It is a protected colour, it’s timeless and it really works properly as a base shade for thrilling plashes of shade accents. It doesn’t have the sting it as soon as has and its reputation has been waning over the previous few years. I in addition to numerous different designers share the sentiment that the recognition of beige will proceed in its demise. It’s a type of which can keep round in some type of power however it’s misplaced its lustre. This yr we’ll see a continuation of the unwinding of a robust however sterile development.
A. Brass is Class Brass has the power to look ludicrously luscious or tantalizingly cheesy. A variety of years again I was taken round a designers showroom in China who specialised in brass-ware; it seemed cheesy and clichéd.

When achieved proper, brass seems stylish, it’s timeless, it’s additionally a development which has been gathering steam over the previous yr. In 2014 we foresee an increase within the reputation of brass, notably within the kitchen, daring brass bathtubs (as per the picture under), lamp stands and different decorative items.
H. Corduroy Don’ assume trousers (pants), assume sofa’s (sofa)! Many designers are bringing corduroy into their focus this yr, using this velvet various to nice impact. We are seeing daring statements in upholstery, broad audacious bands of twine. A rising development which will certainly achieve momentum in 2014 and 2015.

A weaker development for 2014, however nonetheless rising at an growing price.
N. Hair on Hide No longer is disguise doomed to reside on the ground. Now in 2014, we’ll see this hair on excessive. Off the ground and promoted onto couches, sofa’s, consoles, tables and cushions. We’ve seen much more of hair on disguise within the Grand Designs Live exhibition, which has brought on our psychological schools to be alerted to this development throughout the web. Natural is greatest, but in addition comes with a degree of controversy. There are massive voices on the market who cry out towards utilizing animal pores and skin, nevertheless there at the moment are humane methods of acquiring the hides, hides which might have been in any other case wasted (sadly sufficient).
10. Compatible Colors & Accents In 2014 there’ll be a transfer in the direction of versatility. Instead of getting one set look, we’ll see a base hues enlivened with accents of shade which’ll deliver a monotonous field right into a recent energetic room. We’re speaking shiny chromatic splashes over unsaturated undertones. It’s a recent and energetic development which invigorates the senses and perks up the spirit.
eleven. Lighter Colored Woods Light, recent wanting, honey toned woods look to be on this yr. The overzealous use of wealthy, deep toned woods which has been fashionable in design over the previous H years could possibly be the catalyst for this honey-recent motion. Oak and cherry are each implausible choices right here; each in design, sturdiness and aesthetic attraction. Go for prime quality, don’t be stingy with the price because it’ll be a chic and beautiful present piece for generations to return. This development has been rising steadily over the previous H years and is constant to take floor.
12. Myriad of Blues Blue is undoubtedly an enormous development this yr. We at Freshome are seeing it in all places, from residence design exhibitions to the catwalk.

Azure, beryl, teal, cobalt, sapphire; a cerulean of blue, folding again into themselves in an ocean of electrical design. Apart from turquoise which I cowl in a later level, the opposite shade of blue which has gained fashionable traction is navy. A calming, shade which instructions authority with out showing determined; straightforward and nice on the attention, that is one you possibly can’t go incorrect with in 2014: Navy is vogue. Use it in equipment, delicate furnishings, couches, cushions, cabinets, partitions and anyplace else you’ll be able to think about it. We’re seeing it in all places, We’re seeing it within the design sphere: Blue will probably be huge in 2014.
thirteen. Parisian Soft Black & White It’s been a staple in inside design through the years, however now we’re seeing a shift to softer tones of black and white, taking that harsh edge off of the distinction. The softer tones are simpler on the attention, they’re cozy and enjoyable, but they don’t take the sting off the swank. This is a development which has been evolving over the previous couple of years and proof from the design hemisphere exhibits a continuation in power over 2014. An virtually timeless development that may look good for a very long time to return.
14. Piquant Pineapples This is a type of very particular development predictions that’s removed from obscure and generalized. Pineapples; we’re seeing them on the cat walks, design, prints and residential design exhibitions. Whatever it’s about this scrumptious delectable deal with; it’s made it onto our tables in a special type which definitely isn’t edible. Keep your peepers open in 2014 for this one. A development which can be restricted in its scope, however a feisty one nonetheless. Take a take a look at the cute pineapple candle holders on the kitchen counter under.
15. Timeless Modern but harking back to timeless designs; individuals are flocking again to these immortal conventional designs and have been for a number of years.

In an financial system the place maintaining with the Jones’s is probably not financially possible, going with one thing that’s by no means going to float out of trend is a safe technique.
sixteen. Turquoise Here we’re once more; however this time a selected shade of blue. Turquoise screams of life and character and there’s a plash of this shade all over the place we glance now. The distinction in feeling this vibrant tone provides a room is in such stark distinction to a mellow navy. In my opinion it’s trickier to make use of proper than navy, however as with all the things, when it’s tough, if finished proper it often seems eye catching with the razzle-dazzle edge. It’s a type of ‘in your face’ nimble colours that’s onerous to overlook, and now it’s in your psychological radar, you’ll discover it showing increasingly all through 2014. A development which grew leaps and bounds in 2013, with a robust basis to leap up from and press forwards with nice vigor and efficiency in 2014.
