4 Surprising Interior Design Trends to Watch Out for in 2015
As we approach the dawn of a brand new year, many folks in the interior design world are looking forward to what 2015 will hold. Despite the fact that we’re still a few weeks away, there are still some solid indicators about the interior design trends we may be seeing next year. So let’s take a look at the most likely design trends we’ll be seeing in 2015… some of which may surprise you!
4. Salvaged and upcycled materials
This has been a trend that’s been on the up-and-up for a few years now, but it’s set to really explode next year: salvaged and upcycled materials. The concept of taking an old piece and giving it new life, or even including salvaged materials (like driftwood and railway sleepers), is really gaining some traction. Keep an eye out for the use of some unusual ornaments and statement pieces in lounges and living room in 2015.
3. Modern and traditional fusion
As we move toward the future, there are many interior designers who look to the past for inspiration. This is a great thing because it allows a fusion of both schools of design. For example, the very 1960s trend of using vivid block colours on walls is something that’s really coming back into style. But this design aesthetic is partnered with modern furniture and artwork, causing a juxtaposition that actually works very well.
2. Organic and natural themes
Both in the world of art and wall coverings, there’s been a resurgence in the popularity of designs that include natural elements. Don’t be surprised to see depictions of vines, flowers, trees and other natural forms both in the wall coverings and also in the design of furniture and so on. Bringing this natural touch to a modern room in 2015 is a great way to make a real impression.
Here at Rugs Direct, we’ve already seen some of the design trends for 2015 come to life in the form of rug designs. One of the most popular at the moment is anything in monochrome, such the Arte Espina Reflective Rugs. The blend of blacks, whites and greys can create a stark contrast in a room and it’s something that’s already generating buzz in interior design circles and consumers alike.
