“For 2014, I see a strong influence of bold, saturated color, like saffron, which conjures a real tropical vibe, yet works just as well to brighten a classic interior. The 18th-century craft of mixing inks to create Venetian marble papers is also becoming a design must-have, adding style to boxes, carpets, dinnerware and wall coverings.”
“I see clean lines being combined with decadent materials such as marble, rich woods, colorful textiles and beautiful finishes to add warmth and interest. Although more ornate shapes will always have a place in design, 2014 is all about keeping the silhouettes simple and unadorned!”
“Rose gold is going to be a big trend this coming year. And neon colors will be used as fun accents in accessories, as well as matte vibrant blue and red.”
“There will be more emphasis on juxtaposing styles, playful takes on classic silhouettes and a deepening pride in local craftsmen and artists.” (This new breed furniture piece epitomizes the idea—it was inspired by French 20th-century furniture design and can be custom painted to suit your space.)
“We will see more organic, floral prints and less geometric patterns. There will be brighter, clearer colors used in the design. Greige is over.”
“People will to continue to embrace the demand and creation of small-batch, artisanal products. We will see more quality handcrafted products for the home through e-commerce sites, pop-up stores and traditional brick-and-mortar. People want to support local designers and makers. These products have real stories and unique designs. Plus, artisan products are a great way to mix in an unexpected component to your home.”
“Macramé wall hangings are a cool alternative to large-scale art or textile wall hangings. Rattan looks fabulous in this mix, as well, since it’s textural and organic and a chic alternative to wood or upholstered pieces.”
“Blue is going to have its much-deserved moment in the spotlight. There are so many beautiful shades—cobalt, cerulean, turquoise, navy, marine—and I’m especially loving Indigo. It looks so fresh paired with white or ivory and has universal appeal.”
“I predict the continued ‘deconstructionist‘ Mad Max look will still be forging ahead with every form of raw galvanized metals, bolts, screws and exposed bulbs leading the way. In conjunction with this, I see the angular forms of the ’80s, sleek, more contemporary pieces made of glass, Lucite, and various man-made materials with shinier brass hardware.”
“Specialty cocktails are in vogue and people are enjoying their homes and entertaining more. Expect to see more bar carts, barware and actual bars in homes in the coming year.” (Woodson’s bar favorites? The jazz-inspired Adage line of crystal barware from Hermès and the lacquer-finished bars from Maitland Smith.)
“I think getting back to the basics, for example making the baby’s room look like baby’s rooms, is super-cool. Super-cool is also not following a trend—but doing what you love in your home regardless of the trend.”
These are some home predictions for 2014 revealed by top interior designers. Even if you love to follow every trend, remember that the important thing is to create a space that you really love. Enjoy your decor.
