Have you found a retro graphic print that you want to frame for the nursery, or have fallen in love with a beautiful table lamp that is retro in styling? Nurseries are a great place to display wall art, coordinating lampshades and even matching pendant drum lights make a great focal point for your child’s room. If you are feeling adventurous – how about hand painting a mural or use wall decals in retro colors, graphics, and styles. Accessorizing the nursery with vintage finds like toys, and even heirloom keepsakes handed down from generations look beautiful in shadow boxes hung on the wall. Your baby’s room can combine new and old beautifully in their retro styled nursery.

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.

This common quality could come in the shape of a neutral backdrop, a few bold colors that are repeated throughout the room or geometric symmetry created by the placement of the decor. In small living rooms, make sure you pick a few fundamental elements and repeat them to give the room a more pleasing ambiance.

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.
Celestiel Tardy,Saturday, May 16th 2015, 07:26:18 AM. 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!

It is an addition that works with any style you have going, and by simply altering the frames and photographs on the wall, you can usher in an entirely new look. This obviously makes the gallery wall a perfect addition to the eclectic living room that brings together a fusion of decorating styles. Do not underestimate the value of a wall mural, a picture ledge or even a 3D wall art installation in an eclectic space. It could easily end up becoming the showstopper of your new, vivacious living room.

While we do not believe that trends should always dictate the overall look of your kitchen, you can choose to use them sporadically to get the best out of both long term and short term designing goals. This is especially true for those looking to give their kitchen an entirely new direction without committing to it for decades to come. So, as you browse through these hip kitchen trends, you might well find that last little missing piece that will complete your dream kitchen.

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.
