Tinsel Town - Slick, sleek, reflective and flashy; these styles are for those who want to bring on the bling!  Winter white with a graphic ribbon design in Mylar is pure eye candy up close and lends a more subtle sheen from across the room; this wallpaper design is the perfect choice for contemporary furniture styles.  Or choose a soft stripe that glints reflectively and is oh, so versatile.  The slight fresco background marries it well to either loft décor or grand mansion, its mirror like accents securing it firmly in fashion forward favor.

New Romantics – Step aside 12 color floral, the new romantic fashion statement has gossamer amethyst going steady with shimmering Mylar.  Its pretty, its sophisticated, its paparazzi worthy!  Select a trendy trellis design for your walls with a hushed lavender ground and mirror like fretwork for the room that features chrome and silver accents.  For unabashedly feminine décor that still sets a fashion savvy statement choose a floral trail silhouette where amethyst plays the leading role in a juxtaposition of matt and glimmering finishes, so lovely with mirrored chests and crystal accents.

Budding Artists & Happily Ever Afters

There is something tremendously heartwarming in the creative motifs and saturated colors of children’s artwork.  At York we capture the spirit of youthful whimsy in our kid’s collections through luscious colors and simple engaging designs that fill your home with a happy family glow.

And York is not the only place you’ll find families are glowing these days!  Hollywood’s dream couple, Angelina and Brad, make it official; celebrating their marriage in France on August 23rd.  Angelina looks beautiful in whatever ensemble adorns her, but this day the fashion statement is all about family.  To quote Hello magazine “Jolie’s plain white floor-length antique lace and silk dress and veil featured an unorthodox twist, with drawings by their six children sewed into the gown by Atelier Versace master tailor Luigi Massi.”  And just like York’s Room to Grow collection, the Jolie-Pitt family artists love to draw animals, flowers, the sky and outer space, as well as family silhouettes.

William, Kate and little Prince George captivated the crowds in Australia and New Zealand during the recent Royal Tour; their glowing happiness as a family apparent at every stop.  And with the recent announcement of baby #2 on the way there will be another royal to watch as the family gains a new member!

Kate continues to impress with her flair for fashion, always looking lovely in rich colors and fabulous patterns.  Prince George is well turned out too with snappy pinstripes, adorable smocking and whimsical motifs, usually in strong blue tones like his Daddy.  These sophisticated new traditions for the prince are remarkably similar to on trend kid’s room styles like those found in York’s Room To Grow and Peek a Boo collections.

Another family that we find stylishly inspiring is Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith and their clan.  Wherever their images pop up they exude togetherness and unique style.  So confident in dashing bold colors with a great blend of sophisticated-meets-casual flair.  Wonderfully fresh, just like York’s Room to Grow collection that features bold colors on canvas sneakers, sports motifs with pops of orange that suggest motion, new retro peace signs and juicy color pennant flags.

Hot Summer Days, Cool Summer Nights

Heat it Up with Hot Pink
Step aside ballet pink:  hot pink is exactly that – hot!  It’s a bold new look for a feminine classic, whether you wear it, or your walls wear it!  From designer gowns to designer walls, this softly intense color states feminine confidence.  Our Charleston damask takes boring walls to new places with hot pink, stunning in both its scale and dimensional finish.  Accent pieces like this Roccoco mirror with its curves and filigree scrolls add a bright pop of color; truly a reflection of a bold new you.  Smaller accents can be just as dynamic – so don’t hold back – unless its with a graceful drapery accessory!

Cool it Down with Sea Glass.
Cool breezes, aquamarine ocean, sandy beaches.  Ok, perhaps a trip to the Carribean is not in your future.   You can still capture the essence of this little bit of paradise with  beautiful sea glass color throughout your home.  Vintage meets refreshed with sea glass tones in this inspired Scrimshaw motif; the perfect conversation starter for walls in that special room, or the plates you set the table with.  Accent your home with gorgeous sea glass drawer pulls, inspired by the roll of ocean waves; or accent yourself with beautiful sea glass jewelry softened by time and tides.

Keep it Comfortable with Neutrals.
For those who don’t like the extremes of hot and cool, there’s always the gracious living created with richly designed and intricately textured neutrals.  These splendid hues are a very distant cousin to boring beige with their warm grounds, rich tops and layers of shimmer and shine.

What a fine balance, the deep warm tones of rattan married to the cool crisp whites of cotton.  And what better way to have them joined then in an inviting double chaise for the garden and in a clean lined damask, or inviting floral for your walls.
