Upholstery trends for 2014 - revitalise your Prestwick pad
If you've decided to revitalise your Prestwick home, then you have made a big decision! Not many people take the plunge and go for a complete redesign, including new upholstery. Customers often find this a daunting prospect and so, here we have complied some of the key trends for 2014 so you can create the modern interior you want.
It seems that everywhere we turn in 2014, there will be the colour blue but as we know, it is rarely that simple!
The love of water and all of the outdoor elements are making an impression on designers this year, with indigo being the hot colour of the year. In fact, all strong shades of blue are in, with some designers reporting the love for denim being top of their list for 2014. Pair strong blues, including the deep, richness of navy with sandy beiges to keep the upholstery in your Prestwick home on trend.
Choosing a theme? Opt for nautical
A theme that has never really left has been the fresh, bold colours behind a nautical theme but the navy and white colour scheme has been ditched for softer blues, and maybe an off-white. Think an oasis of calm and tranquillity but watch you do not overdress this theme. Rather than having a room awash with anchors and life belts, opt for simpler nautical accessories, with a twist - a rope tie back is sufficient - and certainly a key aspect of a revitalised upholstery for your Prestwick pad.
If nothing else, think luxury AND practicality
On one hand, we associate opulence, sumptuousness and luxury with fabrics and upholstery that is almost untouchable, simply because the choice of fabrics were not practical for day to day living. A fresh wind has blown these cobwebs away with upholstery for your Prestwick pad simply needing to be luxurious and practical too.
And how do you achieve this? By mixing and layering textures. Fluffy cushions, layered on smoother fabrics and maybe a corduroy sofa to give a mix of different feeling fabrics. Upholstery for your Prestwick home should not be flat, but alive and three-dimensional.
Drama and colour not your thing? A 'shaded' room is the other option
Not every customer opt for coloured or pattern upholstery to revitalise their Prestwick home. Beige and creams, along with a sandy undertones are on trend this year and so, if you do not want to opt for the richness of the blue colour palette, take some time to look at the lighter patterned fabrics. Small polka dots and grid patterns are all en vogue.
