Industry experts predict that apart from warm woods and creative colors to memorable murals and tailored textures, 2012 will offer a multitude of options for those interested in giving their homes a fresh look. Many of these home décor trends are quite inexpensive and easy to incorporate as well. Elaborating on home décor trends, home design expert, author and TV/radio personality Christopher Lowell feels that upholstered furniture coverings are being driven more by texture and less by prints. Gone are the times of bulky, stationary pit sofa. These will now be replaced by lower backs and seats along with smaller "footprint" pieces clustered into conversation groups for more flexibility and ease of interaction. A good home décor trend for those that want to add personality and life to their bedroom, living room, family or office; a wall mural is a quick an inexpensive way to achieve that. The home décor trends in textures and fabrics for the next year will include iridescent metallic woven within fabric; strong patterns and bold prints; modern floral; tailored woven fabrics like tweed, herringbone, plaid and houndstooth; velvet/velour, sumptuous dupioni silk, and faux fur. Natural fibers such as bamboo, jute, eucalyptus, cotton, silk, wool and cork will remain popular in home décor. Experts also feel that home décor will become more affordable as an increasing number of people will opt for second hand yard sale items that are well made.

Due to high water on the Mississipi and Ohio rivers, Jeffersonville's new RiverStage theater barge has arrived for remodeling after a delay of 4 1/2-months.
Architect Wayne Estopinal said that remodeling should be a fun project for us.
"Remodeling the 260-foot-long barge, which formerly was the hanging entrance to a casino in St. Louis, will be an inimitable job," said Estopinal.
"Remodeling of the RiverStage is expected to get over by next summer season and if in case it requires more time, it will be done perhaps the following year," said Larry Thomas Jeffersonville's communications director.
"It does make sense to take the time to do high-quality work on the remodeling," added Thomas.
