Shop the (Home) Trend: Red

Fall has finally arrived and with it the cooler temperatures.  Its a perfect time to update your decor.  Color has been all over from fashion to interior design and i have been loving the addition of red.  Its all about the no none sense primary red that was shown walking down the most prestigious runway collections.  With home trends often following fashion this look has become a hot trend.  Luscious accents of red make any interior fresh and sexy.  I especially love using red velvet for accent chairs paired with brass can make a chic statement like the vintage club chairs found on 1st dibs.  If you are bold try lacquering a whole room in a apple red to create a real statement.  for the less adventurous use red as an accent in lighting for a moody look or an accent pillow that can be easily swapped out in the spring.

STARK has been synonymous with the world's finest floorcoverings since its inception and has been the go-to resource for top interior decorators for decades.

A life-long design enthusiast, Ashley redecorated her own bedroom when she was 14, and later, when STARK acquired the iconic fabric house Old World Weavers, Ashley was taught by its founders, Iris and Carl Apfel, everything there is to know about textiles. The Apfels often stayed with her late into the night, quizzing her on the nuances of jacquards and brocades. Ashley's love of fashion greatly influences her work as STARK's Creative Director, as she draws from current trends to develop designs and translates them into the most luxurious carpets and rugs.
