New Trends and Styles From High Point


As an interior designer/decorator  in Mississauga/ Oakville Jackie Connolly of Parsons Interiors got the opportunity to attend some really interesting trends and style events put on by local suppliers, manufacturing and retail businesses in Oakville, Mississauga and Burlington.

I had the opperunaty to attend a few this month, here is few outlines on what’s hot in the next few years.

Two of my semners were with one of the  top designers, Jane Lockhart, who’s well known and extremely talented.  She presented some spring design tips and her new line Jane by Jane Lockhart which will be available at some retail stores and designers. Some of the design tips shared were that we will be seeing a lot of colour and pattern. She talked about graphics, geometric, and the all time favourite stripes. You will also see a lot of furniture with the nail head treatment and tufting and contrast piping, a very Coco Chanel look  and once again yellow metal is showing up as in brass and copper. If you haven’t watched mad man, please do it. The decor, the clothes, and lets not forget the hair, are all coming back. The only think thats not is the smoking. As for colour, there is an abundance with Pantonne’s Colour of the Year being Emerald Green leading the way, you will also be seeing lots of oranges, yellows and blues being shown as colours for 2013 and 2014.  One can start small with the accessories to add colour to our neutral larger pieces, as you get brave you can move to larger pieces.


We also see mirrored case goods and star bust mirrors which really help to expand a space and add some great bling to the design, it’s all about the bling this trend. Parsons Interiors is showcasing some beautiful lamps with diamond studs, come in for a visit.

We at  Parsons Interiors selected mostly grey and light neutral pieces, which I am personally fond of, but there is a myriad of colourful and patterned fabrics available to have smaller custom pieces created to work with your neutrals. If you are ready to go full out of your comfort zone the pieces below are in our showroom can definitely be fabricated in a bright and colourful pattern!

Lots of nailhead trim and tufting as seen below… The colour we are hearing about will be seen in accessories for many people.
