7 Hot Home Decorating Trends for 2015


blue throw blanketThe age of chevron prints and matching furniture comes to an end with 2015’s bold, new home decor trends. These 7 home decorating ideas are among the hottest fads of the year.

1. Wallpaper Accent Wall

Instead of a solid-color painted accent wall, 2015 decor calls for a patterned wallpaper accent wall. Digital printed wallpaper and large, bold textures are at the height of popularity for wallpaper accents.

2. Marsala

The 2015 Pantone color of the year is marsala, which is named for the marsala vine. Marsala is a mixture of brick red and brown and a reigning staple in the fashion and cosmetics world. This color offers a certain warm, inviting, and calm element when used in the home, making it an excellent color tone to add to any room.

3. Blue Accents

The color of the year needs a great accent color, and blue fits the bill. Blues of all shades are the perfect complement to marsala. Shades of navy and indigo go especially well with the popular color and should be used in accent wallpaper, curtains, pillows, rugs, lampshades, and more to pull off an excellent color combination.

4. Pastels

Pastels are back in a big way as a major replacement of the bright color trend of last year. They are inviters of cheer and the feeling of springtime, which makes them perfect for your bright and airy 2015 home. They also pair very well with marsala, which is integral for a cohesive 2015 home. Pair these colors with modern furniture to invite elegance in any room.

5. Cowhide

Though it may seem a little odd, cowhide rugs, pillows, and artwork offer a fabulous, muted accent to a room. It’s the perfect way to accent the simple, yet modern trends unique to 2015.

6. Varied Furniture

Forget about the sofa and loveseat sets. In fact, consider leaving out the loveseat altogether.  Instead, opt for a variation of mismatched, yet complementary furniture in each room. Trade the loveseat for two elegant and simple chairs that work well with the other items in the room, but don’t perfectly match them to your sofa.

7. Mid-Century Modern Accents

For this design trend, think of the architecture, furnishings, and paint colors typical of the middle of the 20th century. These decor items will invite pastel colors, fur chairs, and other accents of that time that were considered “dated” only last year.

Though you may have loved the look of your home last year, it’s time to move on to newer styles and horizons as you decorate your home this year.
