It is very difficult to explain but trends in home designs can suddenly be so yesterday and just as suddenly become contemporary again. Yes indeed, home designs change as fast as fashion or pop culture. There are instances when a trend is influenced by a film. If you have watched the Meryl Streep film The Devil Wears Prada, you will notice her rant on the blue sweater scene and how this influenced department stores to fill their discount centers with the color cerulean.
There are several examples of home design trends that include a feature wall. There is no better way to inject personality into a certain space than making a feature wall through hand-painted wallpaper or bold artful prints in metallic finishes. An example of a boundary-pushing design is the statement wall at the Viceroy Hotels and Resorts that was made by Kelly Wearstler. If you are renting an apartment that disallows home improvement projects, your option is removal wall decals or vinyl stickers.
If you are fan of the television series Mad Men or Suits, you can easily get an idea from the home bar where the stars usually make a beeline for. Home bars have always been part of American culture and it can be the place to have a quiet conversation. It does not even require a big space since a stylish bar cart is enough to make an impression.
Modern Moroccan patterns are re-emerging in fashion and home design. This is proven by Carolina Herrera’s Spring Collection of 2015 including design blogs and Pinterest boards. Most consumers in the West are moving away from products that are mass manufactured towards hand-crafted wares that can be found all over the globe. A mid-century designed chair in leather or wood can seamlessly create an ambiance of a modern room.
Velvet has always been synonymous to luxury because of the high cost of production and its history of usage. Velvet has been taken back to the market by fashion designers and furniture makers. With its unusual softness and depth of color, velvet can easily impress your guests. Use a deep green, turquoise or navy velvet sofa or armchair as the star of your room but make sure to use white on everything else.
