2012 is going to be an interesting year-especially in the Design Industry. We, at HOME ACCENTS, are delighted that many of the styles will be representative of who we are.
This year will be color infused, yet on the other hand, grey is the NEW Black and here in New England, we are all too familiar with many "grey-on-grey days" - so take advantage of using this color and keep some caution in mind, when doing so!
The Trends Are:
.GLOBAL - Take all those "cultural" delights you possess or want to obtain and mix them up. Don't be afraid to mix and match patterns!
.LUXE - (Oh one of my favorites!) - Luxe is just as it sounds. Stimuli of richness for the eyes, from colors, to textures - many representative of treasures found, acquired or inspired from the Orient!
Luxe is forever timeless!
.TRADITIONAL - The New Traditional is CLASSIC DECORATING with a breezy air. An element of must is some gold "somewhere". Used as matte, the statement will yield to causal-gloss leads to glam.
Seems like popularity in Antiques is on the rise - even with the young. The rage is, additionally, re-purposing - however; be leary how much you repurpose certain pieces, as such can alter the value of your piece. A tip to the wise, if your acquired or inherited antique is in pristine condition, leave it & funk it out with elements of accessories art work and the like for a modern day twist to traditional!
And Last-but NOT least is:
.MODERN - Neon shades, abstract patterns, embellished nail head silhouettes - even art nouveau chairs juxtaposed against a minimalist interior and executed in funky shades of leather or velvet speak the new Modern!
Our Team at HOME ACCENTS represents the Coastal Eclectic-yet there are elements of our personalities within the showroom reflective of each one of these trends
Best Wished for 2012!
