Trend Report 2022

Let’s begin the new year with the Places In The Home Trend Report 2022- a window into what interior design and decor trends will be the cat’s pajamas in the months to come.

Trend Report 2022

What’s on trend is what appeals to your gorgeous sense of style is my motto, but I do enjoy studying the inside scoop of the trend report forecast.

Snowy Morning by Andrew Wyeth (1947)

Winter has come to call, and cozy answers back nestle in and stay awhile.

Freshening up your core decorating style for a long winter’s nap, the slow pace associated with this baby, it’s cold outside time of year, further puts style to sight.

Rooted in  creating an atmosphere of warmth with a cozy and comfortable winter ambiance, lusciously thick throws, candles filling house and home with warmth, flicker and fragrance, and layers and levels of lighting build and balance the gray doldrums associated with wintertime.

Texture

pink-paneling

Mallory Mathison Design

Texture is beneficial to tactile and visual appeal.

Color absorbs light and distributes the warms and cools throughout a space.

Texture exudes warmth and invites cozy to the party.

Woven.

Sisal.

Plush.

Bouclé.

Furniture, fabric, upholstery, shades, rugs, throw pillows- texture will be big in 2022.

Antiques once again make the list.

Timeless in presence and provenance, antique pieces lend a quality to most design styles as a lone focal point accent or anchor style of the space.

Antique pieces play the room beautifully as well as complementing other design styles.

Provenance tells the story of premier craftmanship and sustainability while finishes and details create visual interest.

As far as I’m concerned the addition of an antique piece or two to your design and decor is always on trend.

1970s Style

Being a child of this swingin’ decade finds me appreciating the design trends of the day that captured the eye of decoristas and fashionistas alike.

Everything old is new again to some extent, so why not approach this trend with whimsical fancy?

Shannon Claire Interiors

Well, what do you think about these trend report 2022 projections?

A mad dash to home decor sources of choice is not exactly my new year, new style first priority, opting instead to first take an inventory of the accents and accessories presently in stock at Places In The Home and editing from within.

Believe me when I tell you how visually appealing and decoratively surprising the result is with one or more edits and placement adjustments.

Affordable, sustainable, and a fantastic way to spend a winter afternoon indoors.

Truer words, Mr. Morris.

Beauty is in the eye and the personal design style of the beholder, never failing to be on trend.

Homey Seasonal Decor Finds

Happy first day of fall, fellow fall loving friends!  Along with the elation over fall’s arrival, the inspiration it offers, and the seasonal colors on parade fascination associated with the third season, homey seasonal decor finds in rich hues and flavorful tastes frame this picture perfect season.

fall-2021-inspiration

The excitement surrounding the first day of fall compares to Christmas day in my book.

I’m selecting songs for a fall into autumn playlist, and the big blue gumbo pot is ready for the c’est si bon celebration of the season and its cornucopia of seasonings.

Wood Cake Stand - Hearth & Hand

Wood Cake Stand – Hearth & Hand with Magnolia

I can’t locate a recipe for pecan pie from Mr. Robinson, but I use the  Homemade Pecan Pie recipe from Karo Syrup, so classic it is.

Homemade Pecan Pie

Ingredients

1 cup Karo® Light OR Dark Corn Syrup

3 eggs

1 cup sugar

2 tablespoons butter melted

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1-½ cups (6 ounces) pecans

1 (9-inch) unbaked OR frozen deep-dish pie crust

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Mix corn syrup, eggs, sugar, butter and vanilla using a spoon.  Stir in pecans.  Pour filling into pie crust.

Bake on center rack of oven for 60 to 70 minutes (see tips for doneness, below).  Cool for 2 hours on wire rack before serving.

Place cookie sheet in oven and preheat oven as directed. Pour filling into frozen crust and bake on preheated cookie sheet.

High Altitude Adjustments: Reduce sugar to 2/3 cup and increase butter to 3 tablespoons.  Reduce oven temperature to 325°F.

Whipped Maple Pie

Ingredients

1 deep dish pie crust

1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) vanilla instant pudding

1½ cup cold milk

½ cup pure maple syrup

1 tsp. maple flavoring

1  container (8 oz.) thawed whipped topping

nutmeg for dusting

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°F.  Remove frozen pie crust from package and allow to thaw for 20  minutes.

Using a fork, prick the bottom and sides of the pie crust with to help reduce shrinkage and bubbling.  To ensure the crust bakes off properly, place an empty pie pan the same size inside the crust.

Place pie crust on baking sheet and bake on lower oven rack for 12-15 minutes, allowing to cool once removed from oven.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together instant pudding and milk until firm.  Add maple syrup and maple flavoring; mix well.  Fold in whipped topping; mix until incorporated.

Grab a jar, tumbler, or goblet and working in layers begin with crushed cookies (vanilla wafers, gingersnaps, graham crackers- all delicious choices).

Next, add a generous tablespoon of the maple pudding mixture.

Repeat with another layer of crushed cookies and complete the dish with a final addition of the maple pudding mixture.

Top with a dollop of whipped topping, a drizzle of pure maple syrup, and walnuts or fresh Louisiana pecans.

The delicious proof is in the pudding.

That and streaming The French Chef with Julia Child featuring three French favorites:

Tarte aux Pommes Classique
Tarte des Demoiselles
Tarte Tartin starring apples, cinnamon, and butter- the fall baking trinity.

red-fall-apples (2)

Julia Child is a classic, her personality endearing, and her recipes favorites in the Places In The Home test kitchen.

Between the show, recipes, and hint of crisp in the air I’m inspired to add her Tarte aux Pommes to my must make for fall recipe file.

Tarte aux Pommes

Ingredients

10-inch partially cooked pastry shell

4 pounds cooking apples

1 teaspoon lemon juice

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1/3  cup apricot jam/preserves

1/3  cup Calvados, rum or cognac (or 1 tablespoon vanilla)

2/3  cup granulated sugar for topping

3 tablespoons butter

½ teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

Preheat oven to 375F. Quarter, core, and peel the apples. Cut enough to make 3 cups into 1/8-inch lengthwise slices and toss them in a bowl with the lemon juice and sugar.  Reserve them for the top of the tart.

Cut the rest of the apples into rough slices.  You should have about 8 cups. Place in a pan and cook over low heat for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender.

Beat in apricot jam, Calvados, sugar, butter, and cinnamon.  Raise heat and boil, stirring, until applesauce is thick enough to hold in a mass in the spoon.

Spread the applesauce in the pastry shell.  Cover with a neat, closely overlapping layer of sliced apples arranged in concentric circles.

Bake in upper third of preheated oven for about 30 minutes, or until the apples have browned lightly and are tender.  Slide the tart onto a serving dish and paint over it with a light coating of apricot glaze. Serve warm or cold with whipping cream or a scoop of ice cream.

Apricot Glaze

½ cup apricot preserves, forced through a sieve

2 tablespoons granulated sugar

Stir the strained apricot preserves and sugar over moderately high heat until thick enough to coat the spoon with a light film, and the last drops are sticky as they fall from the spoon (225-228 degrees on a candy thermometer).  Do not boil past this point or the glaze will become brittle as it cools.

Apply the glaze while it is still warm. Unused glaze will keep indefinitely in a screw-top jar.

You put the flowers in the vase that you bought today
Staring at the fire for hours and hours while I listen to you
Play your love songs all night long for me, only for me
Come to me now and rest your head for just five minutes,
everything is good
Such a cozy room, the windows are illuminated by the
Sunshine through them, fiery gems for you, only for you
Our house is a very, very, very fine house with two cats in the yard
Life used to be so hard
Now everything is easy ’cause of you
And our la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

Digging The Pig Kitchen Decor

I’m really digging the pig kitchen decor of late.  As time is on my side in today’s world of thinking twice about venturing out if it’s not necessarily a necessity, it leaves me unhurried time to explore new things out there in internet land.

Pig Head Wall Mount

Pig Head Wall Mount

Last week I shared with the Places In The Home Facebook page followers a new page I’ve started to follow, Cooking with Brenda Gantt.

Miss Brenda cooks up Southern favorites with her own unique flavor of the South.

Homemade buttermilk biscuits.

Chicken and dumplings.

Boston butts.

Marinated vegetable salad.

Hot water cornbread.

Orange pineapple ice cream.

Candied sweet potatoes.

To quote Brenda, “Its gonna be good y’all!”

And it was!

Brenda shops the local farmers market, Wingard’s Produce, and a Southern staple of grocery store traditions, Piggly Wiggly aka The Pig for fresh fruits, vegetables and meats.

I get the biggest kick out watching Brenda’s farm to table videos complete with antique and vintage wares, no nonsense tips and tidbits, and a cooking show and tell of people seen and items purchased on her trips to The Pig.

Pig kitchen decor comes in variety of styles ranging from I ♥ country French to vintage whimsy to farmhouse chic.

Avoiding decor items that tend to be too trendy by opting for those that have staying power such as classic form, good bones, and clean lines promotes a stylish result and keeps the what in the world was I thinking when I bought this regret at bay.

Home Decor Inspired By The Oscars

Motion picture award season comes to a glorious golden crescendo Sunday, April 25th with the broadcast of the 93rd Academy Awards.

Hollywood glitz and glamour arrives in regal manner on Oscars Sunday to celebrate Hollywood artistry.

The Dolby Theater The Dolby Theater

Actors, artists, producers, directors, set designers and their memorable movie sets, locations, sound, and scores that produce legendary moments in film will capture the evening.

“I live for old movies. You can learn all about decorating, table manners, chic dressing, and stylish living from old black-and-white films!”

— Hutton Wilkinson

I love the design and decor aspects and intrigue of the Hollywood motion picture, and the glamour of Oscars stage decor.

This video from Architectural Digest highlights the best Oscars stage decor of all time.

Town & Country Magazine takes us back to what the Oscars looked like through the years.

On the Monday morning after the Oscars night before, the buzz will build around talented fashion and decor designers who will translate Oscars best to accessories, accents, and home decor inspired by the Oscars.

Salutes to the splendor of classic Hollywood, today’s pop culture, red carpet fashions, costume design, and visually impressive cinematic color palettes serve as an artist’s muse in the design concept of accessories, accents, and home decor inspired by the Oscars.

Coastal Home Decor Accents and Accessories

Thanks goes out to the genius that is Google maps street view for allowing me to cruise up and down a scenic beach highway anytime I want.

It may not be the same as actually being there in person, but it is a fun in the sun way to satisfy your coastal curiosity.

White sandy beaches and deep blue waters bookended by amazing seaside architecture and interiors is an excellent source of inspiration and ideas for sourcing coastal home decor accents and accessories.

Another source of coastal inspiration comes from resort web and social sites.

“Palm trees and views I can’t believe
Why would I ever want to leave?”

Speaking of Jimmy Buffet, I took a gander at the room types at Margaritaville Resort Gatlinburg.

The casual with an island edge decor and coastal home decor accents and accessories decorating Jimmy’s Hideaway epitomize coastal casual.

Speaking of The Golden Girls, how cute is this Golden Girls living room serving tray!

My aunt lives on the east coast of Florida, and her “Florida room” is furnished in super chic coastal accents and a fabulous suite of vintage rattan furniture she bought the first year she lived in Florida (1975).

She searched consignment shops and estate sales up and down the Florida coast for a set in good condition with a great price tag.  

Patience paid off, and she hit coastal home decor accents gold seven months into the hunt.

The set still makes a statement, and most certainly qualifies as an investment piece.

Coastal home decor furnishings rich in sea escape colors, textures and patterns reminiscent of the coast and its landscape, skies, and waters inspire the coastal color palette, casual elegance, and seaside sophistication.

Since I previously referenced Margaritaville and it’s coming up on five o’clock somewhere, let’s take a look at the recipe for Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville Perfect Margarita.

Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville Perfect Margarita

Ingredients

2 ounces gold tequila (Cuervo 1800)

½ ounce tequila (Cuervo white)

½ ounce triple sec (Bols)

1 splash orange Curacao (Bols)

1 ¼ ounces Rose’s Lime Juice

Crushed ice

Juice of 3 lime wedges

Directions

Fill a shaker with ice and add everything but the lime wedges.
Squeeze in the juice from 2 of the lime wedges and shake very well until beads form on the outside of the shaker.

Rim only the outside edge of the margarita glass with lime and twist it around in a saucer of coarse salt (see my page on how to rim a cocktail glass).

Fill the glass about halfway with crushed ice and strain the mixture into it.
Squeeze the last lime wedge on top and drop it in.
