Bring the outdoors indoors with the season’s fresh colors and organic textures
Pay no attention to the naysayers predicting a dark future — things have never looked so bright. We’re not talking about the price of gas or politics, of course, but the colors of the season. Spring and summer of 2008 will be dominated by the freshest, most vibrant yellows and oranges, sky-blues and mossy-greens.
And the mossiness is carried over in textures, too. The green movement has taken root (literally) with an emphasis on natural fabrics and organic finishes this year.
We polled the inventories of several area home furnishing retailers — Jones Walker, Aneita Fern, Zuri, West Elm and Haven — and put together a room that’s looking so bright, you gotta wear shades.
