Whether you’re moving into a new home at the beginning of this new year or you’re just wanting to stay on top of trends as they come, January marks a key point on the decorating calendar. What will be in this year? As always, home designers turn to the clothing trends seen on the runway, as these two trends tend to overlap with each other. According to home trendsetters, such as Fashiontrendsetter.com, Sherwin-Williams and Curbly.com, here is what to expect:
• The economic recession might impact color choices. People will steer toward neutral, practical colors, such as gray, which is predicted to be a popular shade of 2010.
• On the other hand, dramatic colors could sore in unexpected combinations, such as black and white, and leather and crystal.
• Layering will be popular for fabrics, textures, accessories, patterns and more.
• The green movement will continue to skyrocket with eco-friendly options that remind one of nature and that use recyclable materials.
• Rooms will be designed to reflect an open, relaxing and light décor that feels uncluttered, relaxing and reflecting of nature.
• Pain palettes for 2010 focus on colors found in nature and that are reminiscent of Native cultures. The purpose of these calming tones is to create a cozy sanctuary. Whether dark or light hues are your style, you can choose from Sherwin-Williams favorites like Oceanside Blue, Darkroom, Rockwood Amber, Nomadic Desert and Foothills.
• The Hollywood Regency style will reemerge, especially with furniture. This eclectic option will mix and match shockingly vibrant patterns and personality.
• Other trends to expect include Art Décor and Art Noveau shapes and patterns, mosaics, patchworks and multi-cultural inspirations.
