3 Home Decor Trend to Take Home from High Point Market

3 Home Decor Trends to take home from High Point Market — New England Nautical on @SavvyHome

I’m back from High Point Market! My brain (and my phone camera) are overflowing with products and inspiration. Here are three home decor trends that you should look out for this year.

3 Home Decor Trends to take home from High Point Market — New England Nautical on @SavvyHome

New England Nautical

To my delight, High Point was filled with nautical nods this year, and I don’t mean the kitch seaside decor (although there was some of that too). Coral and barnacle clusters filled up antique booths, collectors proudly displayed their collection of buoys, demijohns and nautical flags. Lighting was wrapped in rope, encrusted in seashells or topped with grasscloth lampshades. Even furniture was wrapped in grasscloth, rattan, rope, water hyacinth and other natural materials. Rugs and bedding were prominently blue & white or striped (or occasionally plaid) and many pieces of wood furniture were whitewashed. New England based companies like Dunes & Duchess and Oomph gave their colorful preppy twist on the style.

3 Home Decor Trends to take home from High Point Market — Equestrian Americana on @SavvyHome

Equestrian Lodge

Palecek was at the forefront of this Ralph Lauren-esque trend, but they weren’t the only ones. Furniture and accessories across the entire market were wrapped in tan leather and strapped with buckles. Cowhide and navajo prints graced the floors and furniture and mongolian lamb popped up on everything from stools to chairs and pillows. Think updated Colorado ranch.

3 Home Decor Trends to take home from High Point Market — African Safari on @SavvyHome

African Safari

2014 is the year of the antelope: benches, rugs, pillows… I hope the poor animal is not extinct because its skin popped up everywhere across the market. Hides off all kinds were very popular this year in fact, from zebra to tiger. The traditional kuba cloth was also prominent: whether in the form of pillows, upholstered benches or frames. There were lots of safari chairs,  petrified wood stools, antelope antlers (even used as sconce bases).

Were you at High Point this year? What did you post at the market this year? Answer in the comments.

Shop The Look: Jessica De Ruiter’s 1950s Home in Silverlake

Shop the Look: Jessica de Ruiter's 1950s Home in Silverlake — on @SavvyHome

“I love the way the layers of the house keep building to make a real home” — Jessica de Ruiter









Stylist Jessica de Ruiter and husband Jed Lind, designer at Commune Design, revamped a 1950s home in Silverlake, California for their family. The couple, originally from Toronto, embraced the indoor-outdoor mid-century boho style inherent to California. They filled the house with original modern classics: a Milo Baughman chair and a Paavo Tynell Pulley pendant — and finished the house with lots of textiles: vintage ikat and grain sack pillows, Moroccan and kilim rugs. They brightened up the neutral palette with colorful gallery walls and vintage kids toys.

The result is an easy-breezy and textured oasis that pays respect to the history of the house—where white Carrara marble meets panelled plywood. The house is like a step back in time that’s been updated for modern convenience and comfort.

I’m flying to High Point Market bright and early in the morning, so today I’m working around the clock to make sure all my work is done and everything is packed and ready before my 7am flight. These days it feels like all I do is work like a mad person, pack, travel, unpack, rinse, repeat. I’m certainly not complaining—there’s nothing I love more than visiting new places, meeting new people and trying new things, but this. girl. is. tired. I’m hoping to catch a break in November to get back on top of things. In the meantime, I’m really excited to see thousands of new home products over the weekend, so follow along on Instagram for all the scoops!
