    Five Trends to Watch in 2014

    Mix and Match

    Mix and Match

    Unexpected combinations of materials can be seen everywhere this year. Designers are mixing gold and chrome finishes, creating colour palettes using contrasting colours, mixing stripes with floral prints, and combining vintage and modern pieces. Layering finishes, colours and patterns can be tricky but the end result creates a room that exudes personality, texture and visual interest. In this space, fresh white walls and wood-framed WeatherGard Series windows from All Weather Windows create the perfect backdrop for combining colour and texture. The white and black colour scheme is warmed up with wood tones and yellow-gold accent pillows.

    Animal Prints as Neutrals

    Animal prints are the hot neutral for 2014! These prints can be used as neutrals while still bringing texture and visual interest to a room. Animal prints in monochromatic colour schemes are replacing traditional neutral colours in furniture, accessories and wall coverings!

    Dipped Legs

    This simple design idea is very trendy and easy to incorporate into your decor and you don’t even have to replace your current furniture pieces. Just dip their legs in paint! This trend is a great way to give old pieces new life and add visual interest to chairs, coffee tables, side tables, dining tables or anything with a straight leg!

    Tie Dye

    As retro styles and patterns appear in home furnishings, you can expect to see an infusion of tie dye fabrics. With tie dye inspired patterns popping up on everything from throw pillows to sofas, this trend lets you add an exciting splash of colour and personality to a space.

    Painted Doors

    Painted Doors

    A painted door in an unexpected colour gives the exterior of your home an instant facelift! Replace your boring neutral front door with a bright, vibrant coloured front door to create a trendy look. While painted doors in bright reds and yellows have become quite common, why not try this year’s colour of the year, Radiant Orchid, for a fresh new look? Shown here: All Weather Windows front entry door in Radiant Orchid with sidelites (transom and Naples decorative glass).
