A contrast to all the dark woods we’ve been seeing in furniture, this lighter, honey-colored wood, like walnut, oak, or cherry, provides a fresher look to your space. Brighten up your room with smooth and modern wooden furniture and dive into the new trends that 2014 has to offer.
The kitchen has always been the heart of the home, and now designers are finally dressing it up accordingly. The new style is to fit out kitchens with elaborate custom cabinetry in rich gemstone colors accented with brass or chrome. And of course, to complete the look, unusual light fixtures, and dramatic countertops coupled with matching backsplash should do the trick. Kitchens are becoming simply glamorous in 2014.
Turquoise is expected to be a big hit in 2014. The mass amounts of blues and greens used in home décor for the past few years has finally culminated in the turquoise take-over. This deep and saturated color will be showing up in upholstery, wall coverings, and on furniture. Brace yourself.
Matchy matchy metals are now a thing of the past. A mixture of metallic sheens has finally become a growing trend for homeowners. The rule of thumb is to not go overboard. Two sheens are ideal, but keep your metals to no more than three in a room. Try a metallic mirror focal point, with antique brass knobs and handles to complete the look.
Remember the cringe-worthy plank walls from the 1970s? Well cringe no more. Plank walls in 2014 have been turned horizontally and supplied with a fresh coat of white paint. These large-scale planks bring a cottage feel and provide a fresh backdrop to any space, whether, kitchen, nook, or bathroom.
