We are seeing some beautiful new trends in home interior design this year. Things like all white kitchens, open shelving and barn doors are fading into the background, while bold colors, heavier and more plentiful cabinetry and curved furniture are taking center stage. Take a trip with us and explore some of the new (and some not so new) trends that you should try and incorporate into your own home decor.
With the release of Pantone’s Color of the Year, Ultra Violet, we are noticing a host of complementary tones, creating colorful, bold, jeweled palettes in the home. Deck out a room in your favorite hues, try a subtler shade or play it safe by introducing jeweled tones in small ways like throw pillows, artwork or accent furniture.
Brass is Back
While popular last year, and seen frequently in mixed metal displays, brass is standing out this year on its own. Seen in everything from sculpture to mirrors to cabinet hardware to integral elements on furniture, there are endless ways to bring the warmth of brass into your home.
