I have been watching the home décor trends and would love to share what I have learned. Americans are looking for their homes to be restful and soothing, yet at the same time stylish. More and more people are interested in creating a refuge that is peaceful, inviting, and easy to maintain. They want to relax and unwind at the end of the day. Comfort and functionality are equally important. It does not matter if it is a new home or a remodeled home, we are hearing these same comments.
Colors are across the spectrum this year with a forecast of colors such as green to blue shades along with neutrals. Sherwin Williams has a new color of the year that exudes warmth; Redend Point SW9081. Benjamin Moore’s color of the year is a vivacious shade of coral tinged with pink, Raspberry Blush: 2008-30. These enliven the senses with an electric optimism. Accents are important to use with any style décor. Gilded gold light fixtures and warm golds for plumbing fixtures are number one on the list of finishes. Other finishes, depending on the style of home chosen, are iron, black mixed with gold, and antique silver. Customers want style that is casual elegance, glamorous, and classic. We see a huge trend with traditional coming back, clean lines with beautiful symmetry. Some clients are asking for traditional like they grew up with, therefore, antiques have become quite popular again. Antique prints, local artists’ oil paintings, bench-made furniture of all tones of wood, and hand-painted pieces are some of our favorites.
We are receiving requests for wallpaper and wild patterns, which we love. I never thought I would see the comeback of wallpaper, but grass cloth and bold patterns are among the most popular. The prediction by the experts is that murals, whether wallpaper or hand-painted, are making a strong comeback. I saw some mural scenes at the Atlanta market of modern and historical French reproductions. Call us for an appointment to schedule your next remodel, new home, or update. We look forward to helping you.
