You know, I am not one to follow trends really.
I don't jump on the bandwagon of everything covered in faux fur
or all the walls finished with pretty shiplap
I love faux fur and shiplap- don't get me wrong.
But if it is everywhere, it isn't for me.
But last month I went to Las Vegas Market
and noticed several looks, styles or trends if you will
that I was in love with.
#1. Bold and Gold
I walked into Ave Home and their pretty new showroom
and stopped right in front of this vignette that was all about gold.
And that was just the beginning.
Gold has been on trend for awhile now- and I don't think it is going anywhere anytime soon.
From lighting, to painted finishes to simple gilded touches.
The great thing about gold is- you can add it in a big way- or a little way
and make an impact.
A favorite showroom that knocks my socks off every.single.time is Bliss Studio
and they have a way of mixing gold, white, gray and blush that just speaks my language.
I think I usually take about 27 photos in this space alone- just love it.
Details, details, details
There were so many details on display in a big way at market this time.
Details are always there of course- they are what make something interesting
but the ones that were catching my eye seemed to be popping up again and again.
Like those delicate carvings on reproduction furniture
Or these dainty little slipper chairs at Dovetail.
And side note...
I am on the hunt for slipper chairs right now-and think these upholstered in simple linen would be perfection.
Of course, I can't leave out a detail like this...
this is a simple and charming little chest at French Heritage that has an amazing
brass inlay detailing.
Seriously- so pretty in person- absolutely loved that detail.
And one more for the road- intricately detailed lighting.
These Moroccan lights were a huge hit at market-
With colors, pretty patterns and so much intricate detailing- they are gorgeous grouped together and
I have a feeling you will be seeing these lights popping up everywhere coming up.
#3. Raw Finish and Texture
The mix of raw and refined was in full focus at market again.
Whether it was unfinished or simply wax finished woods
Lightly stained woods that let the grain shine through
Or even raw edges in the finish on linens.
Textures and those natural finishes that made something seem like an heirloom
After I was done running around market
soaking up all the inspiration and making note of those things that caught my eye
I wandered out to the Pavilions and did a little bit of vintage shopping.
(theres that texture and raw finish detail again)
And of course, I found a ton that I loved and brought a few things back home with me.
Coming your way tomorrow morning- I will be sharing one of those vintage treasures
in a fun tour all about flowers and home with a few friends.
See you tomorrow!
