Mixed Metals

Gone are the days when matching every metal finish in every single room was of extreme importance. In fact, strategically mixing metals for visual effect has become increasingly popular and looks to take 2015 by storm with copper, rose and gold combinations working well alongside a mixture of silvery, gold and black metals.

Smoky Glass

Glass has been used in and around the home from many years, but if you want to add a sense of mystery and intrigue to an otherwise standard material, try using smoked glass in your décor.

Darker in colour than your traditional reflective mirror, it can be seen as both masculine and feminine in style and offers a sultry 1970’s vibe that’ll work wonders if you’re going for a retro look.

Graphic Tiles

An indoor/outdoor theme will be big this year and graphic tiles help capture this al fresco look perfectly. Colourful concrete tiles often used in outside dining areas are moving indoors and even ethnic designs are making an appearance, giving any room an exotic twang.

So, if you’ve been inspired by your travels or fancy adding a different dimension to your property, tiles could be the way to go.

Colours

Choosing a colour scheme for your home is one of the most important interior design decisions you’ll make, so it’s worth planning things out carefully. While some people will carry one theme throughout their whole house, others will prefer to change colour combinations from room-to-room. There really is no right or wrong answer but here’s what’s hot in 2015.

Mediterranean Blue

Mediterranean blue is huge this year, so be inspired by the rooftops of Santorini churches or the shutters of Spanish houses and embrace a colour scheme that’s crisp and fresh. Shades of blue work well against white walls, so perhaps consider accessorising with this vibrant hue.

Ochre Yellows

The most well-received colours and prints from the catwalk often find themselves incorporated into interior design and that’s exactly what’s happened with ochre yellow.

This standout shade was seen all over the runway during September 2014’s Fashion Week and is now set to be one of the biggest of the year inspiring both wallpaper designs and furniture fabric.

Retro Palette

Colour palettes popular in the 1960s, such as olive green and tangerine orange, are making a big comeback offering any room a warm, organic and timeless feel.

Bold colour mixing is also dominating the interior design industry, so feel free to mix colours such as pinks, purples and vivid green with aqua and turquoise for a more 1970’s Flower Power feel.

Neutral Grey

While white and cream are well-known for being neutral colours, grey will come into its own this year. Soft grey walls and ceilings look great alongside charcoal doors and you can even accessorise a room of this colour with a heavy grey marble table for a touch of class.

Unexpected Accents

Black, white and grey work well together but what happens when you add a splash of red?

Well, this unexpected accent can give both paintwork and accessories a lift in the same way that adding citrus orange cushions to a brown suite can instantly spice things up. 2015 is all about surprises, so why not give this trick a go?

Loose Geometric Lines

From runway to room, loose geometric lines will set both the fashion and design industry on fire this year.

This pattern often looks like a broken mosaic and is easily transferred onto feature walls with a few strokes of a paintbrush. It’s all about imagination and flare, so take your inspiration from this year’s fashion trends and get artistic.

Blurred Lines

Ethnic prints are big this year particularly Moroccan-inspired patterns and designs. Geometric shapes and blurred lines combine to create great artistic wall hangings and rugs, so this might be one avenue you wish to explore.

Furniture Styles

This year’s furniture styles incorporate all of the above with bright colours and bold prints brightening up the most neutral of rooms. Velvet, textures and raw looking weaves are dominating the furniture scene and while rich leather is popular for sofas, upholstery fabrics are also making a big comeback.

Feminine Touch

While many modern homes tend to be made up of clean, crisp lines and straight edges, 2015 will see the reintroduction of more curvier and shapely furniture.

The feminine touch is back with graceful, rounded and expanded looking shapes proving popular. Items that look homemade are also in this year with authentic designs and skills such as binding, knotting and weaving dominating. 

There’s so much to discover when it comes to interior design, but you can be sure that 2015 will be a year of class luxury and versatility – so why not unleash your creative side and try out one or more of these modern ideas?
