What's On Trend for 2014?

There are a couple of key trends that people have been talking about.  Taking a cue from the fashion world and reacting to be opposite of the existing trends.

Interchangeable Accents: Instead of settling on one fixed look, people will opt for chameleon decor.  Starting with a neutral palette, having a versatile neutral base means you can use big-impact accents to easily change up a room or mix up a trend.

Lighter woods: Maybe as a reaction to all the dark tones and other rustic woods we’ve been seeing in furniture for so long. Furniture with lighter, honey-color woods will start reappearing and taking center stage.  Woods such as walnut, oak, and cherry will add that fresh touch.

A Bit of Glitz: After the strong industrial and rustic look, people are going to start thinking about glamour.  Sparkle is going to make its way back into living rooms and bedrooms.  You will also find it in unexpected places like the kitchen. 

Floral Blossoming: Although floral and chintz fabric are staples of home design, the return to vintage means old-school designs are making a comeback. Vintage prints and modern takes on floral classics will emerge in the Spring.

The Decorating Blues: Although the color of the year is Radiant Orchid, you will be spotting blue hues.  From navy toteal, the design community is still infatuated with this every so classic and functional colors.
