Trend 2011: Twin Peaks Country

I thought I’d try I bit of trend predicting here today… Of course there are several trends going on right now, but I am going to start with the one I believe will be the most dominant one. Let’s call it Twin Peaks Country.


This old tv series from 1990 is actually loaded with decor and design details that are spot on for 2011. Just take a look at the photo below featuring a deer head, two different types of wood and hues of grey and black.


Translated into rooms, it could look something like this:

Grey, black and wood, with a little drama added by the dress on the divan.

A wooden cabinet against a wood panel background, with some rustic sourdough bread.


A mix of different woods and a bunny, but it could just as easily have been a deer head.


Then we have this room below, which I clearly remember from when I watched Twin Peaks for the first time. I was only 11 but it obviously made a big impression. The chevron pattern is coming strong again, but I’m not so sure about the red drapes… A bit too dramatic for real life in my opinion.

H&M Home made some nice chevron patterned products to let you take this pattern into your own home.

Alcro‘s AD paint collection by Li Edelkoort from last year still works. This red hue is a lot easier to live with, and see how great it looks with wood and grey? Mixed with green it reminds me of flanel shirts, which were EVERYWHERE in the tv series. The checkered pattern of the shirts will work great for this year too, not only in decorating but in fashion too.


The Log Lady is super trendy! Logs are used in interior decorating, not just in baskets near the fireplace, but in other ways too…

Like this storage wall built of logs, by Studio St Paul. They managed to combine two of the biggest trends right now, crates and logs, in a great way. Notice the elk horns in the upper left corner too.

I also believe that 2011 will be the year when the overly sweet cupcakes will finally go out of fashion and get replaced by… you guessed it! Doughnuts!
