Fall 2013 Trends in Home Fashions

Fall Style Trends from Maison et Objet

maisonetobjet

Concurrent with Fashion Week in NYC and London, the Maison et Objet design show in Paris is the mecca of hip for home decor and interior design trends. Here is a full report on colors, prints, materials, and inspirations behind the beautiful designs, products and textiles on display.

The quatrefoil design, meaning four leaves, and its fashionable sister the barbed quatrefoil, were prevalent. This Gothic design is a decorative framework, and lends a cultured Renaissance flair to anything it touches. Watch for it in fabrics, furniture and accessories this year.

Florals are also enjoying a fashionable awakening. Pretty and artistic watercolor florals, mid to large scale blossoms, vintage floral prints and big open flowers were in bloom all over the place. Flowers are fresh, romantic and timeless in decor, it is no wonder they continue to evolve and pop up in different incarnations.

330277 The global-chic tribal trend has gone South. Southwestern designs have shed their salmon cinnamon and earth toned roots and re-emerged as vivid trend-setters in fun palettes. Native American and South American patterns have been energized with pinks, greens and purples for a vivacious twist on the cultured and spiritual design style.

Watch out paint because solid color walls are out and bold graphic wallpaper is back in big time. Patterned walls were predominantly seen implemented as feature walls, with a complimentary color rounding out the rest of the space, but this look was dazzling left and right at Maison this year. Novelty designs, artistic prints and unusual, vivid wallpaper designs have reinvented the traditional looks of yesteryear for unexpectedly high fashion walls that beg to be noticed.

An amalgam of time periods and resources were being mixed with pleasing results, such as natural materials being modernized with sophisticated fittings. Vintage fabrics were everywhere, looking fabulous in contemporary stylings. Reclaimed wood and earthy materials like drift wood, clay and stone worked themselves into au courant designs with fresh colors and modern touches.

Color trends included lots of mid-tone pastels, like dusty pink, taupe, toned down lemon lime, peach, and especially everything aqua, giving a pretty and pleasant look to items. Orange and red were peppering in splashes of warm spice to designs, and opal, mother of pearl, and sequins were bringing an understated luxe. The result was quite lovely and not flashy for very livable looks.

Royal Baby Nursery Ideas

KATE MIDDLETON’S OWN COLOR SCHEME

Everyone has been talking about the birth of Prince George of Cambridge, the son of Prince William and Kate Middleton and third in the line of succession to the thrones of the 16 Commonwealth realms. Just as the royal wedding drew a great deal of attention, individuals are clamoring to hear details about he who some are calling “the most famous baby in the world.”

Espresso Brown Monogram Wall Decal Royal Nursery Decor Idea

In honor of the birth of the Royal baby, we created a post full of Royal baby nursery ideas fit for your very own Royal baby.

 So, what exactly does a Royal nursery look like? We know that Duchess Kate attempted a gender-neutral color pallet, choosing herringbone brown and soft sage over stereotypical blues. To mimic this theme, we have Espresso Brown dots, concentric dots, stripes, and jungle silhouettes.

An espresso brown monogram on your baby’s wall also creates a personalized feel with a classic and regal touch. Our monogram wall decals come with the whole alphabet and one beautiful frame so you can feature your child’s initial and use the extra letters to spell out other inspiring words on the wall.

STAINED GLASS

We also know that the Royal couple and their Royal baby will be living in Kensington Palace, a very traditional royal residence in London. There’s nothing more traditional than stained glass, which has constituted the major form of pictorial art to survive since the Middle Ages.

DAMASK PATTERNS

Another traditional option is a Damask decal. Production of the damask pattern dates back to the Middle Ages, when it was considered one of the five basic weaving techniques of the Byzantine and Islamic weaving centers. This look is luxurious, timeless, and would suit any Royal baby nursery.

Last but not least, a tribute to his country of origin. Prince George will be raised in Mother England, a country rich with culture and one of the style capitals of the world.

WallPops in a Classroom

Dry-Erase Map of the USA with State Capitals Classroom Decor Idea

The beginning of the school year is upon us and while some of us are still enjoying the last hurrahs of summer, many teachers are already hard at work decorating their classrooms! We salute the teachers for the amazing work that they do. We also love to see how creative they can be when bringing personality to a classroom space and adding engaging and educational decor to the room. We have so many awesome wall decals that are perfect for adding a little oomph and a lot of fun to the classroom setting! From functional dry-erase decals and maps, to alphabet sets and cute wall art kits that wont damage classroom walls, we have dynamite designs to kick the school year off in style.

A map is a timeless decor accent, especially well suited to a classroom wall. Our peel & stick map decals range from classy National Geographic designs to engaging kids maps with extra facts like state capitals and symbolic images from around the world. All of our map decals are dry-erase and come with a handy marker.

National Geographic Map of the World for a ClassroomDry-Erase decals are perfect for classroom decor! While kids practice letters, chart science experiment results, create schedules, and learn about keeping track of dates, it is helpful to have a reusable space to write on, erase and write again. Writing on the wall with a dry-erase decal also saves lots of paper and puts information in a central location. WallPops dry-erase decal collection includes chalk decals, message boards, and calendars.

Alphabet wall decals are a grand idea for an educational wall decor in a classroom, and can also be used to organize the room. Many of our ABC wall decal kits come with multiples of each letter so you can spell out things like “recycle” and “wash your hands”. For younger children, having the alphabet on the wall in plain view is a great learning tool as well as a decorative accent perfectly tailored to an elementary school room.

In addition to educational wall art, WallPops can provide a decorative and cheerful look for a classroom. Adding a tree decal to the wall, a colorful splash of butterfly wall stickers or a school of tropical fish can reinvent the look and feel of the room. Engaging kids imaginations with an artistic classroom is a great way to make learning fun!

Can you believe it’s almost time for back to school?! We are always sad to see Summer fade away, but we have to admit that we get pretty ramped up for Fall fashion! Of course we have checked out the Pantone Fashion Color Report for Fall color trends and we are already dreaming about who will have the coolest dorm on campus. This collection of ideas for back to school includes brilliant dorm room decor and phenomenal organization tools!

1. Dry-Erase Decals, where fabulous meets functional! Our peel and stick dry-erase message boards, calendars, maps and planners look lovely while providing a space to stay up to date! Chart your adventures and brush up on geography on a dry-erase map. Maps are classic, they never really go out of style but they have been popping up as a trend in decor and fashion prints recently. A dry-erase message board is a super chic way to decorate your dorm walls, and also works well in a kitchen as a central space to communicate and coordinate busy schedules. A dry-erase calendar keeps your whole month in perspective, and is totally reusable, so technically you will never need to buy a new one! We love decorating with dry-erase because it is interactive wall art.
