The idea of the kitchen being the heart and soul of the house has been taken a step further in 2014 with the popularity of the social kitchen. Turning the traditional kitchen into a family–friendly hub that promotes interaction and creates a fun hangout, the concept blurs the boundaries between the kitchen and the areas around it. Adding an extended breakfast nook in the kitchen, a small banquet in that lonely forgotten kitchen corner or even a cozy tufted bench next to the window is a great start in getting this accomplished. The idea is to ensure that every member of your family feels comfortable hanging out in the kitchen. One can even add a small workstation or kids’ play area next to the kitchen so that no one is left out. The shape and the ultimate design of a true social kitchen depend on the specific needs of your family. So get creative and make the best use of available space to turn the kitchen into a hip and happening spot in 2015!

Geo pendants are a popular choice for modern dining spaces. A brass pendant with retro style can create a sense of elegance and drama, especially when the walls of the dining room are painted a deep, rich color. or a tropical touch, opt for a pendant light made from natural materials. This Kenaf Pendant Lamp from Anthropologie steals the show with its earthy look. Throw in an abundance of plants, and you have a breezy space where it’s summer year round!

Table or pendant lamps are a great place to start. Match lampshades with surrounding decorative colors and then mimic these colors in window treatments, bedding, and area rugs. Area rugs are a creative way to bring a burst of color and can change seasonally or whenever your little one gets them dirty! Another great idea is to take colors found in the decor and frame pictures of the same materials or colors. This bedroom has used the orange, purple, and green as the theme and utilized color blocking in the textiles as well as the wall decorations. This is a simple way to infuse colors in a multitude of ways.

It has been a season of warm metallic hues with gold, copper and bronze replacing the usual suspects such as silver and chrome. This trend has made a significant impact in both the world of fashion and the world of interior design, and expect it to continue on this merry path all through 2015 as well. For the kitchen, think of faucets and fixtures in bright golden hues to bring a dash of luxury without going over the top. Lighting fixtures such as the Tom Dixon pendants in shiny copper are also a great choice.

It is an understandable phenomenon with contemporary style influencing many of the designs. White also lets the accent hues that you add to the space shine that much brighter! But over the past few years, the color spectrum has slowly started moving towards the other end, and this year gray began taking over. In 2015, we go a step further with black becoming the sought–after shade in the kitchen. Black brings an air of sophistication to the kitchen and gives it a sleek, bold aura. If you are not too happy about using black extensively and feel it turns the kitchen into a sterile space, then use it to highlight details and anchor a kitchen that is draped in cool neutrals. Black cuts across different styles ranging from farmhouse and industrial to contemporary and minimal. And for those who prefer a more timeless look, there is always the option of a classy black and white kitchen.

Whether you choose a round or rectangular dining room table, keep in mind that this is a place around which friends and family will gather for food, drink and conversation for hours at a time. As such, it does not need to be over dressed. Dining tables with too many settings and centerpieces can look cheap and cluttered.

Some nights you may prefer a romantic candlelight dinner while other occasions may call for heavier lighting. Consider a chandelier with a dimmer as well as smaller side lamps or wall sconces. Also, remember that your choice of lighting fixture is yet another way to show off your personal decor tastes.

Yet there are many different ways to go eclectic while allowing the style to blend in nicely with the rest of your more modern home. An eclectic living room, especially a small one, need not be filled with furniture and accessories beyond necessity. In small living rooms, try and choose a bold couch, a coffee table with a metallic glint and a plush rug with a splash of color to create the same visual impact while keeping the space visually uncluttered.
