The interior design market has been lulled into a blissful state, with a sea of serene whites, creams and grays, for years now. The more subtle scenes were often a symbolic respite from our busier, over-stimulated lives. These textural, monochromatic design schemes allowed us to breathe again and gave us room to rediscover the joy of pure color. Like an easy arrangement of simple flowers, happy hues are finding their way back into our homes. Trend-setters at the upcoming High Point Market, the mecca for what’s new in interiors, give us a sneak peek…
Introducing color into softer surroundings is easy with a beautiful piece like the Signature Wing Chair by Caracole. A part of the Live, Love, Laugh Collection, this two-toned beauty is easy on the eyes and practical too- it is upholstered in Sunbrella outdoor fabric! Bold yellow is an upbeat shot of energy for your breakfast room, home office or family room.
Accessories are often considered jewelry for the home. A soothing setting can remain so, especially with the addition of a celestial color like lavender. The McCauley Table Lamp by Jamie Morgan for Kenroy Home softly illuminates your space while injecting a royal touch of glamor. Color, like this, is even more alluring, when surrounded by supporting neutrals.
For those interested in a more energetic pop, David Francis Furniture offers the sustainable Stockholm Chair (shown in the Monarch colorway). In a color that demands attention in a gracious way, this piece can stand alone as an accent, but imagine a grouping around a casual dining table- a chic way to take center stage!
A jolt of electric blue can take a room from ho-hum to halleluja! HGTV Home is known for incorporating the wow-factor and their Aniline Dyed Turquoise Credenza showcases the natural grain of maple in a whole new way. A grounding outline of dark stain keeps what could be an overwhelming color, in check. Taking a chance on a statement piece will give your space new life and a center-point to build on.
New to the scene: CR Laine introduces The Guilded Stag by Landon Shockey. The exciting, new collection can be completely customized and is made in the USA. Classic motifs are re-imagined in bold ways. The Shaftesbury Cart is based on the traditional Chinoiserie style, but boasts a convenient removable tray and packs a punch in a rich marigold.
What about you? Are you ready to inject some color into your life?
