Trends come and go, but some have more staying power than others. As a companion to our predictions about the new trends that will define home decor in 2015, we've compiled this list of seven trends from 2014 that are still going strong.

1. Lots and lots of plants.
Turns out my mother, who maintains a little jungle in the corner of the living room, has been right on trend all along. Indoor plants of every stripe were big for 2014, and will be for 2015, too.

2. Warm metallics, especially copper.
A few years ago, silver was everywhere: now the inevitable flip-flop has occurred, and warm metals like gold, rose gold, and bronze are riding a wave of popularity. Copper is especially big — and lends itself especially well to DIY projects.

3. Textile art.
Part of a fascination with texture and handicrafts in general, textile art was huge in 2014, and its popularity shows no signs of flagging.

4. Kilim and boucherouite rugs.
These colorful rugs (kilims hail from Turkey, and boucherouite rugs come from Morocco) can be seen adding an extra dose of color to modern interiors everywhere.

5. Modern luxe.
Modern shapes rendered in luxurious materials like gold and marble: one of our favorite trends.

6. Pastels.
Soft colors make a nice counterpart to daring, modern shapes.

7. Geometry.
Squares, rectangles, hexagons, and especially triangles, rendered in pastels or bold colors, are still going strong in 2015.
