Fall Trends

Labor Day weekend has arrived! Here in Southwest Florida we don’t exactly smell Fall in the air. Nothing is crisp or cool in anyway but we know Fall is coming by the exciting trends flying around the internet and popping up in our catalogs! Here are some things we see trending.

Brass is back. Like most trends this works great in accessories, even the unexpected like a pillow! Using brass pieces in several areas around your home can help tie this look together.

Zuma pillow

Bold colors are sticking around. Pantone named Emerald the color of 2013 and boy are we seeing it everywhere! Paired with beige neutrals this is a trend that continues to hold its own. Add color to your home in small doses. With so much to choose from in lighting fixtures, pillows, artwork, and accessories, there are plenty of ways to make this trend work for you.

Serena Wall Sconce

Our final notable Fall trend is embellished walls. Grasscloth, textured wallpapers, big patterns, and whimsy repeats are getting lots of attention. Used properly this trend will stand the test of time and give your plain walls a nice little interest boost.

Beaded Butterflies in Navy

These Fall trends are our way to metaphorically feel the changing of the seasons. Give us a call so we can help incorporate these decorating ideas into your own home!

Trendspotter: Grasscloth

Grasscloth is popping up everywhere! We have used it in quite a few jobs of late and want to share some of the ways we have incorporated it into an overall design.

Small Spaces: Bathrooms and kitchens are transformed with this product. Keeping in mind this is a natural product we have opted to use a premium vinyl product in these moisture rich areas to reduce the risk of damage, peeling of seams and for easy cleaning!

Accent wall: Used behind an entertainment unit or covering a wall displaying artwork, grasscloth can really help bring an area into focus.

Living space: Papering an entire room with grasscloth can give a very rich look and feel (see photo above) without taking away from other elements.

Something to Keep in Mind: The very nature of grasscloth is, well, it’s natural. Its beauty is in its imperfection – just like leather or stone. Made by creation, it was given unique personality.This is not a material that can be matched up and aligned perfectly.  If that is the look you are going for, might we interest you in a stripe wallpaper (which can also be a good look)? Grasscloth is meant to show a seam of sorts but when you stand back you can see how it really transforms a space and provides your home with that one-of -a-kind look.

We would love to talk with you more about how to incorporate this interior design element trend into your home. Give us call for our free in-home consult – there is so much to choose from, we can certainly make your walls pop, too!!
