High Point Market Preview: Top 5 Finds

The fall High Point Market is a little less than a month away, and I am so excited to return as a Style Spotter for the second time! My first opportunity as a style spotter was at the spring market back in April, and I had such a fun experience exploring the new collections from some of the best designers and vendors in the world. You can find a recap of my spring market adventures .

Now that I have one market experience as a Style Spotter under my belt, I am even more excited to return for round two as a seasoned pro in the style-spotting department. While many designers keep their new collections under wraps until the big reveals at market, I was able to check out pieces from a few of the top vendor’s collections for a Twitter chat I participated in with my fellow Style Spotters. From what I have seen, the fall market will not disappoint!

From blush fabrics to brass finishes, here are some of my favorite pieces I have uncovered so far.

As interior designers, my team and I are always on the lookout for new products and ideas to incorporate into the classically current designs we create for our clients, and what better way to preview the newest collections from some of our favorite vendors than over a glass of bubbly without even leaving the office?

We recently hosted a “Sip and See” at our Houston interior design studio and had a blast exploring the gorgeous new collections from , and and, of course, enjoying some cocktails.

Here are some of the new designs we can’t wait to try out!

Kitchen Meet Color: Big Chill Appliances

Kitchens are often the most difficult room in the house to incorporate pops of color into the design. Enter Appliances to save the day!

Big Chill offers brightly colored kitchen appliances as a splashy alternative to the standard black, white or stainless appliances that have become our go-tos. From refrigerators and dish washers to and microwaves, Big Chill’s vibrant, retro, and modern styles are what our classically current dreams are made of.

In a recent visit to the Big Chill website, a gorgeous cabernet and copper stove caught my eye and it was love at first sight. Immediately, the design ideas started flowing and I began thinking off all the ways I would design a fab kitchen around this stove alone. Far too impatient to wait for a real-life opportunity, I instinctively began creating a style board for a fantasy kitchen with this gorgeous appliance at the center.

Here is the result of my most recent interior design daydream!

Interior Design: Our Current Obsessions

As part of our classically current design philosophy, our team tends to shy away from building our designs around the hottest interior design and home decorating trends from year to year. This does not mean, however, that we don’t keep up with the trends.

In fact, on any given day, you will see and hear our team in the office pouring over the newest editions of design magazines, browsing Pinterest and obsessing over new ideas to incorporate into design projects for our clients. That is our secret to keeping our current!

Here are some of the design ideas the team of are buzzing about right:

Fashion to Furnishings | Fern Green

Via Lonny Mag, “Leading design experts weigh in on this season’s hottest must-have hue. The Color: Fern Green, The Expert: Miles Redd.” Miles Redd is the creative director of Oscar De La Renta Home, so it goes without saying that we trust his insight. We love that this color hasn’t particularly been in the spotlight lately, making it a fresh addition to our ever-changing wardrobe. We also love this this color has a stigma for being “Spring-Only”, when it really is not.

Fashion to Furnishings Friday | Black Leather

Fall is undoubtedly our favorite season of the year. There’s no more appreciable fashion or trend transition than the shift from summer floral to Fall black and burgundy. We also love the fresh change of pace fashion blogs and trend websites, it’s exciting for everyone. This year, not unlike the last (few), black leather has taken center stage and called dibs on a noticeably large area within our closets. We don’t only love wearing black leather, we love decorating with it as well. The more the merrier, really. What are some of your favorite black leather items?
