Flowers, prints, patterns and texture are still everywhere. While some designers, believe that the new turn toward neutrals is a sort of rebellion against all the busyness of these patterns, others are still utilizing them and show no signs of slowing down. Florals and textures on furniture, fabrics and wallcoverings are still very popular. In addition to the florals, the luxe market is seeing a lot of chintz, and Chinoiserie which seems never to have really faded from interest.
The terms— modern and contemporary — have been intermingled in the design world, resulting in a bit of confusion. A kind of confusion that leads us to ask: Is contemporary architecture/design the same as modern architecture/design? The answer is no, and a little bit of yes. To be very literal, contemporary means now, while modern refers to technological and engineering developments that date back to the turn of the 20th Century.
Something all designers seem to agree on, as does Boodro, is that metals are big at the moment and that brass is “the metal of the moment.” We are seeing brass everywhere from small fixtures, to lighting to furnishings. Brass, and all hand finished metals bring a luxurious, clean, rich and sturdy look to your space.
When we think of luxury we think of not only rich colors, rich fabrics with wonderful textures such as deep velvets, but we think of fur. Fur is everywhere, and offers the quintessential pop of luxe, comfort and warmth. While some of these fur accessories are out of most price ranges, there are “copycat” products that are actually well made and visually appealing. Most of what is seen on the luxury end of home decor becomes available rather quickly to the general masses.
