January gets our minds racing about the year to come, and 2015 promises to be one of great interiors. The trend to emulate is that of scaling back and simplifying rooms. Editing your rooms will allow your beloved furniture and accessories to take centre stage. By freeing up some extra space you can revitalize your place. Take advantage of the latest and greatest the design world has to offer this year.
1 International Influences 6 Black and/or White
2 Geometry and Angles 7 Natural Details
3 Large Scale Prints 8 Triangles, Checks and Dots
4 Lustrous Surfaces 9 Bold Colours
5 Gold and Copper Metals 10 Mixing Patterns
Let's see how you can incorporate these trends into your home :
Keep your bathrooms and kitchens fresh by sticking with black and white. From floor tiles to back splashes, white will reign this year, but expect to see black making a dramatic impact here as well. These timeless choices for more permanent design elements are wise. Designers and homeowners will strive to create a minimal look with lots of right angles and flat-front kitchen cabinetry. Black and white appliances are also going to be fashionable in 2015.
In the bathroom the standalone tub provides a much needed sculptural element in the modern home. Put a bench in your shower stall for comfort and style. Continue anchoring your design using black and white. This contrasting duo achieves a tailored, classic effect. Always keep it crisp and clean in the bathroom. Gold will be the metal of choice for faucets this year.
International influences will invoke an exotic look in all of your rooms. Consider introducing touches from the Orient and the Middle East. Mixing items from around the world will create a cultured and curated interior. Embrace the modern gypsy style by mixing bold prints, layering patterns and using bright fabrics.
To achieve a balanced look combine sleek, lacquered surfaces with natural wood or concrete. Bold colours are easily grounded with white and black. Incorporate lots of plants like epiphytes (air plants) and groupings of succulents in glass vessels with exposed soil to add that earthy element. Graphic large scale prints will give your home that gallery feel without visually cluttering the space.
Our preferred quirky trend is the nod to all things intergalactic. Outer space will be providing inspiration for textiles and artwork. We think it's out of this world!
