Odds and Ends Handmade 6. Faux Foliage Continuing on Part 2 of our post "10 Trends on Our Radar for 2016", (and if you're just joining us now you can see Part 1 here), we begin with faux foliage, a big trend we're seeing continue really strong this year. From knitted cacti and succulents from artists such as Andrea Daniel of Odds and Ends Handmade (above) to paper flowers by artists such as Tiffanie Turner, Kelsey Elam (Kelsbe), Kate Alarcon (Cobra Lily) and cute paper cacti art by Tara Galuska.

Pretty in Pink We don't usually hop onto Pantone's Colours of the Year, in fact we tend to shy away from those types of blog posts; but pink is definitely here to stay. Some loathe this colour, others over do it; but in it's right place it can become the perfect backdrop. We love it on buildings, and especially to take photo's of ice cream cones! A few great pinks to love below.

Coloured Marble + Terrazzo House and Home Magazine reported darker marble as a trend this year, and rumour has it, according to Real Living Magazine, we will love coloured marbles more than Carrara and Calacatta. We love our new marble tray we picked up for our new upcoming column "Ice Cream Bar". What's your favourite marble colour? More samples below. poppytalk Martha Sturdy Dual Pour White Marble Charcoal - Provide Home Terrazzo flooring at Bar Luce - Wes Anderson - Milan - Photo by Andrea @anddicted 10. Aussie Desserts + Other Savoury Treats If you've been following any foodie instagrammers out of Australia this past year, you'll know the desserts especially are super-inspiring. From towering epic cakes from the likes of Katherine Sabbath and Andy Bowdy to extreme milkshakes from Patissez, and our latest love, Cotton Candy or as they call it Fairy Floss from Fluffë! Also worthy of a mention, savoury desserts as mentioned in magazines like House and Home and House and Leisure like Bloody Mary Popsicles to beetroot and lemon cupcakes!
