THE DESIGN TRENDS I AM MOST excited TO SEE IN 2018
My VELVET CRUSH
Design now is about celebrating everyday luxuries and no fabric does that better than velvet. A classic, it never really goes out of style and for those of you who are obsessed with the cozy, luxurious textile, well this is your year to shine.
While pure cotton velvet can stain easily unless stain-guarded, new poly-blend velvets have a lush, luxe feel that are childproof but still as elegant.
I couldn't agree with Georgie Boy more!

Consumers have been experiencing stainless fatigue for some time now and are longing for more warmth in their homes. This is why we have seen such a huge revival of gold, brass and copper over the past few year years.
I've always felt that it's okay to mix and match your metals but you really need a good eye to make it all come together harmoniously. It's also a great way to add some character to your space. To keep things simple, my one bit of advice when mixing metals would be to just pick one dominant metal and blend other metals in to function as quieter accents.

This year we are expecting to see this trend on the edges of toss cushions, draping over lamps, weaving its way into upholstery, and even showing up in some other unusual places.
Love it or hate it, the fringe is on...
