I’ve tried convincing many of my  Interior design friends that one of my gifts is forecasting the trends that will take off in the real world ( not Just Dwell Magazine) and be profitable.

Just one problem with this type of gift, the results are delayed . So you are now reading a blog in the future; If you are reading this blog Spring of 2017 you have two choices you can read it and let it influence your future home choices so you can say

I did it first !

You can also just put this link in your book marks for a year and send me some feedback next year.

Now for the Forecasts   

Interior design has become a much more hands on approach for the consumer. Since we now have the ability to decorate our own home “expertly” with the help of the Internet and Pinterest … we have a much higher margin of error. So we aren’t doing full room makeovers ,we are investing in one piece at a time.

Fuchsia is so bright,gotta wear shades of pink 

Ottomans, Rugs , pillows , art, and side boards.

For the softer souls with higher budgets there are blush sofas and Chez even light pink Vanity.

If you’re the kind of person who needs to dip their toe in slowly; table top boxes are the perfect way to break into a trend. Shagreen (WTF is that) , tortoise , polished stone and wood canal add a dramatic flair to any room.

In comedy the joke is only funny if there is a straight man. The straight man in this situation is grey and it’s kind of itchy.

Light and dark but full of slightly uncomfortable textures to touch but very visually pleasing!

I hope my Trend Forcast for 2018 can help you change your interiors one piece at a time.

It wasn’t until today that I understood, fashion is more than a formula. Each person has different gifts and my family has been blessed with gift of style.

I think that’s all I can give you tonight, but don’t forget one thing. We laugh a lot, we look horrible often, and we do not take ourselves as seriously as you do! You can’t fail at fashion, but change your outfit!

My New Favorite Artist

  The only thing I know about this young man is his name. I found him on Instagram, and was blown away by his Ball Point Pen Art.

I think the work speaks for it self. My husband and I hope he becomes world Famous…Not just because we own Chief Mitchell,
