MAKE A STATEMENT WITH LIGHTING
Unique statement-making light fixtures are a hot trend! Bring back the vintage Italian Murano chandeliers and let there be light! Add a bold floor lamp to your living room and suddenly it’s a focal point. Personalize bedrooms with architectural light fixtures. Adding a dash of excitement in a neutral and modern space and does double-duty as a piece of beautiful art to be admired when not illuminated.
STAY CALM AND DESIGN ON
For their calming effect, earth tones remain a strong interior design trend and have been over the last few years. From various shades of taupe, earthy greens and browns, to pinks, look for these hues in paint, wallpaper and furniture. An important association with nature and bringing it inside is a prevailing design trend. Some designers are pairing the neutral tones with silver accents to bring a glint of shine and add sophistication to any space.
SILVER AND IRON ACCENTS
Gold and bronze are out. Silver and iron are in. The trend is moving toward silver and iron decorative bowls anchoring sideboards and coffee tables. Look for silver and iron design details on furniture, such as decorative cabinet handles, as well as in décor such as candlesticks, mirrors and lamp bases. This a great way to incorporate this trend, without making it a permanent fixture in your home.
TEXTURED TILES CREATE INTEREST
Choosing tiles can be overwhelming and it’s easy to go simple and monochromatic. But, if you follow the trends, textured tiles are having a moment! Installed as flooring, backsplashes and even around showers and fireplaces, textured tiles are beautiful displays of craftsmanship, as well as colour and pattern, depending on what you choose, and can make a space feel organic, hand-crafted and inspired.
DESIGN YOUR DREAM OFFICE
If you haven’t already designed yourself a dream office, now is the time! Whether it’s a nook or a full room, dedicated workspaces are on trend and adding some flair and multifunction to any space is a must-have. Including elements that make work comfortable is just the beginning. Art that inspires will improve productivity. More and more, living rooms are including a workspace and even kitchen islands can be designed to include USB ports for technology charging. Designing your dream office can be more than a trend, it can be a space designed just for you.
FIND TRENDS THAT SPEAK TO YOU
Not all trends will jive with your personal style and preferences. Researching trends and taking time to find interior design inspiration should be one of the best parts of designing your new home! It’s important to find features, finishes, design and décor that you love, as that will truly enhance your living spaces and make your house feel like your home.
