Design trends: metallics, wallpaper and the accent color of the year.

Shine Bright

One of this year’s most prominent design trends is pairing a variety of metallics in a wide range of finishes – like chrome with gold and bronze with silver.

Blue Linings

Gray is still this year’s neutral, but blue remains the hottest accent color in 2015. Navy, aquamarine, cobalt and royal blue all top the chart.

Writing on the Wall

Wallpaper is making a comeback – only now we are seeing it on unexpected places, like built-in shelving, hallways and even ceilings.

Trip to the Sea

“Themed” rooms are coming back into style, as long as they are done tastefully. Ocean-themed rooms are especially in right now, drawing on natural elements (like driftwood and seagrass), breezy textiles and nautical colors.

Design for All Generations

We are continuing to notice a trend in Universal Design, which aims to customize a home’s design for every generation, providing style and accessibility. With this trend we are seeing smart choices like multi-height surfaces, easy-to-grip knobs and pulls, adjustable seating and low-profile shower entrances.
