Tired of your old home décor? Want to recreate top interior designs that you see in magazines and the television right at your very own home?
Curious to know what is trending this year?
Interior design trends for 2014 are about chameleon accent décors, a mix and mash up of metal hardware and rich gemstone colours in areas of your home space where one would least expect it.
We have compiled here the top 6 styles that are expected to be hot this year.
Kitchens have long been one of the favourite hangouts at home, and now interior designers are sprucing it up this year to add a bit of glamour to an otherwise ordinary home space.
Avant-garde lighting fixtures, kitchen backsplashes and customised cabinets are being treated to rich gemstone colours, while countertops and wall décor gleam with exotic semi-precious stones, malachite, and agate that give off a dramatic effect.
Dark-coloured wooden furniture has ruled the house for so long. This 2014, lighter, honey-coloured woods such as cherry, oak and walnut for living room spaces and kitchen cabinets are offering a fresh option for many young homeowners who want something new.
Light coloured walls and floorings are also perfect for small houses or condominium units because a dark background tend to make the room even smaller than it is.
Turquoises and Blues
Turquoise and a bevy of blues started sprouting everywhere late last year, and designers are predicting that this trend will continue to take a firm hold this year. Turquoise can be seen on walls, furniture, tables, curtains and upholstery, and even in the smallest design detail in a room.
Vintage Treasure Finds
Vintage décor has never been truly out, but this year expect one-of-a-kind pieces and curious knickknacks to be quite in demand and popular in many home spaces. Designers and homeowners do love being asked by guests about a particular vintage or treasure find, which could also serve as a wonderful party conversation starter.
Chameleon accents and other décor pieces that can be used interchangeably are one of the trends that designers are leaning into this year to create a big impact in a seemingly neutral design space. This means there is not one fixed look or theme in a particular room and can be easily transformed anytime according to the whims of the owner.
A Mix Up of Metals
A tastefully done design of metal mix up of dark or warm gold decorative hardware or bronze with silver or stainless steel is not an easy feat, but if it’s done successfully is something to behold in any home space. Nonetheless, top designers are betting on this style trend to grow even bigger this year.
