If you’re carving out room in next year’s budget for home upgrades, consider incorporating some of the trends set to fuel the design industry. For 2015, the Delta Faucet Company points to natural aesthetics, bold motifs and streamlined style. How do you turn those abstract trends into concrete home improvements? Get started with these tips:
Organic shapes, woods washed with color, powdery surfaces and uneven edges – the natural trend continues to gain favor among home design enthusiasts. Look for overstated colors found in nature, such as blurred bronze, worn copper or oxidized tones. Integrate softer hues into the home with earth tones such as soft gray, sky and sand.
Inspiration: Transform a stained piece of wood into a kitchen countertop, or incorporate stag horn ferns into a wall mount.
Simply put, this trend has an outgoing, courageous disposition. Look for feminine curves paired with boisterous colors, such as subtle creams next to loud lace or robust oversized floral patterns.
Pretty and practical is the name of the game.
Inspiration: Showcase your favorite print in a large frame for a beautiful living room backdrop, or collect a variety of frames in different finishes and shapes to construct a unique home gallery.
Simplistic design paired with angled blocking results in a balanced and clean environment. Combine geometric profiles with luxury and warmth by pairing tempered metals, such as a clean copper, with marble.
Inspiration: Increase bath space by mounting wall units with steel frames for a clean, structured look.
