Whether you're a true trendsetter, or aspire to be, treat your New York home to fashionable home décor in 2014. If you need help determining the most popular trends in home design, take a look at the list below:
- Black & white: The classic black and white color scheme is making a comeback in the home sector, perhaps because of runway influences. As we've seen at this year's award shows, this color combo is often the top outfit of choice for many celebrities. The great thing about this trend is that it is essentially timeless. If you're adding black and white features—whether they be a particular furniture item or custom curtains and drapes—you know they're going to last you a long time.
- Coastal themes: While once reserved for a beach house, nautical patterns and sea-green hues are now making an appearance all over the country. Whether you live in the Hamptons, or are landlocked in the city, try to incorporate this trend into your home décor through the use of coral pillows and sea-shell accessories.
- Mirror, mirror: Mirrors aren't just for hanging on the wall anymore. "Five years ago we saw a sudden flood of the market with mirrored everything, from nightstands, dressers, desks…you name it. We had many problems with low quality and damages back then," Steve Appel, owner of Nouveau Contemporary Goods, told the Baltimore Sun. "Now you will see companies producing transitional to cutting-edge modern case pieces with the mirror being accented as trim around the legs, top and front."
