High Point Market {Fall 2014 Trends}

Last week we were in North Carolina for Fall High Point Market. It’s HUGE and finding the time to see it all is nearly impossible to do in three days. But, we gave it our best shot and today I wanted to share my favorite trends.  High Point Market has been called “Fashion week for furniture” and it did not dissapoint this Fall. As a designers, we have access to new introductions 6 months to a year before they are available in the retail market.  It is inspiring, exciting and a great way to stay on top of what is new and next in the design world.

The are obvious trends, like the ones you see plaster all over Pinterest and design blogs that fade out over time. And then there are the trends that will continue to make a statement and become classic design elements in the worlds of design.

 

A WALK IN THE WOODS:  Lacquered, distressed, textured and exotic woods continue to make an appearance and you will see the most fabulous pieces make a statement. My favorite, the modern & classic silhouette accented with gold leafing, acrylic and lacquer.

HEAVY METALS: Chrome, polished nickel and stainless steel have a new friend. Brass has been making a comeback and from the looks of it, here to stay. The warm tones and mix of gold leafing and polished finishes are the perfect addition to any space.

FUR AND FEATHERS: Texture was big this Fall at market and you are seeing fur and feathers popping up all over the place. Fur has a new updated look with deep tones and luxurious pieces that are affordable and stylish too. Feathers are making a big appearance in rugs, lighting and art with exquisite detailing and artsy elements.

COLOR OF THE MOMENT: Blue! I have been obsessed with upholstering our living room sofa in a chic cobalt velvet lately.  I think my instincts are right on, because this beautiful hue is here to stay but in a super chic way. Acrylic accents, bold furniture pieces and textural hides were all over market. Blue is the new black!

CHAIN LINK: This killer trend is a classic and manufactures are showing plenty of it with their new collections. My favorite pieces are the chain link furniture collection from Bernhardt. I love how they choose a large scale link for their desks, etageres and hardware.  Since chain link can be bold and aggressive, using it in small doses of brass will easily bring the updated industrial look to your home.

Pillow Pairings

Pillows are one of my favorite ways to bring in color & pattern to a space! They can be easily changed out each season and can range in price to help keep you budget in check. I love keeping my favorite pillows out year round, but adding a few new to mix up the look through the year! Here are a few of our favorite pillow pairings from The SHOP TEN 25 Fall Lookbook! We hope you feel inspired to mix it up around your home this fall!!

Fall Look Book {Shop Ten 25}

It’s here!!! The 2014 Fall lookbook for Shop Ten 25 is live! We have pulled together a handful of fabulous tips, inspiration and included a few of our vendors and favorite designers to help us get your home ready for fall. When I started Shop Ten 25 in 2008 with a $100 e-commerce template, I had no idea that it would take off and become a huge part of my life. We are still a small exclusively online boutique, and I love that I am able to fill The Shop with pieces that I love and would actually use in my own home.

We hope you enjoy the lookbook, and we look forward to bringing you more inspiration and design tips as the seasons change!  I have to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all of our amazing vendors that keep us inspired and of course to all of the designers out there that work with us to bring great style to their own clients.

And now….it’s time to show it off!!!

Inspired By The Runway

Although I obsess with all things interiors most of the time, fashion has always been a big inspiration for me when designing for our clients.  Color, pattern & texture are present in both and wearing a trend or living with it go hand in hand.  Agates,  metal stud detailing, butterflies and abstract prints are all over the runways right now, so we paired the looks with a few pieces from Shop Ten 25.  Now who says your home can’t be fabulous and fashionable?

Happy Friday!

I love being surrounded by beautiful art and accessories in my bathroom. And, since I don’t share a bathroom with my husband (pretty sure that was the best decision we have made) I am able to bring in the girly pieces that I love. Here are a few tips for creating a bathroom or vanity space that will look like a million bucks and make getting ready something to look forward to.

#1-Adding a tray on the counter keeps my perfume bottles and other small skincare containers organized

#2-Pretty acrylic containers store my cotton balls, q-tips and other items that I use on a daily basis.

#3-Bathrooms are a bit more challenging to bring color into, but adding a smaller scale lamp and framed art pieces will always do the trick.

#4-And my favorite way to create a customized look, change out that standard mirror for something more decorative on the wall.
