Obsessions: Natural elements, colorful prints & translucent accents
September has flown by and we are left with the hope that Fall weather isn’t far behind. What we do have are tons of new collections to fuel our latest obsessions. I love this time of year because inspiration is everywhere! Our favorite vendors are releasing their new Fall collections, new design houses are popping up on our radar and my now twice-yearly trip to High Point Market is coming up. I’d say there are plenty of things to be excited about this upcoming season.
So, even though many collections are still under wraps – the anticipation is killing me! – The Laura U Team and I have kept our eyes on the latest and greatest designs and collections over this past month. We’ve got some great finds to share!
“I just uncovered some fabulous – and intact – mosaic tile on the porch of my new home. It is one of the best discoveries yet at the house! So… I am now planning for the foyer right off of the porch and I couldn’t be more obsessed with the Conche Black Diamond tile by Arto. Plus, this great overall shot features the Pickets Charcoal Gray tile, which I’m dreaming of for my patio! Right off of this space, we will have gorgeous French Oak wide plank flooring by the renowned Schenck and Company – our go-to custom floor experts in Houston. They are natural, understated, and elegant”.
– Laura Umansky, President, and Creative Director
“I am currently obsessing over Sahco’s amazing collection of modern tiebacks by Ulf Moritz. They are jewelry for your drapery, and a great way to add glamour and sophistication to your interior. Several of my favorites include the Shade and Glorioso tiebacks, which have already found a home in a current project.”
– Shannon Smith, Senior Interior Designer
“This light switch from Forbes & Lomax’s Invisible Collection is just the most precious thing! I love that it takes away those unsightly light switches and adds a cute little decorative element in an unexpected place. Love the idea of installing this over a fun printed wallpaper. It is so cute, I’m OBSESSED!”
– Lexi Terry, Associate Designer
Bring on the patterns. Bring on the color.
“I love the bold print and fun colors that this Geometric Wallpaper collection offers! Plus, It’s small enough to not look too busy but bold enough to make an impact! I would love to use this in a playful space or behind a bookshelf.”
– Lexi Fink, Design Associate
“This line of fabrics that just dropped from Brentano, is my newest obsession! This collection has a variety of durable fabrics in tons of fun, bold and colorful prints. They’re going to work great in kid’s rooms or playrooms. Some of my favorite patterns are Quadrant (love a good plaid!) and Pandora because who doesn’t love a good cut velvet!”
-Krystin Westby-Cole, Design Associate
Even more to come …
These are some great finds, and I know our team can’t wait to incorporate some of these obsessions into our upcoming projects. We’ve found bits of everything this month – from the natural to the colorful, and even the transparent…I think there’s inspiration for everyone here!
What’s even better is there’s more to come. Next month is sure to bring tons of inspiration as more collections are announced. So be sure to check in next month for my favorite finds from HPMKT and to get the dish on what has us all obsessing in October!
