Runway Fashion Meets Home Decor

It's always fascinating to see the trends of  New York's fashion week that trickle into the home furnishings industry. The latest and greatest on the runways inevitably influence home decor where fabric textures, prints and color schemes pop up on upholstery, furniture and wall coverings.

The way it all comes together gives us a new stylish trend.  Prominent themes this year dish up plenty of  boho chic, a clever term derived from the word bohemian - a love for the unconventional. Characterized by a fanciful mixture of  vintage and modern with victorian frills and metallic details, it's a look that is clearly drawing attention. Exciting applications of color and pattern are bold and plentiful while tribal and ethnic prints lead the way.

What I love about this latest trend is the creative freedom it offers and decided to introduce one of my favorite motifs into our paint finishes - the paisley. The bed posts and center panels of our Barcelona low foot board bed get a generous dose of paisleys in shades of lilac and merlot surrounded by a splash of aqua feathers.
