No single color seems to have taken hold, according to Segal, but there is a growing preference for a rainbow of saturated hues rather than pale neutrals. Pogonitz agrees but stresses limiting bold color choices to a single room or two. Though they may be losing favorite now, neutrals still have their place, especially when patterns are small or paired with a texture, Segal says. And when the exact desired color cant be found, many manufacturers will make custom color papers. Oversized, bold geometrics and florals remain among the most popular newcomers overshadowing diminutive, sweet prints. Yet, a bold look requires some discretion. Barnett warns against using such patterns behind a television or on a wall that homeowners spend a lot of time facing directly.
Why its happening: After so much focus on clean, spare Scandinavian design, theres yearning for more warmth and comfort with natural touches. In fact, Miami-based designer Antony Chandler, president of Archiforma Group, thinks sitting in your living room should evoke the feeling of lying in a hammock under a great tree on a breezy summer day. To get the look, Chandler suggests prints and florals in natural-colored tones. Butcher block kitchen countertops and a mix of warmer natural materials such as wood, leather, silk, and stone will help capture the natural feel. Chicago designer Steve Kadlec suggests open grain oak cabinetry, metallic linen draperies, saddle leather, and woven cotton rugs. A warmer, more natural glow can also be illuminated through new LED lights, says Chicago designer Tom Segal, of Kaufman-Segal Design.
