It is finally warming up and time to get rid of your old tired furniture. But what are the latest design trends? Lead Designer from La-Z-Boy's newest flagship store in Schaumburg - Annie Futia stops by WCL with the latest design trends. Here are her tips:

Tip #1: Colors

Selecting a color scheme often comes down to how you want a room to feel. Use blues, greens and purples to achieve a calming space. For stimulating, energizing spaces, use warmer colors like yellows, reds and oranges. Create airy, open and fresh spaces with beiges, creams, blacks and whites. Or find a piece of art or an accessory you love and use its colors to inspire the palette for the entire room.

Tip #2: Focal Point

The focal point is the centerpiece of a space, what we focus on as we enter a room. In today's culture, large, wall-mounted televisions have often become the default focal points of our living spaces, but they don't have to be! To create a focal point, find an accessory or a piece of art that can make an impact in the space. A large piece of art with a chunky frame works well and can be hung over a fireplace or a sofa.

Tip #3: Accessorizing

Accessories are the "jewelry" of the space. The little details and accents that tighten up the room's theme and make it feel like home. When accessorizing, group items in odd numbers and use a variety of heights to add visual interest and dimension. Don't be afraid to use mixed media and seek color inspiration from the wall art, rugs and pillows in the space.

Tip #4: Patterns

Mixing patterns in a room is a great way to add dimension. When mixing patterns, choose patterns of different sizes. Too many of the same size pattern can overwhelm the room so use larger patterns on accent pieces such as a chair or a rug. Be sure to tie your patterns together by choosing coordinating color schemes.
