This past Saturday I was thrilled to be able to attend the annual Tribeza Interiors Tour, especially since Elizabeth’s gorgeous home was just featured in their latest issue. The tour comprised of eight amazing homes around Austin, all of which had a great mix of aspirational and accessible decor. Each space had a unique style, from glamorous to casual, and from modern to traditional. There were some unifying trends, however, and they were all gorgeous enough for any style of decorator to get behind.
Wall coverings are making a huge comeback right now. Gone are the days of tacky borders and bland stripes; this generation of wallpaper is chic as can be. From masculine charcoal grasscloth in an office to a rainbow of Penguin Classics in a powder room, each home showed its own unique spin on dressed up walls.
Beautifully patterned tile was the second standout trend this year, whether found on bathroom floors, stair risers, or kitchen backsplashes (just check out the incredible mirrored detail in the second photo). Each of these tiled spaces felt exotic, like I was suddenly transported to a fabulous Greek hotel. Couldn’t we all use that feeling when we go to brush our teeth in the morning?
Lastly, it comes as no surprise that vintage rugs were always underfoot. Traditional patterns in gorgeous colors made these rooms feel vibrant and timeless. If only every designer would reveal his or her sources!
