Top 4 Interior Design Trends for Fall 2022

Posted by: Sherry Davidson in News, Tips
 

Every home has a unique flare and style that showcases the personality of those who live in it. However, most are influenced and inspired by the latest interior design trends for the season to keep their home fresh and updated. Enjoy a round-up of some of the design elements you will see this fall.

Statement Marble 

Crisp white marble has been a beloved style choice for the past few years, however, a new marble is making its way into the design world. You will soon see warm-toned marble take a front seat. The rich rust and sandy tones are a natural compliment for fall color palettes and bring a cozy warmth to interior design. Add this new look to your home by incorporating warm marble into the accent pieces in your home.

Dark Wood Details

In the spirit of warming up your home, designers are utilizing dark wood tones to compliment interior spaces. Moody wood tones can easily be integrated into your home decor through side tables and chairs or showcased while entertaining by using wood serving boards and bowls. The contrast between these deep wood tones and the light wood we have been seeing brings dimension and intrigue to your space.  

Sculpture Art 

While traditional framed prints and paintings will never go out of style, a new accent is taking the design world by storm: sculpture art. The dimensional statement pieces provide an elevated look and can add interest to otherwise empty corners. Sculptural art can adapt to every design style and can appeal to every taste. They also provide an opportunity to add color and texture in a new and unique way.  

Checkerboard Print

The pattern of the moment is without a doubt checkerboard. The color-blocked design is timeless but brings a fresh and modern touch to interiors today. The classic checkered print can easily be included in your current home style with the addition of ceramics, trays, and textiles such as rugs or bedding. The neutral yet bold nature of the checkerboard pattern makes it the perfect fall trend to try this season. 

Your home is your haven and spicing up your space can make a big difference in the way you love your home.

It’s summertime and, oftentimes, the soaring high temperatures may make you feel as if you are melting away! Northeast Florida residents beat the heat with a little help from a popular treat: ice cream. “There is something for everyone in Northeast Florida and, while locals tend to choose favorite ice cream shops to frequent, you truly can’t go wrong,” shares Davidson Realty President, Sherry Davidson. We’re sharing four of World Golf Village residents’ favorite places to enjoy ice cream in Northeast Florida. 

Dreamette

If you are looking for an ICONIC Jacksonville ice cream establishment, look no further than Dreamette. In 1948, the original Dreamette opened in Murray Hill and for more than seventy years, it’s been a local favorite. Don’t miss out on their legendary dipped cone, stop by today!

Mayday 

Perhaps the most unique ice cream shop in town is Mayday. With locations in St. Augustine, Jacksonville Beach, and Brooklyn, no one is far from this eclectic and handcrafted ice cream joint. Try the s’more, ice box lemon, and parent trap flavors next time you visit. 

Jeremiah’s 

What’s better than ice cream? Ice cream AND Italian ice. Jeremiah’s offers creamy soft serve, more than forty flavors of Italian ice, and the perfect layering of both with their gelati. The combinations are seemingly endless. The mango and vanilla gelati is a fan favorite worth trying. 

Whit’s 

If you are looking for rich frozen custard, look no further than Whit’s! With locations all over town, you won’t be far from delicious, sweet treats at Whit’s. Their custard sandwiches, banana split, and dirt worm are standouts on the menu. You won’t regret these treats on a hot day. 

This summer, take a trip to one of these World Golf Village resident favorite spots for a sweet treat. Which spot is your favorite?

TOP INTERIOR DESIGN TRENDS IN 2022

Posted by: Sherry Davidson in News, Tips
 

With a new year, comes a new opportunity to refresh your space. Whether it is a fresh coat of paint or a remodel, making changes to your home can provide value and a renewed sense of appreciation. Enjoy a round-up of the TOP interior design trends of 2022! 

Vintage Elements

If you have bought anything in the past year and a half, you have likely encountered supply chain shortages and delays. This disruption has caused many to embrace the old, one-of-a-kind pieces that many would overlook. Shopping vintage is not only a sustainable interior design option but adds character to your space. 

Black Accents

The addition of black brings an elevated contrast to your space. To a neutral-based room, black provides edge and depth creating visual interest. This trend was popularized when Urbane Bronze was named the 2021 Sherwin Williams Color of the Year. This timeless, sophisticated warm black pairs beautifully with whites, grays, greens, and amber hues. 

Home Bars

With the resurgence of interest in craft cocktails and beer and increased at-home entertainment, home bars are making a comeback! Elegant bar carts and built-in alcoves provide a dedicated space to showcase your collection of booze and glassware. This adults-only space is a must for those who love to entertain and impress. 

Versatile Spaces

The pandemic has influenced many design trends in 2022. One that likely won’t go away is the need for rooms to serve multiple purposes. Maximizing functionality and practicality has become a top priority as working from home is more common than ever. However, form doesn’t have to be sacrificed for the sake of function. Get creative and research unique ways to have all your needs met in your home. 

Your home is your haven and spicing up your space can make a big difference in the way you love your home.

Top Interior Design Trends of 2021

Posted by: Sherry Davidson in News, Tips
 

While in quarantine, you’ve likely grown an appreciation and love for the interior design of your home out of a renewed respect for your space. To satisfy the newfound designer in you, enjoy a roundup of the latest interior design trends of 2021! 

Wallpaper

In recent years, wallpaper has become increasingly popular and it looks like wallpaper has made its official comeback in 2021 in a new and exciting way! Wallpaper can be used to create a statement wall, add a pop of color, and even make a bold statement when used on the ceiling. Peel-and-stick wallpaper has led the charge in the wallpaper comeback because of how easy it is to remove and change, especially for renters or homeowners with evolving tastes. 

House Plants

Bridge the gap from outdoor to indoor living with fresh, luscious greenery. Plants not only bring natural beauty to a home, but have the added benefit of purifying the air and improving your mood. Some of our favorite low maintenance house plants include Bird’s Nest Fern, Bromeliad, and, the nearly impossible to kill, Snake Plant! 

Multifunctional Spaces

This trend is inevitably a side effect of the quarantine. With more people working from home and schools going virtual, rooms were quickly serving multiple purposes as everyone adapted to quarantined life. However, these spaces don’t have to sacrifice style. Maintaining a seamless flair throughout the room will not only unify the space, but make it more enjoyable and productive to spend time in. 

Textured Walls

Adding texture to your walls is the perfect accent to any space that needs a little boost. Textured walls bring dimension and mood to a space. With the addition of textured walls, rooms will appear larger as eyes will be drawn to the outer edge of the room. Trending textured wall applications include marble slabs, padded velvet walls and plastered walls.

Natural Elements

Organic materials and natural wood hues are making a statement in 2021. From earthy tones, terracotta vases, marble, and wicker there is no shortage of options to add natural mediums to your decor. The earthy appeal is just another way to add texture to your home especially if you have upholstered furniture. Adding natural accessories can help make your home more welcoming and complete. 

Sustainable Design

This year, interior design will take a more conscious approach than ever. While some will shop at antique and thrift shops for unique pieces to bring back back to life, others will research to find designers whose production is ethical and sustainable. Choosing decor made from wood, bamboo, cork and recycled metals are easy ways to make an impact on the environment.
