Tuesday, Nov 8, 2:00PM
Atlanta, GA – While housing sales continue to be in a lull, there has been a 23 percent increase in redecorating and remodeling to keep homes feeling fresh, new and appealing. With seven furniture and home goods retailers, The Avenue Forsyth is a one-stop destination for consumers looking to update their homes no matter their design style, and these retailers have come together to offer the top 10 fall décor trends.
1. Technicolor: Bright colors aren’t just for summer. Pairing bright accessories, art and rugs with neutral colored basics makes a bold statement for fall.
2. Deep teal: The global authority on color, Pantone, named deep teal as one of the “it” colors of fall/winter 2011. This strong, blue-toned green looks just as great with neutrals as it does when paired with bright orange or red.
3. Espresso browns accented with earth tones: As delicious as the name, espresso brown works with almost any color scheme, and paprika and desert accents enhance wood’s natural undertones.
4. Metallics: Fall and winter are the seasons to shine. Mix high shine accent furniture and accessories with warm fabric, leather and woods for a contrasting look.
5. Fur: Fur adds warmth and texture to spaces. Consider a faux fur throw or a cowhide rug for a dramatic look.
6. Oversized furniture: Size matters, and oversized furniture makes an impressive statement, while also adding comfort and accessibility to a room.
7. Vintage look: Vintage-inspired furniture can add an instant conversation piece to a room, and in the current tumultuous economy, provides a sense of nostalgia and calm.
8. “Healthy furniture”: With 60 percent of Americans reporting sleep problems, savvy consumers are looking to get more from their furniture. Ergonomically designed pieces can provide back support and improve sleep quality, ultimately reducing health issues.
Decorating styles:
9. Mixing old and new: “Matchy-matchy” furniture sets are out, replaced instead by mixing and matching old and new pieces for a traditional look with a modern twist. Consider pairing an antique sideboard with modern art, or a houndstooth chair with bold pillows.
10. Feathers, glitter and metallic for the holidays: It’s not too early to start planning your holiday décor. Building off of the bright colors and bold textures popular this fall, feather, glitter and metallic pieces are sure bets for the holiday season.
