Every year marks the beginning of a deluge of home trend predictions. The home design experts start throwing out their predictions faster than we can read them. However, not everything that is predicted during this stampede of trends actually makes it into our homes.
A quarter of the way into 2015 and we are starting to see many of this year’s trends come to life, the ones that you have embraced and brought into your homes. From indoor container gardening to mixing wood and metal, 2015 is all about creating an experience for yourself and your guests. By far, our favorite trend of 2015 is mixing modern with rustic accents in order to make your home both trendy and inviting.
Notice that I used the word “accents." There is no need to make major changes to your modern décor. Simply adding a rustic wood footstool such as the one pictured here, can drastically change the look and feel of your room for the better.
It was also predicted that we would see more organic elements incorporated throughout many homes. Bringing nature into your home has been very popular in 2015, which includes free flowing shapes, colors found in nature, and the feeling of peaceful serenity that is associated with the outdoors. You can create an “outdoorsy” feel in your home just by mixing earthy components against wooden furniture or using ivory tones throughout various rooms.
In addition, copper touches have also come to life this year in the real estate market. Increasingly, many homeowners are including copper accents in their home, and it’s especially popular among many top designers. By displaying copper cookware in your kitchen or copper pieces in light fixtures or planters, you’ll add a touch of glamour without going over the top.
These are just a few of the design predictions that have come to life in 2015. As the year progresses, be sure to keep your eye out for even more hot design trends. They may even be a part of your own home’s design!
