With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season in full swing, nearly everyone has the same goal…closing out the 2014 year with a celebration and then beginning the 2015 chapter with style and pizazz. Here are some of the hottest home design trends of 2015 to get you started!
Last season, we saw a lot of bold and bright in the Pantone color wheel picks, but the trends tended to be cooler and slightly less earthy in tone. This year, Pantone’s top hue is “Marsala”, a rich, warm, red wine color. Among the others featured as “hot” for the upcoming season are Glacier Grey, Lavender Herb, Custard, Toasted Almond, and Treetop. Additionally, some brighter picks also standout for 2015, such as Aquamarine, Strawberry Ice, Tangerine, and Scuba Blue.
Long gone are the days of very matchy-matchy styles when it comes to home design. 2015 trends are seeing even more mixing of eras, as modern and retro come together in a look that is both chic as well as elegant.

Copper and titanium, for example, are popping up all over the place, mixed flawlessly together as accessories in fabulous show homes.

Whether used as a base color and accessorized with bolder and brighter shades, as an accent to lighten and brighten a warm, rich room, or even standalone, neutral hues are a “must have” in home design for 2015.
Whether you are making small changes to the décor, or completely redesigning the whole look of your dining room space, here are some decorating “don’ts” to keep in mind!
