2007 BALA Design Trends

Every year, the BALA judges reflect on the applications and designs that they have poured over in selecting the winners and identify the themes that emerge. In 2007, the following observations were made:

  • The evolution of outdoor living spaces continues.
  • Boldness of color and form stands out in both interiors and exteriors.
  • Houses convey a more human scale.
  • Wood is ascendant in interior trim and details.
  • The streetscape has evolved into a form of art.
  • Designers are reinterpreting what contemporary means.
  • Urban infill pulls all elements of living together.
  • Modular homes offer heightened design.
