Inside Design: Simple Stripes

One of the 2015 design trends is simple stripes. It's splashed all over products!

Stripes are everywhere! For decades this simple pattern has been a hit. Today, we’re spotting this 2015 design trend on decor and accessories. Stripes can be subtle, playful, or sophisticated. “There’s something so classic yet so versatile about stripes. Whether you’re going for a modern or more classic style, stripes are timeless,” says Angela, our director of product development. This is one of the most simplistic 2015 design trends, and we’ve spotted this pattern sprinkled across everyday products you’ll love.

Our first find is this Ralph Lauren bowl that has blue hues organically painted in a striped pattern. This bowl is calming, with the hand painted technique softening the striped pattern.

This Ralph Lauren Bowl has a beautiful striped hand-painted look. The perfect accent for your dinner table.

Inside Design: Kissed with Copper

Who would have thought a material made in pre-historic times would become one of our favorite 2015 design trends? But to our surprise, we’ve seen copper pop-up in many homes and products. The best part about copper is that it can add that perfect accent to any style of room – from rustic to modern. “It’s modern and warm yet has more of a casual feel than gold,” says Angela, our director of product development.

One product we’ve spotted and just can’t get enough of is this Penelope Accent Table from Crate & Barrel. We love the simple design, and its warm copper glow adds an interesting contrast to any room.

Inside Design: Bright Splashes

2015 Design Trends
Splish splash! We’re raving over this poppy-bright 2015 design trend. It’s watercolor – in bright colors. We’ve spotted it EVERYWHERE. It’s on clothing, home decor, accessories, and DIY projects. Angela, our Director of Product Design, said, “We are even taking this 2015 design trend and incorporating it into our cards. Currently, our product team is working on Christmas cards (yes, Christmas cards!) and it is our job to keep our designs up to date so when it comes time for you to share your greetings, you will be a trendsetter.”

Why do we love this design trend? It’s perfect for the summer. This time of year, it’s all about beaches, pools and lakes—refreshing drinks, cool breezes, and summer vacations making memories out on the water. Taking those splashes and combining them with bright colors makes this trend a summer-time favorite.

This summer it’s all about the dips! Not delicious chip dips, or taking a dip in the pool, but, instead, colored paint dips! Yellows, blues, oranges and pink paints add that color pop you need to make your summer a little brighter. One of our favorite 2015 design trends, this look has a beautiful modern-feel, giving any room or accessory a little geometric twist.

“The dips are so fresh! I’ve discovered literally everything I own is now a potential DIY project,” Says Angela Ferrara, Director of Product Development.

Just for you, we’ve scouted the most beautiful DIY ideas and products that will add a little color to your summer.

Unique Designs for Girl Dresses

At Pear Tree, we are inspired by design and appreciate new design. Earlier this week we heard about two moms who, like us, are pushing the limits on new design. These moms created the brand, Princess Awesome. They have a very inspiring story about how girls have various interests in toys, animals, superheros and more, but there aren’t any dresses that have those designs. These moms took it upon themselves to solve that. They started this clothing design business in a basement, found the resources they needed to get these one-of-a-kind designs and started selling locally and then online. They have 3 dress designs they are focusing on: Pi, pirates, and dinosaurs. Design ideasDesign Ideas Design ideas
