We loved Camp’s subtle plaid rug, and we’re seeing tartan-inspired versions popping up everywhere, like in this cozy living room by Anthony Baratta.
It’s a look many designers agree on: “A rich and interesting mix of patterns on furniture, textiles and wallpaper is huge,” says Molly Torres Portnof of Date Interiors. Next Waver Travis London agrees. He cites “maximalist patterns and prints”, such as foam design done in a delightfully flowery bedroom here, as a look to last.
In Rupp’s room as well as Chush & Co. In founder Jenna Chused’s living room at the show home, rich, understated interpretations of traditional jewelry tones reign supreme. Think: burgundy, evergreen, ocher instead of ruby red, emerald and lemon. It’s the perfect cozy atmosphere for fall and beyond.
In this serene but brooding landing space, Blaire designs also pulled in a rich hue, creating a lush background with dark ochre.
Forget the boring ceiling lights or chandeliers of the past: today’s design is all about light fixtures that act like art. In this year Brooklyn Heights Designer Showhouse, Laurie Blumenfeld made a statement with a custom light fixture by Avram Rusu against a mural by Wallpaper Projects in what would otherwise have been a neglected hallway.
This trend, seen here on the walls of Jean Liu’s entryway, was so prominent at this year’s Kips Bay Dallas showhouse that we dedicated a full report to this one. Next Wave designer Linda Hayslett agrees, saying “fluted, fluted pieces in neutral spaces” are huge right now.
While last year may have been the green year, our love of indoor greenery grows stronger this fall, like at the Kips Bay show home in Dallas, where Alessandra Branca covered the towering walls in a leafy green print and incorporated lots of actual greens too. “Forest-inspired decor is everywhere,” confirms Anna Power of Tea and Table NY.
Camp Meagan took a similar approach in this solarium atop a Brooklyn brownstone, covering one wall in green drapery and incorporating fresh plants and botanical prints. His rug speaks of another current trend…
Another trend noted by Linda Hayslett? “Marble furniture,” she says. In this landing zone by Christina Kim Interior Designa rich purple marble side table complements the (rich and moody!) color scheme.
If you thought the popularity of this comfortable material was on the wane, think again: it’s all about “curly textures and warm tones,” says the designer. K.D. Reidwho integrated the two into this living space.
Often overlooked when it comes to interior colors, brown is on the rise, as this bedroom proves. Jeremy D. Clark, which uses a variety of patterns in the rich tone to create an elegant layered space. Look closely and you’ll also see another of our favorite trends reflected (pun intended) in Clark’s mirror: seashell decor!
The bolster has its time! The cylindrical cushion adds an extra dimension to this cozy and serene monochromatic bedroom in Dorion workshop.
Meanwhile, at the opposite end of the stylistic spectrum, a graphic fringed bolster is the perfect accent for this nursery by JDK interiors, where a colorful fresco animates the walls.
Blaire Designs also sought to deceive the eye in this lobby space, covering the walls in what looks like a distressed tile pattern, but is actually a From Gournay Wall cover.
