As any local interior designers worth their salt can tell you, great interior design can have a number of beneficial effects for your home and your family. Using the right colors, for example, can improve your mood, help regulate your appetite, and even help you relax when it’s time to go to bed at night. As the U.S. Green Building Council writes, tapping into the latest interior design trends with the help of the best interior designers can also boost the price of your home when it comes time to sell.
The only problem with working with home interior designers to implement the latest and greatest design trends in your home is that they are constantly changing. From 2014 to 2015, what’s hot in design will change. If you’re wondering what you can do to keep your home at the cutting edge of design as we move toward the new year, here are just a few of the predictions luxury interior designers have made about 2015’s trends.
Four of 2015’s Hottest Design Trends, as Estimated by Luxury Interior Designers
- A Move Toward Mother Nature
- Monochromatic Living Spaces Are In
- Luxury Tubs Are Making a Comeback
- Bold Colors Make for Sexy Spaces
If you follow science fiction, you know that we’re supposed to be living in completely white or stainless steel silver apartments in futuristic cities by now. As the interior design community Lushome.com points out, however, the reality couldn’t be anything further from that. Moving into 2015, more homeowners want to bring the look and feel of the natural world into their homes. Using mosses for natural wallcoverings, taking advantage of the natural beauty of hardwoods, using bamboo for kitchen counters — these are just a few of the ways luxury interior designers are bringing Gaia back into the living space.
The last few years have seen a troubling move towards contrasting patterns — whoever thought polka dots should go with paisley should probably be put down. Conde Nast Traveler writes that a return to simplicity will be one of more popular trends next year. Monochromatic patterns and colors, particularly on couches, love seats, and on living room walls, will see a return to prominence.
In my personal opinion, one of the worst things to happen to interior design in the last decade has been the abandonment of traditional bathtubs in favor of showers. Subsequently, Huffington Post‘s suggestion that luxury bathtubs — those made from marble or cast iron — are making a comeback is really exciting news. These traditional tubs bring unrivaled elegance and comfort to any bathroom.
While monochromatic is definitely in for the living room, House Beautiful suggests that bolder colors should be employed in most other spaces in the home. Cobalt and Mediterranean blues are especially hot, and are being implemented in kitchens, dining areas, and bathrooms to help liven up the space. Since blues are tied to relaxation, this move towards cooler but bolder hues just makes sense.
