  3. ND: What impact has the gray trend had in the furniture and home decor sector? TF: I de nitely think this gray trend is going to stay in the market for quite some time. Lighter colors tend to go better with that minimalist, more modern contemporary transitional look.
4. ND: How is gray being customized in clients’ homes?
TF: We are changing the wall color, updating light  xtures, maybe the hardware. We are also then incorporating new lighter sofas
to help brighten the space. One way to customize this trend or refresh it is by doing a customized fabric for a sofa or accent pillows.
5. ND: How do you work within a trend that can impact so much of a home’s design? TF: I tend to go room by room. I start with one, then meander to the rest. I typically like to start with  ooring and work my way up. So I might  nd a rug and then work my way up to wall color. Then we move on to selecting the appropriate furniture pieces for the space. You can put a lot of pattern or a pop
of color in the carpet so the rest of the room can stay neutral.
6. ND: Where in Dallas Market Center can designers  nd products that represent this trend?
TF: I have quite a few go-to resources at Dallas Market Center, such as Visual Comfort, Gabby Home, Currey & Company, Uttermost, Sterling-Dimond Home, Park Hill, Surya, Wendover, and Art Trends to name a few.
