Updating your home’s interiors doesn’t always require a major remodel. A few changes here and there can go a long way; after all, it’s the small details that really make an impact when it comes to interior design. If you’re ready to update your home’s interior for 2015, here are five design tips from Shari Felton to transform your home with great design
1. Make a Statement with Geometric Patterns
Geometric designs are big this year especially in bathroom and kitchen trends. If you’re looking for a major change in your bathroom or kitchen, consider retiling your floors with bold geometric patterned tiles. These tiles are also great for kitchen backsplashes, to add a focal point of visual interest in your kitchen.
You can also use similar geometric patterns for wallpaper in other areas of your home like the bedroom or the living room. If you’re not looking for a major change, you can incorporate the geometric trend in fabrics for pillowcases, throw rugs, and sheets. A chair or coffee table in a modern geometric shape also makes for a statement piece in the living room.
2. Incorporate New Color Trends for the Year
Move over black and white, as gray is the new go-to neutral color for interior design. Gray is a very versatile color to work with; you can use it with pastels, different shades of brown, and yes, black and white for a monochromatic color scheme.
Blue (especially deep sea blue) is also a great color to incorporate into anything from accent pieces to entire walls, as it can create a dramatic but calming effect in any room especially when used for walls.
