Interior Design Trends #ontrend Leave a reply What’s trending? #interiordesigntrends Geometric and abstract shapes are popping up everywhere both in graphic design and interior design. “Gem shaped accents make for an easily up-gradable accessible moment in any room” said Nate Berkus (Huffington Post). A great way to play up this trend and add some dimension to your room is to use geometrical shaped mirrors as wall art. Position them above a couch or in a darker corner to add some texture and light. A continuing kitchen design trend is open shelving. Try using rustic wood boards as open shelving for kitchen items or choose a more modern look with simple white or black shelves that will showcase your dining sets. Open kitchen shelving looks great with matching white dishes with pops of color such as colored vase or bouquet of flowers Photo: Food 52 Mid century modern is hot right now! The clean lines of mid century furniture blended with the big and bold artwork that is trending now, make for a sophisticated and timeless living space. A great way to incorporate mid-century looks is by taking a piece of furniture that you are tired of or needs some revamping. Hardware and home improvement stores sell mid century table legs or furniture legs (Buzzfeed). Adding these legs to a dated dresser can instantly transform a piece of furniture into a midcentury conversation piece. Investing in an entire set of patterned or bold living room seating can be daunting. A better way to add color and bold patterns to a room is by using statement chairs. Keep the beige, gray, black or white couch as a neutral backdrop, but bring in a bold statement chair to add a nice splash of color to the mix. This is less of a commitment and ensures that the room will not look too busy. (Telegraph). LifeSimplybyAnnie A trend that has been around for a while, and is continuing to grow, and will hopefully continue to expand, is the sustainability trend. Society is increasingly realizing the value that sustainable home design and decor has for the community and the Earth. Sustainability is no longer a trend, it is a movement towards improving our lives and the lives of those in the future. Your part in the sustainability movement can be as simple as using re-purposed materials in your home design or decor. Try using re-purposed pallets as a platform for a bed or build raised bed gardens using scrap wood.
