By Mia Bolaris-Forget

Looking around our home and at the interior of the new mega mansions, my husband and I decided that it was time to make some upgrades to our home. And, I’m just the type of individual that despite not being a big fan of change, and who has maintained a similar style since I first developed my sense of style, eagerly looks forward to changing things up around the house.

I look forward to changing up the curtains, bed sheets, and décor according to season and to occasionally adding new accoutrements to enhance our environment. And the trends for 2007 are geared toward mass appeal for every taste.

1. Style in Bloom: Taking the lead from nature. From floral patterns to soft palettes found in nature, au naturale is this year’s timeliest trend.

2. Rustic Appeal: A focus on heritage and also items made from indigenous materials are all the rage.

3. Gothic Glam: A hint of punk (from year’s gone by) and 18th century chic are redefining bold and beautiful.

4. Man-Fatale: This look gets its inspiration from most things masculine. From geometric prints to tobacco and whiskey inspired hues, it’s all about rugged elegance.

5. Vintage Revival: Taking a cue from the 1920s, 30s and 40s, pastel palettes are defining subtle modern sophistication.

6. African Inspiration: Combining culture and couture these bold and vibrant colors and designs are the latest in cultural couture.

7. Asian Infusion: From food to fashion and now home furnishing the tastes of the orient taking designs by storm.

8. California Cool: These surfside designs are ideal for whetting almost any appetite that partial to a relaxed design.

9. Bare Essentials: This minimalist approach to home design looks almost undecorated and is all about personal style that doesn’t look planned. It’s all about a less is more approach, almost like a city oft, with a quiet palette paired with design restrain and close attention to proportion and detail.
