What do I see as a trend for 2010? There are a lot of trends but here are a few that I see going strong in 2010.
Techno Chic: A fresh start, showing optimism and progress with smart features that make all the thinking for you. Everything from faucets to fireplaces, with high-tech touches that make it so simple in terms of aesthetics and user-friendliness. Water faucets with aerodynamic features featuring a touch sensitive screen technology that will preside at the ideal water temperature and will control your water consumption, making your room ecological bath while being chic.
Ode to nature From stairs to shower cabins, I see decorative graphics inspired by nature. Concrete stairs sporting a graphic pattern of winding tree branch. Integrate all natural, architectural and sustainable things into an ultra-modern Zen set.
Ethnicity The craft is precious. Folk patterns and intricate workmanship: Embellishments, embroidery and details are embroidered in this trend.
Color Futures Earth Elements: natural colors taken from plants, minerals and soil, such as sub-black olives, yellow ocher, iron oxide and tarnished gold. Mixed pale earth tones are used on glossy surfaces such as reflective lacquered white sand, clear avocado and scorched metals.
Illusion: Atmospheric tones accentuated by the light of the aquatic blue grays such as the "Castle Walls" color used in the Encore penthouse. The translucent and fluid clouds of smoky gray steel at the base of this palette are vermilion red and brown horizon.
Cityscape: A cutting edge modern palette consisting of flesh, silver, dark purple, aqua aqua, navy blue and a very pale green apple. There is no doubt that the livability of our planet will continue to dictate a new design framework for all of us.
Who are my design icons: My tastes are a wild mix! Warren Platner, Philippe Starck, Charles and Ray Ames, André Putman for their attention to detail and modern simplicity. Sister Parish and Jamey Drake for their use of color and to gather things that they like and not because they match. Barry Dixon, Barclay Butera and Ralph Lauren for their sophistication yet a casual mix of timeless design. Thomas O & # 39; Brien and Kelly Wearstler for their edgy luxury design and Barbara Barry for her matched elegance.
Tip: Take your time and buy the quality – you'll love it forever! From rugs to upholstered items, you're always looking for quality. Remember, quality provides richness and depth that can not be reproduced.
