Designing With Carol


Carol Collins, WFCP-Expert

Style Trends!

As we read through design magazines, peruse the stores and even watch the design shows on television, we easily see what the style trends are for each season of the year. But please, remember to choose what you love, regardless of what might be in style.

Country Living has come up with a list of ins and outs that I thought I’d share with you.

On the outs this year: all-white interiors. Forget farmhouse white and gray. Choose to bring interest into your interiors with browns, blacks, greens and blush. Add a little drama with dark walls, even if it’s just one wall.

Following close behind in the outs are marble, copper and boring bedding, as well as geometric furniture. Replace these with relaxing retreats, such as wonderfully designed iron beds or even upholstered beds.

Pull a cozy velvet upholstered chair into a corner for an instant reading nook.

Textures add depth to any décor. From linens to velvets, raw silks to wool – all bring beautiful warmth to windows, furniture, bedding and yes, even walls.

Add fringes to your pillows and banding to your draperies. Bring textured pillows to your coaches, chairs and bed.

There are so many choices to be made. Look around you and pull what interests you into your design.

The staff of Carol‘s wishes you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
