2015. It’s finally upon us. Today we’re going to delve head first into what we believe will be some of the heavy hitting interior design features that will become increasingly popular in the coming year. Admittedly, not all of these designs are new. You may have seen them in previous years, but they have yet to have their time in the sun (so to speak).
So without further adieu, here are the hottest interior design trends of 2015.
Over the past few decades, there has been an increasing trend for economy. From economy cars to more compact homes, people tend to want to make the best of every inch that they have, and who can blame them?
Understanding the change in times, architects have begun creating households with one added feature in mind…space economy. As a society, we acquire a lot of personal belongings throughout the course of our life and require a place to put them. Instead of cluttering up garages or constructing an entire room dedicated to storage space, ZSA Architects have come up with a convenient solution that not only allows home owners to store their belongings, but do so in a space saving, economic fashion.
Introducing…Stairs that can also be used as drawers!
No more clutter, no more mess. The stairs pull out to reveal an enormous amount of additional space that can be used to store your belongings without the need for additional rooms or garages. It allows you to make use of the space you already have!
Health Friendly Designs
Paint, insulation, upholstery, wood stain and other synthetic materials used in the home have been known to cause hypoallergenic reactions and other serious health problems.
Alternatives to these unhealthy materials can be challenging to find, but may be well worth the additional trouble.
To mitigate these potentially harmful problems, designers have begun using natural materials when carefully crafting the interior of homes.
In the above piece, the architects of SF Arc crafted an unorthodox tabletop made from lumber that not only gives the home owners a natural feel, but also doesn’t contain any potentially harmful materials. The look of such a piece is sure to make for a great conversation starter among guests.
The Nature Walk
In the last design trend, we gave you a glimpse of what it looks to use natural products within the home. Now, we’re going to show you what it’s like to take it a step further by creating an outdoor theme within your living room.
If you haven’t figured it out by now, nature is IN. Within the coming years, this trend will be sure to grow as it provides a feeling as if you’re one with the wild. This particular design came from the brilliant minds of SimpleHome.net
In the future, we will see a lot more bespoke designs that use extravagant ideas which will cause your guests to look on in astonishment (and a bit of jealousy).
Singing the Blues
Without a doubt, the color blue is quickly becoming the go-to color accent and is quickly picking up steam among mainstream designers.
Peace, tranquility, creating a sense of calmness, relaxation, and order; according to color psychology experts, these are the emotions that the color blue evokes within ourselves, so it only makes sense that such a peaceful color would be a popular feature within the home.
Different shades of blue (like in the photo below) that roll and blend together will be sure to ignite the senses.
The photo above shows teal, beryl, azure, sapphire, cobalt; a cerulean of blue that fold back into themselves like a beautifully orchestrated ocean of electric design.
Don’t Get Left Behind
The old tired look of a plain beige interior is over. Enter the age of exciting, memorable interior design that elicit a feeling of aw and provides a bit of eye candy for home owners and guests alike.
