Disclaim this puppy with “THESE ARE MY PREDICTIONS. DOESN’T MEAN JACK.”
Okay…so that disclaimer is out of the way, I wanted to talk future when it comes to interior trends. This is my prediction post….I am not a designer….every style is different….don’t get your heart broken if nothing in your house is on this list…that doesn’t mean anything….also, almost nothing on this list is in my house 🙂 These are things I see going all the way in 2015…possibly 2016…maybe my mind will change after I have this baby…I am pretty hormonal right now.
TEXTURE! You must shout that out loud because I think it is huge this year. I won’t even buy a pillow without feeling it and textural elements are super important in 2015. Speaking of texture, braids, twists, fringe, eyelets, and lace are gonna soon replace the pom poms and tassels of 2014. I am predicting that. When it comes to prints, animal prints (think leopard, dalmation, even zebra) are becoming more mainstream and I think they will go from designer status to full blown trending status this year. Other huge prints this year will be large florals paired with stripes (trust me…this needs to be in every home), buffalo check (or it’s baby sister….aka gingham) and plaids. I think all of these will be coming out in fresh color schemes and feel really NEW in homes. Watch for it on HGTV 🙂
When it comes to colors, I really think jewel tones are gonna be big….especially if you mix them together for a real punch in the mouth of color. On the other side of the card, I also see people literally falling all over themselves to use coral, mint and gold in their homes. It is a really feminine but not too prissy color scheme that I think gals will use in their homes. To balance out all that femme mental (is that a thing?! it is now.) I think that the industrial vibe is still gonna be going strong and with that comes live edge wood, zinc and a steel gray that feels newer than the muted basic or warm gray of 2014. Seriously…zinc is gonna be the new butcher block. Also….wood floors everywhere are gonna see makeovers. I love me a dark chocolate wood floor but I see a huge push toward ashy woods and lighter floors….not yellow based but everything light and bright. Keep your eyes also peeled for boho influence (even the preppies will use it in a very Serena + Lilly kinda way) and dark cabinetry is coming back but with lighter counters to keep things bright.
Okay….so that is my prediction list for the newer trends of this year. Hopefully I can take my own predictions and use them in my own home! That would be cool…ya know…to be trendy and all 🙂
