Flower Power

The trend for floral wall coverings with an Asian attitude is in gorgeous effect in this feminine living room from Beth Webb Interiors. Fresh flowers and complementary Asian vases add to the effect. Florals are a top trend at the 2018 Southeastern Designer Showhouse and Gardensfrom Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles magazine.

Glass Art

Gorgeous translucent glass, often in pastel colors, was a big theme at this year’s Southeastern Designer Showhouse and Gardens from Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles magazine on view through May 13. The trend for light, airy details and a Seventies-meets-Art Deco vibe played out beautifully in this glam study from R Hughes.

Pile High With Glamour

Glass elements piled on for optimum glamor and their lovely reflective properties translate to a trend you can easily introduce into your home. A portion of the wall is mirrored, but even the addition of glass accessories on a table or dresser can achieve this light, elegant effect. The Old Hollywood feel of this room is amplified with the palm-shaped dining room table with glass top and a subtle, almost shadow-effect custom mural in this stunning dining room from Philip Sides Interior Design. More sugary pastels add to the sumptuous mood.

Call of the Wild

Talk about exotic refinement. This master suite from Mathews Furniture + Design demonstrates the very cutting edge trend for blending feminine, jewel-tone details like this purple-accented Oriental rug and amethyst bowl with cheeky exotic touches like the ceramic elephant table, leopard pillows and Jungalow-worthy white palm accent to really rev up the drama.

Snake Charmer

Another example of the animal (and insect) themes and decorative flourishes that are making this such an interesting decorating moment, an ethereal snake-head table works wonderfully next to a more substantial Asian stool that shows off the playful global mix currently defining modern design. These heavy, ebony pieces work well in a room where bright whites and soft sands create balance.
