Just like clothing styles and fashion trends change by the year, so do interior decorating trends. Buyers are looking for houses that have the most innovative and popular new decorations and features. Here are some of the hottest interior decorating trends of 2014!
One of the most easily interchangeable design aspects of a house is its furniture. A change to modern, bright, and colorful furniture is being ushered in with 2014. Gray, beige, brown, and white pieces of furniture are becoming a thing of the past. They are being replaced with sofas, chairs, and couches in shades of bright blues, blood oranges, cozy red-violets, and even bold yellows. In addition to these bright and bold new colors on upholstery, new unique textures are becoming more popular as a way to jazz these pieces up. Textured cotton, more formal linen, soft microfiber, elegant chenille, or durable acrylic fibers are all fabric options being utilized by modern interior decorators today. A combination of these unique colors and fabrics make furniture imperative pieces in a chic and trendy styled house.
A drastic interior decorating change that can alter the entire appearance of a house is switching paint color on the walls, even if just in one room. Cool colors, such as those in blush tones, are becoming more popular. Blush tones include very pale shades of pink, and tinted whites. These tones, otherwise considered vintage-inspired, become more modern and trendy when paired with other darker and richer tones. Blush tones contrasted and highlighted by deeper colored accents and furniture, such as olive green and navy blue, create a very modern effect. The softer, blush paint tones can be made better by using these stronger, darker colors on accessories, artwork, upholstery, and small, discrete accents.
Some smaller interior design alterations include wall hangings and decoration. One trend that’s becoming more and more popular are vintage decorative touches. These decorations don’t have to be overly expensive or outrageous, either. Some simple vintage décor might be found at local antique shops, or auction houses. These decorations might include vintage posters, or artsy, antique lamps. Adding these vintage touches to an otherwise modern and contemporary house create an attractive contrasting effect that is gaining popularity.
Another hot trend coming up this year are floral prints. Previously just thought of as a decoration for an older home, floral prints are now becoming a cute and vintage touch to add to your home to make it unique. Adding a few objects with floral prints, like throw pillows, can have a great effect on your home.
Nowadays, buyers want a home that is keeping up with the trendy decorating techniques that are common this year. By making a couple of simple alterations, which may include repainting, adding or taking away certain carefully-chosen pieces of furniture, and adding vintage touches to modern houses, your house will become much easier to sell, and look much more attractive to buyers. Choosing to incorporate some of these hot new interior decorating trends into your home is an easy fix that will greatly increase its appeal and market value.
