Top 5 Spring 2015 Trends for the Home

Home Decor Trends to Try This Year

Today marks the vernal equinox which means Spring is here! Despite the actual weather calling for snow flurries here, we are delighted about the prospect of warm weather and bright days ahead. We are also giddy about all things new in color, fashion, and fun trends for the new season. Here is a list of our 5 favorite design movements to try this Spring.

Bold Blue

Marsala was declared the color of the year, but we have to say that bold blue is stealing the show. Rich Mediterranean blues are adding a regal tranquility to every room of the house. From accent walls to furniture, and kitchen cabinets to accessories, blue is a major trend in home decor this season.

Industrial

Inspired by chic lofts, artist studios, and the juxtaposition of finery with streamlined modern spaces, industrial decor is a contemporary trend to watch. Lighting, in particular, designed with a utilitarian feel that has been adapted with interesting finishes and unexpected scale, is adding a refined beauty to decor. The trend extends to furniture and wall decor, with sheet metal, steel, and exposed rivets creating drama.

Geometrics

Mathematics is the language of the universe and geometrics create a contemporary and balanced look. We love the sophistication of clean lines, uncomplicated forms and chic shapes. HGTV has declared Geometrics as the front-running trend of 2015 and we could not agree more!

Free Standing Tubs

Beautiful bathrooms featuring free standing tubs are giving us bathroom envy this year! Whether featuring modern lines, vintage stylings, or a transitional mix of both, some gorgeous tubs are taking center stage these days. What a beautiful spa-like decor idea for those who love to take baths and have the space for a tub that doesn’t double as a shower.

Warm Metals Copper

We love shiny things! Metallics have been captivating home decor and the trend continues to prosper this season. Shimmering gold, warm copper, and beautiful brass bring a touch of luxury to any space, radiating the light of the room. Pendant lamps, mirrors, furniture and wall decor, even sinks and hardware are all benefiting from the beauty of metallic finishes.

Tips for Achieving On-Trend Designs Using the 2015 Pantone Color of the Year

Marsala Pantone Color of the Year 2015

Marsala, the 2015 Pantone Color of the Year, is a rich and complex hue that seamlessly blends both regal and earthy elements. The new Pantone color is named after the fortified wine that complements the most satisfying of meals, and with minimal effort, incorporating Marsala in the home can make any space feel cozy and on-trend.

“Marsala is unique in its versatility,” says Paula Berberian, our Creative Director. “While previous Pantone colors of the year like Radiant Orchid and Emerald added a bold element to home interiors, Marsala is a grounding force that is subtle enough to pair with both dramatic and muted design schemes.” Below, Berberian shares her tips for incorporating Marsala in your home to create a chic and cohesive look.

Embrace the Earthiness “The red-brown undertones in Marsala serve as the ideal accent for earthy accessories,” notes Berberian.  “From reclaimed wood shelving to bowls filled with beechwood, decorating with natural elements is both affordable and aesthetically pleasing,” adds Berberian. Marsala is an grounded hue, with beautiful purple and red undertones.

Pantone 2015 Color of the Year

Get Playful with Prints Traditional prints are making a major comeback thanks to updated interpretations inspired by cultures far and wide. Although toile was originally introduced in the 18th Century, the print continues to exude a regal air, especially when executed in rich Marsala. Above, a vintage print is updated with modern scale and a beautiful marsala palette.

Tie in Textures “Utilizing interesting textures throughout the home can make your design feel more curated and personal,” says Berberian. Although textured accessories like throw pillows and woven rugs create coziness, an intricate wall covering can either give the illusion of texture through pattern or add real feel depending on the materials. Wall décor can add an upscale element to intimate spaces like the bedroom or living room. Above, fun geometrics lend a modern flair to Marsalas rich coloring. Rustic hardwood paneling, such as the Heim Brown Distressed Wood Panel from Brewster Home Fashions, creates warmth in unexpected spaces like the bathroom or mudroom, and organic details further elevate the design.

A Fresh Palette of Color Trends for the New Year

MarsalaEach year we look forward to a new set of emerging colors to guide fashion, accessories and home decor. This year we have been reveling in a vivid and inspiring palette, dominated by the Pantone 2014 color of the year, Radiant Orchid. Looking ahead to Spring 2015, when the runways light up with fresh trends and fun themes for the year ahead, we see a palette of softer shades on the horizon. The color of the Year for 2015 has been declared Marsala, named for the rich Italian wine. The hue is warm and comforting, with earthy undertones of red wine. It is elegant, tasteful, and translates well to a wide array of sophisticated accents for the home, design and fashion textiles. Learn more about this grounded and welcoming hue from the Pantone color experts themselves.

Have you ever wondered “who picks these colors, anyways? What gives them the right to declare the hottest colors of the future?” Well, its a fair question, but it is amazing how the true color experts have made color trend prediction into a science. They study design movements from around the globe and work with groups of talented and creative thought leaders to come up with a surprisingly accurate picture of emerging color patterns. Here is the rest of the Pantone palette, followed by the predictions from the Trend Theme committee at Heimtextil 2015. Note the consistency of soft, natural hues with attractive neutrals and the same rich blue – and of course marsala! Coincidence? We think not.

Heimtex Color Trends Heimtex color trends 2015

The palette is influenced by layered vegetable dyes for new natural shades and the refreshing simplicity of stepping outside into “plain air”. These speak to an escape from the stress of overly-complex, hyper connected technology of modern life. Soft hues soothe the mind and create a sanctuary. Many of the colors are named for whole foods, like strawberry,and toasted almond.

2535-20674_Room

The Tom Ford Summer Collection is a perfect match to this modern wallpaper that fuses a vibrant red, soft orange and warm beige for a sizzling brilliance on walls.

Most of us wait all year for those first signs of summer…warmth, sunshine, long beach days, colorful sunsets and updating ones wardrobe from drab winter tones to fresh, happy shades, including switching out that dark nail tone for a more vivid alternative. So why not do the same with your décor?

DL30454_Room

A bright pink and orange shade as seen in the Essie Summer Collection, matched with its ivory and grey counterparts, make these energetic colors appear light and airy on walls.

If you’re afraid of adding to much color, or worried about how these electrifying shades will actually appear on walls, consider creating a feature wall as an alternative. This gives you the freedom to pick a bold design while making sure your room doesn’t appear too busy or chaotic.

2535-20609_Room

Consider pairing a fearless red with a coppery orange as seen in Butter London’s collection, for a wonderful mix of color and sass.

Sunny Hues: Decorating with Yellow!

“Painting your walls yellow is like creating a room full of sunshine.” ~Suzanne Moutis, Executive Editor for Style at Home (image via houzz)

Yellow is the color of spring and summer, of sunshine and warmth, sunflowers and daffodils. Being the most radiant of all the colors on the spectrum, it is known to inspire happiness and optimism as well as creativity and fun. With an array of lemon-infused decor ideas, learn how you can easily bring sunny decor to life in your own space (big or small!).

With a variety of different shades, yellow can actually have contrasting personalities. Pale hues are balanced and soft and often serve as a neutral tone. Their soothing nature tends to invoke a feeling of serenity and relaxation. Bright hues on the other hand are loud and bold and can be overpowering if used excessively. These colors tend to work as perfect accents to a room through chairs, linens and even bookshelves.

Yellow can also be a fabulous compliment to a collection of other shades, blue and black being a favorite. With a longstanding history of being a classic color combination, yellow and blue can inspire a nautical beach look with navy tones and sunshine hues or can also offer a more eclectic style with turquoise shades and toned down lemon hues. Both combos are a chic and elegant décor choice.

A room styled in a yellow and black color scheme can be both modern and cozy. Adding in a warm hue like yellow softens the harsh and overpowering nature of a dark bold color. By adding in fresh pops of white, this beautiful blend can create a room that is as happy as it is polished.

Hampton Style: Airy Linens & Fresh Blues

Hampton Style Inspiration

Imagine yourself…toes in the sand, a warm summer’s breeze on your back, the sound of the ocean in the distance – this is the epitome of Hampton style. It’s about mixing clean, fresh hues with rustic outdoor elements, and surprisingly with wallpaper it’s not that hard to achieve!

Hampton style originates from the popular seaside vacation destination along Eastern Long Island in New York and tends to embody both a classic and contemporary décor style offset by natural and rustic influences. Colors tend to include both fresh and neutral tones that work to open up your homes interior to a light and airy feeling throughout. This makes linen décor and upholstery a popular choice both for its natural and casual look as well as its effortless appeal.

By starting with a neutral, linen textured wallpaper as seen from above, the stage is already set to create that perfect Hampton style getaway. By adding some imperfect touches such as driftwood accents or natural details that may include plants, shells or sea glass displayed in a jar, you have created the perfect combination of classic style meets rustic tranquility.

Adding a pop of light blue to décor is another way to achieve that breezy and serene vibe that seems to follow Hampton style. White and blue combos tend to bring ocean elements to the forefront with hues that remind of us glistening blue skies or the rippling enchantment of the ocean.

Dominant colors, patterns and finishes emerge and we cannot help but be swept up in a la mode fascinations and artistic expression of the design world. Here are a few of our observations from the halls and runways this year.

Spring 2014 Color Trends for home Decor

 

Decor Color Trends 2014

Decor Color Trends 2014 as Observed by our Creative Director Paula Berberian at Maison et Objet

Colors! Pantone are the color authorities and our go-to resource for color trends.This year the color of the year for 2014 is Radiant Orchid and we have already seen the hue start to take off in everything from pillows to jewelry, wall decor, and clothes. Striking an equilibrium with the imaginative purple hue, pretty pastels like hemlock green, placid blue and soft violet are balanced with dazzling blue with a cobalt tendency, celosian orange, freesia yellow and cayenne red. Sand and paloma grey bring thoughtful neutrals to the mix for a sophisticated poise. We were certainly seeing a lot of orange on the runways at FWNY last week, as well as delicate blushing pinks and purples and olive greens with plenty of black, grey, cream and white. Walking the halls of Maison, pink was the belle of the ball. Deep coral pink tones, as well as mid-tone pink pastels were gracing home decor products across the boars. Mid tone pastels including sage, yellow and pale blues were also popular, in addition to plenty of timeless taupes, beige and grey neutrals.

Prints! Western prints and themes have been picking up traction. We have been seeing more antlers and quirky taxidermy influences in decor, as well as global versions of Southwestern prints. Think Ralph Lauren American cabin inspirations, with plaids, checks and ropes as well as animal pelts. Dhurries, colorful area rugs indiginous to India, were prevalent, layering floors with a mix of worldly patterns and contemporary prints. We are also seeing a lot of Tropicana inspirations like pink flamingos, bananas and palm trees. Subtle retro looks that have been simplified for a sophisticated, modern appeal are everywhere. In the same category, Geometrics reminisce on the 80′s, but with a fresh perspective. Flower prints took on a pixelated, blurry look for a futuristic yet pretty effect. Baroque influences were also evident across all sorts of home decor looks. Cultured, ethnic inspirations are still very much in. Beautiful blooming florals, watercolor florals and elegant textures were prevalent, as well as traditional designs with new techniques.

Building Materials, Textiles and Finishes: brass was plentiful, and gold, as well as heaps of copper and dark metals, along with feathers, wood, and stone, including marble and agate and chunky knits. Painted furniture is chic. Innovative DIY types are upcycling pieces that may have gone unnoticed with fresh colors. This trend has emerged way beyond white, with bright turquoise, chartreuse, yellow and bubblegum pink reinventing even the plainest of jane furniture into desirable pieces.

More Notable Trends: Accessories, especially lamps, were designed with soft faceted angles, like cut gems with obscure shapes. Pendant lamps continued to grow in popularity, now in even more colors. Wallpaper, including graphic designs, geometrics, glamour prints and trompe l’oeil effects like marble were taking walls to new levels of captivation. Dimensional accent effects like beads, sequins, and raised inks were also popping up on walls and textiles for a heightened interest in decor. Typography and graphic branding design, like retro neon signs, ironic logos and street-smart snowboarding and skateboarding graffiti style words were featured on the runways and in decor, too.

An unusual shade, Radiant Orchid brings serenity when incorporated throughout the home, and gives interiors an updated look.  Inspired by designs around the world, radiant orchid is complemented by a wide array of accents and undertones, making it a pleasure to execute in your own home.

“Radiant Orchid is a totally different direction from last year’s Pantone Color of the Year, Emerald,” says Paula Berberian, a Creative Director of Brewster Home Fashions for WallPops.  “The softer shade makes quite a statement when paired with neutrals like taupe and cream, and is even more striking alongside brighter hues like turquoise and yellow.” Here are some tips on how to incorporate this dazzling hue into your decor.

Create a Feature Wall

It’s often intimidating to introduce a new color into your home, so starting on a smaller scale makes it easier to take the plunge. Instead of dressing an entire room in Radiant Orchid, focus on just one area to test out the shade. Choose which wall serves best as the center of attention, often the dining room provides an ideal arena. Pictured above, the Pandora Purple Botanical Vines wallpaper by Kenneth James from Brewster Home Fashions creates an enchanted accent.  After adding the ravishing wallpaper, which features swirling orchid vines, keep the rest of the design minimal so your Radiant Orchid accent wall will become the highlight of the room.

Add Accessories

Accessories like throws, pillows and rugs can quickly turn any space into a coordinated design. Subdued colors such as grey, cream and taupe work well in the bedroom, but can often come up short when you are trying to create a bold design. Incorporate soft blankets, small pieces of furniture like the chair above, and textured decorative pillows in Radiant Orchid for a touch of sophistication and style.

Focus on Florals

The 2014 color of the year is a vivid tribute to one of the most coveted types of orchid blossoms. One of the best ways to integrate lush radiant orchid into your home is with a real plant!  With tropical leaves and exotic blooms, you simply cannot go wrong with a fresh orchid plant in any room. You can also fill vases with cut flowers to infuse a luxurious and invigorating pop of purple into and space.
