Above the trends listed below, patterns are still in fashion, luckily for me. this time in every thinkable form, preferably incorporated into the existing furniture. Some designers to look at is Sam Baron, (accessorise), Sergio Botti (tables), Omar Carraglia for Davide Groppie (lights) Bruno Rainaldi (lamps) and much more..
Trends from Milan: "naturalism (leaves, raw wood, bamboo and green), glitz & glam (huge with glitter stuff), handmade touches (exposed stitching, joints and details like oversized hinges and screws), geometric/faceted designs (my favourite) and yellow (mostly a pollen/chartreuse hue seen in everything from fabric to powder-coated steel chairs)." And no colours, just black and white. Everything we saw in fashion last year.

Interior design trends are constantly evolving, strongly influenced by both fashion industry and the art world, this time from Trina Turk and her beutiful colours and patterns on clothing. Summer 2007 - Deep blue paired with lighter tones, along with white, and egg yolk yellow as an accent, are popular trends for summer fashion but also for interiors. Bold, graphic patterns make cheerful additions to the home. Watch for large geometric prints in chocolate paired with white, too.

Just around the corner of my new flat, I found this store that sells bathtubs from a famous Spanish designer named Jaime Hayón. He combines the organic with the minimal, stylized and yet almost alive, with shapes and colours that I never seen in a bathroom before. Due to the trend of bathroom starting to integrate more with rest of the rooms in the apartment, Jaime answers the question perfectly by treating the bathtubs as pieces of furniture.
