2014 brings masculine influences with cool textures and a monochromic overture to the mix to create a romantic whimsy. Be prepared to see dark kitchens and navy blue walls making a comeback.
Bold geometrics, black and white graphics, tartan, plaid, space-like chandeliers, recycled wood furniture, live edge pieces and gold, gold and more gold will be taking over our interiors.


You are probably thinking this all sound exciting, but how do you take it from a fantasy to a functional space in your home? Follow these tips to help add a little trend to your 2014 space.








Consider a piece with a storySalvaged, recycled and upcycled wood accents continue to grow in popularity. Artemano (http://www.artemano.ca/) incorporates these qualities into their designs. They have created a table for their Railway collection from recycled railway wood that has braved the rain, heat and passing of time that is sure to be a conversation starter! If a larger piece is not your style, try one of their smaller accessories, such as candle holders, bowls or trays that are made from recycled buildings and bridges to add a touch of whimsical to your d├ęcor.


Add a little splash to your back splash – Adding a new backsplash can change the entire look and feel of your kitchen. Made in Canada, Smart Tiles (http://www.thesmarttiles.com/) are an ingenious new budget friendly brand of tiles that are easy to work with. They are self-adhesive and very easy to install, so even if you aren’t a pro, you can add a new backsplash in 2014. Specially designed for kitchen and bathroom environments, Smart Tiles are resistant to both heat and humidity. This year, why not try out some black and white tiles or the timeless subway tile? They come in a range of styles and colours and are also easy to remove - which means you can change the style as often as you want. Adding pops of colour in your accessories will allow you to mix it up year after year.

Touches of colour  - The 2014 Pantone colour of the year is radiance orchid. This colour adds a soft but fun touch to any space.  If you are not sure how to add in this year’s colour to your existing decor, try it in small doses through accent pieces like candle holders, toss cushions, lamps and throws. If you are really bold, paint an accent wall, or even and entire room. If you are having trouble choosing the right shade and matching accessories Para Paints (www.para.com) has a new Colour Forecast Palette and ColourSquare system tool that helps people visualize the colour in their space and the associated colour that will help make their room pop. This year, why not try a feature wall in Para’s Pixie Pop?


Every year a new trend appears; however don’t feel like you need to redo every room completely, the best way to keep up with the trends and save your wallet is to add the trend you love in a small way. Trends are made to be fun so enjoy this year’s new design approach!

Until next time w&c designer girl!
