Sherwin Williams Stir Magazine 2015 Color Forecast

Sherwin Williams is one of the top interior and exterior paint color powerhouses. I know we are all familiar with their paints and use/have used them.  I spec their paint for many of my houses.  I’m not sure if you are familiar with their magazine, Stir.  Stir is a magazine that ‘connects color and cutting edge design’.   They have actually featured one of my projects in an article, Megawatt Metallics.  As many of you know that I love to share with you the Pantone color trends, but today I wanted to share with you Sherwin Williams Stir Magazine 2015 Color Forecast.

Beautiful Beds

One of a bedroom’s main focal point when you walk in is the bed.  So your bed needs to be a statement piece.  There is nothing like a gorgeous bed that is inviting and that calls out to you to come lie in it.  The way a bed looks is the determining factor when purchasing.  There are many beautiful beds to choose from as well as determining factors for selection.  Remember that beds are not only a piece of furniture that just looks pretty but is actually a task piece-comfort and quality are key.

Shape, size, & material are all design decisions that are factors in bed frame selection.  Bed and headboard materials are a personal selection; many people prefer a soft headboard so they do not have to put pillows between themselves & the actual headboard when sitting up in bed.  But others prefer not to have fabric touching their head.

Get Spotted: Spotted Prints in Interiors

There are always trends that come and go.  Spotted prints in interior design has never gone out of style.  There are different styles and sizes these spots come in.  When we think of spotted prints we tend to think of polka dots, but there are also animal prints that come to mind–dalmatian print.

Polka dots have come a long way from the days of our parents.  We are seeing more modern approaches to these simple circles.  Bolder, larger prints are being used as well as more oblong or oval shapes.  They are a fun, laid back look.  We most commonly see the print in black and white, but these fun prints do come in other colors.  If you are unsure about using this quirky print, use it sparingly, such as on a pillow or in a print.
