This week the team attended the Sherwin-Williams Colormix Color Forecast 2019 presentation at Dallas Market Center to get a sneak peek at what they see as the biggest color trends for 2019. As you might imagine, the color trends for home change a lot more slowly than the color trends for fashion. Remember back in the 70s when those avocado green appliances were around for FOREVER?! (The 70s are back, BTW but hopefully we learned a few lessons on colored appliances the first time around.)
Six color stories ranging from cosmic minimalism to bold maximallism and inspired by tech, the Southwest, British libraries, Africa, natural elements and eclectic excess provide a variety of moods and colors for any project.
Inspired by the cosmos and that unique space between tech and spirituality. Clean lines, iridescent finishes and a palette of ethereal blues accented with golden yellow.
Modern western palette featuring the dusty colors of the American Southwest. Worn leather, natural woods and tribal patterns.
Inspired by British libraries and menswear patterns such as plaid and paisley, this palette is a rich, elegant update of the saturated colors of the 50s-70s.
Fully embracing the "more is more" philosophy, this color palette is bold, expressive and excessive. Layered patterns as seen in designs by Gucci and Prada, animal motifs and brocades provide inspiration.
The wonder of nature as both botanic and through an Art Nouveau eye provide the inspiration for this ethereal, sophisticated palette.
Inspired by African heritage and crafts, this palette tells the story of a culture through color, texture and pattern.
Do you have a favorite? Which one are you? Send us your feedback, we'd love to hear from you!
We recently received a Fall 2018 Preview catalog from Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams and let me say, we've already got several pages dog-eared. With a collection named "Modern Bohemian" (excuse me, have we met?) inspired by free-spirited, unconventional looks, it is right up our alley. Saturated luxe velvets, textured neutrals, bold patterns and warm metallics all give us the warmth of fall with just a hint of a vintage vibe. Here are some of our favorites.
For hundreds of years bone has been used as an accent to furniture to add a luminous, pearly finish. From traditional Islamic or Indian motifs to more geometric Art Deco designs, the art of bone inlay adds a luxurious quality to your home decor without being too over the top. Of course, we kinda love over the top, so our favorite pieces range from subtle tonal florals to bold colors and designs.
A color we seem to be crushing on lately is coral. I think the rug in this Spanish-inspired bedroom may have kicked it off, but now it seems we can't get enough of it. It brings such a warm accent to any room without screaming, "Hey! Look at me!"
These lamps we used in the Lakehouse project are from Candelabra and just work so perfectly in this space.
So, naturally when we crush, we crush hard, and our design team was challenged to find their top coral picks to share. Accessories like pillows and lamps are super easy to add as color pops to your room. Pillows are in washed linen from Annie Selke or faux fur from World Market. Ceramic lamp from Wisteria and indoor/outdoor rug from Anthropologie.
If you are ready for a bigger commitment, we love these wallpapers for an accent wall or powder room. Jungle leaves from Katie Kime, and Tivoli Floral and New Leaf prints from Anthropologie.
As we were digging for coral, we came across this amazing chair and ottoman from Kathy Kuo Home. Can't wait to add these to an upcoming project!

So, we may have gone a bit overboard on our swatches last week when we visited the Dallas Design District. The whole team scoured showrooms for fabric and wallpaper swatches and then three shopping bags later, we hauled our goodies back to the office. It was a bit like Christmas morning. You all know how much we love color and well, we definitely found some amazing textiles that we can't wait to incorporate in to our clients' homes.
Andrew Martin's new Hacienda Collection is inspired by Mexican art and wildlife and just make us so happy. The vibrant patterns and colors of the traditional dress of Oaxacan women provide additional inspiration.
Another line we fell in love with is from John Robshaw and features traditional block printed textiles from India with whimsical motifs of elephants and birds. The indigo dyed collections are gorgeous and we are big fans of the mixing and matching of prints. One of these days we need to take a field trip to India to check out this block printing in person. Who's in?
With the addition of our latest treasures, the hoard has grown so much, our basket storage system is about at capacity. Guess it's time to reorganize.
Yesterday our design team took a field trip to the Dallas Design District to check out the latest in furniture, decor, and fabric. These are just a few of our favorite trends that we spotted and can't wait to incorporate them in to our clients' homes. It was also good to know that the blues that we love to use so much aren't going anywhere. Not that we would change our tune anyway.
Indigo prints and ticking stripes were in the most unexpected places, including light fixtures and furniture. We loved this ticking stripe covered table trimmed in leather. Perfect for a beach house! And these indigo dyed fabric chandeliers are just the right amount of bohemian chic.
Bad to the Bone
Bone inlay is a hot trend that we just love. Lamps, vases, mirrors and the most gorgeous bed side table we've seen in a while.
Neutral color palettes are anything but boring when infused with texture and unique design. These whimsical jute pillows are the perfect accent to the black and white bedding, and this unique chandelier combines iron, wood and linen panels in a way that is both rustic and modern. Lastly, this gorgeous bleached teak stool is accented with embedded glass covered in resin
Check back on Monday when we share with you all the yummy textiles we found. Happy Summer Solstice, get out there and enjoy the day!
