Creative kids’ organization products are found everywhere from home catalogs to your favorite big box store. Products that organize shoes, toys, and stuffed animals come in fun colors and can double as creative decor around your child’s room. Don’t stop at just color, look for baskets and bins that offer see–through options for quick cleanup and use tags or small chalkboards on baskets to know what is enclosed in them before pulling them off the shelf.

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.

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.

The misconception among many homeowners is that by not committing to any particular style and by randomly putting together your favorite pieces of decor one can create an eclectic living space. This could not be more far off from the truth, as eclectic style demands as much, if not a lot more, discipline than any other decorating style around. Sure, it throws convention out the window, mixes contrasting hues, styles, textures and even eras together in a charming and cheerful setting, but it still needs to be carefully curated. That is the mantra; with an eclectic living room, you are showcasing your effervescent and unique personality in a ‘curated’ fashion. We do not kid when we say that this is a style that is far harder to master than many others simply because there are no set rules and rigidly defined boundaries. It is all about achieving that perfect balance between order and chaos, contrast and cohesion, method and madness.

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.

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.

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.

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!
