Our new year at Connell Interiors is filled with two new custom build jobs, two huge renovations and a few remodels… not to mention our favorites… full room furnishings!
While our heads will be in tile, hardware and carpet- you might want to think about
Trends of 2012!
What should we expect for the upcoming year?
How can YOU stay ahead of the trends?
See what top designers and blogs are saying
about the new upcoming design.
Celebrity Interior Designer Kelli Ellis says this about the New Year …
“Even better, that most of next year’s trends are cost-conscious and
budget-friendly with a focus on the basics as well as a few
emerging products that can create the “wow” factor.”
Design Decor Staging says “This year we will see shiny fabrics, sleek and
glossy surfaces and vibrant colors, combined with elegant and classy gray,
white, golden and silver tones.
The “new year bedroom” will become very luxurious with silk and wool, wood and glass,
and wooden ceiling designs.
Interior design trends are moving towards modern decorating ideas in eco style with gray-white-pink color design.
Wood and glass, natural stone and flowers, linen upholstery and silk cushions, and wood
wall paneling are all new elements to incorporate in your new year design!
Natural, weathered and worn wood furnishings are going to continue to become huge! Aidan Gray and Restoration Hardware are a few manufacturers that have picked up this trend.
Greys! This is such a beautiful, soft color to mix the bold, bright colors into.
Industrial mixed with traditional. This provides versatility and unity for
two completely different styles.
Natural Linen and Soft Cottons. While rustic has been a big trend, using these materials
for the upholsteries in the room will offset it nicely.
Modern works are showcased in traditional settings for an unexpected focal point.
Celebrity Interior Designer Kelli Ellis also says:
1. The basics get bolder: “Over the last year, we’ve seen wood finishes
getting lighter, rougher and unfinished. As a result, upholstered
furniture is fighting back from beige! We are seeing a slow trend
towards bright, colorful and bold patterned sofas and chairs.”
2. Let there be light: Aside from paint update your lighting for a
simple way to update a room. Almost always increase the size –
think bigger for a big impact. The trend is to blend styles.
Iron and crystal combinations, drum pendants and blown-glass, and
colored crystal and organic shapes will instantly add some “wow.”
I will definitely keep this tips in mind when designing
these new homes!
