● By Style
1/Walls That Talk
Wall coverings aren't solely for your grandmother’s house anymore. Textural stimulation is evident with the new papers in the marketplace today—everything from feathers, crystals, leather, velvet and more. The elegant touch adds to any entry wall or master bedroom headboard wall, and creates a great mood setter.
Simply buy a pillow that has metal accents and toss on your favorite chair to bring a blingy touch to your space. Many orbs and sculptures are also offered in several types of metal; brass, silver and rose hues with interesting movement can add an eye-catching statement. In terms of placement, consider any open shelves, a sofa table or Bombay chest.
3/Into the Woods
Mixing several types of woods—from maple, rosewood and walnut to many exotics—can create warmth and interest in headboards and coffee tables throughout your home. Many people will ask for one particular wood to set the tone in their space, but the trend for 2015 is to break the rules and mix several to create a style that reflects you.
4/Call of the Wild
Create a faux fur experience and add softness to any wood statement chair, or simply toss at the foot of your bed. Once you add pillows or throws made from wolf, curly Mongolian, polar bear or alpaca, you’ll have the desire to curl up, grab a book and stay a while.
Bar carts add style and function to any home that likes to entertain. Glass and metal have openness for small spaces or an unused wall. Grab a drink, sit back, and admire the must-haves of 2015.
6/Light up Your Life
Hand-blown glass is the light of the future. Being able to bring metal structure and art together with colorful glass has turned task lighting into your home’s jewelry. Places to not be in the dark include the dining room, pendants above an island, or an entryway. To add even more luxury and clear space, try swapping out your side bed lamp for a hanging pendant.
