It is no secret that each year there are new trends in decorating. For the past few years neutrals, no fuss, no frills was the norm. Get ready because a change is on the way! We are heading towards brighter colors and getting away from all neutrals. Turquoise, blue, navy, teal, tangerine, pink, red, orange and emerald green are a few of the new colors ushering in the fresh, fun and not as serious look! Gray, smoke and charcoal will still be popular neutrals. You will also see a return to beauty and glamour in home design. The new finish is soft brass… not the shiny brass of the 1980s. Gold and silver leaf will adorn mirrors, drawer handles and lamps. Vintage, which as been a staple of the fashion industry for the past few years, will be more predominant in home décor. High performance fabrics with a luxurious feel and look, like velvets, will be part of this new luxury in home décor. Reclaimed wood will have a less “barn” look with a higher level of finish. Soft weathered finishes, iron, hand blown glass, marble and exotic materials like shell will make an interesting mixed media.
