5 Top Home Trends for 2014
The influence for the 5 Top Home Trends for 2014 were also seen on the Runways at the recent New York Fashion Week. Fashion and Interior Design correlate so beautifully, we love to see how they inspire and mimic each other!
1.) Asian Influences
The history and power of Asian influences in the design world is long standing. Bold Eastern inspired fabrics were spotted on the runways and are taking shape in interior designer living spaces around the country. Layering with color, pattern and texture is easy and fun to do with this exotic trend as Designer Amy Lau shows below.
2.) Graphic Black and White
Black and White in geometric shapes takes the simple color combination to a different level. Artwork and accessories help make this trend fun and unique instead of boring and overdone. Try artwork with bold geometric shapes, vases, pillows, rugs, the opportunities are endless!
3.) Architectural White
Just as a crisp, white structured button up allures a sense of class and style, so does a sleek minimal white kitchen as seen in the picture below by Palm Beach designer David Piscuskas. As we saw in last weeks post, in the kitchen is especially where we’ll see this trend occur!
4.) Pastel Tones
All of next year’s color trends come together here for a trend of its own! Pastel pinks, purples, blues and greens look great by themselves or together as you can see in the picture below by designer Gene Meyer! A happy spring feeling is a great choice for an entryway in the home of a chic bachelorette.
5.) Fun Fringe
Fun and Fringe go together like PB&J. Try incorporating the look in small amounts at home like this Turkish fringe rug by designer Christopher Gow, or pillows for the right amount of texture without overwhelming the space.
