Go Bold, Go Navy!

Lovelace Interiors

By Brooke Williams

Within the past few months, the use of navy is emerging as a popular trend in Interior Design. There’s no question in my mind as to why. If you think about it, navy can be a great neutral. It’s the perfect alternative for when people don’t like to mix black and brown. Navy is a great “safe” bold color. It’s a very rich color that complements many interiors and provides wonderful contrast to a home.

You can add a high sheen or lacquer and this color takes on a sexy new approach- of which I happen to LOVE.

How can you bring navy into your home? Furniture and accent pillows easily mix into most all design styles. Navy decor and/or a statement lamp can serve as a solid anchor and collective focal point.  Art is a wonderful way to provide interest and depth on your walls.

So as you can see, navy gives that “warm, cozy” vibe and can be modern or traditional, sleek or textural!

Florals Galore

As the old saying goes, April showers bring May flowers! And so will be true for the Interior Design world as well. Florals are a huge hit right now! High Point Market is currently underway and I suspect many vendors will have implemented florals into their design or inspiration. Of course our fabric vendors have beat them to it! This spring, we are seeing great new florals textiles and wall coverings. Some may think it’s a little dated to go back to the floral decor, but some may like this modern approach to the traditional florals.




Take a look at some of the bold, large scale florals that are making a scene. Where could you use a touch of these in your home? Powder baths, guest bedrooms, sun rooms, and kitchens are rooms that can always have a little fun!

Classic Black and White

There’s just something so classically and timelessly beautiful about a stark black and white interior. Add a little gold, and you’ve upped the ante. So, you’re scared of black lacquer walls or a black velvet couch? Start small with a graphic pillow or a glitzy lamp. I promise you won’t be disappointed with the outcome! Take a look at some of these inspiring images that make use this never-going-out-of-style color grouping. Just Stunning!

Market Finds and Trends

Fall Market in HighPoint, North Carolina was a success! Susan Lovelace, Bunny Hall, and I worked for 3 days straight to find the newest and greatest merchandise for the showroom. From black and white pops to bold navy and golds, color was a huge trend throughout the show. Here are a few groups that really stood out, and that will be arriving to the store in the following months.
Vanguard Furniture: Mix and Match Dining
We just love the idea of mixing and matching when it comes to dining groups. A table with 4 matching chairs is just okay, while a dining bench with upholstered side chairs add that wow factor. Mix that with a leather or vinyl wrapped glass-top table, and you have a very custom and designer look.
Ambella Home: Curved Contemporary
We ordered this sectional as a different take on updated Mid-Century Modern. The tufted seat and curved center piece stand out, and look great floating in a room. The tufted ottoman is done in a scored leather with acrylic legs. Acrylic was HUGE this market. Though it’s known to have a more modern look, accents of acrylic are a cool way to bring a touch of contemporary into any design style.
Vanguard Furniture: Flanking SofasWe also love the look of flanking sofas. In a large living space, it’s so nice to have 2 sofas, so the men in your life don’t fight about the “good seat” during football Saturdays. These two sofas are very different, yet their lines, colors, and styles work together: Skirted vs. legs, slipcovered vs. fully upholstered, tufted vs. plain. Note the acrylic ottoman leg again.
Be sure and stop by the showroom to see our new market finds arriving daily!

The Second Living Room: Chic Outdoor Spaces

Outdoor living spaces have been popular for decades, but the dressing of outdoor spaces is trending right now. From big to small, traditional to modern, outdoor spaces are beginning to merge with the interiors. Porches are being treated as another room in the house for morning coffee, dining, entertaining, or relaxing. Spaces in the yard are becoming more focal points for entertainment, with kitchens, fire pits, and additional sitting arrangements.

Furniture manufacturers are supporting this trend by supplying attractive yet durable outdoor furniture. Upholstery is covering furniture with slipcovers or cushions and accent pillows. Indoor/Outdoor fabrics have been designed to be comfortable to the touch while also growing to include bold, colorful patterns. Indoor/Outdoor rugs, along with accent furniture, and accessories, adorn the outdoors. Specialty lighting, such as unique pendants, can add an impact to your space. Below you can see various styles’ renditions of outdoor spaces to inspire your next outdoor design project!
