Interior Design Trends at Ambiente 2014
Typically, designers define four major trends, giving them profound names, expressing the essence of direction. This year, the design of furniture and interior items, textiles, and various household goods must conform to one of the four themes: ” Stunning Temper,” ” Subtle Spirit,” ” Serene Nature” or ” Striking mind”.
Trend #1: Stunning Temper
This whimsical style gives us a great opportunity to express ourselves. Joyful palette includes colors of mignonette (pale green), tangerine, lime, raspberry, apricot, red, and shades of light gray. It welcomes surreal experimentation with materials and forms.
Trend #2: Subtle Spirit
In its quiet restraint this style creates a particularly delicate aesthetic. Interior design is determined by harmony: comfort, warmth, and intimate atmosphere are very important; materials and their processing are performed to the highest standards. Jade, mauve, and matte gold emphasize fine interaction of other colors like midnight blue, eggplant, and pine. Color nuances serve as the backdrop for stylish and elegant pieces of objects, helping them to appear in the best possible way.
Trend #3: Serene Nature
Natural materials, simple shapes and uncomplicated furniture and accessories underline unobtrusive and primal beauty of this style. Pastel colors contribute to an atmosphere of carelessness. The palette includes dark brown, purple, peach, pale shades of gray, sandy, white, and black colors. Items made of natural stone, wood and cork create a smooth transition from the interior to the landscape, blurring the boundaries between home and nature.
Trend #4: Striking Mind
This style is characterized by strong colors and clean lines. In addition to black, white, and bluish-gray you can use such colors as tobacco, blue, and bright yellow, creating strong accents. Monochrome background enhances the effect of colored accents. It is a style of strict geometry, clear contours, and vivid contrasts.
