1. Live plants and potted flowers
It is no secret that 2014 is the year of the Horse, and one of the primary colors in the interior, of course, is green. This color, as well as all its shades, is quite bright and conspicuous, so it is quite difficult to fit it harmoniously into the interior. And here is where living plants come to help. They organically fit into any style and design, add color, freshness and create a great atmosphere in the room.
Potted flowers are welcome in any room. Single large plants or a composition of several small ones will be suitable. The main criterion for choosing is the rich green color and smooth healthy leaves. Large flowers or plants can be placed on the floor, while exposed surfaces and shelves may serve for small ones.
2. Natural materials
2014 is the year of Wooden Horse, which means that natural wood will be an absolute favorite in interior design. This year all types of wood, all shades and textures are trendy. It is actively used in design, furniture and decoration.
This year rough wood, original and natural, is particularly popular. However, depending on the color solutions in interior design, you can use uniformly colored wood.
3. Fashionable colors for accents in the interior
Another fashionable trend is the use of blue and green as an accent. This trend is also directly connected with Horse. After all, these colors in the interior have to bring luck and prosperity in our lives.
As an accent new pieces of furniture, decor, live plants, textile, glassware may serve. When choosing it’s better to be guided only by personal preferences, imagination and budget. Do not forget that with the help of accents it is possible to dramatically change the appearance of any room.
4. Elegance and charm of Scandinavia
Scandinavian style in a residential area is more popular. It has kept its relevance for several years due to the functionality, abundant light and air, natural materials, refined simplicity and coziness.
Quite often, when creating a Scandinavian style in the interior, white is used as the major color. It visually increases the space, adds elegance, purity and perfectly combines with other colors.
5. Dynamics and easy negligence in the interior
Another trend in 2014 is the easy negligence in the details of the interior, which is combined with perfect purity and absolute order. We often visit “ideal homes “, where every thing is always in the right place. Of course it is admirable, but in such interior there is lack of comfort, life and dynamics.
Such premises need to be complemented with slight negligence in details. For example, you can arbitrarily throw the blanket on the sofa, instead of gently straightening every corner of it. This also applies to perfectly folded decorative pillows, flat stacks of books and magazines, etc.
6. Mirrors and mirror surfaces in the interior
Any mirror surfaces are considered to be the zest and fashion trend of interior design in 2014. It is important not to overdo and not to overload the interior with abundance of mirrors. They are a perfect fit in almost any room design, visually enhance and extend the space, but an excessive amount of mirrors in the house could negatively affect the comfort and coziness.
In 2014 full-length mirrors, especially in beautiful frames, decorative objects using mirrored surfaces, glass and crystal chandeliers, floor lamps are relevant.
