Every season, as tired trends move to the back burner, new trends rise to take theirplace. From paint colours to colour accents and materials, these are our prediction of some home decorating trends that will dominate in 2014.
Metals and retro have been popular for many seasons past and we expect this to continue as Australian's bring the cafe culture into their homes and continue the trend toward indoor-outdoor living.
Bright and vibrant colours will replace neutral and muted hues. Adding pops of saturated colours to your walls or furniture will bring energy and warmth to your home.
Art is in. Whether it be traditional paintings or abstract pieces, in 2014 the bigger and more interesting the better. Create a focal point out of your art either with its size or placement in the room. Don’t ever be afraid to go bold. Art made out of unusual materials is also both beautiful and attention drawing.
Enough with the plain, this season turn to elegant and graceful fabrics. Standard fabrics will be replaced with lavish fabrics such as velvet and silk. This goes for all rooms, try a silk bedspread, or velvet pillows to add an elegant flare to your living space.
This season, mix and match whether with through colours, materials or styles. Look for old, period pieces to mix in with your new furniture to give your room an interesting, exclectic look. Antique and retro furniture is not only aesthetically pleasing, but also sometimes handmade and of superior quality and when combined, with modern pieces, works fantastically.
