best interior design firms in Asheville

Déjà vu Design Trends

To become one of the best interior design firms in Asheville requires a dedicated level of expertise as well as an unmistakable sense of style. You can’t just rest on your laurels, however, if you want to maintain your position as one of the best interior designers in Asheville. 

At Stratton Design Group, we are lighting as well as interiors specialists, so we have to keep up with not only the latest trends in design but also the newest advances in technology.

Sometimes, though, keeping up with what’s new means looking back in time. That has certainly been the case with the revival of Mid-Century Modern design trends, which we have seen in recent years.

According to the folks at HGTV, ’80s style is now among the decorating trends that are making a comeback. “The ’80s are coming back, but in a more modern way,” designer Kerra Michele of Kerra Michele Interiors in the nation’s capital told HGTV. “It’s playful without being tacky.”

According to HGTV, the hallmarks of the look that was popular in the 1980s that are being revamped for modern tastes include, but are not limited to: 

  • A palette that mixes neon and pastel shades
  • The use of bold graphic prints
  • Tassels and fringe
  • Rounded furniture
  • Bleached wood
  • Rattan
  • Textured wallpaper

It was Mark Twain, writing in Mark Twain’s Own Autobiography: The Chapters from the North American Review, who said, “There is no such thing as a new idea. It is impossible. We simply take a lot of old ideas and put them into a sort of mental kaleidoscope. We give them a turn and they make new and curious combinations. We keep on turning and making new combinations indefinitely; but they are the same old pieces of colored glass that have been in use through all the ages.”

You can take one or more elements of ‘80s style and incorporate it into a design for your home in Asheville. The interior designers at Stratton Design Group, one of the most sought-after interior design firms in Asheville, can show you how. Contact us for more information.
