A new season brings change—not just change in clothing choices and weather patterns, but also fresh ideas to breathe a little life into your home.
We’ve searched high and low to bring you the hottest home interior trends for Winter 2014/2015. Here’s what you can expect to encounter this coming season, and how you can bring these hot new trends into your own home.
The weather outside might be frightful, but that doesn’t mean that your home needs to be grey and moody. In fact, the opposite is true: this winter is about infusing your home with bright pops of color. Choose any hue in the rainbow – just don’t choose all of them at once. Stick to colors in the same family, or choose complimentary colors. This is a great one to practice for a statement piece or for home accessories.
Pop Out the Champagne
From Christmas to New Years to Valentine’s Day, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy a little bubbly throughout the winter season. It’s fitting, then, that this blush-beige color is popping up everywhere. This delicate shade is sweet without being too girly—seek it out in fabrics that are just as indulgent as a glass of champagne.
Bring on the Patterns
Patterns are a fun way to add a little life to otherwise flat décor. Seek out architectural patterns in throw pillows or an area rug for a decidedly modern look, or pick out a slipcover in a funky floral print. Don’t worry: florals have come a long way since your grandmother’s living room.
Two Words: Art Deco
While all patterns are hot this season, art deco seems to be making yet another comeback as the style of choice. Art deco prints in 2014/2015 incorporate softer, less harsh colors—though as we’re about to discover, art deco with a pop of gold is a win this season.
Going for Gold
Gold is not your average neutral—but that’s exactly how it’s being used in home décor this winter. This goes-with-everything metallic is perfect for Christmastime, but transitions nicely well beyond the holiday season. Use it as little or as much as you want—serving platters and picture frames are a good place to start.
Cashmere, Cashmere, Cashmere
There’s no better feeling than burrowing underneath a ridiculously soft cashmere blanket on a cold winter’s day, so be sure to throw one over every couch and armchair in your living room. A cashmere throw is also a great way to give your bed a makeover without investing in new linens. Nature-inspired shades are particularly hot for cashmere throws this year: stormy greys, mossy greens, and—of course—snow white.
Take on Texture
Add a little depth to your home by incorporating different textures throughout. Chunky knit pillows, quilted bedspreads, and fluffy area rugs are a few ways to add warmth to your décor through texture this winter.
Wood has never been a hotter choice for accents. The more natural and less lacquered, the better: winter 2014/2015 is all about patina. Embrace this trend with a holiday tablescape: just head outside and collect fallen branches and twigs to craft an elegant centerpiece.
