Color Trends

posted in: Journal | 0

It’s always been fascinating to me how color trends are researched and predicted.  Color forecasters look at various aspects when predicting the next year’s trends.  Current and upcoming events like an election or the Olympics, technology, current fashion trends, and various other factors help them pinpoint what colors will be seen in architecture, home décor, and fashion.

PPG Color Experts brainstorming this years color trends

 

After attending High Point Market this year, one of the biggest trends I saw was color, lots of color.  Recently I attended a seminar sponsored by PPG, all about color forecasting and this year’s color trends.  I saw examples of three distinct trends at market, which coincide with three palettes PPG predicted.

Rustic Simplicity

The first palette we call Rustic Simplicity, which consists of pigments found in nature.  These colors have a vintage spirit and are a blend of both the old and new worlds.  Nature is a huge driving force for this palette and the architecture inspired by it, while still having a contemporary and casual feel.  Hammered metals, patterned and carved woods, suedes, and stamped leathers make up the materials unique to this palette.  Overall this scheme is earthy and understated.

Here are two projects we’ve designed that make use of the Rustic Simplicity palette.

Luminous Hues

 

Luminous Hues is the next color trend.  This palette is a fresh, bold scheme which mixes dazzling brights such as royal blue, imperial green, citron and Chinese red with softer neutral tonalities. Driven by self-expression and technology, interiors have more of a glamorous 70’s look.  Chrome-finished metals, dimensional wood paneling, and metallic patent leathers are the perfect companions to this eclectic palette.

This room done by Eric Cohler is a perfect example of Luminous Hues and was featured in Traditional Home.

Bright, lively hues fill this Gameday house in Auburn, that we had the pleasure of designing.

Soft Serenity

Finally Soft Serenity is the antithesis of Luminous Hues.  A soothing, soft, inviting scheme of azure blues, lavenders and blushes with accents of dark gray and black to anchor the ethereal spirit. This palette offers an escape and refuge from the fast pace of life and promotes balance and peace.  Austere, quite spaces are created with accents of satin brass, bleached driftwoods and floral prints.  Subtle, harmonious spaces best describe this tranquil palette.

Both of these spaces with their soft pastel and neutral palettes reflect this trend exquisitely.

My Design Style:

Blending traditional Southern style, with details that are thoughtfully designed and cleanly executed is what authenticates my designs.  I believe in creating homes that are a reflection of my clients’ sense of place, and through the process of research and study, inspiration for each project is found.

Today especially after the down turn in the market, I am designing homes smaller and more intimate in scale.  With this in mind, I choose to focus on the interior architecture of the space. Sustaining the same respect for interior architecture that is bestowed upon the exterior design is important. This respect allows me to form a solid foundation in my designs through the use of moldings, ceiling details and cabinetry.  It helps me to create beautiful, authentic and purposeful spaces.  Where great design, meaningful furnishings, color and texture coax emotion as one walks through the door.

My Proudest Accomplishment:

Establishing one of the South’s leading interior design firms through the creation of timeless thoughtful interiors for my clients fills me with pride.  I’ve also had the privilege of being featured in publications such as: Traditional Home, Southern Living, The Washington Post and Southern Lady.  My firm has won several ASID design awards including Platinum. 

Giving Back to the Community:

Helping my community and beyond is just as rewarding as finishing a design project.  Currently with Auburn University, I serve on their Interior Design Advisory Board, giving faculty and students advice and feedback and on the Executive Board for Women’s Philanthropy as Scholarship Chair.  I also am the Trust and Endowment Chair for the Episcopal Church of the Nativity, past Chairman for the Huntsville Museum of Art Gala and Foundation Board Member, and an active ASID member.

My Design Background:

After receiving my Bachelor’s degree, over 30 years ago, in Interior Design from Auburn University, I founded Accents of the South; one of the first of its kind in the South.  From my hometown of Huntsville, Alabama, my firm and I design custom high-end residences throughout the Southeast and beyond.  Integrating interior design with architecture, I design spaces that are both functional and masterfully detailed, while remaining loyal to the Southern integrity in design.  It is my goal to maintain the ideals of the quote from Willie Morris, “ In the South, perhaps more than any other region, we go back to our home in dreams and memories, hoping it remains what it was on lazy, still summer’s day twenty years ago”.

“Prelude to Spring”

posted in: Journal | 0

Entertaining has always been a passion of mine, from preparing the food to setting a lovely table.  Over the years, I’ve been so fortunate to have been featured in many magazines including Traditional Home, Southern Living and Southern Lady for entertaining and table design.  In Southern Lady’s February 2016 issue, you’ll see one of my table settings, “Prelude to Spring”.

Drawing inspiration from Mottahedeh’s Tobacco Leaf design of china, warm pinks, azure blues and vivid yellows were selected.  A light azure blue tablecloth was used to anchor the table. Tall antique flower buckets are full of antique roses, from my dear friend, Eleanor Loring’s rose garden, accompanied with parrot tulips and blue hydrangea. These dramatic centerpieces really set the table off!  I also used soft rose-colored wine glasses from Phoenix Crystal, to pull the pink tones from the china.

I wanted to keep the feeling light, casual and whimsical, so some playful touches were added.  Always looking for new and unique place card ideas, and for this tablescape I found wooden birdcage tags, which help display each guest’s name and double as napkin rings.  This small detail ties in with the ivy-filled birdcages nestled in between the floral arrangements, adding a fun and personal touch to the entire table setting.Accents of the South by Beverly Farrington - Huntsville Interior Design - picture1 “Prelude to Spring” %
