What's New in '22

April Moxley, owner of April’s On Main - 222 North Main St.

“The color of the year, Veri Peri, is fabulous and part of my favorite color palette,” says April. “Distressed furniture is still on trend, with a natural organic texture. To add interest, incorporate a live-edge piece of furniture as an accent and piece of art. She also says yellow and turquoise accessories top the list, but also navy blue and brass, which reappeared into the decorating field last fall. While silk florals are not for everyone, succulents will add color and dimension for the finishing touch to any room.”

Laura Callahan, owner of Two Chicks Vintage Marketplace – 205 North Main St.

With 10,000 sq. ft. on two floors, you’ll find everything needed to pull off the latest décor trend…Newstalgia. Laura says the look is driven by a desire for every item in your home to reveal your personality or interests. “We’re packed full of unique antique and vintage furniture, spring/garden accessories, all which relate to you and your style. The Newstalgia trend features a mix of new furnishings with antique, collectible items…your grandfather’s 1920s piano, your great aunt’s wine glasses or your great grandmother’s wood armoire. That’s Newstalgia.”

Courtney Cottrell, owner of Fig & Sparrow - 300 North Main St.

Courtney created Fig & Sparrow to inspire creativity and storytelling in the kitchen while selling heirloom kitchenware to pass down through generations of cooks, bakers, grillers, bartenders, and gardeners. “The Honey Bee theme is big this summer, as is at-home entertaining with our handcrafted Speakeasy Cocktail Smoker and cocktail infusion blends! We are one of the few places in the nation that carries all of Nordic Ware's seasonal bakeware collections in-store. Shortcake baskets--which are only limited to your imagination as to what you fill them with--and bunny molds are perfect for Easter celebrations!”

Bobbie Netsch – co-owner of Thro’s & Michelle’s – 229 North Main St.

Gauze fabrics, shirt jackets (“shackets”) and embroidered denim top some of the fashion trends for ’22. At Michelle’s, you’ll find bright yellows and navy blues, as well as softer muted pastels, in brands from Brighton to Joseph Ripkoff. Michelle’s has been offering the finest dresses, sportswear, and fashion accessories in the metro area for 57 years. And Thro’s has been doing the same since 1898! They now carry Johnnie-O and 7Diamonds, along with Southern Tide, Tori Richard, and St Louis-based The Normal Brand. “One new trend is men buying matching suits for weddings instead of renting tuxes,” says Frank Netsch, co-owner along with wife, Bobbie, and Rose Thro Wells.
