Mixing fun patterns with classics is a staple of Kate’s style. I think that fun tropical print looks so cute with a polka dot detail!

Wouldn’t that palette make a sweet nursery or some sassy accent pillows?

Design Trends Now

Trends in design are unique and creative for 2014! They mingle new and old, modern, and classic, all in the same room. Layering textures and patterns while using a neutral background in wall color or large upholstery pieces sets the backdrop for adding pops of color in accessories, lamps, pillows and rugs.

The influence of metals, especially brass is currently trending. Simple furnishings and the mixing of antique pieces with some modern accents (think Lucite tables or metal and glass) is very much in style.

The use of natural elements like cork, driftwood, reclaimed wood, leather, and metal is the ongoing trend in decorating.

Wallpaper is making a comeback, but with more creative uses, like wallpapering behind shelves or in small niches and built-ins. Grass cloth makes a great background in small, as well as large areas. Smooth metallic and tone-on-tone geometric grass cloth brings a touch of the high end look to any room.

New accent colors include yellow, found in hues ranging from citron to brassy gold; as seen on accent pillows or lamps.  Contrast your yellows with turquoise, navy blue, or gray tones. The aqua and turquoise palette are still strong and brings a calming effect to the room.

There are many fabric trends, starting with geometrics. Although widely used, we like a softer side in a smaller scale and in much smaller doses. Florals have returned and are mixed in with geometrics and textures.

Sheers are also new this year, achieving a modern look with metallic sheers. A soft and relaxed look by using sheer linen or cotton voile will bring an ethereal look to the room. The men’s influence in fabrics is also a nice welcome. Tartans and plaids, menswear, and leather will create a relaxed and comfortable setting. Ikats are still current, but as accents, and used to dominate the room.

Overall, there are many new trends going on, and many that are being revived. With this new whirlwind of choices, you have to make sure that what you choose to beautify your home makes you happy! Your design should be your own personal choice and reflect you, no matter what trend is going on. Embrace your inner designer and have fun.

Visit the shop today or call for an appointment. It is always helpful to bring pictures of your windows, furnishings to be upholstered or area rugs  as a basis for beginning your design project. Simple measurements of windows or furnishings can be helpful as well.

If you’re not quite ready for that appointment, come by the shop at 1410 Market St. and look for your inspiration in colors, textures and styles. Our selection of in-stock decorator fabrics in the largest in the area, and our designer sample room offers the designer in you a wide array of choices.

The Creation of a Collection

Trend and Jaclyn Smith are introducing a new crewel embroidery on a matte ground cotton, inspired by a small pillowcase found at a document dealer in New York. Jaclyn’s love of crewel aligns perfectly with the ethnic yet traditional theme that flows throughout this new collection.
