CoCo Designs on AM NW, Sept. 2011

Local Interior Designer Lora Coburn joined us today to tell us what's hot and what's not for Fall home decor.  You'll find more information from Lora on her blog.
Trend 1: Red
  • Adds instant energy and grabs attention
  • Use for bold accents with neutrals for contrast
Trend 2: Polka Dots
  • Use in moderation with accent pieces, accessories, etc.
  • Black and white combo seams to be most widely used
  • Keep it simple
Trend 3: Phlox (fancy name for a shade of purple)

  • Dramatic color
  • Deep purple with hint of mystery per Pantone
Trend 4: Texture
  • Gives definition and depth
  • Embroidery, tweed, plaid, wallpapers, metallic leathers, pebble textures, silk
  • Mix and match to add interesting element into room
Additional Info:

  • Monochromatic is still IN
  • Bold geometric prints are IN
  • Chocolate Brown is OUT -- lighter browns and tans taking it's place
  • Soft Lavendars are OUT
  • True Orange is OUT
  • Incorporating old with new is still going strong
  • Metallic leathers are IN
  • Plaid is IN
