The beauty of current interior design is in the
many options available. Global sourcing is not
only easy to access but also expected, resulting
in using interesting materials and objects. But
for me, the most important tip I can give is
individualization. Everyone should design their
home in a way that will nourish them and will
last for a long time.
• Think green: No, not the color. I’m
talking about the idea. The green movement
has helped consumers analyze the sourcing of
raw materials, the health impact of finished
products and the longevity of finished materials.
• Think simple: Even though we are
seeing multi-color patterns in fabrics, home
furnishings showrooms are full of simplicity.
Strong contrast in colors is being used without
multi-color. This can be achieved with black
and white or softer beige and a darker tone of
brown. Blues and blue greens are still strong.
• Think organic: Consumers continue to
be drawn to use natural products. We’re also
seeing plenty of man-made materials such
as porcelain tile, nylon carpets or composite
countertops that are well-made and simulate the
natural products, creating better performance.

Looking for a little bungalow to shack
up in on your jaunts to the West Coast?
How about the legendary Beverly House,
former home of William Randolph
Hearst — and honeymoon destination
for John & Jackie Kennedy.
We’re wondering if buying this San
Francisco home housed in a former
church is a recipe for good or bad
karma? Then again, with 17,000
square feet of historic, luxury living
space, we might not care.
Maybe you should invest in Silo
Home. This luxury estate is almost
entirely underground, housed inside
a former nuclear missile silo. Oh,
my. Well, to that we say: Bring it on,
2012. Give it your best shot!
