What are you doing to get ready for the Holidays?

Our time is ticking away before that company arrives!  Yikes, is your home ready?  Did you implement any of the decor ideas from the last post?  If not, be sure to review it here.  But really, we are a month away until Thanksgiving.  At that point, the end of the year just zooms by...am I right?

Hopefully you were able to incorporate a few of the ideas from the last post, but if they did not float your boat, check out the remaining decor trends that will be visible the rest of 2017 and into the winter of 2018.  

Now, I just went to High Point Market, the Mecca of furnishings and decor,  this October and saw first hand the trends for fall and winter.  It was beautiful, creative and so exciting.  Moving through showroom after showroom really gets the decorating juices flowing.  Forecasted trends for the next season are rich, lush and bold decor.  It all begins with Velvet!

Trends:

Velvet was everywhere!  You can use this textile with pillows, furniture, and throws.  It is a perfect way to add warm, sophistication to your space.  Who doesn’t love to caress a velvet pillow! Check out these pillows below.

Woven Textures, especially natural wovens have been on the up and up for the past few years.  Now, expect to see even more!  While in High Point, woven textures were used in pendant lighting, outdoor like furniture was brought indoors, as well as casegoods displaying woven texture to create a warm, functional piece.  This is a perfect substitute if you are not into the reclaimed wood addiction that is seen everywhere.

Blush!  Decor inspired by Benjamin Moore's "Tissue Pink" paint was all over High Point Market this year both in the spring and the fall. Decor and home accents in a range of shades creating a soft, luxurious feel in any space.  This fall, furniture was covered in this glorious color and I just could not get enough of it!

Heads up! You've heard of accent walls, but how about an accent ceiling? Statement ceilings are bold and beautiful!  Whether textured wallpaper, tin or embossed foam ceiling tile, shiplap, wooden beams, or a bold paint color, homeowners are adding texture to the often-overlooked "fifth wall".

Bone inlay pieces are exquisite and you cannot deny the craftsmanship that was used to create each piece.  Furniture featuring fine, hand-cut, inlaid bone is the statement piece your home needs this fall. Many showrooms in High Point showcased furniture with inlaid bone and Boy, did everyone gravitate toward it!  Stunning in every way!

Having company over can be overwhelming!  Why?  Because we are our worst critic.  Add a few decor pieces to your space before you host your holiday event and it will boost your mood. You will feel proud of your space for choosing something that reflects the times.  Remember, trends in interiors will be around for 5-10 years.  Your choices will not be futile!
