Home Furnishings: Bold accents spark subdued shades at Nativa Interiors in La Jolla and Solana Beach
By Marti Gacioch
Bold accents are punching up neutral shades in decor this year at Nativa Interiors, said senior designer Lori Bertran, A.S.I.D.
“Contemporary furniture designs have moved away from darker browns in favor of grays, taupe and honey tones that can be sparked with turquoise, plum, greens and yellow accessories,” she said. “Even traditional furniture is trending away from the darkest browns, like espresso, to a tobacco-like medium brown.”
Nativa, a one-stop shop for timeless home furnishings for every room in the home, is known for its beautifully handcrafted solid wood pieces that range from contemporary to traditional designs with a Spanish and Mediterranean flavor. Nativa’s interior designers work closely with customers to achieve a timeless look for their homes that they’ll love for years.
“In fabrics, and in general, there’s a trend toward a lighter, fresher feel for interiors now, and with gray, it’s fun to work in pops of color like plum,” Bertran said. “We’re redoing our La Jolla showroom emphasizing new color palettes like turquoise, plums, blues and greens.”
Nature-inspired pieces built with the environment in mind continue to resonate with customers. Nativa’s furniture craftsmen use bamboo, cherry, alder and ironwood that is easily replenishable without harming the environment.
“We’re showing petrified wood pieces and items made of natural materials that you’d find in nature, including tables made of tree trunks, but with a glass table top it looks sophisticated,” Bertran said. “We also feature eco-friendly fabrics and lines of furniture where the manufacturer uses ecological processes.”
Accessories add sparkle to the new subdued decor lines with metal pieces, glass sculptures and mixes of metallic with tarnished silver, gold leaf and chrome on mirrors and end tables. Nativa carries Beatriz Ball metal serving pieces and colorful German ceramics by Lunares.
“We’re featuring new outdoor patio furniture lines and outdoor fabrics that customers like so much they want to use them indoors as well,” Bertran said.
Recently, Nativa opened a new mini art gallery upstairs that showcases contemporary modern art pieces by local artists. “Travelers visiting San Diego like to bring a piece of the city back, and they’re drawn to the gallery,” Bertran said.
Nativa offers full service interior design service for furniture layout, color selections, window covering, and flooring, as well as kitchen and bath consultations. u
