Winter Market 2011: Color and Pattern in Decoration

Today I attended a discussion at Design Center of the Americas hosted by Verdana. Verdana's Senior Style Editor Eugenia Santiesteban Soto led a panel including one of my favorite interior designers Celerie Kemble, renowned fashion and home furnishings designer Trina Turk, author and design connoisseur India Hicks and interior designer Gene Meyer. They each spoke about colors and patterns in interiors and how it has impacted their work.

Trina Turk launched her line of new indoor/outdoor fabrics for Schumacher. The fabrics are vibrant, geometric and tropical with natural motifs. Turk said much of her inspiration came from landscapes found in California. The color palette is influenced by her resort collection and features beautiful turquoises, watermelon, citron and marine paired with neutrals and charcoal.

Celerie Kemble is an extremely talented and well-known interior designer who I have been following for years. I can relate to her as we were both born to interior designer mothers and are both from South Florida. Much of my design inspiration comes from her work, and I was thrilled to meet her. Celerie will launch a new book that will debut later this year; she will discuss black and white interiors.
