Every year I post about what I see as trending designs.
I am still seeing a lot of leather and solid colors in upholstery. It is usually seen in a neutral color. But I feel that more color will be used…on walls, chairs, artwork. More color and texture will be added to accessories like rugs and pillows.
I am also seeing a trend toward more elegant fabrics in pillows. Velvets with trimming, brocades, metallics. Draperies in florals and prints to add more depth to a room.
It seems like a simple, more modern feel is really popular but I am predicting that traditional furnishings are going to be coming on strong in the near future, just like I predicted that gold and brass would be back.
So, if you see a beautiful antique that tugs at your heart…
pick it up and take it home. You will not regret it…donnajean
