Audra Lowe: Decorating itself can be pretty mind bugling you know you’re trying to figure out what colors do I get and how can I make something old look new with a little texture. Well Rhiannon inside down with Jennifer Adams one of the Nations top designers to talk about the latest trends for you home from color to accents. Let sure to add a little finish. Rhiannon Ally: Today we’re talking the hottest trends in home right now and I am so excited for the first one because purple my favorite color and you say that’s right now. Jennifer Adams: It’s hot everywhere you seeing it in the fashion, you’re seeing in homes you know I don’t recommend getting bright purple so much. Ten years ago and I have to recover them, but doing in your accents is something you can do on your own. Adding the throw pillows like this photo we’re looking at now, they’ve got as a dobby cover which is easy to change out some of your accent pillows on your bed, did you actually haven and eggplant wall which is nice because that can be still be use as a neutral, it’s not like a— I wouldn’t put the sweeter colored of my sweeter on your wall or in the outside of you house. Right now purple is very, very hot and you can vary the shades, you can add light purples with the dark purples in different textures. Rhiannon Ally: I love that; keep it minimal that we say, okay. Jennifer Adams: Keep it minimal and use as accents, gold is really hot right now like the warm metals it long gone now are the days bright silver shinny and more contemporary objects. We’re seeing the warm metal in the faucet and your bathroom hardware, in your light fixtures, you can change out your bath accessories to be more the warm metal tones. And it’s not the brass, it’s a difference it’s more warm gold and that’s really, really popular. Rhiannon Ally: So version it goes out. Jennifer Adams: You know what it almost is and I hate to say it because everybody is been using it and everyone has it. Rhiannon Ally: But yes, I’m not really, I’m not adding that in the homes right now. It’s all the goal that’s huge thing. Jennifer Adams: Okay. Rhiannon Ally: Comfort is a big deal because the whole satiation trend. Jennifer Adam: Yeah people are not going away as much they’re seeing at home, and so putting that vacation in back into there home and they’re one in comfort so the way that you can add that into your home without breaking the back is make sure your bad is unbelievably comfortable, layer your bed properly for the best sleeping experience. Rhiannon Ally: Good lay in bed instead of long vacation. Jennifer Adam: Yes, and that’s the vacation for a lot of people. What we are put on our blog exactly how you layer your bed and get comfortable lines, add extra throws, extra pillows onto your sofas, more ambient lighting like lamp or something that strike the house just think what’s warm, what’s cozy and also functional because your home and you are going to be using your house so think about in terms of every single person in your home what they need to actually feel comfortable. Rhiannon Ally: Maybe make each room design to each person and each person. That makes sense. Jennifer Adams: The other thing I’m seeing a lot of is raw woods. And you are not just junky, but more of that provincially you feel a restoration hardware is got a lot of there right now so bringing the raw wood make your sideboard or your dining table even the legs on your chairs but it adds a little nice warm feel in all that texture. But I’m seeing that all over. Rhiannon Ally: Is texture really big right now? It seems like it is. Jennifer Adams: Each texture really important in any room and in any type of fabric just the way you put those textures together can break your entire design planner it can also make your plan. So yes, texture is huge especially if you want comfort and warm. The other thing I’m seeing a lot are nail heads. Rhiannon Ally: Nail heads? Jennifer Adams: Nail heads are everywhere, you can see them on the draperies right now line. I think West Home has nail heads on one of there drapery panels as they’re offering but you can add them to an apostrophes you are already have just by putting them around the base of the sofa or at the arms of your chair but get creative with that accessories that have nail heads and its not just the rustic old nail heads studies so you can get a really big bold shinny nail heads to have move of the glamorous feel you can go from rustic to glamorous it’s very versatile. Rhiannon Ally: Okay, thank you so much Jen and all of these great trends right now and most of them you can just do it yourself. Jennifer Adams: Exactly. Rhiannon Ally: Thank you so much.
