A new year is a great excuse to start updating your home interior. All it takes is a few simple changes and you can breathe new life into your familiar surroundings. This year’s interior design trends see the continuation of consumers being concerned with the environment and the impact their purchases make. Eco- friendly furniture is a trend that only gets bigger, and reclaimed wood furniture is the perfect choice as each piece will be unique and filled with history. 2014 interior trends are all about creating a dramatic impact in the home without overdoing it; simplicity is key and sophisticated styles will be around for a long time.
We have put together 5 of this year’s hottest looks for your home interior:
1) Eco- friendly furniture crafted from sustainable and reclaimed woods is now available in modern, quirky styles and in an array of finishes. So, think of the earth when you go furniture shopping! When buying home accessories, remember that they don’t have to be dull just because they are environmentally friendly. Bamboo serving ware has made a huge comeback and is available in lacquered tones of grey, aqua and purple.
2) Rich fabrics are a must-have as this year’s bedroom decor takes a move away from the plain white bed linen from the minimalist era. Instead, it’s time to embrace colour and luxurious fabrics such as velvet and suede.
3) Floral will be huge trend: we aren’t talking old chintz but modern floral arrangements on printed cushions and wallpaper. For a bold approach, why not mix patterns and florals together? This year’s home style is not about everything matching, so don’t be afraid to mix textures, colours and patterns into your space.
4) Natural wood tones have always been popular, and for many years darker tones were the top interior design choice. However, honey and soft caramel tones are now set to be a key trend. This softer look blends with any design style and gives a brighter look to an interior.
5) Vintage and one-off furniture pieces will also be highly sought after. It’s these special pieces that will create focal points and leave your guests asking: ‘where did you get that?’ You can even take this trend a step further and have custom made pieces crafted to suit your space and personality.
