MyDecor will unleash the creativity and empower the productivity of the three million active users in the DecorMatters in-app design community.

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — DecorMatters, the tech-driven interior design platform, today announced the launch of the MyDecor marketplace. MyDecor is designed to meet the ever-growing demand for virtual home goods, including photographic and 3D models of home decor, furniture, pets, and more. MyDecor will unleash the creativity and empower the productivity of the three million active users in the DecorMatters design community.

Many renters and new homeowners are faced with a challenge when designing their home: how to figure out what their existing furniture and decor items will look like paired with new pieces they are considering purchasing. With MyDecor, do-it-yourselfers and professional interior designers have access to a powerful tool that allows them to see their existing and potential home items together in a virtual space.

With MyDecor, users can:

View their existing furniture in a new place when paired with new items. Users can now see how their own items will look in a new space without physically moving it. When shopping for something new, people usually just guess that it will pair well with what they currently have. With MyDecor, users can see how everything will look before making any purchases.
Design a room using their own inventory. Interior designers or stagers will no longer need to rely on others to create designs for their clients, a process that can take days to complete. They can now do it in minutes on their mobile device anywhere.
Create professional-quality designs. With MyDecor, users can adjust the lighting and shadows to make their items look even more realistic. Now they have access to images in MyDecor that have been edited by hand to create the highest-quality look.
Sell and buy digital assets. In a future release, the ability to buy and sell 3D models in the MyDecor marketplace will become available. Selling 3D models will be beneficial for retailers, as they can promote the sales of their real furniture and also turn their passive virtual inventory into a revenue-generating asset.
DecorMatters achieved 10x growth in 2018 and continues the hyper-growth. With the launch of MyDecor, the platform is one more step closer to the mission of building a decentralized economic system for global creativity.

U.S. International Trade Commission Finds for Domestic Industry in Trade Case Against Imports of Plastic Decorative Ribbon from China, Wiley Rein Reports

Decorating with bold colors

WASHINGTON, Feb. 27, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) has voted affirmatively in the final stage of its antidumping duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) investigations, finding that imports of plastic decorative ribbon from China materially injured the U.S. plastic decorative ribbon industry. All five Commissioners voted in the affirmative.

The ITC vote is a response to December 27, 2017 petitions filed by Berwick Offray LLC (Berwick Offray), the leading U.S. manufacturer of plastic decorative ribbon products. Based in Berwick, Pennsylvania, Berwick Offray is a unit of CSS Industries, Inc. The case has shown that imports of plastic decorative ribbon from China are being unfairly dumped in the United States and that Chinese producers of plastic decorative ribbon receive improper government subsidies. As the ITC has recognized, these actions violate international trade rules and injured the U.S. decorative plastic ribbon industry and its workers.

“The U.S. industry and its workers are thankful for the ITC’s decision as they have been injured by dumped and subsidized imports from China,” said Daniel B. Pickard, counsel to Berwick Offray and a partner in the International Trade Practice at Wiley Rein LLP. “We appreciate that the Department of Commerce and the International Trade Commission thoroughly investigated the injury caused by dumped and subsidized imports of Chinese producers.”

On February 1, 2019, the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) announced its affirmative final determinations in its AD and CVD investigations of imports of plastic decorative ribbon from China, finding combined AD and CVD rates of 70.36% to 386.19% with dumping rates as high as 370.04% and subsidy rates as high as 94.67%. As a result of today’s vote, the DOC will issue AD and CVD orders with cash deposit requirements on imports of plastic decorative ribbon from China.

In obtaining an affirmative final determination in this case, Wiley Rein LLP has worked alongside Capital Trade Inc. and International Economic Research LLC, consulting firms specializing in international trade remedies.

Decorating with bold colors

MISSION, Kan., March 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — (Family Features) From dark and moody to vibrant and bold, colorful design is gaining favor among homeowners ditching safe, neutral palettes to create more daring, dramatic spaces.

Decorating with deeply saturated colors can be intimidating. Explore these ideas to welcome more bold colors into your home and create inviting spaces for living and entertaining.

Walls of color
Say goodbye to beige and embrace the bold color trend by enhancing walls with hues that make a statement. The trick is to avoid making colors so loud that the space loses its stylish appeal. Bold doesn’t necessarily mean bright, so look for muted variations of the shades you prefer. Also remember that when it comes to design, there is such a thing as too much. If painting all the walls in a space will close it in or make it feel lost in the dark, try adding color in more subtle ways, such as an accent wall (or two), or painting the ceiling as your accent. Another option for implementing vibrant wall color: stick to smaller rooms, where the bold look is less likely to be overwhelming.

Illuminate color with natural light
When decorating with statement colors, remember that lighting can make a significant difference in the overall aesthetic. In addition to lighting fixtures, be sure to incorporate plenty of natural light to bring out the best in those bold hues.

To bring natural light deeper into the space, consider skylights as an option with a solution such as Velux No Leak Solar Powered Fresh Air Skylights, which can bathe the space in natural light and open to bring in fresh air. Another smart way to capture natural light is by installing an option like Sun Tunnel skylights. With their low-profile design, they create a sleek appearance, and installation is also quick and easy. Learn more at

Bold furnishings
An often overlooked but essential component of design is the furniture. Creating a colorful, inviting room doesn’t stop with the walls and floors; what’s in the room can bring the colors to life. Think of the space and all its contents, not just the architectural components, as your canvas for creating the space you envision. If you’re hesitant to invest in a pricy couch in a trendy hue, a compromise might come in the form of a richly colored accent table or chair.

Creative cabinetry
Traditional wood grain cabinetry sometimes gives way to far more creative color schemes in kitchens and bathrooms. While white is still a popular choice, and can even be considered bold in the right setting, true color on cabinets is also gaining traction among homeowners. With the right backsplash, countertops and flooring, you can safely install cabinets in a uniform color throughout the kitchen, but another on-trend option is to reserve the color for an island base or just one wall of cabinets. You could even mix and match colors on the tops and bottoms. Detail elements like the hardware provide another opportunity for a bold look. You can enhance the room’s design with standout pulls that lend extra vibrance to the space.

Fabric with flair
Textiles provide nearly unlimited options to balance a bold design. Using lighter fabrics for elements such as draperies, upholstery, rugs and decorative pillows can soften the feel of a room with bold tones. Look for subtle patterns that pull in hints of the deeper hue to bring the look together, or simply coordinate shades from complementary color families.

Unexpected Pops of Color
Designers often talk about adding pops of color to bring together a palette, but there are no real rules about where those color enhancements can or should be. Introducing vibrant color in unexpected places can be an especially impactful way to stylize a room.

One example is with a skylight blind, which provides a decorative element while also allowing for light control. If you prefer a trendy option like combining dark colors with metallic accents, consider options such as a metallic gold skylight blind from Velux to connect to the room decor below. More than 80 color and pattern choices heighten the drama of a skylight blind, and you can choose from features like room darkening, light filtering and Venetian-style blinds to add function as well.
