Nouveau Rich

The reemergence of Art Nouveau designs recalls an earlier era filled with the wonders of nature. Extravagant organic forms are in the spotlight, set against a backdrop of deep, jeweled hues. Lavish, stylized recreations of flora and fauna center at the heart of every design, weaving a rich tapestry that ties in to the nature and opulence trends currently hip in home fashions.

Native North Carolinian Tracy Bulla has been Home Accents Today's product editor since 2002. As a graduate of UNC-Chapel Hill's School of Journalism, Tracy's first foray into reporting involved covering the financial markets. This short-lived enterprise resulted in no great loss to the world of finance when it became apparent that the reporter could not balance her own checkbook. Tracy then followed her lifelong passion for fashion into the glamorous world of design where she is continuously in thrall to the lure of beautiful, well-designed objects of desire. Lo, Tracy's pampered Pekingese, shares her appreciation for exquisite style by choosing to only chew up the most expensively embellished Italian shoes.
