7 Interior Design Trends You’ll See in 2014

It doesn’t take long for word to spread in the world of home decor. January saw many experts spouting predictions for the top design trends this year, and February has already seen many of these predictions come true. If you’re interested in keeping your home on trend, or even looking to buck the trends altogether, check out these 7 ht interior design trends that are bound to pop up all over this year.

1. Saturated Colors and Luxurious Textures

Pieces that offer a visual and tactile experience to homeowners are surging in popularity. There was a time where a royal blue velvet sofa (like this one from Anthropologie) would be seen as tacky, but that time has passed.

2. Earth-Friendly Earth Tones

The last couple years have seen a trend toward modern and industrial looks, especially in the kitchen. 2014 looks to pair the coldness of stainless steel with warmer earth tones in eco-friendly materials like bamboo and cork.

3. Let there be light.

People are looking to incorporate more natural light into their home in 2014. Whether that be through renovations that allow for larger window panels, or simpler measures like swapping heavy drapes for window sheers, there will be a lot of thought put into making the home a more natural setting this year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4. Artful Furniture Arrangements

Popularity of accent furniture, decorative pieces, and other nuances of large spaces have people spending a lot more time planning the arrangement of furniture pieces. Many homeowners are even employing space planning professionals to help perfect this process.

5. Pattern Clashing

This year, homeowners are over the idea of “matchy matchy” decor and are much more comfortable experimenting with patterns. We haven’t seen the last of popular chevron and floral patterns, but it’s likely that they will start to be incorporated more into a larger decor scheme rather than be used as accents.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6. Black Walls

After years of steering clear of dark glamour in most home decor, 2014 is boldly moving toward a more dramatic look. Black walls are replacing the shades of grey seen in previous years, and matched with metallic accents are hardly depressing the style at all.

7. Smart Home

With all of the new smart home technology out there (and at a lower price point than ever before), consumers are looking for new and innovative ways to control the world, or at least their home appliances, from a smartphone. While this isn’t a design trend yet, innovative companies like Savant Systems and Sunset are sure to make it one soon.
