Hot 10 Home Decor Trends 2009
The following ten design trends for 2009 are some of the most prominent, and are the ones driving design and decorating style for the upcoming year.
|1. UNIQUELY ME CHIC: Eclectic styling as seen in the newly revived interest in Hollywood Regency and mixing of periods and styles speaks to the need that each of us has to leave our own unique personality stamp on our home decor. (Hollywood Regency Style Sketchbook.)|
|2. LIVE RESPONSIBLY: Societal responsibility and Eco-awareness in decor and furniture purchases (saying it’s Green is not enough today – consumers demand proof that the process and the final product truly are Green, sustainable and meet with Fair Trade standards). The 2008 SAGE award winners Cisco Brothers (Harmony Ottoman), Hickory Chair (Tufted Victorian Pouf) and Valley Forge Fabrics(Celerie Collection) are companies leading the Green Design movement with their commitment to the environment.|
|3. LUXURIOUSLY GREEN: Add silk-like eco-bedding to your organic linens vocabulary, as sumputous, silken luxury bedding makes a strong debut in the eco-bedding category. Luxury organic linens like Anna Sova‘s Marigold eco-silk Collection and SDH Linens‘ silky Legna Collection have taken the concept of organic bedding to the next level. These natural silk-like linens are created from organic materials such as processed wood-pulp (in the case of SDH), and are given gorgeous color through the use of non-toxic dyes.|
|4. FASHIONISTA FINERY: A couture flair in decorative pillows, expect to see gorgeous pillows dressed in high fashion details. Silver-Gray fabric floral and beaded accent pillow (DB Source), Etro Pokram Cushion (This Is Auto), Natasha Peacock Pillow (Blissliving Home), and Swarovski crystal embellished pillow ( Bagnaresi Casa).|
|5. ARTISTIC LOVE: Desire and appreciation for artisan pieces and one-of-a kind decor and furniture-propelled by the rejection of impersonal, mass produced objects. Hand painted wall covering Neptune collection (Sondra Alexander), Black and Iris glass tubes (Tsunami Glassworks), and mixed media artwork from artist Panther Staton (321-604-0600).|
