Upcoming interior design trends for 2015 - and what they mean for upholstery customers in Johnstone
Every now and then, a fashion or a patterns, colour combinations tec. 'come back around', enjoying a slight modern twist on their previous life some decades before; for example, 2014 was the year for monochrome but rather than harking back completely to the 1960s, this colour combination of black and white was given a third 'barely there' colour, in most cases a dusky pink.
Similar trends, interior designers predict, will all the rage in 2015 but how do Johnstone upholstery customer pull all these strands together?
One great trend for the upcoming year is the mixing of the new with the old, in a coherent way. Look for soft, curved lines with organic shapes and muted colour schemes. But, ring the changes with a gentle clash between the older style patterned materials, with the new. Your overall aim with this style is to create a comfortable space for living and relaxing.
Upholstery choices - opt for 'traditional' heavy patterned fabrics but with a modern twist of bright, yet earthy colours.
Salvaged and upcycled!
There is also a growing design emphasis on the materials being used within the home - and not just upholstery fabrics! - that are upcycled or salvaged. Living greener is becoming a staple fashion choice. There has never been a better time to keep hold of an item of furniture and either salvage it with repair and re-upholstery, or use its component parts to create something new.
Either way, there is room in every Johnstone home for living greener…
Modern and minimalist
For those Johnstone upholstery customers that want minimalist and modern, then this is a trend that never wanes - only the colours and accessories change! 2015 is looking to the grey palette, with hints of 'gentle' black and creamy, off-white tones. But again, make sure that any starkness and 'clinical' look is avoided by a careful choice of a deeper tone of another colour; pink is great, as is a deeper, rich purple tone. Ultra-modern 2015 interiors with a minimalist style will, somewhere within it, have a rich blue tone…
If you like the quirky, angular patterns that were prominent in the 80s, the good news is they have a made a comeback, but with a twist. The edges need to be softened of these geometric prints and you will find that many of the upholstery fabrics to create this 2015 look in your Johnstone home are earthy tones - the greens, the golden yellows, the hints of sunrise orange and a sweep of black, purely as an accent.
Keep accessories plain, but in keeping with the main colour scheme and you have the perfect retro, and romantic upholstered interior…
