Mixed Up

The true art of interior design lies in the ability to capture a homeowner’s personality and lifestyle. In doing so, various influences are certain to be present. Foregoing the matching set oft found in furniture showrooms, look to create an environment that portrays one’s interests and experiences by selectively mixing styles, textures, colors and even metallic finishes. Interestingly, some brands have designed this trend into a single collection, as shown here. Roche Bobois Mah Jong modular seating and rugs

Art Deco

Art Deco’s 1920s detailing and inspirations have pervaded home accessories in recent years, but now designers have made a commitment to its unique silhouettes in furniture collections. Characterized by curvilinear shapes, geometric motifs, contrasting colors and clean lines, Art Deco isn’t just for the purist. Signature pieces also add an element of surprise to transitional interiors. Alden Parkes Valencia chair

Upholstered Headboards

Ivy League

Pared-down and simple, yet luxurious, this trend lends itself to nautical influences as seen on the fashion runways of Yves Saint Laurent and Tommy Hilfiger with blue, teal, red, white and gray. Look for tufting in traditional leather pieces, stripes, plaids and contrasting colors in elegant yet comfortable menswear-inspired upholstery and classic wood furnishings.
