Niche, for Kitsch: 2011's Decor Trend "The Look of Happiness"

Interior Design Follows Fashion.
Perfect mediums for a big and little sister.
Niche is a little interior design
mixed into a lot of Kitsch.

The experience of the last few years
 have been a series of change for most Americans,
and we've all tread down unfamiliar roads
 as we've experienced the ups and downs
 of our changing economy.

Now we are approaching year 4 of the recession. 
We've cut back.
We've done without.  
Style has reflected our need to conserve,
and we have turned to our roots,
resources, and abilities.

We've watchedas the trends for interiors have gone from:
 glitzy, sparkly and opulent during 2003-2006,
to the organic,simple and natural trends of the last 2 years.

In fashion over the last 2 years, we've seen a new introduction of COLOR.
Variations on the 12 hues of the color wheel
 have been thrown into our wardrobes
 using daring combinations color with grays and browns.

For a lot of us,
this simple and inexpensive play on color
 in our wardrobes has been FUN.
 We have USED it to escape from the economic slump
that has been looming over our entire country for 3 years.

This year, as typical, interiors will follow fashion.
Color is going to explode into our lives,
and we will continue to use it to spark our optimism.
Only, with fashion the colors were a little muddy,
a little warped and twisted from their original hues.
And when we see them come into interiors
they will be vibrant, bold and pure.

Notice what color does to you.
If you haven't already noticed it in your wardrobe,
notice it as you update your home or office.
In essence, color is light.
And we don't just see color,
we FEEL color.
An actual and measurable FEELING,
just like we feel hot and cold.

The colors you see this year will

The LOOK of

And the Entire world will Feel it.
