Top Interior Design Trends 2015: What to expect from the design world in the New Year
Colors. First and foremost on our top interior design trends 2015-color. In 2015 we will see a move toward the cooler and softer side of the color spectrum. An eclectic mix of understated brights, pale pastels and nature-like neutrals take center stage. A sort of throw back to retro delights, folkloric and floral art, and the magical worlds of tropical landscapes will restore a sense of well being as we emerge from the cold winter months.
Muted pastels and neutrals will be paired with smoky grays, soft blacks and creamy white tones, reinventing classic decorating ideas or providing beautiful contrasts into contemporary spaces. There will be no lack of rich browns, deep marine blues, and vibrant jewel tones in the near future. They are here to stay in 2015!
Materials. Earthy materials, such as stone, reclaimed and exotic woods, metals and glass will be dominant in the world of material finishes. The use of wood in unconventional ways will be one of the most spectacular trends for 2015. Textures derived from nature will be one of the biggest themes to look for throughout the year. The materials and finishes should look authentic and will be used in more simple ways to enhance their true beauty.
Patterns. Large-scale prints and loose geometric patterns are still on the rise. From fluid water-colored prints, bold florals, black and white graphic patterns, to photographic and blurred images printed on fabrics-the more visual impact the better!
Furnishings. Mixing the old with the new is a huge trend in 2015. These exciting and fresh combinations of rustic and retro styles will be seen everywhere you look. Mid-century modern chairs, tables, sofas, beds and lighting fixtures will be on the “must have” list for sure!
Warm Metallics. While brass is definitely back, people will also be craving a little warmth from their metal. Expect to see some burnished gold, bronze and copper accessories in the coming year. Fortunately, the trend of mixing your metallics is still very much in so this is the perfect time to get a brushed gold bowl or figurine and see how it fits into the rest of your home.
Mix in Some Culture. The influence of cultures has always had a huge impact on the interior design industry. With the new and fresh interpretations on traditional ethnic designs the possibilities are endless. This cultural impact can be seen not only in the use of color, texture and pattern but it is truly aesthetically pleasing when mixed in with both traditional and contemporary décor.
Design tip: If totally tribal is too bold for you, start with something low commitment like a simple area rug or a few throw pillows.
