“Flavours from around the world will have a strong, everlasting presence,” says Forberg. Eclectic designs provide an opportunity to showcase great finds, styles and patterns from around the world, from botanical prints to eccentric patterns and straight lines. Global finds add interest and character to your space and are great conversation starters.
Follow the Runway
Interior design shadows the fashion industry. “All fabrics seen on the runway will be spotted on accent pieces and upholstery such as sofas, accent chairs, benches and dining chairs,” says Forberg. A great way to introduce some of these patterns and prints without changing your entire décor is simply to update your throw pillows, area rugs and wall décor.
Bring the outdoors in
Creating a warm and inviting space indoors that mimics the outdoors is still one of the hottest trends in interior design. Look for colours and materials that match the seasonal changes happening outside your window and pair them with soft pastels to create a harmonized look. Forberg says the mixing of natural materials such as metals, stone, glass and wood will also be seen more in 2015.
Hitting on the nature theme, Forberg says ranch style décor will be popular in 2015, but with a modern twist. Solid wood harvest-style dining tables paired with modern chairs or accessories create a naturally beautiful, rustic chic look.
Look back to the past with a Scandinavian/mid-century modern look
“This look is on every designer’s radar and can really create a space that is architecturally inspired,” says Forberg. The clean, simple shapes and forms that originally became popular in the mid-1930s to 60s are making a comeback, adding a retro feel to modern spaces.
