Five Interior Design Trends for 2015 – Which will you adopt?

This is a collaborative post

As we say goodbye to 2014, it's time to look forward to the colours, fabrics, and trends that will define interior design next year. 2014 was all about metallic accents, jewel tones, and floral prints, so what will the new year bring? Let's look into our design crystal ball and see what trends are forecast for the next twelve months. 



1. Handmade, artisanal fabrics
Are you an Etsy addict? Handmade, folksy, and crafty designs are everywhere at the moment, including the fashion world. This will carry over even further into interior design over the next year. The emphasis will be on pieces that look handmade, but are crafted from high quality materials. Look for handwoven and quilted fabrics, as well as one-off furniture pieces carved by hand.


2. Red and grey colour palette
Pantone's colour of the year for 2015 is Marsala, a rich, earthy red wine stain that will no doubt lend itself well to walls, throw pillows, and kitchen accessories. Expect to see variations on this deep red theme next year, along with infinite shades of grey. Charcoal, smoky hues, and more metallic silvery tones will dominate. These will be balanced out with minimalist and tasteful shades of black and white, continuing a trend from last year.

3. Organic shapes
Crisp, clean, and modern shapes have been big for the past few years, but in 2015 designers are predicting softer, more organic rounded shapes. These shapes may be pulled from natural influences, like the curve of a seashell or blown glass. You'll see this influence in furniture, lighting fixtures, and accessories for the bathroom or kitchen.


4. Ethnic influences
Patterns like Ikat and Paisley have been popular throughout 2014, but this trend shows no sign of slowing down for the next year. However, these traditional patterns have been reworked with new colour themes to give them a more modern, contemporary feeling that would fit into many different schemes. If you're at a loss regarding how to mix bold fabrics, you might want to brush up on your interior design basics for inspiration.

5. Tactile velvet
Traditional fabrics like jacquard and tapestries are making strong appearances in designer showrooms at the moment. Velvet is another top trend, adding a plush, tactile richness to a room's décor. If you don't want to go full-on with heavy velvet curtains, try picking up some accent pillows or a velvet ottoman to bring some classical flair into your living room or bedroom.


Are you planning to revamp your home's interior next year? If so, you might want to take a look at what's in showrooms now for inspiration. Whether it's touchable fabrics, funky patterns, or a soft grey and Marsala colour palette, interior designs are getting increasingly cosy this upcoming year!
