Design is on the Move-
Among the really broad shifts in interior design is a move to New Traditional. The 'New', however, implies a playful, witty spin. For homeowners and builders, this translates into a more layered and sophisticated look- a mix of metals within your room (bronze & copper), intense and saturated colors (especially blues and greens) and an emphasis on the wood grain in furniture and finishes.
Mixed materials and fabrics continue in importance, allowing individuality and personalization in your design scheme.
One example: I'm in love with this wallpaper from Fromental UK. Handcrafted paper with silk embroidery, it's elegant, beautiful and really, really cool. What a statement it makes!
