Being a Silestone Trendspotter since 2010, Team KKDL was recently tapped by the NKBA to present at the Sub-Zero/ Wolf showroom in Dallas. On Wednesday evening, Kerrie presented the trends we’re seeing that will emerge in 2015. The gorgeous looks were anything but basic: dramatic blacks, soothing monochromatics, and even exciting tartan fabrics and patterns.
Nature and its benefits have surely come to the forefront of our healthy lifestyles–juicing, Vitamixing and eating organically–and now it is reaching into our interior spaces. Elements of the rainforest and its botanics not only nourish us physically but mentally, too. Green spaces have been incorporated into dense urban environments and as simple backyard garden living as well.
Navy blue is the color of some of KKDL’s favorite things– denim jeans, a classic blue blazer, the lake of the pier and the ocean off of California. It is an inspiring color that we have always been drawn to.
Mad for plaid? We are too! It isn’t just for the holidays anymore–use as an accent fabric or even a wallcovering when you want to bring a modern vibe with a classic twist to your space.
From murals to wall words to over the top graffiti installations, these impactful images draw our attention into a space and hold it for a while. It can communicate a history or a simple message that is received instantly.
From outer space to the deep sea, colors that are supernatural and magical can mix together or stand alone. Influences include the aurora borealis and a rare sequence of “super moons,”–encouraging us to keep us looking high and low for designer cues.
Seeking a sense of calm, we look to nature for inspiration, finding raw beauty and earthy hues and patterns. Organic shapes layer and surround us. Pushing away technology, we find peaceful space in monochromatic environments.
The shade of olive green is warm and organic for almost any other color you pair with it. Use it as a neutral to paint an entire space or just as a small accent piece.
More refined than re-purposed or reclaimed looks for the past few years, this look is sleek, simple and clean using sustainable materials with personality and a certain patina, too.
With the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, the world will crave bold, ethnic-inspired colors, designs and crafts that reflect a Bohemian lifestyle. But today’s wandering nomads aren’t starving artists — they’re fusing the carefree spirit of the gypsy with the sophistication of the jet set.
While in Milan and Barcelona, we found that interior spaces aren’t only featuring mixed materials–say wood and metal for example–they are leveraging multiple uses, too! Sliding countertops, remote island lifts and hidden storage were all represented!
A little texture always adds interest to a space. When done with hide, feathers or fur, an added organic dimension is incorporated, moving your interior from neutral to naturally nouveau.
We treaded in seas of gray for the past few years and now we are moving to a more dramatic tone. Black is the new black, creating contrast, interest and intrigue.
