For most of the country, temperatures have been dropping since late August. For us Las Vegans it’s still in the 80’s. Nonetheless, Fall is just around the corner… this coming Wednesday to be exact. With the change in seasons comes a natural shift in design. Here at APJ we have an idea of which trends should make their way into your home and those that will fade away with summer! Wanna know how? I wish I could say it’s because we’re psychic, but we’re not (boo!). It might have something to do with our huge appetite for design (hello my name is Lisa, I am addicted to Pinterest & Instagram), or possibly it’s because we attended the always popular seminar “Ahead of the Curve” during Las Vegas Market last month…
This highly coveted powwow merged industry talents, producing top quality advice and expert opinions. Moderating this year was Kelly Edwards; tv star among HGTV, The Style Network and The Design Network. Brian Patrick Flynn, Jon Call and Amanda Nisbet formed the rest of this dream team. Scouring the halls and showrooms of LVMKT, the four designers compiled a list of furniture and décor trends forecasting this Fall.
* Artisnal Elements *
The common denominator here is raw materials; metal, wood, stone, resin. Finishes which are unfinished, unlacquered, imperfect.
* Tactile Quality *
This is all about the nitty gritty … hair on hide, hand stitching, rope detail.
* Dusty Colors *
A color palette with softer, more mature hues. Think dirty neutrals like mauve, icy blue, robin egg.
* Mixed Materials *
Juxtaposition; the effortless combination of traditional and modern, slick and rough, matte and shiny.
* Sophistication *
Less themey, more confident. Mix styles and curate, don’t match.
