2012 Design Trends sharing

The design trends of 2012 offer innovations to your interior by combining ordinary creature comforts with luxurious materials and new liberating color schemes with unique décor that will make your great indoors really pop! Here’s the latest for 2012:

The Bold and the Beautiful

David Weekley Homes' professional Design Consultants will help you create your new home in your style.Paint colors take a bold turn in 2012! Don’t believe us, Pantone’s 2012 color of the year is Tangerine Tango. In addition, you may want to try glorious colors like emerald, regal plum, ruby, turquoise, golden yellow tones and exotic corals.

When Opposites Attract

Though these new and vibrant color tones may be too loud for some, don’t be afraid to mix them with shades from a more neutral color palette to create a whole new paint scheme. Try adding bold splashes of color with a luscious cream, comfortable brown or elegant grey.

It’s a Material World

This year, home decor is also getting a luxurious update. Take your home to the next level by layering silky fabrics or velvet on your sofa, accenting with vintage pieces, or go for the natural look with wood, stone or feathers.

Add Some Sparkle

When it comes to lighting, you don’t have to choose basic brushed nickel. Break the mold this year and pick something with pizzazz. In a subtly decorated room, a brightly colored lamp, sconce or chandelier can add that punch of color your room is missing.
This year is about understated luxury and being adventurous with the familiar, so don’t be afraid to bring in some new colors, textures and accent pieces. Happy decorating!

Come learn about
"The Geology of Dimensional Stone"
with our dynamic speaker! 

Join Dallas Design Community and Michael Anson, geologist and national accounts manager for DuPont, as he covers the origin and composition of each type of dimensional stone, and explains how these two factors determine the characteristics of each stone. In his presentation “The Geology of Dimensional Stone” he will discuss each type of stone in detail, how it is created and where it should (or should not) be used. The differences between how the stone industry labels a stone and how a geologist labels a stone, as well as some commonly held myths and misinformation will also be addressed.
