How is 2018 treating you so far? I hope y’all have your hot tea at the ready. Ms. Mariah is making that a condition of this new year.
I loved this article on the top interior design trends of 2018 in Vogue. I have some hope of being on trend this year while being able to reach my No Spending goal!
Here are some of the highlights from the article:
“Marie Antoinette said the only thing that is new is what has been forgotten, and trends are tied to that thought: something that has been forgotten that is being enjoyed again. I think old-fashioned chintzes are looking modern again, especially if used sparingly….” —Miles Redd
“Chintz is making a big comeback. Using the same floral fabric on the walls, window treatments, and furnishings—think English country but updated. Lots of florals and colors that pop, like turquoise, apple green, and shocking pink.” —Kathryn M. Ireland
I’ve started to bring some chintz pieces back into my world. I LOVE my chintz chair by Rowe.
“I predict that classic, traditional design elements will be back in a big way in 2018! They’ve certainly never gone away entirely, but over the past few years, everyone has gone mad for modern. Given the uncertainty of our current political and social climate, it makes sense that people would gravitate to classic, sure-fire favorites to make their homes a true respite from the rest of the world. Get ready for antiques, traditional brown furniture, and printed fabrics such as floral chintzes to make their mark in the new year.” —Paloma Contreras
Yes! I still have 25 year old brown leather pieces with a deep patina and (now!) puppy chew marks.
And I love my antiques!
