From the Ed­i­tors

Décor - - Contents -

There are some trends we are happy to rel­e­gate to the his­tory books: bath­room car­pet­ing, avo­cado-color ap­pli­ances, glass-block win­dows. But there are many more we can’t wait to wel­come for a sec­ond act. We’re fas­ci­nated by how trends from the past are rein­tro­duced in fresh and un­ex­pected ways. One of our fa­vorite ex­am­ples is the resur­gence of flo­rals as a ro­man­tic, col­or­ful coun­ter­point to to­day’s pop­u­lar monochro­matic schemes. There’s some­thing won­der­fully nos­tal­gic about these na­turein­spired de­signs, which bring dec­o­ra­tive flour­ish to fur­ni­ture, light­ing, rugs, and din­ner­ware. When paired with high-con­trast, geo­met­ric pat­terns, the re­sults are even more breath­tak­ing. We take a closer look in “Botan­i­cals in Bloom,” page 6.

This is­sue, we also in­tro­duce you to tal­ented de­sign­ers who are chang­ing the way we think about dé­cor. In Texas, Janet

Gust il­lus­trates her pas­sion for mix­ing old-world forms with vivid pat­terns (“Modern Merger,” left and page 76); in Florida, Krista Wat­ter­worth Al­ter­man puts art at the fore­front of an airy, con­tem­po­rary de­sign (“Artis­tic Ex­pres­sion,” page 68); and in Cal­i­for­nia, Ken­dall Wilkin­son rewrites the rule book with her bold ren­o­va­tion of a 1902 home (“Wel­come Home,” page 32).

Style is con­stantly evolv­ing. We revel in the thrill of keep­ing up. Wel­come to DŽ­cor.
