Greenery and Botanicals
One of the most common trends these days in interior designing is to bring the green outdoors into homes to create an authentic sense of feeling to the living spaces. One can use houseplants, textures, colours, materials to reflect a greenery filled ambience to your home. Interior design experts suggest transforming your home in into a beautiful palette with flourished shades of green and botanic patterns. By adding green shades and offsetting it with metallic accents and dusky wooden furniture will add a luxurious and yet fresh feel to the living space.
A Touch of Eclectic Accents & Furniture
The trend of matching everything in the décor and design philosophy has gone. Interior designers have now moved to adding a touch of eclectic designs, where they resort to the use of similar feeling or visually weighing accents or furniture to coordinate with the interiors, even though they may not be fundamentally the same items. Such a philosophy of having an eclectic design by incorporating a unique piece of décor into the living space will make the entire design scheme not look out of order or unbalanced.
Adding a Bit of Luxury with Marble
Marble is associated with luxury and is still the one of the most sought after material in several interior design projects. It is a very simple way to bring a touch of luxury to your home interiors. Although it is a bit expensive, one cannot help but notice the elegance and grandeur it brings to the living space of your homes. If the budget for the solid marble tiles or furniture exceeds your plans, you can go in for alternatives like the use of wallpapers or ceramic tiles with marble effect.
Gone are the trends of classic white colored kitchens is out, using white cabinets for the top cabinetry and the black cabinets for the lower cabinetry is the trend that is followed by interior designers these days. It brings a kind of bold sophistication to the kitchen space while keeping the classic elegance seen in white kitchen. If the use of two toned cabinets in the kitchen is unnerving, then one can use mixed cabinet colours to give the elegant look to your customized modular kitchen. Remember that mixing too much colour and tones to an area may be given a cluttered and congested look to the appearance of the space. So one must exercise care when selecting such mixed tones and colours.
Making a Statement with Ceiling and Floors
Making a bold statement in the ceilings and floors is now a commonly seen trend in interior designing. This can be achieved through the use of geometric patterns, bold colours which blend with the ceiling or floor designs. If the eccentric interior designs for your floor to ceiling do not appeal to your taste, you can use patterned ceiling or floors.
Furniture with Curved and Smooth Edges and Lines
One of the most noted changes in the interior design trends is the use of smooth edged or curved furniture designs instead of boxy edges and clean lines. Moving from puffy and soft chairs to curved coffee tables are all about elegance and comfort in interior designing elements. Comfort rather than complex and boring geometrical designs has taken precedence and designers now incorporate smooth fabrics and round shaped furniture.
