CS: What trends for 2012 are you embracing? Which ones do you think will stand the test of time?
PP: My two favorite trends are the Moroccan influence we are seeing in design right now and the prevalence of nature-inspired wall coverings. I think both of these add interest to a space without being overwhelming. The Moroccan influence gives us a way to add color and interesting patterns to a space while the organic-feeling wall coverings add a huge dose of warmth and comfort.
I think that both of these can stand the test of time as long as they are used judiciously.
