A Few High Point COLOR Trends From Friends

A huge event occurred last week known in the design world simply as High Point. Twice a year, Designers from all over the country descend on High Point, NC  to view the hottest new trends in furniture and design. Although I did not attend I felt like I was there last week because I was following a few of my friends who were designated ” Style Spotters” for Pinterest.

When a Pinterest Style Spotter saw an item they thought was worth noting they would “pin” the item to their style board.  I  in turn would repin those items I wanted to share with my Pinterest followers.

Here are a few of the trends relating to my favorite subject, Color, seen at High Point from a few of my Style Spotter friends.

Bright saturated Color has been huge in 2012 and Emerald Green is trending as one of the hottest colors going into 2013.

Lisa Mende spotted this gorgeous Louis 16th chair covered with Robert Allen malachite emerald green fabric in the Wesley show room.

Gold is also going to big in 2013.  Stacy Naquin spotted this ebony stained console table by Global Views with beautiful Gold detailing and coordinating Black and Gold lamps. Don’t you just love those gold lamp shades? Also, Gray, Yellow and Cream continues to be a popular color pallet.

as well as this gold leaf mirror from Chelsea House. Wouldn’t this make a beautiful statement in a front entrance?

Monoco Blue has been rumored to be Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2013 but the official color will not be announced until early December. Even so, deep dark blues are a huge trend in both fashion and at High Point for 2013. Lisa Mende spotted this gorgeous dark Blue lacquered chest from Bungalow5.

Lastly, according to Style Spotter Traci Zeller,  “Plum, purple, violet, lavender – whatever you want to call it – is hot, hot, hot … in every shade and hue”. She spotted this gorgeous plum color leather chair from HGTV’s new furniture line which she predicts will be a huge hit.

    My favorite piece kept changing as I was reading! Loooove the blue chest and purple chair! Not to crazy about gold. And I love putting gray, yellow and cream together. So pretty! I never thought I would like the Emerald Green- but it is beautiful in these pieces!

    I’m super excited by the plum/purple prediction. Love that chair Traci spotted, and I’m all over a little of that colour being back on the inside!

    I’m loving the green and gold but the blues are also working for me!! If only I could instantly change my house up to reflect that!
