2011 – A New Year for Interior Design
With 2011 just around the corner it seems like the perfect time to be thinking about which new trends the New Year will bring. A new year always heralds a new vogue, so what will these trends turn out to be over the next coming months? For those of you too impatient to wait, below are what the experts are saying will be key styles throughout the next year.
A decade of the millennium is over, and high end design and contemporary furniture is quickly transporting us into the future, with shining chromes, clean lines and bright whites. There are several key trends that are going to be characteristic in the next year, all of which will add style and elegance to your home.
One of these trends for 2011 is the Lustre trends, which will certainly bring your everyday items into a new decade and add contemporary class to your home. This particular trend is about adding shine and polish to everyday items. TV cabinets, storage units and tables will be glossy and reflective, designed in luminous chromes and silvers. This gives a clean and shining appearance to your living space.
Another key trend for 2011 is colour, the bolder and brasher, the better. The twist on bringing colour into your home in 2011 is that the colour is not limited to key pieces of furniture such as sofas, tables or accessories. Colour in 2011 is meant to inject some fun and unpredictability into your living space. Previously unnoticed objects such as storage boxes and cabinets are streaked with bright and bold blues, oranges and pinks so that colour is used in new and unique ways that makes perfectly functional items, though not key style pieces, become the new focus of your living space.
In contrast to these splashes of bright colour, whites will be a large part of key design trends in 2011. This trend is characterized by expansive white furniture against clean white walls, with the focus again on glossy shines and crisp lines. Once more, complimenting your furniture styles with matching wall colour is changing traditional design rules and bringing us into the future of contemporary design. Also with this trend, mix whites with chromes for a bright, unpolluted feel.
This trend works well when incorporated with others. If one trend is fully followed throughout your home, it may result in a linear style that lacks personality. The key to good design is to incorporate your own character and flair to each trend.
