Welcome to a new year!! In case you have yet to see trends related to interiors, homes, condos, kitchens, bathrooms, and colours for 2015, we’ve compiled a quick summary to get you up to date to start the year off on top of it all. (For further details, simply click on any of the titles or images.)
2015 looks to be strong, but not overly bright. And veering in varying directions. The big four—Pantone,Benjamin Moore, Sherwin-Williams, and AkzoNobel (more commonly known as Dulux)—presented very earthy shades.
Suggested palettes for interiors for 2015 from Pantone, Benjamin Moore, Dulux, Sico, Sherwin-Williams, and Behr.
Retro flare, (living) green walls, flexible design, and style fusion make for a thoughtful, somewhat playful, eclectic mix of trends.
