“Home Design Ideas” has been presenting to you some home decor predictions for 2014. We already revealed to you what will be next year’s kitchen trends (click HERE) and the architecture trends for 2014 (click HERE to read them). Now it’s time to find more home decor predictions for 2014, this time given by top interior designers.
If you are the kind of person who loves to be fashionable and to follow the latest trends read on. “Home Design Ideas” will share with you some home decor that will be very popular in 2014.
“For 2014, I see a strong influence of bold, saturated color, like saffron, which conjures a real tropical vibe, yet works just as well to brighten a classic interior. The 18th-century craft of mixing inks to create Venetian marble papers is also becoming a design must-have, adding style to boxes, carpets, dinnerware and wall coverings.”
“I see clean lines being combined with decadent materials such as marble, rich woods, colorful textiles and beautiful finishes to add warmth and interest. Although more ornate shapes will always have a place in design, 2014 is all about keeping the silhouettes simple and unadorned!”
“Rose gold is going to be a big trend this coming year. And neon colors will be used as fun accents in accessories, as well as matte vibrant blue and red.”
“There will be more emphasis on juxtaposing styles, playful takes on classic silhouettes and a deepening pride in local craftsmen and artists.” (This new breed furniture piece epitomizes the idea—it was inspired by French 20th-century furniture design and can be custom painted to suit your space.)
“We will see more organic, floral prints and less geometric patterns. There will be brighter, clearer colors used in the design. Greige is over.”
“People will to continue to embrace the demand and creation of small-batch, artisanal products. We will see more quality handcrafted products for the home through e-commerce sites, pop-up stores and traditional brick-and-mortar. People want to support local designers and makers. These products have real stories and unique designs. Plus, artisan products are a great way to mix in an unexpected component to your home.”
“Macramé wall hangings are a cool alternative to large-scale art or textile wall hangings. Rattan looks fabulous in this mix, as well, since it’s textural and organic and a chic alternative to wood or upholstered pieces.”
“Blue is going to have its much-deserved moment in the spotlight. There are so many beautiful shades—cobalt, cerulean, turquoise, navy, marine—and I’m especially loving Indigo. It looks so fresh paired with white or ivory and has universal appeal.”
“I predict the continued ‘deconstructionist’ Mad Max look will still be forging ahead with every form of raw galvanized metals, bolts, screws and exposed bulbs leading the way. In conjunction with this, I see the angular forms of the ’80s, sleek, more contemporary pieces made of glass, Lucite, and various man-made materials with shinier brass hardware.”
“Specialty cocktails are in vogue and people are enjoying their homes and entertaining more. Expect to see more bar carts, barware and actual bars in homes in the coming year.” (Woodson’s bar favorites? The jazz-inspired Adage line of crystal barware from Hermès and the lacquer-finished bars from Maitland Smith.)
“I think getting back to the basics, for example making the baby’s room look like baby’s rooms, is super-cool. Super-cool is also not following a trend—but doing what you love in your home regardless of the trend.”
These are some home predictions for 2014 revealed by top interior designers. Even if you love to follow every trend, remember that the important thing is to create a space that you really love. Enjoy your decor.

We all have our favorite designers and architects. Some works by certain people make an impact, inspiring us to get to work and recreate some projects in our own houses.
Often in the most prestigious magazines we find a celebrity house styled by a famous and prestigious interior designer, but who are star’s favorites? Whose work inspires celebrity’s like Tom Cruise, Mark Wahlberg, John McEnroe, Sting, and so on?
“Jamie Drake has a remarkable ability to reimagine space. He uses color, texture, unique accents, and creative layouts to make any room at once beautiful and comfortable. Whether he’s designing a new home or breathing new life into a historic treasure like New York City’s Gracie Mansion, Jamie thinks of every detail.”

The experiences we have had with (Tony) Ingrao surpassed all of our expectations. The vision and the opportunities are unparalleled.”
“Martyn (Lawrence Bullard) is an incredible talent with an eye for creating iconic designs. Dee and I admire his ability to combine sophistication with a fun, irreverent take on interiors.”

“We often joke that Jesse and Mara (Carrier and Company Interiors) are like contributing editors to my own private magazine. Both at Vogue and at home, they always bring a grand vision to the table—along with invaluable expertise and an impeccable eye. It continues to amaze me that they managed to turn a series of broken-down barns into a wonderful compound for my family.

“Bill Sofield has the ability to understand the architecture of a space and how to utilize it in the most beautiful way. He can create completely different styles for his clients based on who they are and what their taste is. Our efforts have always been collaborative, and I value what he brings to the table architecturally and aesthetically.”
Studio Sofield devised the interiors for fashion designer Tom Ford’s Madison Avenue store in Manhattan.”
These are just some of the celebrity’s favorite interior designers and architects. Just like they have a preferred style and admire talented people that innovate in the design world.

Interior design light isn’t just to see where you´re going. You can use light and shadows to make your house look stylish, modern, trendy and fun.
In this post i’ll point to you some tricks revealed by A-list designers. You should keep them in mind when you decide to turn you entire house into a more bighter place.
1 – “I use flowers and plants a lot because they really wake up a living room — and then I light them theatrically. I’ll wash a flower arrangement in light, or aim one under a big leaf so that it just glows, as if in sunlight, even if it’s midnight.” — Larry Laslo
2 – “A room should have multiple kinds of light to balance it and give it interest: hanging fixtures with uplights and downlights in them to add perspective, table lamps for tasks, and candlelight for coziness. It’s beautiful to group candles in twos and threes on tables and on window ledges. You can use the fat chunky ones and set them on flat stones or old pieces of wood.” —James Huniford
3- “In a bedroom, you need what I call a love light — a lamp you can dim when you’re feeling amorous. In my bedroom, I have a Noguchi paper standing lamp. I use a 25-watt incandescent bulb — barely any light at all — that goes amber when I put the dimmer on. It gives everyone the golden glow of late afternoon sunshine — that most beautiful light.” —Clodagh
4 – “I love to put a lamp on a long dining table. Clear one end, and put the light and all the food and flowers there. It makes a lovely still life and floods the scene with warmth.” —Barbara Barry
5 -“If you really want to go the distance, have diffusers made for the tops of all your lampshades. A diffuser is a plate that you attach to the lamp itself — we make ours out of sandblasted glass — and it prevents the light from casting a big shadow on the ceiling.” —. J. Randall Powers
Light can be used to give your home a new life. I also found at Delightfull some great ideas and products. Check it out. You will like it
