As hard as it is to imagine, fall is right around the corner! With this in mind, here are some inspired and inspiring trends which will show strongly in home interiors and accents this fall.

Go Green- eco-friendly products and designs for the home are growing in popularity. People are seeking natural, organic and recycled items for their decor that also have style and beauty.

More is More- more warmth in colors, more luxury and elegance. Leaning away from Minimalist and heading towards Baroque. Fushia is Haute! More drama in oversized lamps, vases, mirrors, decorative accesories. More contrast in color combinations (think robin's egg blue and chocolate) and in textures (think wood against steel).

Gray is the New Gray- gray has been on the upswing for some time, and this fall look for softer grays such as stone, and also gray tone metals such as silver, pewter and platinum.

To quote Coco Chanel: "Fashion is not something that exists only in dresses. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, in the way we live." These fashion trends in home interiors are beautifully represented in the handmade creations featured in the Design Style Guide.

I especially enjoyed this post on trends. It is an excellent way to try to gear some of my future products to these styles. I am wondering if the members here are guided by the Panetone Color Forecasts?
