Interior Design Trends at the High Style High Rise Tour

The design tourist* and I headed out on a recent excursion to Atlanta to take in the Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles High Style High Rise Home Tour which took place at the Residences at the W downtown. This tour was to benefit the High Museum of Art.

Trend forecaster, Anthony Hughes, defines a trend as the styling, colors, patterns, materials and shapes of a particular season that has a long-term influence on the market. A current trend can be derived from previous season’s trends and also current world affairs and events. 

High Rise High Style features Atlanta interior designers working with local furniture/design stores. The tour includes Kerry Howard (KMH Interiors) for Redefined Home Boutique, Barbara Westbrook (Westbrook Interiors) for Room & Board, William Peace (Peace Design) for Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, Susan Ferrier (McAlpine, Booth & Ferrier Interiors) for R Hughes Showroom, Julia Reed for The Mercantile and Michel Boyd (SmithBoyd Interiors) for Bradley Hughes.

All of the kitchens featured Gaggenau, the world's preeminent brand of restaurant-grade cooking technology for the modern home. A German base company, Gaggenau’s philosophy is guided by three simple principles: design, innovation and technology. The result being a collection of kitchen appliances which stand out in terms of their unique practical advantages, the quality of their materials and workmanship and primarily their simple beauty and functional design.

That is MOSS in all of the frames. It is on all four walls in this powder room.

...Margaret Mitchell is rolling in her grave!

I guess it is hard to compete with views like these!

After this tour the four design tourist are not to sure about the current trends.There were pieces in most of the rooms that I liked. I definitely saw some of the trends of the past making another go around. I will leave it up to you to study the pictures and you decide if these design ideas will perfectly fit your personality and your home décor. Are you ready to step outside the box?
