As this year's spring season begins to unfold, new interior design styles are making headlines in niche magazines and your favorite design blogs in a hurry. The best part is these popular trends can help you carve out your personal style as you pursue a degree interior design. Reflect on your favorite looks while exploring the 2015 interior design trends below!
Indigo blue has emerged as a dominant color in patterns, fabrics and paints for its rich hue, which complements most color schemes and offers a deep contrast to white, minimalist interiors. Designers love using this tone in ikat patterns and painterly rugs, but it also serves as a calming color in your home. Consider applying indigo to your bedroom walls for a soulful, unexpected background in your future interior projects.
Geometric patterns are en vogue, especially on tiles and accent pieces. Trending DIY projects entail a modern, triangular pattern in light colors. For a bolder move, think about painting a pastel geometric pattern in an entryway. Warm shades like peach or beige will welcome guests and solidify a modern geometric pattern. Tiles with geometric designs also serve as a great backdrop below kitchen cabinets and in bathrooms.
In design, minimalism uses light wood tones, creating a Scandinavian aesthetic. Today, this approach to an interior space is all about simplicity and utilitarianism. Light wood furniture offers an airy design, often including thin, tapered legs; it should lack the heaviness of dark antiques. If you can't make big changes, consider small investments like a basic lamp or light-wood side table.
The organic look of reclaimed wood and recycled metal is anything but new. Rather than fizzling out in 2015, however, this trend continues to make an impact in the design community. Rustic wood has found its way into the most classic setups. For more affordable options, look for rustic cutting boards to use as accents at dinner parties and to hang in your kitchen as decoration.
These 2015 interior design trends aren't hard-and-fast rules, but rather fun ideas to guide your own interior styling work. There is a lot of natural crossover between these different trends; see if you can integrate a few at the same time in your own home before introducing them in your work with clients.
