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.

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.

Vivacious reds paired with brilliant turquoise, emerald greens coupled with dazzling gold and pops of bright yellow laced into a backdrop that is distinctly orange; color is an integral part of most eclectic living rooms. Even though most homeowners prefer a more contemporary–eclectic style with grays and whites shaping the backdrop, a more boisterous approach does seem way more fun. Remember that eclectic is a style defined by ‘you’ and not any particular designer or trend. Pick colors that you truly love and paint a picture that is truly spellbinding. A good way to bring together these contrasting hues is by picking furniture with similar shape and outline. This approach works well in most modern–eclectic living spaces and if you want to throw in a curve ball, a tone–on–tone approach to decorating is another great alternative.

Even though the room is a carefully constructed blend of three or four styles, let one of them shine out and dominate the setting. It is often the backdrop, the style of decor and their silhouette that define the design style that is the loudest among the lot. A refined, neutral backdrop with furniture that has clean, straight lines shouts out modern or contemporary, while flowing curves, bold colors and intricate patterns take you to vintage and classic themes.

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.

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!
