This is the third and final post of our Designer Series this week, featuring an interview with Emily Berg, Interior Designer for Synergy Design & Construction.
Today we focus on industry trends to keep an eye out for – we’d love to hear from you on trends you are embracing today in your home design project.
Q: What trends are you seeing now in projects?
A: In terms of style, we have seen several clients who are interested in a vintage or farmhouse style. After Brushed Nickel fixtures, the next most popular finish seems to be Oil-Rubbed Bronze.
Exposed Edison bulbs are also prevalent.
As far as lighting design, many clients love to see lighting (especially LED) in unique places — in tray ceiling soffits, under toekicks, even in drawers or under the kitchen sink!
Q: How you keep up with design trends – do you have favorite blogs, industry events, T.V. shows or magazines that you turn to?
A: Our vendors help us keep up to date by holding seminars that discuss the latest fixtures to pop up in the design and furniture shows across the country. Magazines such as Luxe and Home & Design also provide inspiration and follow the latest trends. For unique ideas and everyday inspiration, we also get a lot of ideas from images we see on Houzz and Pinterest.
Progress Lighting also stays current with trends we see on Houzz and Pinterest. Join us on our channels at http://www.houzz.com/pro/progressltg/__public and http://www.pinterest.com/progressltg/ to stay in touch!
