TREND WATCH: Favourites for 2014

As you can imagine, being the online editor for a national decor magazine, I am inundated with trend reports and predictions at this time of year. Incorporating all the trends into your decor each year would be impossible! If you are looking to update your decor with some of this year’s hottest trends, I suggest choosing a few of your favourites and sticking to those. Here are some of my favourites for 2014!

Mix and Match

Unexpected or untraditional combinations are everywhere this year. Designers are mixing gold and silver finishes, creating colour palettes that blend together contrasting colours, using stripes with florals, combining vintage with modern, etc. Layering finishes, colours and patterns can be tricky but the result is a room with personality, texture and visual interest when done correctly. In this space, fresh white walls and wood-framed WeatherGard Series windows from All Weather Windows create the perfect backdrop for combining colours and textures. The crisp, modern blacks and silvers are warmed up by the wood finishes and yellow-gold accent pillows.
