Tracy Bulla”Tracy Bulla”I hate to say goodbye to summer, but the whirlwind tour of summer shows brought – as always – plenty of pretty things to love! As we head into fall, the design mood is effortless, elegant and literally, lighter. Both natural elements and colorways – think white, cream and beige – set the tone for clean, refreshing style that is just right. Here, a look at the top 10 trends for the season.

Geometric Prints – Look for bold, brilliantly hued link, lattice, flame stitch, chevron and more to stand out

One of a Kind – Handmade, artisan designs — think hand-blown glass and original art — come into their own this season

Metallic – Directional on nontraditional surfaces, such as linen and cowhide, but found on all designs for the home

Jewels – Crystals and semi-precious stones like turquoise, quartz and chalcedony luxe up even the simplest of designs

Damask – Updated renderings bring new life to this timeless traditional print

Lavender – Subdued hues of purple, such as lilac and aubergine, offer a refreshing sense of elegance

Natural Elements – Straw, rattan, jute, burlap and sustainable woods underscore the clean appeal of the organic movement

Fish Motifs – With a continued presence of the ocean variety, lake dwellers make a big splash

Light Finishes – White lacquer and pale natural wood finishes lighten up the overall mood

Accent Colors – Bold pops of orange, citron, turquoise and peacock accentuate a pale, neutral hued landscape

Can’t wait to see you in High Point!
