Before a trend will permeate interior design publications, showhomes, blogs and luncheon gossip, it will usually begin as a well-kept secret in a specialized niche of the industry. For those of us who are keen to keep tabs on these emerging obscurities turned magazine covers, this article offers a glimpse of insider info. We don't want to ruin any surprises for you, so if you prefer to wait for these trends to appear on your coffee table in a few months, please do not keep reading. However, if you enjoy a trailer of what's to come in interior design, then read on. Consider this your spoiler guide for 2012.
Today's homeowners are actively researching to find Interior Designers and showrooms that can provide them with design expertise as well as efficient and professional service. To find those resources, homeowners are searching the web and flipping through the pages of design publications. The myriad of images all begin to look the same until that one image pops out and strikes a cord. At the Design Guide we like to call this image the “money shot.” It is that single image that stops the buyer from continuing to flip pages and causes them to rethink the possibilities for their own space. As a publisher we see thousands of images a year, and the common thread among all the “money shots” is that they have been professionally photographed.
Imagine a fabulous interior… a home, restaurant or hotel you’ve experienced recently that was so profound, it caused you to stop abruptly and soak in the ambiance, leaving you speechless from the energy and detail of its design. Amazing interiors are like that, in the way that they can evoke emotion, render you to pause in the moment and take sharp notice of your surroundings. Beautiful design does not, however, just magically appear. Walls don’t paint themselves, art doesn’t hang itself and furnishings don’t materialize on their own. The creation of a breathtaking space that’s both visually stimulating and functional takes just the right amount discerning taste, expert guidance and a knack for translating the mind’s vision of the perfect interior into a reality. Enter: The Interior Designer.

This year’s Spring Thing, held at Decorative Center Dallas on April 13 & 14th, was a lively and successful event for the interior design professional. The days included showroom hospitality, raffle prizes, a progressive cocktail party and much more. There were some great pictures taken during the event and we have them available for you to see the fun that was had by all.
It's a beautiful sunny and cool August day in Carmel. Rumor at the local market Bruno's was that it will hit 64. I decided it was the perfect day for an "in and around tour" of Carmel in case you are planning a trip to the area. Spring has arrived as the flowers are in bloom everywhere. The cottages are looking even more charming as the color fills in.
