1. Chevron and herringbone – Creates a dynamic and interesting pattern. Herringbone in particular is such a classic motif, you don’t have to worry about it going out of style. You can add this print in many forms- marble tiles, draperies, cushions, flooring, etc.
2. Raw & natural materials – Adding textural elements to your decor such as wood, iron, leather, steel, stone, canvas, glass & linen create a soft and comfortable interior space. These elements also add great acoustical qualities to a room, which helps create a ‘homey’ feeling. Natural elements can be found in every form of finishing materials and decor elements. Some items worth noting are furniture, fabrics, wall features and room decor.
3. Gold and Mixing Metallics – Don’t be afraid to mix metallics! We are seeing so many different types of metals being highlighted in interiors. Gold, brass and copper are making big comebacks, while classic chrome still stands strong. Additionally the burnished metals are being highlighted in a rustic nature through interior furnishings and light fixtures. Mixing metals shows true character in a space, so don’t be afraid to mix them up and make it interesting!
4. Fall colour trends – Bold hues & jewel tones are very hot right now! Not to mention the colour of the year is Emerald. Popular colours right now are deep purple, sapphire blue, and burnt orange, all balanced out with steel grey and olive green. Bring the jewel tones into your winter accessorizing through blankets, toss cushions, drapery and artwork and balance them again neutral furnishings. This way you have the opportunity to change out your soft materials from season to season, if you want to stay current with your interior decor!
5. Menswear Prints – Using menswear as inspiration for the textiles in your space – whether you are designing a bachelor pad or a single lady’s retreat, you can create a tailored and calm environment with these classic finishes. Charcoal grey’s, tweeds, plaids, and again herringbone are being used in wallpaper, textiles, carpets and tiles.
