With a new year, it’s not only time for a new you, but time to rejuvenate your home, and what better time to do so in the January sales! Depending on your home décor, ages and style will vary what trend you go for this 2015. We’ve scouted the fashion bibles to find the most promising trends, colours and patterns for this coming year.
Feels the Blues
Different shades of blue are set to become this year’s big colour! So if you haven’t already get with the blues. Experiment with different shades combined together to give a ‘sea’ look – pastels for the bathroom and bright hues for the kitchen, all will complement white washed cabinets and solid oak coffee tables.
Bring the Outside In
2015 is the year of natural materials, stone, wood, metal and glass are all dominating the modern interior trends. Try to bring into the home walls, features and even paintings of outdoor materials – or even just try brightening up your hoe with plants, bushes and herb gardens (for the kitchen).
Wallpaper that Wows
One of the quickest, easiest and cheapest ways to spice up your home is by adding a touch of funky wallpaper! It depends how adventurous you are to way style and colours you go for but the critics are claiming that wallpaper in the kitchen is going to be a big hit in 2015! A simple way to add interesting character to your cooking zone.
It has also been suggested that next year we will see wallpaper in unexpected places! Such as quirky spaces in hallways, in photo frames and even on ceilings to create a striking colour pop. Get ahead of the trend this year and get bold and brave with pattern choices!
Beautiful Black is Back
It is always in fashion – whether its clothes, colour or home interior, it is just a colour that doesn’t not go out of fashion. If you are so keen on a clinical all-white kitchen when why don’t you take a look at black? Black makes a strong, sleek statement, and we spend so much time in our kitchens people want to the feel luxurious.
Colour of 2015
Pantone colour of the year has been reviled at Marsala, Leatrice Eiseman, the Executive Director, Pantone Colour Institute states that “Marsala enriches our mind, body and soul, exuding confidence and stability. Marsala is a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in to its embracing warmth.” It looks like the colour of fortified wine, this tasteful hue embodies the satisfying richness of a fulfilling meal while its grounding red-brown roots emanate a sophisticated, natural earthiness.
The colour is equally appealing to men and women, one that is an earthy shade of red with a bit of sophistication. A matte finish highlights Marsala’s organic nature while adding a sheen conveys a completely different message of glamour and luxury.
Complementing oak furniture as well as hues of cream and tones of pastel green, silver and gold! It’s an extremely flexible colour. Bringing the cosy weather of autumn in to the home all year round, especially if you have an open fire, or fire places it will look stunning in contrast to the licking flame of the fire.
