High Point Market: Day 2!

High Point Market: Day 2!

20151016_174515

Our second day of market proved inspiring and overwhelming at the same time!

With the thousands of vendors to see, we managed to mark a good number off our list…some, a few hours for an appointment, others a quick drop in. With client memos and a few personal needs as well, we made copious notes and photographs for review and filing. All in all, a long day of walking, “ooooing” and “aaaahing” and being creatively inspired!

Lots of color, from art to pillows to bedding and wall color. I. Love. Color.

Velvet pillows with contrast welt…pink! Oh. My.

Again…pink! It’s on my radar.

Animal prints will be seen market after market…they remain classic and work with transitional to modern designs.

Zebra, cheetah, antelope, leopard…it’s all good!

Hair on hide benches, chairs, and rugs are stylish options for any room…count me in on this classic trend.

I spotted these zebra and chrome twin benches in the Vanguard showroom and fell in love. Backed up to a sofa, placed in a foyer, or dressing your hallway, these darlings will steal your heart too. *Sigh*

Animal print…it’s here to stay.

Fresh color did not did not disappoint today! While I and my design staff have been designing with stunning coral color pallets for months, it is always great to see the trend we have proposed and used at the forefront of market trends.

This fabulously bright combination of fabrics designed by Dana Gibson for Stroheim Fabrics drew us into the first showroom of the day. Florals, graphics and the contrast of clean white is both classic and striking. A guest becroom would be a delightful retreat when dressed in this trending color. A personal favorite accent wall could be considered in Sherwin Williams Ardent Coral.

Custom monograms in several font selections personalize this matlisse coverlet…a single letter or a trio, perfect!

Consider navy, perhaps high gloss (!) as an accent wall. Coral + navy + white—Love! Pair this color combination together with crisp banding against white and you are heading for pure style.

Lastly, this graphic and bold coral rug on a dark and rich stained random plank floor will draw any guest in, or perhaps you, the homeowner, for a quiet cozy place to read.

Go for it. Black-eyed Susan has your design vision at our fingertips.

High Point Market style: Picture this Nursery Room

High Point Market style: Picture this Nursery Room

My day of fabulous finds began early as we visited several of my favorite inspirational showrooms. There is always an air of anticipation on the first day of market! Stylish designers abound as the doors are opened to entice all in, each vendor vowing to outdo their neighbor with the best finds and more alluring trends.

Along with placing orders for fabulous new inventory for my retail store, Black-eyed Susan, the list for special design projects and darling clients is long and detailed. Today, in our search for the finishing touches for the new bedroom for the cutest ever two-year-old twins, we came across some oh-so-cute options! I thought I would share a few…

This changing table and mirror just about stole my heart for a new baby room! A bit of modern, almost midcentury modernism with a polished reclaimed look. The removable changing tray prepares the chest for another age and keeps the nursery oh so stylish! I’m in love.

And here’s the matching crib! It has the power to be transformed into a twin bed when needed! I think I this just might be the most stylish, adorable nursery/toddler element to room design that has been introduced at market ever! I’m definitely ready for another nursery design project. I hope you will call me…grandchildren need cool rooms too!

Just look at this bedding and drool….I can’t stand it! It was an “Oh So Susan” find for sure!
