What’s IN for 2010

It’s a new year which means that it’s time for personal resolutions…AND new design trends. All the BIG furniture and home accessories markets are being held this month (and in February). This is where all the designers and retail store owners go to see what is up and coming. (I’m not sure exactly who decides what we will be doing for our 2010 decor but I’m told that it’s planned well in advance and usually has some type of “global” influence or theme.)

So according to these unknown experts-here’s what’s in for 2010…

Purple in all hues-like lavender and violet

(and turquoise, bright greens, blues,….)

Pillows with “bling” like stitching, beads and fringe

Florals with burnt orange, bright yellows and golds, deeps reds and burgundy

Greenery (Plants) that look natural from the garden

Understated “chic”

Mixing the old with the new… upholstered fabrics like linen with rustic or old (or old looking) case pieces

2010 Decor Trend Mis Matched Furniture

“RE” Furniture and accessories: re-purposed, reclaimed, recycled

Small artwork: canveses and framed prints especially original artwork

I’m beginning to think that the  “IN”spiration for 2010 is one that goes way back…

Everything Old Is New Again!

Happy Decorating!
