Trend Report from High Point Market

We went; we saw; we conquered! Several team members from Cottage Grove Vintage Market visited High Point Market on Monday scouting the latest trends and upcoming directions of home interiors. These are the top styles seen throughout showrooms and we’re eager to share them with you!

Blue and White

This color scheme has been around for centuries and has definitely experienced a resurgence in recent years. It’s hard to call it a trend when it’s a classic combination, but the blue and white color grouping was everywhere! And in all types of styles! If your brain immediately jumps to chinoiserie when you think blue and white, imagine it in bohemian vibes, modern shapes, touches of brush strokes, and marbled textures.  Blue and white has no limits in home decor.

Take note: blue and white in marble tie dye with a painted frame.

Blue and white was on everything…big pieces and accents.

Natural Textures

Woven styles of rattan, wicker, bamboo, and all types of natural elements are being incorporated in interiors through furniture, lighting, and accessories. Many showrooms displayed it with a contrasting smooth structure, like brass or lacquered furniture. Nearly every brand had some sort of rattan lighting in oversized pendants or chandeliers.  

Notice how the natural wood is capped with a brass accent.

Gold and Brass

We’ve been saying for a while that “brass is back,” and from the looks at market, it’s here to stay. The warm metal truly brightens spaces and offers a warm reflection. Lighting fixtures, small furniture, decorative objects and accents--brass isn’t disappearing!

From accents to tables, gilded items were all around.

Big Hardware

Pulls and knobs are a great way to transform a piece of furniture and the styles we saw at market were statement making pieces. Chunky knobs in brass and oversized pulls were on all types of furniture.

Again, lots of gold!

Jewel Tones

Deep colors of emerald, raspberry, and sapphire (more tones of blue) were lacquered on furniture and upholstered in luxurious velvet and soft, leather on sofas, ottomans, and wingbacks.

Painted Furniture

Continuing with the bold colors, furniture was showcased in all hues, on all types of pieces. This is another area designers are adding blue, jewel tones, and big hardware--combining three trends just in one piece!

Notice the glossy lacquer of the furniture (in multiple colors) that allows the gold and lucite giant pull to standout.

Marbled, Painted Brush Strokes

Again, in lots of blue and white, marbled techniques and painted strokes are being added on everything from glossy furniture, to canvases and art, to ginger jars and small accessories.

Coral

Sherwin Williams declared coral is the 2019 color of the year and it was visible at market. Many showrooms featured slight deviations of the hue, going slightly deeper into oranges and almost red, or into the pink spectrum.

5 Ways to Enhance Your Space with Wallpaper

Every time we ooh and ahh over a designed space, there’s a touch of something daring and very often the bold element is achieved through wallpaper. Don’t be intimidated by the idea of enhancing your home with this latest trend. And no, it is not the same dated wall coverings in your grandmother’s home.  Today’s wallpaper trends are much more versatile and affordable. Here’s five ways wallpaper can boost your home decor.

If you only want to dip your toe in this trend, we suggest adding wallpaper to the back of a shelving unit like your china cabinet, kitchen shelves, or secretary. We suggest picking something that will complement what’s on display.

When you’re ready to get knee deep, consider an accent wall. Wallpaper in a bedroom behind the bed can really create a dramatic statement upon entering the room.

Another way to add a small dose of the trend is to wallpaper a small bathroom or powder room. Because these rooms are small, this a great way to get maximum impact with minimum budget and effort. Think of it as the statement earring to your perfectly coordinate outfit; the wallpapered powder room is the perfect accent to your curated home.

Another option you may have never considered—the ceiling!

If you’re ready to dive in, we’ll absolutely support you wallpapering your entire room. Our favorite room to see fully covered is a dining room. Although paper doesn’t have to be formal, carrying it throughout a room does lend a sense of decorum and what better space to do that in than a dining room?

If the full room is too much, consider adding a chair rail and wallpapering the top half of the room.
