HGTVNYNow2015-MailegNYNow2015-Skulls1All things Viking and Scandinavia are hot in 2015, with Detroit and Cuba on deck for 2016, that according to interior design maven Genevieve Gorder, speaking at a HGTV event yesterday.

Which may explain the popularity of Maileg dolls (middle photo) from Demark. Or perhaps it was Maileg that helped to fuel the Scandinavia trend. They’ve been around for years, but seem to always remain new with endless variations.

Animal skulls (even inflatable) are hot at this year’s NY NOW. Interestingly, the people selling them, who we spoke with (including business owners), never heard of Georgia O’Keeffe.
