Entering an industry exhibit for Interior Design is nothing short of an “Alice in Wonderland” experience.  Never before seen innovations, striking new trends, and designers that have taken at least a few cues from the Mad-Hatter himself!  Go ahead, fall through the rabbit hole and experience the wondrous marvels that we have fallen in love with at the French exhibit Maison & Objet.

Flower Power: Layers of Floral Prints

May-Logo

Keeping with last weeks post, and an homage to the 1960’s flower power motif, we bring you a popular design trend: Layering Bold Floral Patterns.  From wallpapers covered in lively, upbeat floral glory to upholstery in loud eccentric buds, these statement floras mix wonderfully with vivid-colored solid counterparts.  As we look ahead to Summer 2013, we’re captivated by these magnificent beauties..

A Nod To Mod

Contributing author: Amy Tran

Glamorous pearls, florals and feminine lines meet funky patterns and bold accents.  Inspired by fashion design and ranging from large floral prints to bold stripes and bright eccentric patterns mixed with pastel hues, this new wave of design aesthetic suggests its roots are from Sixties Mod.  In 2013, this is a fresh take on the sixties using lavenders, baby blues, mints, and peaches that are anchored by black or white.  This design style easily incorporates mid-century pieces with a feminine and youthful twist.
