Our decorating editor, who spent the week at High Point Market, has been sending me daily field reports. We’ve got some yummy in-depth posts on Market (and KBIS, too!) coming up, but till then I thought I’d share one her letters with you:

The biggest trend I’ve seen so far is the weathered, time-worn, distressed look like the gorgeous stuff at BoBo Intriguing Objects

…and Zentique.

It’s a more refined, more authentic shabby chic. I love it, I want it, I covet it.

Contrasted w/ the natural, subdued fabrics and timeworn finishes are bright, poppy colors (turquoise is everywhere) and bold, oversize patterns.

Lots of off-set, screen-printed patterns on accessories, which modernizes the vintage-look pieces.
