Spring 2009 Interior Decorating Trends

The new interior decorating trends are bringing bold statements to the forefront using lots of sparkle and flash, along with strong graphic appeal.
If it has crystals on it, then it must be good.  Adding crystals, beading, sequins, or sparkle to anything is huge.

Ronald Redding’s new collections of papers use optional crystal accents to an otherwise everyday pattern.  Lighting drips with it and fabrics are adorned.  This trend follows the current mirror craze, in which mirrored tiles and panels can be found all over tables, accessories, and other wares.  Both add light and life to dark areas of your home.

First came Ed Hardy’s tattoo inspired clothing and shoe line.  Now the swirling graphics of hearts, vines, skulls, and roses are edging their way into home decorating.  Watch for it to show up mainly in bedding, throw pillows, and fabrics.  This trend will appeal more to the new generation of decorators, giving a rock and roll feel to their environments.

Gothic inspired architectural shapes are showing up on furnishings as well as fabrics.  This tile influence shape comes four-lobed or in other intricate patterns, mimicking English garden mazes.  Historically this motif was found in churches and cathedrals of the Gothic Revival and Renaissance periods.   Find it in fabrics, furniture, mirrors, and everywhere in between.
These are just a few of the hot new trends for spring – watch for bright shots of color alongside soft neutral palettes for color pairings.  Candy colors of pink, yellow and orange will stimulate the senses.  Fashion and interior design continue to close the gap between them, taking cues from high end designers.
