Most interior décor trends come and go, but some remain timeless year after year. Now that 2015 is well under way, a few dominant themes have emerged for interior design. Not surprisingly, we have seen a return to some of the classics in both color and style. Even if you aren’t ready to do a full makeover on your interior space, here are some suggestions for updating your décor with revamped classics.
Get the Blues in 2015
The official Pantone color for 2015 may be Marsala, but as far as designers are concerned, blue is the hottest hue this year. Deep, saturated tones from royal to navy are showing up on walls and furniture, both wood and upholstered. Adding a single blue storage or accent chest can completely change the energy of a tired room. Or try adding a single blue accent wall and oversized sapphire throw pillows to an otherwise neutral living room. In the master bedroom, add calming blue silk shades to bedside table lamps. The result can be utterly enchanting.
The Return of the Library
Tech fatigue has reached a saturation point and the design community has begun to fight back. Elements of the library have begun popping up in design themes from coast to coast. Entertainment walls have given way to bookcases. Books are being used as accessories both in classic vignettes and in exciting new ways. Stacked horizontally, vertically or even diagonally, people are using books as art. The most effective way to incorporate the literary theme into your décor (assuming you aren’t ready to build an entire library wall) is to use two or three vintage tomes as a “booster” underneath a petite table lamp or urn. Or add a classic rolling library ladder as a design element in the office, den or dining room.
A Return to Timeless Design
For the last decade, eclectic décor and modern elements have become ubiquitous, mixed and matched and swapped one for the other. The comfort and ease of traditional furnishings and interior elements have begun to resonate with design professionals as well as consumers. Rich wood, comfortable upholstery and the ample use of leather characterize this style today. Lest you feel this style is too staid for your taste, designers are giving traditional interiors a modern edge by incorporating bright sherbet-colored accents and large, whimsical paintings and wall art.
