Clean simplicity, minimal styling, and integration with nature are the hallmarks of classic Mid-Century Modern design. Experiencing a revival with the televison show Mad Men, this look has a timeless feel despite originating more than sixty years ago. Look for natural, mid-toned woods (like teak); repeating geometric motifs; and organic forms that emulate elements found in nature.
Organic lines, warm wood accents, and natural materials lend an earthy beauty to the Natural Inspirations design trend. Look for furniture made of wood or wicker; textiles crafted from sisal or jute; and home decor with prints and patterns taken from nature.
The Modern Moroccan style embraces the exotic,creating a sultry mood with fabrics, patterns, and colors drawn from the timeless style of Morocco. To capture this hot trend in your home, look for traditional Moroccan design elements (like openwork quatrefoil patterns and shapely urn detailing) that are updated with unexpected colors and finishes.
The Warm Industrial style blends the urban edge of utilitarian design with the warmth of aged woods and worn textures. The cold steel of the industrial look is replaced with aged iron and metals with rich patinas, and is accented by weathered woods and soft white surfaces.
