Trends In Our Home

Link Party Featured Artists and Home Trends

Those of you that work in the design field, whether it be graphic, fashion, or interior designing, you know that every hot trend makes its way into the mainstream marketplace and into our homes.  

It may start with a popular color of paint, a retro fashion that is recycled for today’s retail clothing shops, or a simple graphic.  In fact, did you know that paint companies spend thousands of dollars each year on research to determine the next popular colors for the interior of homes, because color is a big indicator of popular design that crosses over into art, interior fabrics, and even in clothing trends.

I have recently caught one trend obsession myself,  chevrons, and have added bright chevron pillow covers, custom made curtains, and I even recovered my bar stools with chevrons.  My living room decor just got a makeover. I’ll share those photos soon when the design redo is complete.

Speaking of chevrons, today’s featured designers and artists are all about trends that are huge right now and are now coming into our homes, some in big statements and some in smaller accessories that make a bold statement like these bright and cheerful
