Old is Made New
The phrase what goes around comes around is so true in much of the design world. The furniture and designs of yesterday are still, as Brynn Olson says it,”En-Vogue!” Although you will see a more modern twist in fabrications and nods to old world fashions in lighting and furniture design, you will love the on going trends of untouched antique and vintage pieces in the home.
Green is In
For those of you that love blue and have enjoyed its longevity over the past couple of years…step aside, because Green is in! Whether it was the strong emergence of botanical and leafy green accessories or the strong come back of chinoiserie, the deep color green will have a greater statement in the home whether in accessories or furnishings. Some are saying green is the new black. It should be interesting what emerges.
Chrystaline Geometric Designs
Whether its a new Mid-century modern spin or just a need for more “bling” in the home, chrystal, quartz, and other shiny textures are very in. There unique shapes and contemporary designs are cool and sparkle in rooms. Many designers are creating functional works of art which will receive attention in one way or another.
More Bold Color
No more neutral rooms. Color is bigger and bolder! You’ll see more saturated palettes of jade, orange, citrine and teal. Not just in paintings, wall paper and soft goods but pops of color on large sofa sets and accent tables and chairs. Bright fabrics in larger prints as well. You can’t be afraid to highlight your space with a showpiece of hues.
Texture trends just keep on going. Rough, brushed, woven and shag; you name it and it’s on the style spotters list. The real test of true design is the character of the piece. We need to think back to organic and rustic consistencies on surfaces as well as industrial and metallic structures. All of this reads special and unique in the design world which then makes your home even more special.
