WE SAT DOWN WITH INTERIOR DECORATOR AND NY CONTRIBUTOR TO THE `MATERIAL GIRLS' BLOG, REBECCA TIER SOSKIN -ANDTHE LOVELY SARAH LEDERMAN, OF `CHEVRON AND STRIPES' BLOG TO SEE WHAT THEY HAVE IN SIGHT FOR 2012! INDUSTRY INSIDER Selected by House Beautiful as "One of the top 20 designers to watch in 2010", REBECCA TIER SOSKIN is a self-proclaimed lover of "all things decorative and fun!" "As a decorator in New York I'm constantly chasing down the next "it" thing and dreaming up colorful, fun and trendy compositions for people of all walks of life." "ALWAYS REMEMBER TO USE CONTRAST IN DESIGN. IF YOUR TABLE IS DARK AND RUSTIC, SEARCH FOR LIGHTER MORE MODERN, WHIMSICAL CHAIRS." TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOUR APPROACH TO DESIGN - OR YOUR SIGNATURE STYLE WHAT MAKES YOU YOU? I tend to give my client the microphone (for the initial meeting) when it comes to decorating their home. They're the ones who are going to be living in it in the end, so i want to make sure that I fully understand what it is that they like, want and need in their every day life. Once I've established their likes and dislikes, I'm able to give them what they want using a collaboration of their personality and my innovative approach to design. I don't like to think of myself as having a signature design. I want each space I create to feel as unique as my clients. When I'm not meeting with clients it's usually architects, contractors, vendors and other designers; all of whom complete my world and make every day as interesting as the next. I'm a lover of all things decorative and fun. WHAT TRENDS ARE YOU ENVISIONING FOR 2012? I think the color gray is extremely popular and will continue to be through 2012 and then some... I'm also envisioning lots of lacquer intermixed with modern metals and bold abstract art. 2012 is going to be bold!

STYLE SETTER Rebecca's picks from the S/S Collection ARABESCO CHINA BLUE PILLOWS "These pillows would look great on a kitchen banquette with other pops of color." ZIGGY TANGERINE PILLOWS "Love these for a kid's space!" ZIGGY DOVE CARD COVER "I want that Ziggy Card Cover in Dove for my purse - it would be the envy of all at my design events!" INDUSTRY INSIDER SARAH LEDERMAN - of the daily lifestyle blog `CHEVRON & STRIPES' - splits her time between NYC and Miami Beach, working on AROC URTU, the jewelry line she developed with designer Lauren Bergman, freelance styling for fashion editorials and commercial ad campaigns, and authoring her blog. Sarah holds a Fine Arts degree from the Univ. of Wisconsin-Madison, a degree in Fashion Merchandising and Management from the FIT, and studied fashion photography and art in Florence, Italy. "FOR 2012, I'M KEEPING MY EYE OUT FOR NEW AND INTERESTING WAYS TO MIX PRINTS... I think it's a fresh and whimsical look for both the home and wardrobe." TELL US A BIT ABOUT HOW YOUR BLOG CONCEPT BEGAN, AND HOW YOU LAUNCHED IT! I launched Chevrons & Stripes in 2010 when I found out I was moving from NYC to Miami Beach. I've always been the go -to gal amongst my friends for styling tips, design advice, and unique finds and I thought a blog would be a perfect and fun way to capture my aesthetic. Now that the audience is growing, and we have been lucky enough to be recognized on some of my favorite sites like Martha Stewart's blog and West Elm's `Front & Main'. VISIT SARAH'S BLOG DAILY FOR FASHION, DECOR & LIFESTYLE TIPS! ChevronsAndStripes.com We do everyday! WHAT TRENDS ARE YOU ENVISIONING FOR 2012? For 2012, I'm keeping my eye out for new and interesting ways to mix prints. I love the look of mixing variations of the same print - for example big stripes with little stripes, or white polka dots with black polka dot. I think it's a fresh and whimsical look for both the home and wardrobe. I'm also into what Brad Goreski (yes, I'm quoting Rachel Zoe's old assistant) calls "P.O.C.'s" or "pops of color". I've always loved the simplicity of the white/gray color scheme I have going in my home, and it's the perfect palette to add a P.O.C. here and there. I'm really looking forward to adding some neon into the mix this season for an extra jolt of energy. modern designs + pure fibers. made in the usa. STYLE SETTER Sarah's picks from the S/S Collection ZIGGY DOVE PILLOWS "I have a sweet 1 year old pup named Ziggy so that combined with my passion for chevrons has me seriously swooning over the Ziggy pillow in stone." LIMELIGHT NEON PIPERS "Stylist Brad Goreski has me into `P.O.C.'s' - pops of color! This definitely jives with my P.O.C. plan!" ZIGGY ICE CARD COVER "Now that I have gorgeous new letterpressed business cards I need a little something to protect them! Plus, it matches my logo quite perfectly."
