Design Trends 2009 – Home Décor Trends Sneak Peek
Design trends for 2009 are diverse, interesting and eclectic. There is a design style trend for everyone – Parisian Apartment, Safari Chic, Globally Inspired and so many more. We can’t wait to share them all with you. Today we offer a sneak peek at four of the many design trends that will be covered in-depth in upcoming articles.
Global Mergers: The symbols, colors and cultural styles of many individual countries collide, mix and match to create an eclectic fusion of style so unique that a new world of interior design style has emerged – one without style borders (or seemingly design rules) where Safari prints, Asian patterns and Moroccan colors grace a pillow cover. The Jaipur sofa from Versace Home (versacehomecollection.com) captures the essence of multi-cultural style.
Safari Chic: Animal prints seem to come in and out of fashion with incredible frequency. However, 2009 appears to be the year in which they will leave a strong mark in the home fashions industry. Safari Chic is an understated elegant trend that combines animal prints with subtle organic inspired colors and textiles to create a modern, fresh style. Jute and detailed wood beading make the handmade Kenya Giraffe Pillow by Marlo Lorenz (marlolorenz.com) the epitome of Safari Chic.
Classics With A Twist: Traditional furniture forms and styles are re-interpreted in a fun, colorful and bold manner. Sure, amazing and joyful patterns like the one shown in the Antwerp Chair, Bloom from Anthropologie (anthropologie.com) aren’t new and have graced “classic” furniture in previous years. It’s true; talented furniture designers have made Classics With A Twist a niche favorite for several years, but 2009 will be the year it burst out of niche markets and debuts into the “mainstream”- and we’re delighted!
Hollywood Regency – Hollywood Regency style first arrived on the interior design scene in the 30s thanks to the artistic brilliance of Billy Haines and lived well into the 60s morphed and re-interpreted by various designers along the way. The style has enjoyed a revival over the last few years re-interpreted in a fresh and colorful fashion by designers like Kelly Wearstler. This style is: glamorous, classy and elegant; composed of an eclectic mix of styles like Neo-Classic, Asian, Baroque and Art Deco; sumptuous and luxury fabrics, shimmering finishes, mirrored furniture, chinoiserie, bamboo and lacquered furniture; bold color; clean lines and beautiful symmetry. True Hollywood Regency style adheres to a luxurious interpretation of minimalist design. The Platt Collections (theplattcollections.com – dealer locations & info) bedding and bed shown above.
