Design Trends 2013: All that glimmers

Our own Stephanie Holdaway wrote a fantastic article in this year’s Utah Valley Parade of Homes magazine featuring this year’s design trends and we’ll be highlighting some of those trends on the blog this upcoming week.

We see the Parade of Homes as a great time to be inspired to make little updates in your home, rather than letting yourself feel overwhelmed by everything new.  Making a few updates here and there can completely change the way you feel about your home, and we want to help you feel wonderful!

Our first design trend is: all that glimmers


Glam elements bring shimmer into your home when blended with other trends.  We’ve been using silver and nickel for some time, and now brass and gold are strong on the metallic scene.

I love the warmth that the brass and gold bring into a space.

Watch for nail trim in natural and brass to add richness to the rustic raw look. Bring metals in as accent tables, lamps, frames, and hardware.

Even fabrics have been infused with metals to add sparkle in pillows, chairs, and ottomans.
