Décor trends for spring and summer

From fashion to design, color, and more, it seems like trends come in and out of style before we get a chance to enjoy them. And while fads may be fleeting, they are a marker for great style, often living out—to some degree—longer than their time in the spotlight.


We are seeing this pop up more and more in great upholstered pieces and from our favorite fabric showrooms. This great fabric adds a dramatic texture and turns a drab piece into something a little more exciting. Also, it is so cozy!


A layered landscape in the scale and height of our furnishings is in in 2019. We look for a standard 18” seat height in key seating pieces and try to provide accompanying accent tables and lighting that are scaled appropriately. Lamps that are tall enough to cast light over a shoulder and taller cocktail tables add to a heightened and more refined environment.


Colors we see in for 2020 as well are blush, dusty pink, and bronze. Warm colors and feminine tones for on the walls and dashes of soft pinks to break up expanses of taupe or neutrals will instantly update a tired room.


The traditional beauty of floral patterns, either abstracted or straight up chintz, will be the pattern to use.


Simple, monochromatic kitchens have had a good long run, so we will be gravitating toward making a little more impact in their kitchens, whether that’s with bolder color choices or graphic tiles. Either way, I predict we will be seeing more pop and punch in kitchens!
