Autumn Trends, Winter Insights
Mix, mix and mix some more! The trends for cooler weather this year are going to be an exposé in polychromatic diversity and an exploration in texture.
In a time of instant gratification and social media madness, we find ourselves constantly looking for the next best thing in order to stay relevant. This is no different in the interior design world. Designers must stay on top of their game in order to guarantee their clients that they are getting the best and the most cutting-edge design. They also have to make sure that they are not only trend-setting, but aware of the trends forthcoming.
To keep up with this ever-changing scenario, I like to be in touch with the fashion world. Fashion is such a fast-paced industry and today, more than ever, everything we see on the runways of fashion week, translates almost immediately to our home and event decor.
As interior designers and event planners, in the past few years, we all felt a very strong transition from the historically referenced style to an unstoppable mid-century modern décor.
In the next months I expect, and hope to see, thematic décor replaced with more layered, cultured, and eclectic combinations. Polished surfaces juxtaposed with rough materials and metallic textiles, warm metals combined with Mayan inspired fabrics will be certainly the big players in this coming Fall.
While colors are wonderful and we have seen so much of them in the past decade, I feel that a change is on the horizon. Clients are asking more and more for neutral pallets such as ivory, eggshell, bone and natural creams in order to create a clean and serene setting. All accompanied by comfortable seating.
Tailored pieces, mixtures of colors and a variety of textures can be used to create a more varied, inspiring and personalized space.
Pops of colors can easily be added by using the correct accessories and lighting.
It is all about comfort, tradition while valuing the environment.
