1. Deep Toned Walls
If our clients jump at the idea, a design go-to for House of Nomad is a deep-toned wall. Painting a wall something fun and with a deep hue not only adds warmth and is on-trend — but it brings instant character to the space. The above shot comes from this week’s install in a historic house in Dilworth and the Naval paint by Sherwin Williams chosen by our client brought deep moodiness to their bar area. The throw pillow draws in another fall trend: gold.
We’ve also used Inchyra Blue by Farrow & Ball and had great success with this gorgeous paint in a Myers Park dining space. This project combined family heirloom pieces, passed down for generations, with some new light fixtures and the deep-toned walls. And for our upcoming projects, Farrow & Ball released nine new fall colors that we’re dying to use!
2. Jet Black, even in the kitchen
This is a trend we’re thrilled about because we’re lovers of all things jet black. Currently, we’re in the middle of a design process for a modern home in Quail Hollow. According to trends (and our happy client) their dining space is so in — a really modern black dining table and black dining chairs. Their kitchen is a beautiful contrast with all-white lacquer and hardware-less cabinetry. It’s so chic.
3. Graphic Prints
At High Point Market, our team saw space after piece that pulled at this fun vibe — from black and white large-scale graphic prints to this bold wallpaper. For a Myers Park project, we recently selected this gorgeous black and white tile for a custom bar.
4. Large-scale Florals
Romantic and curious, florals of all kinds are in — including large-scale — and what some are calling “Grandma chic.” A favorite floral we’ve used lately is an Anthropologie mural we used to create a custom wall art by adding a border of deep-green paint.
5. Modern Neutrals
We’re all about this — a call back to natural spaces by combining wood grains, rattan, camel, gold and even grays. We love to layer variety of wood tones and textures to bring warmth to our spaces — like this set of rattan light fixtures in a client’s kitchen (in process!) in Dilworth.
6. Curves and Arches
Another stand-out from High Point Market is curves — and arches — in furniture and upholstery. The rounded edges of these pieces provide immediate interest and perhaps even a little bit of sexy danger to the designs. The curves range from sofas and chairs to tables and consoles. We’re loving the curvy pieces by Consort!
