At my recent visit to the Las Vegas World Market Center to attend the home furnishings winter market it was great to see some exciting new trends in interior design. It’s always fun to visit the market and see first hand what colors and styles are popping up and will be available in the stores in the near future.
One thing I saw a lot of was colorful, beautifully patterned and adorned throw pillows in every possible shape and style. Eye-catching throw pillows have been popular for awhile, but I was amazed at just how many I saw at the winter market. Throw pillows are a great way to take a neutral color scheme and add pops of color and interest. A room can go from blah to wow with just the addition of a few well placed throw pillows. A boring sofa, loveseat, or chair can be invigorated just with the addition of a throw pillow or two. Here’s a photo from one of the showrooms I visited that had some of the most beautiful pillows. Ethnic patterns are popular as well as bright shades of orange, reds, blues and greens.
Another trend I saw was lots of warmer metals. I saw warm metals at the summer market last July, but at this market there were even more – beautiful warm shades of gold, brass, bronze, and copper. The photo below is from a showroom that had stunning displays of beautiful accessory pieces in gorgeous metal finishes.
The photo below is from another one of my favorite finds at the market. This small line of lighting, accessories, and accent furniture is filled with warm golds and bronze tones. Their pieces have a very fresh, but warm and inviting look.
Coastal design is still alive and well. This design style continues in popularity. I saw coastal and/or tropical styles in furniture, lighting, artwork, and accessories. Coastal design is fresh and vibrant. In the photo below is a bedroom from one of my favorite showrooms. The white furniture works well with the bedding, lamps, artwork, and accessories.
Transitional styles continue to be very popular. Transitional designs tend to have clean lines with some traditional styling. One of my favorite finds was the showroom shown below. I love the styling of their furniture because it is so classic and beautiful and will work in so many settings.
In case you love Tuscan design and are afraid it’s no longer available, take a look at this beautiful dining room furniture in the photo below. The pieces are just gorgeous with exceptional detailing and a rich, warm finish. Although Tuscan design has been popular for quite awhile and is not being used as much as before, it’s still a viable option for those who love it. As I’ve said for years, you should decorate your home in the styles that speak to you and make you feel comfortable and happy.
That’s just a sampling of some of my favorite finds at the winter home furnishings market. Remember, your home is your sanctuary. Make it feel like the best place you want to be – a place that you love coming home to, that reflects your personality, your lifestyle, your passions, and your personal taste.
In my next post I’ll talk about the color trends that I saw at the winter market and what colors you can expect to be popular this spring.
Until next time,
