HD Expo

It’s a quick 1-hour flight from San Diego to Vegas Baby so I hopped on a plane to walk the HD Expo one day last week. This is a trade show for “the trade” who are specifying for the hospitality industry. Heavy focus on the latest fabrics, wall coverings, formed and patterned panels, custom rugs, tiles and architectural glass, as well as fluffy bathrobes and nice smelling “amenities” lines. I would have to say that the “theme” that I came away with was rich, saturated colors and fabrics and wall coverings with a decidedly sculptural quality. I also noticed a lot of things that seemed laser cut and with a very “stencil-y” look to them. I’m liking that!


These photos are from some awesome print material that Panaz had laid out and feature their upcoming new fabric releases. Can you imagine how nice this sofa would feel to lay on?


I am noticing that the photo on the left/above is pretty close to the color scheme I want to do in my new office. (See In a Colorful Mood). AND it just so happens that we have some really nice big flower stencils in the Royal Design Studio line. Add a nice, stylized vine and viola!
