It's NYCxDesign Week here in NYC - a city-wide celebration of all things design. There are hundreds of events that give us the opportunity to see aspirational interior designs as well as the chance to do some serious Furn(iture) Scouting for our clients. To start, we kicked things off at Brooklyn Designs, a design fair focused on spotlighting Brooklyn-made home furnishings.Read More
Wednesday night we attended Hot or NOT: Trends That Will Rule 2015, part of the Apartment Therapy Maker Talks . Sitting on the (pretty impressive!) panel that was forecasting next year’s home trends was Genevieve Gorder of HGTV, Andrew Corrie of Canvas Home and Christiane Lemieux of DwellStudio.
One of our key learnings (other than that Chevron is OUT!) was that the concept of “Authenticity” will grow even stronger in the coming year. (No more faux finishes people!) Also, we will continue to see more and more of the simple, Nordic-inspired silhouettes we’ve seen popping up all over the place (or as Genevieve put it, “What’s Coming? The Eff-ing Vikings!”). Plus light and creamy pastel colors will overtake neutrals and while metallics will continue to rein, we’ll start to see them "mixing”. You don’t have to feel like you’re limited to using one metal in a room, you can mix and match the warms with the cools - like using copper, silver and gold at the same time to add some interest.
You know, keep it authentic.
