The new year always feels like a natural place to turn the page and make some changes. If you’re looking to freshen up your home in 2014, why not be one of the first to embrace this year’s up and coming styles? Designers and style-spotters have long been speculating on the next big trends and we’ve compiled a list of some styles you’ll be sure to see in the coming year.
Pantone recently named Radiant Orchid the color of the year for 2014 and purple of all hues will be popping up in home décor this year. For a close match to the color of the year try HGTV Home Fully Laced Quartz. This fabric not only features a backdrop of warm purple but also has a mid-century modern feel—another trend that should continue into the coming year.
Scenes featuring mixed metals were big in 2013 and the trend is staying with a focus on gold. You can bring the sheen of gold to your fabrics, too. P/Kaufmann Flash Gold is a metallic gold fabric that will certainly make a statement. If you’re looking for something a little softer, try a window treatment or pillow in Softline’s Marlowe White fabric, which features soft gold in a trendy embroidery.
In Pantone’s fashion color report for Spring 2014 there are two shades of blue: Dazzling Blue and Placid Blue. Look for everything from turquoise to deep navy, royal blue to periwinkle to have a presence this year. Our blue suggestions include a bright turquoise damask, P/Kaufmann Julian Turquoise, and a two-toned Ikat (another fabric trend that’s sticking around for 2014), P/Kaufmann Journey Seaglass.
Pops of bright yellow will make anyone feel cheery. This warm color will bring a nice depth to your room. Try a bright yellow for a big statement like the vibrant yellow flowers in Waverly Button Blooms Confetti. For a softer look, yellow can be tempered with gray, as in Waverly Bedazzle Silver Lining.
5. Floral & Chintz
Floral is a popular motif heading into 2014 and the traditional pattern is coming back in chintz as well. The bright and crisp designs will bring a beautiful burst of color to your home. For a great example of traditional floral chintz try Waverly Garden Spring or Waverly Spring Bling Spring.
6. Menswear Inspired
Menswear is beginning to inspire not only women’s fashion but home décor as well. Traditional prints like herringbone and houndstooth are being reimagined in new color ways and styles for 2014. Geobella Houndstooth features the iconic weave in traditional colors but Sunbrella’s Mod Mink Fabric takes it up a notch. For a subtle herringbone, look to P/Kaufmann Funny Bone, which is available in a variety of colors.
