Trends

What is bubbling under in interiors now? The answer is  – lots of things! The safe answer is still “Anything Goes” but there are variations.

Still hanging on from recent trends:

• From the catwalk – block colour

• Style your home like a Hotel – never goes out of fashion

• Indoor meets outdoor – the more merged the better

New for 2014:

• Kitchen embellishments – add some personality

• Playfulness  – with accessories

• Graphic and geometric prints and patterns – wallpaper

• Modern Bohemia – with an ethnic twist

• Copper – it’s everywhere in lighting

• Turquoise – or almost mint

And ones I’m not so sure about:

• Hide on furnishings – too many cowhide handbags

• Honey- toned wood – just simply wrong!

There you have it – and now that you are in the know, you’ll recognise all of these trends around you in shops, magazines, fashion, hotels and bars. Thanks to Cult Furniture http://www.cultfurinture.com for the Vegas lights I’ve used in the title graphic. Who wants to be a slave to fashion, but it is nice to know what direction the industry is headed in this year.
