Yes, the New Year is nearly here and we are all excited to see what it will bring. If you are anything like me, you’ll be looking at some of the latest trends in interior design, and giving your home a bit of a makeover. Well, have I got some great news for you – 2015 is all about getting creative and allowing yourself to be a bit of dreamer.
With some outside-the-box design elements and strong colors, you’ll quickly make your interior stand out, and that is the whole point. The upcoming year isn’t afraid of being a bit flashy, so treat your home like you would a cool date – treat it to some excitement, but keep everything tasteful and classy. With that being said, let’s look at a few great design ideas that you can try out.
A bit of bling for your bathroo
While a crisp and clean, stainless steel and light colors design may be an aesthetically pleasing look for a lot of people, the truth of the matter is that you aren’t running a hospital or a futuristic outpost on a faraway planet, so you can go with something a bit more livelily. Gold or bronze faucets, even sculpted ones, are a nice change of pace, and so are elegant towel racks, soap holders and hooks in the same colors.
Exciting tile designs for bathrooms and kitchens
While we are on the subject of redecorating the bathroom, brick-shaped ceramic tiles are becoming an increasingly popular option. They can help break up the basic color pattern you have going, and you can use interesting combinations like large square tiles on the floor and smaller brick-shaped tiles on the walls. In the kitchen, you can use these for the backsplash, and they will go well with stone or wood countertop materials.
Get creative with wallpapers
Yes, you heard that right: wallpapers are back in business. A lot of the old home decor features are making a big comeback, only this time around there a lot more options to choose from. With a wide variety of unique designs and color combinations, you can really let your imagination run wild. Whether you are looking for a more retro elegant style, or something a bit more modern and edgy, there is wallpaper design out there that will cover your needs.
Add in some retro swag
The retro look is what you should be gunning for, and although some new trends are a bit crazier and more unique than others, that vintage midcentury modern aesthetic definitely looks good when incorporated well into a modern home. As with anything, moderation is key here – you don’t want your home to start looking like a time capsule from the early 70-ies, a bit of retro here and there will do you just fine.
In the year 2015 we will see a big comeback of older styles and sensibilities, and combining these with a variety of modern elements in a tasteful and fun way can be quite a rewarding project for homeowners.
