Decorating for the Artistic Soul

Archive for June 5th, 2009

Because of today’s economy and the need to think “green” about the environment, the trends and fads this year were far more subtle than they usually are.  Organic materials, in earthy colors, and hand crafted items that are not as showy and glamorous, along with natural textures are the rule.

At long last, wallpaper is coming back, but more as country scenes, outdoor murals, and large textures. The bright stripes and bold, loud patterns are no more. Oranges and browns are back after years of being ignored, but are being shown with teals, greens and navy blues. White walls are passe. Silver is last year, but gold touches on furniture, picture frames, rimmed vases, etc. are in big time.

Throw pillows are in, but keep the colors muted; perhaps in the mineral tones of grays and taupes,  and have some stitching, leaf patterns, wooden beads or shells tacked on.   Casual, comfy and retro is the way to go. Used furniture and antiques are hot now, and easily found at estate sales, auctions, flea markets, garage sales, and resale shops.

As a result of the new awareness of our ecological problems, shabby chic is also popular, because of the recycling of older furniture, fabrics, accessories, and flooring. Decorative screens and room dividers are popping up again, adding both interest and serving function in your rooms; especially in rental apartments, studios, and work spaces. And when you buy new, choosing recycled materials, or natural products that reproduce quickly, such as bamboo and cork, are the best choices.
