Homes are now primary work spaces, not secondary. Therefore, we need to adjust for the increased use. They also require individual work spaces for all members of the household, so no longer is it one formal home study. As its use is more frequent, the office is also getting oriented to main views.

THE NEW NUDE
We are finally getting away from nude living spaces that are limited to a sea of shades of gray. Now, we’re introducing pops of color in blush, peach, mint, gold, black and white that are much more interesting and less monochromatic. While this trend was popular living through the pandemic, clients are embracing color again, which I believe serves as a gentle reminder that life is precious so we should live it out loud.

We always love a good neutral environment, but are embracing more color this year in rich and subtle tones. Wallpaper, fabrics, cabinetry and paint are going deeper than we have been using in the past. Committing to color is exciting and pairs well with mixing and matching patterns and textures.
