We went to the kickoff party for the Dream Rooms at Merchandise Mart - it was a packed house, full of cocktail-sipping interiors fans checking out the rooms done up by the designers. We managed to snap a few photos of details from the rooms that we thought were especially interesting...possible future trends and offbeat ideas:
Huge Maps as Wall Covering
Icy Colors and Clear Accessories
Strong and Varied Textures on Walls and Upholstery
"Digitized" Floral Wallpaper (this was gorgeous in person!)
Very Large Scale Patterns for Upholstery
The Dream Rooms are open at the Merchandise Mart through July 12. Monday - Friday, 10am to 5pm and Saturdays 10am to 3pm. Admission is complimentary.
