Showroom Shots from DESIGN ADAC

This past month, we loaded up an SUV and took a drive down to Atlanta, home of the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center and their annual Design ADAC event that invites some of the best designers from around the country to debut their new lines and share their trade secrets. Here are the top trends we saw in the showrooms.

Baby Blues

Powder blue is the new neutral. This hue was everywhere we looked in Atlanta as a calming color that allows designers to anchor a room without succumbing to boring beige. Use it in bathrooms, bedrooms, kitchens and just about anywhere else for a fresh, crisp look.

Gold accents

A continuing trend from 2016, gold fixtures are still a timeless, luxe addition to any room. From lighting to hardware, accessorize your room with gold like you accessorize your outfit: keep it simple and understated.

All Velvet Everything

Whoever said velvet had to be sad and frumpy? Velvet upholstery is making a contemporary comeback and giving basic rooms a luxurious feel that's soft to the touch but durable too. This chair combines the trendy baby blues and brassy gold accents to embody everything we saw at Design ADAC!

Hi everyone,

The Antiques & Garden Show of Nashville is always a treat for us designers! We spent hours perusing the antiques and horticultural items there from all over the country this past weekend and even got a glimpse of Nate Berkus at his keynote lecture. How do you incorporate antiques into your home design?
