2014 is so close you can taste it. Chances are, you’ve already begun to formulate your New Year’s Resolutions. Maybe you want to hit the gym more in 2014, or finally clear out all that clutter in your home. If you’re dying to make a change that the whole family can feel good about, why not give your home a redesign for the New Year? We’re discussing the top five home design trends for 2014, which you should be using if you’re hoping to make a serious change.
Purple – The Color of 2014
The color of royalty is now the official color for 2014, which means you should expect it to show up everywhere from the red carpet to the department store pillow aisle. When styling with purple, think luxurious and classy. Rich fabrics, soft golds and burnt oranges pair great with the color.
Animal Print – But Not What You Think
Think less cheetah and more cow hide, but animal prints are going to be showing up in a big way this year. Go for the look with a small area rug or fully commit with a sofa redesign. Either way, make sure you keep the surrounding furniture classic to avoid your home looking like a cattle ranch.
Coastal Living Rooms – From Coast to Relaxing Coast
You’ve always wanted your own beach house and now is your chance to make it happen! Give your living room a coastal vibe using crisp whites, shades of blue and brown, and mix up your prints and patterns. The trick is to keep the room feeling bright and fresh all year long so you always feel like you’re on vacation.
Eclectic Lamps – The Cooler the Better in 2014
Lamps are going to be the “it” accessory for 2014. They’re going bold this year, with graphic shades, cool bases and a ton of different colors. Instantly draw everyone’s eye with a bright and glowing lamp shade. It will make the whole room feel like you had a custom furniture design.
Black and White – Graphic Prints Make Their Mark
Black and white was huge on the runways and department stores in 2013 and 2014 is the year for home design! Huge graphic prints, simple patterns – no matter how you choose to design with it, having a touch of black and white in your home will make any room feel pulled-together and versatile.
