5 Home Design Trends You’ll See in 2014

The New Year is here, and 2014 home design predictions are already being made by designers and bloggers around the interweb wherever you look. Truth is, we’ve got some predictions of our own, and we can’t think of a better way to ring in the New Year than with by sharing them with you. Here’s to a healthy, happy and design-forward 2014!

Out with the Gold, in with the Copper

Last year, metallics made a striking comeback. For the first time in years, we saw bright silvers and daring golds nearly take over the design world, and we liked it. In 2014, the metallic model will still reign, but we’ll see that bold copper color become the most popular of the lustrous legacy. Copper will shine as the color of choice for lamp shades, dish-wear, chairs and accents.

Inside Out

Once upon a time, our backyard spaces were distinctly different than our indoor living rooms; they were decorated with decidedly “outdoor” furniture, meant to distinguish being inside and being out. This year, we’re embracing the outside living room look, replete with cushions, drapes, side tables and more. The transition from inside to out has never been so seamless.

Rubber Ducky in a Stand-Alone Tub

The stand-alone tub looks sleek, and is one of our favorite trends because it’s also functional. Gone are the days of tubs tucked into corners of the bathroom. Freestanding tubs can create a modern focal point, and don’t have to fit within traditional boundaries. What’s more, they come in a much wider variety of shapes and sizes, making bath-time fun again for everyone.

The Lawn-less Lawn

This year, the eco-friendly, low maintenance trend of ditching that full-blown lawn for a landscape of native plants will take over the world. All-grass lawns require wild amounts of water to keep green, as well as near-constant mowing in sunny months. But with a little research or the help of a local landscape architect, you can rid yourself of the lawn woes and create a stunning and much more vibrant area for the front or back of your home.

Black is the New White Wall

Dark paint is in. While you may feel most comfortable starting with a dark gray, black is suspected to become the number one paint color for design-savvy homes in 2014. Try painting one accent wall dark and see what you think. Or peruse Pinterest for a few minutes to get an idea of just how good a dark wall can make a room look.
