Spring is here, and it’s time to breathe new life into your home interior with a fresh new look for 2015. This year has brought some stunning new looks ranging from deep, jewel tones splashed over walls and woodwork to simple, contemporary furniture in soft hues. 2015 has also seen some unusual design combinations such as rustic wooden dining tables paired with ultra-modern chairs and tableware. Whether you are planning a complete home makeover or just want to spruce up your den, the following design trends will help you transform your home into a more beautiful living space.
Wood is one of the most versatile materials as it comes in hundreds of different textures, shades and thicknesses making it ideal for just about any theme. Blonde wood furniture gives a light, modern feel to your home and is a great way to open up small spaces. The trick with light colored wood is to add a few small pieces such as a mirror frame, bar stools or a coffee table. Don’t go overboard with blonde wood furniture or your home could end up looking like an Ikea showroom. Driftwood furniture is a great way to add some natural touches to your home, and you can pick up some really stunning pieces online. Instead of hanging a mirror or picture frame on your main wall, try a large piece of salvaged wood for a more modern alternative.
Minimalism is back, but this time it’s dark, dinghy and achingly trendy. Forget chrome and glass furniture on a bright white background, 2015 minimalism is washed-out pastel tones paired with ash grey, chocolate brown and army green. Distressed woodwork paired with statement pieces such as a retro leather sofa is a great way to achieve the moody look. Furniture Plus has some master bedroom furniture for sale in dark wood tones that look fantastic against dusty pink walls. Be sure to include plenty of mood lighting in the form of oversized floor lamps or spotlights.
The deep blue of the Aegean Sea adds a touch of luxury to your home and works well with soft pinks or a bright white background. According to House Beautiful, the bright blue shades that cover the tops of the churches on the picturesque island of Santorini are the perfect rich tones to turn your home into a Mediterranean paradise. If you’re lucky enough to live in a grand old Victorian home with high ceilings, then painting your walls in deep blue tones is a great way to embrace this trend. Those living in small apartments should stick to adding a pop of color in the form of a rug, throw or scatter cushions to avoid making your rooms appear smaller.
Sectional sofas are also making a comeback for 2015 complete with overstuffed cushions and soft, fleecy throws. Vintage-style bathtubs have also been popping up with some savvy designers placing them in the master bedroom. However you decide to decorate your home this spring, make sure you take advantage of some of the exciting new trends of 2015.
