Miami Beach Home Show Trends 2007
Traditional and transitional decor were a rarity at the Miami Beach Home Show. Contemporary design inspiration was found at many of the vendors – one particularly strong theme was the modern re-interpretation of traditional seaside design. Modern clean colors such as turquoise, aqua, coral, bright yellow, light green and fuschia pinks were the standouts – coral, shell, the shiny inside of abalone and other sea treasures were front and center. The sea decor theme was often teamed up with the “rough” wood texture of rattan, teak and bamboo. Leather accents and glass accessories completed the modern seaside decor theme.
Photographing the home decor displays was a big no-no (rules are a pain at times) but I did manage to get a few photos of the products I really liked and wanted to share with you. Images from left to right: Coconut Shell throw pillow, aqua outdoor tabletop trays (with shell and coral motif) and stemware, Leather and metal stacking ottomans (with storage – they are a dark warm brown similar to the color tone of the coconut shell pillow but they photographed dark almost black), Seashell Stationary and Beaded Coral silk pillows.
