Trend Forecast from Texas’ HGTV Smart Home!

Wow!  What a privilege it was to tour the HGTV Smart Home in Roanoke, Texas.  There were lots of fascinating design choices in the home; they showed trends I expect to see rising in popularity over the next few years.  Here are a few:

Dark walls.  If the walls aren’t white, they will be deep shades of blue, charcoal or black.

Light floors.  We have been in medium to dark hardwoods for quite sometime, so it is no wonder that the pendulum is moving back to lighter flooring.

Asymmetry and unexpected elements galore!

Blend of finishes. In the modern master bedroom, the medieval style on the sconces was a surprise!  This was quite a contrast from the modern fixtures in other areas of the house. There are no rules about mixing metal finishes either!
