Interior design is an ever-changing and subjective industry and with a variety of designs, products and furniture to choose from, incorporates much more than you may think. Finding and settling on the right style can prove the most difficult step, which is why we pride ourselves on sourcing only the latest and greatest designs.
This week, Design Contract teamed up to capture the look and feel of summer 2014!
Patterns, Palettes & Fabrics
Summer is all about the patterns designed to stand out and bold colors can create an interior that not only stands out from the crowd, but offers an elegant and enjoyable place to relax at the same time. Chairs or sofas that are covered in dark fabric don’t convey the warm months of the year. Same applies for casegoods. Modernized ethnic fabrics and patterns, upholstery and colour-intense prints look like they will be a popular trend this year. Floral designs, striking patterns and wall mirrors can be mixed and matched with wall colors, flooring styles and simple furniture to create great effect. The more creative the better!
Adding a fresh pizazz to your home from far off exotic lands and nature inspired design furniture like can break up boring bland interiors and if authentic, can be fantastic conversational pieces. So if you see a cushion, print or covering which is oozing with culture this year; don’t shy away.
Throw Etnia rug add an immediate splash of color to every room, too. While it might not be practical to go for white rugs, eco-friendly materials like hemp, jute and bamboo area rugs help transport the natural feel of the summer indoors.
Vintage interior design refers to the 1940′s and early 50′s. It is an era that most people remember either from their own childhood, or from the homes of grandparents. Therefore vintage is wonderfully nostalgic and feels comforting in a family home.
As interest in vintage decorating has grown, so has the very definition of the style. No longer synonymous with just the pre-loved and antique, ‘vintage’ style now encompasses the eclectic, eccentric and pieces that are lovingly handmade. Think a unique statement piece acquired at a market, or a family heirloom re-newed with a fresh coat of paint. Best of all ‘vintage’ is an affordable style that anyone can replicate in their home. This is a wonderfully, beautiful era to recreate in your home. It is extremely nostalgic and looks to an elegant time in history for influences.
Out with the old, doesn’t mean out with traditional designs. Creating a timeless interior from past styles can prove highlight effective and with the right additions, such as matching vintage furniture or, specially, era-influenced design lamp Evans or Ike.
