in attire normally reserved for the bathroom. Plus, you know you will be extra cozy doing so.
When you come home, you want your space to be relaxing, welcoming, and a reflection of your personal tastes. Your linens should add to this feeling, and be customized with your personal touch. Adding a monogram is a great way to personalize linens while also upping the sophistication of your home.
There are many different types of monograms as well, so select the ones that are best suited to you. Consider placing this monogram on your bed sheets, cover, or pillow shams. These fancy initials are sure to impress your guests, and possibly even your bedmate.
Less common items to monogram are your shower curtain or hand towels, but they are certainly growing in popularity. There’s something special about seeing your monogram on a plush towel on display in your bathroom. It really is one of the easiest ways to personalize a space.
Another much more traditional way to personalize your home is to dig up an old, family heirloom like a quilt. Usually, these types of treasures are passed down generations, so be such to ask around to aunts, uncles, and other extended family members to see if your quilt exists.
If you are lucky enough to have such an item, make sure you protect it and put it on display to add a very personal touch when family comes over. Another easy way to personalize is to screen-print photos onto a fabric surface like a throw pillow. There are even companies that will allow you to completely customize your bed sheets and duvet cover by screen-printing on them.
Photographs have a way of taking you back to a specific moment, a place, a feeling, or memory in time, and are another way to personalize your linens and bedding.

It used to be considered a fashion faux pas to wear your socks with sandals. It was a look reserved for embarrassing fathers or those who didn’t care about being stylish. Lately, though, celebrities seem to have waved their magic wands and deemed this now a fashionable look.
Celebrities like Rihanna have been spotted all over town wearing their socks with heels and sandals. Socks now come in brand new options that were never available before. You can buy socks with sequins, ribbons, lace, bows, and more. Designers are even sending models down the runways wearing socks, and many merchants report their sales of socks doubling from last year’s sales.
On the red carpet at Cannes, Kylie Jenner wore a pair of gold Jimmy Choo heels with semi-sheer anklet socks. Even Beyoncé has been spotted wearing embellished socks this season, as well as other celebrities like Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, Selena Gomez, and Suki Waterhouse.
The trend most likely started with the sock boot that was made popular from designer Stuart Weitzman and Kanye West’s footwear and clothing line, Yeezy. Rihanna took this trend up a notch recently when she posted a picture of herself wearing crystal-encrusted Gucci socks worth quite a pretty penny. Many fans loved the look.
If you can’t wait to rock this season’s hot accessory, consider a more affordable, cotton sock option that can be paired with metallic sandals, or even embellished by hand. Create your own elegant socks by adding lace, ribbon, or sequins to a pair of cotton socks. This will leave you looking stylish while also feeling comfortable.
When its cold outside, there is nothing you want more than to wrap yourself in something cozy to keep you warm. This winter, consider purchasing a fluffy bathrobe to keep you comfortable indoors. There are many different styles of bathrobes ranging from luxurious and trendy to more traditional, classic versions.
A bathrobe is more than a piece of apparel, it is an experience. One that takes you down memory lane to a luxurious hotel that you’ve stayed in and leaves you with the coziness of a big hug. Get the full experience by lounging around the house in true hygge spirit. Catch a great movie and a sip of some honey and lemon tea, or a cup of freshly-made hot cocoa.
Robes have also played a major role in our history. In China, they were mainly worn by the wealthy, made of silk, and a symbol of good fortune. In Japan, their sleeves flowed in a kimono-style that was inspired by garb typically left for the boudoir.
Most bathrobes today are made from cotton, and available in a variety of options like terry cloth, microfiber, or waffle weave. Consider if you prefer a soft fabric on your skin, or one with faster wicking properties. Also, think about the wearer, is the robe going to be used after the shower or for lounging around? Is it for a man or a woman?
Once you’ve determined your purchasing needs, select your fabric carefully. Also take staple length, fabric weight, and thread loops into consideration. These are all factors that contribute to a well-made bathrobe. You want your purchase to last, and not all robes are made equally, so be mindful of this while shopping.
These days, everyone seems to be obsessed with the hygge lifestyle. What began in Denmark as a cultural practice of being relaxed and comfortable at-home has quickly become one of this year’s biggest wellness trends. Celebrities throughout the United States and England have been tagging their social media posts with #hygge all year-long.
This Norwegian concept is meant for individuals to streamline their lives and focus on what really matters. The goal is that doing so will result in you living a more joyous life that leaves you feeling warmth and comfort. Much of this practice revolves around the home. To truly indulge in the hygge life, you need to make your space is more welcoming and cozy.
Wrapping yourself up in a warm blanket, a soft cotton bathrobe, and a thick pair of socks is definitely a staple of the hygge lifestyle. Prepare a comfortable spot within your home that is a space where you can indulge, read a good book, and just enjoy some quality time by yourself or with loved ones.
Hygge isn’t meant to be reclusive, but it is meant to filter out negativity and that means only allowing positivity and friends into this sacred space that you’ve created. Up the ante, by disconnecting from technology and common day distractions. Although, you can cozy up on the couch and watch your favorite film.
Bake cookies, drink chocolate milk, or have a cup of tea, and enjoy the peacefulness that exists within your home. Light some candles for an enhanced relaxing atmosphere, and take comfort in this newfound way of life.
