The Boston Design Center has made a career of spotting new trends in home design by releasing an annual list of the hottest trends in interiors and accoutrement soon to make their rounds in showrooms across the globe the 2010 version of which has recently been made available online.
The BDC, the only design center in the country to cover residential, contract, kitchen, bath and outdoor design across its 87 individually-owned showrooms, receives countless samples of new products ranging from residential furniture and fabric swatches to fixtures for the kitchen and bathroom and has what many consider the enviable task of separating what is hot for the season from what is decidedly not.
Alexis Contant, the center''s vice-president, general manager and leader of the team that compiled the 2010 style guide, believes that designers sometimes create the latest trends simultaneously.
"When you''re seeing the same trends from different companies that would never speak to each other it''s really wild," she tells Boston.com. "Clearly something is going on in the ether."
As for the predictions for 2010, the BDC team is forecasting a return vibrant colors and 80''s inspired sensibilities.
