While spring blossoms, home owners begin to pay attention to the details of the walls they have been staring at for months. This is true even more so this year, after the extreme weather much of the country has experienced, keeping doors and windows closed. As the sunlight begins to flood in during the next few weeks, thoughts of interior design come to the forefront.
There are some incredible interior design trends for interior painting surfacing for 2014. Here are three of the hottest:
Walls Saturated with Color
Gone are the days of beige and off-white painted walls. The newest paint color trends begin with real color, think plum, navy and ochre, for walls of your home. While really dark shades can seem a little extreme, this interior design trend allows for you to experiment with some deeper colors throughout your home, in rooms that have a little more light and wall space, to see how it “feels”.
Mix and Match
Along with the deeper paint shades, interior design trends for this year also dictate that matching walls, or accessories, are also a thing of the past. This means if you have selected deep blue paint for your walls, you don’t have to stick to neutrals or blues with accent paint or room accents. If you feel adventurous, in the room with that deep blue wall, add a light orange accent or even a nice, rich red.
Taking the paint color trend even farther, dramatic entrances are all the rage this year. Imagine a foyer that has deep gold accents or even a gold accent wall, balanced against a deep brown color surrounding it. Or a doorway with bright white trim, lined with deep plum paint. Imagine the effect on your visitors with a dramatic entrance to lead them into your home and around your space.
As you begin to plan your interior design changes for this spring, start by researching the paints that will cover the walls and entryways of our home. Add contrasting colors and accents to create a truly unique space.
