Even though we are still firmly in 2013, most interior design shows on the telly and home decor magazines are already starting to look towards 2014 and the biggest interior design trends that are going to be coming down the road.
Of course, only so much can change in the world of design from year to year, but there are going to be a few changes and trends popping up that you can be sure to see over the next few months. Let’s take a look at a few of them.
Art is coming back in a big way. And no, we don’t simply mean just a few paintings hanging on the wall. Design experts are going all out with art installations in 2014. You will be much more likely not notice that the art showcased in homes is going to be larger and a lot more interesting. Many retro and geographic shapes will dominate the scene, and many a living room will be dominated with a strong piece of art hanging on the wall.
We saw the start of the trend this past year, as Pantone introduced emerald green as the Colour of the Year for 2013. As we merge into 2014 expect this trend to continue. Many design experts are predicting blue to be the hot colour over the next twelve months, but there will be plenty of home design and decor experts who will be featuring plenty of pops of bright hues in their design choices.
Mid century modern design and decor is back in a big way. It does make sense, as this look really does grab elements of some of the biggest trends we are looking at in 2014, embracing colour, interesting art, and brass were all big parts of the design during its glory days. And now, designers are bringing back these elements, with a touch of today in look and feel to give a great retro design to homes.
Copper and Brass
Love the look of stainless steel? Well, that trend might be slowly going out the window in favour of copper and brass. Copper was a big trend that emerged in 2013 over the last few months and it is clear that the trend will be continuing into the future. Brass plays well into this trend, as it has a similar look and feel as copper but plays on a different type of hue and has been making a big comeback.
As the year moves into 2014, be sure to keep an eye out for these trends as they will continue to emerge and play an important role in the design elements at the biggest design shows and in the magazines and storefronts for the coming year.
