Interior Design Highlights from Fall 2011 High Point Market

The last two weeks have been a very busy time. We took a play break to head down to Saint Simons Island, Georgia to celebrate the border war, known as the worlds largest cocktail party! I am referring to the yearly battle in Jacksonville, Florida between the Georgia Bulldogs and the University of Florida Gators. It was a time of celebration on the island, since Georgia was victorious!

Then it was back to work and design time. I am a member of a wonderful organization for designers, the Atlanta Designers' Network. At our meeting on Tuesday we talked about the Fall High Point Market and all the wonderful new products and styles for us designers and our clients to lust over.

The blog world was also humming the past week with new post telling about market and buzz words/phrases that told us where the Fall 2011 trends were heading. What was being "talked about" were:
  • Gray is the new Beige
  • Glamour is back!
  • Green as in "Sustainable" (using reclaimed woods)
  • Peacocks in all motifs
  • Undeniably Modern
  • Equestrian
  • Upholstery Details (pleats, nail heads)
  • Metallics including a burnished brass
  • Intense hues of color - Orange, Turquoise, Lime Green, Purple
DRUM ROLL PLEASE~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Be sure and post on my blog, what new trend you think will be around for awhile!

Remember on the East Coast it is time to change our clocks this Sunday (November 6th)
