Interior Design, Decorating and Home Decor Trends 2015
Colors of the Year 2015
Color is back. Did the folks at Benjamin Moore, Pantone and Sherwin-Williams get it right?
Metallics and Mixing Metals
This is one forecasted trend I continue to lean towards and admit to having quite the decorating crush on. Bring on the metallics and art of mixing metals in the name of all things home furnishings and home decor accents beauty.
Let there be lacquer
A strong look for a strong statement, lacquered walls and ceilings shine the statement spotlight on high gloss glamour. Don’t buy into the notion that lacquered walls and ceilings are only meant to carry a small space. Lacquered lies, I tell you! Drama deserves to play the big room, and a lacquered finish will deliver on the promise of performing as the shining star of statement making style .

Things are tuft(ed) all over in classic leopard-print for 2015
When a classic print such as leopard is paired with a timeless textile form process as classically chic as tufting is, the result is trend setting elegance worth decorative consideration.
The following statement appeared in my Decorating Trends for 2014 post:
“I said this last year and why change it if the words hold true? Good trends possess not only the quality, but the look and decorative chops to become even better the second, third or hundredth time around when done very well. I do believe there’s another word for it, classic.”
The success of a trend is often measured by the acceptance of the designing and decorating public, ease of implementation into established decors, and the decorative ability to show staying power. A blip on the trend radar, a pass or fail fad, or timeless classic must try- what say you about the these interior design, decorating and home decor trends 2015?
