Zuniga Interiors favorite design trends for 2011- that seem to be a reflection of  2010.  We see it as a result of  the world's economy and state of mind.  Since we are a global mix, the world is embracing that, at the same time it is a time to reflect on the past, from how we got here, to preserving the family, and having a sense of security in a time of uncertainty.  Above all interior design is looking back to a time of fine craftsmanship, bench made furnishings, hand-made crafts, nature-inspired and eco-friendly designs.  It is a time to not be "trendy" but to "Live With What You Love."  A time to show one's true sense of style in their own lifestyle setting.- Zuniga Interiors
