With 2015 just beginning, now’s the time to take a look at your home’s style and see if it’s time to make a change. While certain mainstays of interior design are definitely still strong going into the new year, other trends, patterns, colors, and materials are expected to be on the rise in the coming months. So, before these trendy styles explode in popularity and price, make sure to start planning some of these hot new updates, upgrades, and remodels to welcome in a new year of comfort and beauty!
Shine with Metallic Accents, Hardware, and Fixtures
One of the most affordable remodels for 2015 is a refocusing on accent pieces toward rich metallic tones: deep coppers, bronze, gold, and even crisp silver. This is a major departure from the stainless steel saga of the past few years and can beautifully lend a classy elegance to catch the eye. Trendsetters recommend a careful hand with these accents since too much can overwhelm the room but with a bit of creativity and an eye for design homeowners can install all the stunning new hardware, fixtures, and accents without having to turn to professionals for assistance.
All Things Eco for Materials, Colors, and Power Sources
As with last year, 2015 style and innovation owes a lot to the eco-friendly, organic movement. You can expect to see fashion, technology, and interior design all influenced by “green” ideas this year with everything from the newest Pantone color palette to natural components like solar energy systems, energy efficient windows, and more usage of plant life and recycled materials rising quickly to be the most popular design trends across the country.
Throw Off the Uniform Style! Surprises and Fusions are In!
Your home’s style should represent your personality and interests above all else. Which is why the old, dated need to have a couch that matches the bookcase and a carpet that matches the curtains is over! Give your home a bold, dramatic look and feel with a combination of retro styles, modern comforts, and versatile designs that range from industrial and ethnic to modern and natural. Have fun with your home’s style and your home’s style is sure to be fun!
Dare to Pair Dynamic Colors
Classic color pairings like black and white are getting an update in the coming year with combinations like blue and green appearing everywhere from the kitchen to the bedroom. As a matter of fact, HouseBeautiful points to two separate shades of blue as being the best color accents of 2015! Of course, this color palette is in keeping with the nature elements mentioned above which helps to root the style of 2015 in surprising combinations of earth tones.
