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.

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.

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.
Bel Langlais,Thursday, June 11th 2015, 06:29:24 AM. An eclectic living room can still have a distinct air of modernity or an undeniably Victorian flair borrowed from an era lost in time. 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.

Desarae Salomon,Sunday, June 07th 2015, 10:53:03 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.
