Las Vegas Market 2015 has been over for nearly two weeks.  I am still buzzing from what furnitures’s “fashion week” predicts will be the looks to have in your home furnishings.  Las Vegas Market 2015  had three themes that played throughout the show:   Livable Luxury, Pantone Color of the Year – Marsala and the Modern Boutique.

What could be more luxurious than brassy metals? Metals play a big part to warm up vibrant monochromatic color schemes.  There is a mix of brass and silver metals.  I love these almost child like sculptures of elephants and the octopus orb shown here from Dwell Studios.

 Modern Boutique  

Think Traditional + Modern (even primitive) furnishings. This is definitely keeping with our current obsession with anything vintage.  Pillows and accessories at this winter’s Las Vega Market also balanced luxury with a softer range of pastels.  Soft, livable and touchable vignettes were featured in some rooms inviting you to come on in and relax.  The theme was not exactly Mid Century Modern as we have seen so much of lately, but more homespun.

 And trending everywhere were nail heads on chairs, headboards, pillows, you name it.   A nod to the great outdoors showed up with not only the equestrian theme like Eastern Accent’s Aiden Collection, but also a fusion of modern and primitive designs.


This tasteful, but controversial hue, was sprinkled throughout furniture displays.  As Pantone’s 2015 Color of the Year,  the color works with warmer metals, the soft pastels of the decade, and neutrals.  Marsala is a perfect backdrop and accent color to give a room some vibrancy.

Vibrant monochromatic color schemes will incorporate items like this purple Murano style glass chandelier from DRG Lighting.  This pop of color is just what’s need with our current beige & gray neutral color palettes.
