Natural Colors and Pastels

Last year, Benjamin Moore® released a series of “new neutrals,” comprising a palette of colors that don't yell "look at me" but whisper it with various undertones. This year, the trend is expected to continue but it has also evolved to include brighter, more saturated hues with the release of Benjamin Moore’s® Color Trends 2015.

Color Trends 2015 is a palette of 23 colors that focuses on layers of color that bring out light, dark, warm and cool layers of the same color family. This palette features four beautiful color families, including green, blue, blush and berry.

LAMPS PLUS® is a great resource for finding the perfect lighting fixture and home accent. This dining room is the perfect example of how to add a touch of the geometric design trend to your space. The Four Square 4-Light Seedy Glass Bronze Chandelier is the center of this dining room, while the metal geometric wall art and patterned rug add a modern and updated feel to the space.

Geometric Accents

One of the hottest trends of the New Year is the addition of geometric designs. You can see it in fabrics, furniture, tiles, light fixtures and wall art. The bold and graphic style of many of these pieces provides an intriguing accent and can draw the eye into a space easily.

The White and Bright Herringbone Kitchen from Fireclay Tile features their White Wash 2x4 tile in a herringbone pattern to create an interesting pattern.

Eco-Friendly Products

Just as new home building has been shifting to more environmentally conscious green homes, so has home décor. Decorative items such as lamps, lanterns and other items can all be made out of natural materials. Some likely examples include raw wood, glass, stone, copper, burlap, and rope and linen.

There are also plenty of companies with a focus on environmentally conscious manufacturing. For example, Fireclay Tile manufactures tiles made from recycled glass in a variety of colors and shapes. You can mix and match the colors to get a product that is unique to your home and style. And since the tiles are handmade by artisans in Northern California, you can feel good about supporting a business that calls home the United States.

Natural Themes and Prints

Looking at interior design in 2015, it is easy to see how nature is influencing design choices. With everything from the addition of flowers and plants to bright floral prints on fabrics and wallpapers, you can see how the elements of nature are making their way indoors.

A chalkboard accent wall can be the perfect place to add your own decorative touch but it can also have functional uses. You can use Benjamin Moore® Chalkboard Paint as an easy memo board, like the photo here.

Chalk Art

Your tastes and preferences for wall art may come and go but there is nothing quite like the timeless appeal of a chalkboard. Chalkboard paint can give you the ability to draw and change your wall art as little or as often as you would like.

Don’t like the look of a classic black chalkboard? Then try Benjamin Moore® Chalkboard Paint. Available in any color, you are sure to find something that fits your taste and décor.

The Pilar® Collection from Delta® is a beautiful faucet that coordinates with any kitchen décor. It's convenient and functional and comes with DIAMOND™ Seal Technology for worry-free, leak-free and lasting durability. The Venetian Bronze finish gives your kitchen a warm touch.

Bronze and Copper Finishes

Bronze and copper are far from being the new kids on the block but they can add a nice warm touch to any room. Bronze and copper first gained popularity in the 70's before technology started really influencing design. But in the last year or two brass, copper and bronze have started to make their way back to the forefront. With everything from copper sinks to brass and bronze finished faucets you can add a distinct, hand wrought touch to your design.

Restoration Hardware has a large catalogue of rustic and vintage inspired furniture. Pictured here is the St. James Bed Panel, shown here in the Antique Coffee finish.

Rustic Furnishings

Modern accents might be in but bamboo, natural wood, and other rustic finishes are also big this year. Marry modern accents and stainless steel with light, unfinished woods for a cool blend of tones and textures. Or place dark metal fixtures with weathered dark woods for a warm and inviting look.

If you are decorating your home for the first time or the second or third, these design trends can help you make a current and on-trend decision that you will love for years to come.
