Favorite Trends Spotted At High Point Market

Happy Monday everyone!

I am still trying to catch up on some rest from my trip last week to High Point Market, but I was so excited to write this post about all the design trends that I spotted! These may or may not be what the style experts are saying, but these were certainly my personal favorites.

This post will be picture overload, and very little words (that might be a relief for some of my readers :-) ). Most of the pictures were taken with my iPhone, so please bear with the not so great picture quality.

Ready for some design inspiration? Ok, let’s do this…….

Hair on hide

Hair on hide could be seen on anything from upholstery to case goods to accessories. These pieces are from Lee Industries. The small wedge shaped ottomans were the cutest I have ever seen. I discovered these at the High Point Junior League Show House. Aren’t they divine?

Nail Head Detailing On Case Goods

The nail head detailing trend is not very new, but it definitely isn’t going anywhere for a while. Nail heads could be seen on rustic pieces and refined pieces in all types of designs and finishes

Horn

Katy Interior Designer

Horn is also not very new. It was often used in home accessories. Horn could be spotted in large scale pieces at market like this cocktail table from Palecek.

Bone Inlay

Katy Interior Designer

Bone inlay has always been a favorite of mine. I was pleasantly surprised to see it everywhere at market.

Geodes/Agate

Geode and agate were a permanent fixture at most showrooms. The beautiful colors are definitely eye catching. Some framed as art, some as lamps, bookends and even encased in boxes. Either way, the organic look serves as a great addition to any room.

Encasements

We will be seeing a lot of encased items as a big trend. This encased light fixture is a great industrial look.

Brass/Gold

Brass or gold is bigger than ever and show no sign of slowing down. It was everywhere to be found at market, and I was loving it!

Lucite

Katy Interior Designer

 

Lucite has always been a designer favorite. The combination of Lucite with very textural and tactile fabrics was a big hit at market

Bold Floral

Bold and stylized floral patterns were a big hit as well, especially in fabrics and wallpapers. No one did it quite as well as Bliss Studio. I think I stopped by this showroom about three different times to make sure I didn’t miss a thing :-)

The color blush was one of my favorite finds at market. Here it can be seen in these beautiful soft linens

The color mint was also a big hit, especially combined with navy or orange. Tobi Fairley’s collection for CR Laine was my favorite application of the color mint.

Navy

The classic navy blue was a big hit. The combinations ranged from navy and purple, navy and mint green, navy and chartreuse and the classic navy an white

Chinoiserie will forever be my favorite, and I was not disappointed at market. This last picture was Chinese calligraphy brush heaven! I had to pick up a few……well more like 12 of them :-)

So there you have it – My favorite trends spotted at High Point Market. There were such more things that I love, so I may do a second post at some point in the future.

One Room Challenge – Josh’s Teen Bedroom – Week 4

Hello my lovelies!

I know I have been M.I.A. this week, but with great reason. I have been at the High Point Spring Furniture Market all week soaking up new design trends, ideas and even some learning. In fact, I am writing this post sitting here at the gate at the Greensboro airport.

I didn’t realize how much I would miss my kiddos, and my dog Rufus, whose birthday was yesterday (Earth Day)….and even the studio.

Needless to say, I got nothing done this week for the One Room Challenge :-(

ORC-LP-250x183

For those who aren’t familiar with the One Room Challenge – It is a twice a year design challenge hosted by Linda at Calling It Home Blog. 20 design and lifestyle bloggers are invited to makeover a room in their home, or a client’s home, and blog about the progress over a six week period leading up to the big reveal on week 6. Other participants (like myself) are also invited to join each week through a linking party posted each Thursday. You can check out this week’s linking party here

This time around, and this is my third time, I am re-doing my son’s teen bedroom. Joshua just turned 13 last November, and it was just time to update his room and give him more storage. You can follow the progress of his room makeover: week 1, week 2, and week 3

In my last post, the floors were installed and ready to be stained, and that will happen this weekend.

Basically, the room still looks like this. No change from last week’s post

Painted Walls and Doors

I do know that my seamstress has been texting me all week at market about the window treatment and pillows, so I know those are in the works this week.

I am quite a bit nervous that I am so far behind, so I will have to really push to get this room done in two weeks! Wish me luck.

Hopefully next week I will have a lot more progress to write about. In the meantime, I will leave you with one of my favorite pictures form High Point.

High Point Junior League Show House

Actually, this is from the Randall B.Terry Jr. House for the High Point Junior League Show House. This room was done by High Point based Designer, Leslie Moore. I will be sharing more about this show house tour soon, and more about my trip to High Point.

Well, my flight is about to board! I’ll see you guys later!

One Room Challenge – Josh’s Teen Bedroom – Week 3

Welcome to week three of the One Room Challenge! I am glad you stopped by today.

ORC-LP-250x183

I cannot believe that we are already half way through this six weeks challenge. Linda from Calling It Home Blog was right to include the word “challenge” in the name when she created and trademarked The One Room Challenge a few years ago.

Anyhoo, it is a lot of fun and it pushes you to get a project done in a short time frame. As Designers, we realize that is borderline insanity if we even attempted to do this on a typical project.

If you have been following the progress of Josh’s teen bedroom makeover so far, you will know that I didn’t get a whole lot done last week, but I tried to make up for it this week. Check out my progress here and here

Ok, so let’s see what I got done this week:

Everything has been ordered now, except for the rug. I completely forgot to order it. talk about stress. Lol. This would never happen on a real project for a client for sure.

The plywood floors have been laid and I am so nervous about tackling the stain to achieve the look I am going for. Fingers…..and toes crossed for me please.

This is kind of what we are going for, just with lighter colors (and not so blurry :-) )

The room was also painted. I am so happy I painted the doors like Joshua suggested

What do you think? I love it so much! :-)

The dresser was also painted with stripes, I am trying to decide if I like it, so I won’t share it just yet. the plan is to put in the room and see how I feel about it then :-)

The AWESOME desk arrived, but it is still in the box unassembled. The fabric also arrived for the window treatment and shams, and production will begin on those soon.

The built-ins are getting done next week and that is when I plan to stain the floor. I may do a tutorial here on the blog with this floor, but you can check out another one I did not long ago here

I think that is all I got done this week. I feel like I am still off track just a bit. of course it won’t help that I will be leaving for High Point, North Carolina on Saturday for the Spring Furniture Market. I am super excited about going to see all the latest trends in home fashions, and to attend workshops and seminars with industry heavy-weights, so I am not complaining. Check out my recent post on my countdown to High Point here

So not a lot will be different next week. I am starting to get worried here. Let’s check out what the main participants are up to


Please don’t forget to check out some of the rooms of the other linking participants at the link party going on now! There are so many talented Designers and homeowners linking this edition…..I think over 120! It gets bigger and better every year!
I will be a bit quiet next week here on the blog, but you can follow me on Facebook and Instagram to keep up with the fun I will be having in High Point :-)

The Casa Vilora Interiors “Show Me Yours” Photo Contest Winner!

 

Today is the day for one lucky person somewhere in America with a room that is less than what it could be…….

10968416_10153020705345629_6254476489229958141_n

You may recall The Casa Vilora Interiors “Show Me Yours” Photo Contest that ran from February to the end of April, where contestants were invited to enter and share a photo of their most challenging room, and they could win a custom Mail Order Decorator (eDesign) from us! Click here to see the post #ShowMeYours

Well, I can tell you that as a Designer, I wish that I could redo all the rooms that I received entries for, but I can only pick one winner!

So the room that was picked at random by Woobox was described as, and I quote,

 “Boring basic sitting room right off the foyer; awkward layout to dining room”

After looking at the picture of the room myself, I could see that it has great potential, but just needs a bit of a pick-me-upper!

Before I get to announcing the winner, here is what they will receive:

The lucky winner will receive a full Casa Vilora Interiors eDesign for any eligible room in the home. This includes a space plan with furniture layout, elevation drawing of any key wall or architectural detail (if applicable), window treatment design, fabric selection, paint color and color scheme selection, mood board/presentation board, an organized and detailed shopping list, and a budget breakdown (a $650+ value).

The winner will be required to complete a client questionnaire so we will better understand their design needs. Additional photos of the room, adjacent rooms and even the exterior of the home will be requested before the planning begins.

These were the official contest rules that I would like to share again:

Kitchen, Bathroom and Outdoor spaces not eligible. Only one entry per contestant. Voting is allowed for the entries submitted, but the winner may be chosen at random. Contest is open from Feb 2nd to April 1st. Winner will be announced on April 15th. You will automatically be added to our email list when you submit an entry. Images submitted must be of the room to be decorated. Please do not submit inappropriate photos. Contest may be cancelled if we do not receive enough entries – valid only if we receive at least 25 entries. By submitting your photos, you agree that they will be used in Casa Vilora Interiors’ and The Naked Decorator’s promotional materials and social media platforms including blog posts.

We did receive less than 25 entries, but what the hay, I will still choose a winner :-)

Ok, so here is the room that was chosen for The Casa Vilora Interiors Mail Order Decorator (eDesign) makeover:

Contest Winner

Congratulations Megan!

You must notify us via email (info@casavilorainteriors.com) no later than Monday, April 20th to claim your prize.  Enter I WON in the subject line so I can recognize it easily among my sea of emails! :-)

If we do not hear from you by midnight on the 20th, you will have forfeited the prize, and we may (or may not) select a new winner.

Once we hear from you, we will send you design questionnaire and agreement to complete. We will need additional photos and measurements of your space! You will receive your custom Casa Vilora Interiors design within 8 weeks.

Congratulations again Megan! We hope to hear from you soon!

We will be sharing the design here on the blog once it has been completed, so please subscribe so you never miss an update! We hold great contests like these all throughout the year. You could be the next lucky winner of something fabulous! :-)
