Interior Design Trends

There’s plenty of reasons to shop at Star Furniture, including everything from our extensive selection of high-quality furniture to our exclusive interior design resources. In addition to our free furniture arrangement tool and our robust home design blog, Star Furniture also offers in-store complimentary interior design services to our customers. We sat down with Lucia Gentry, an interior design expert at our Clear Lake location to discuss the Star Furniture experience, home décor trends she loves, easy interior design tips, and her favorite furniture collections for sale at Star.

What’s one new design trend you love this year?

I’m excited that grey has made a comeback for interior wall paint color. People are choosing light and cheerful furniture with modern and traditional styles to complement grey walls. The kitchens in new homes and the Harvey remodels are mostly white with dark grey islands and accents.

What is one easy tip anyone can implement to design a beautiful home?

Wow! I wish there was one easy home design tip. Come to Star Furniture to find the look and comfort you want to convey in your home. Start with inspiration from Google, Houzz, home furnishing magazines, and Pinterest. When you’re ready to begin decorating, choosing a rug first is always a great place to start.

What are some of your current favorite furniture pieces available at Star Furniture?

I love working with the Hooker Chatelet Collection and Kincaid Weatherford. They both have a large selection of beautiful pieces for every room in the house. The farmhouse style of the Kincaid and the rustic charm of the Chatelet, along with the greys, whites, and warm wood tone finishes tend to mix well with a variety of collections and decorating styles.

What’s your favorite part of working for Star Furniture?

The people I’ve gotten to know and assist over the years; helping them create beautiful rooms and enjoyable homes.
