It’ finally New Year’s Eve, and I’m sure that all of you are ready to get your party on to ring in 2014 just as much as we are over at Studio M! It’s been such a whirlwind of a year for our firm with so much going on between completing new construction projects, public speaking engagements and being featured regularly in Florida’s largest newspaper.
Personally, one of the most memorable moments for me was being a part of the Style Spotter excitement, and cheering on Studio M’s principal designer Michelle Wiebe as she won twice consecutively in the same year. The coolest part of that whole experience was being able to see what next year’s trends will be, and one trend that I’m particularly fond of and hope to see more of in 2014 would have to be lacquered walls. You already know that I’m completely mesmerized by shiny things, but lacquered walls are such a versatile statement that can fit in a wide array of interior designs, from ultra-contemporary to totally traditional without looking out of place.
Some of my favorite colors that I’ve seen in different interior design magazines and various websites would be navy and chartreuse. I’m not really even a big fan of green hues, but a shiny chartreuse wall is just perfection for me somehow. I am, however, a huge lover of shades of blue and navy is no exception. Whether it’s in a modern living room or a traditional study, it pretty much always works well.
I feel like 2013 was about getting creative with wallpaper application, from wallpapered built-ins to beautifully textured and pattered papers from some of today’s top wallcovering manufacturers like Phillip Jeffries and Schumacher. I’m predicting 2014 will be the year that the world becomes familiar with and embraces lacquered walls. Whether or not I’m alone in this thought is yet to be seen, but even if I’m the only one that thinks this look is amazing, I’d still love to see more of it in the New Year!
