Planning new updates to your decor?

So, I am figuring now that I have finished painting every room in the house(over 10 years), that it's time to start over smiley

While I am not a slave to the trends, color choices are of interest to me because it may have some cross over into our soap products.

2014's Hottest Interior Design Trends

The results are in. Patone recently announced the color of the year for 2014, Radiant Orchid, leaving many scrambling to work the vibrant hue into home designs. “The magical, enigmatic purple” (according to Patone) joins other colors paving the way for the latest 2014 interior design trends. Take a look at what’s new:
Color of the Year, Radiant Orchid, Brightens Up Interiors
“Radiant Orchid blooms with confidence and magical warmth that intrigues the eye and sparks the imagination. It is an expressive, creative and embracing purple—one that draws you in with its beguiling charm. A captivating harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones, Radiant Orchid emanates great joy, love and health,” Patone says on its official site. Homeowners are pairing the deep, rich color with muted grays, taupe, and beige; the splash of purple instantly livens up understated color schemes.
Patone adds that Radiant Orchid is the perfect complement for dark greens, or even rich turquoise and teal shades. The color of the year creates an eye-catching accent for details, accessories, and pieces.
Designers Favor High Class -- and Low Cost
Interior designers are embracing regal gold and brass hardware, artwork, and accessories, according to Cedar Valley Home and Garden. Many, moreover, are making the transition to rich golds and elegant brass pieces without breaking the bank.
Paste Magazine explains: “Haute design trends have never been more affordable, thanks to retail innovations including collaborations with famous designers. Stores like Target have upped the ante by providing affordable trends to the masses while they’re still ‘au courant.’ Now, even non-designers are totally in the know.”
Light-Toned Wood Makes a Bold Statement
Light-toned wood is making a comeback. Paste Magazine sheds light on the new trend: “For many years, dark tones like mahogany and cherry dominated the wood furniture market. This year caramel and honey tones will take the spotlight. The softer look blends with any design style and keeps furnishings from feeling heavy or fussy.”

Lightly colored wood, including knotted pine, works nicely with 2014’s other hottest trends. Burnished brass complements light wood particularly well, says Cedar Valley Home and Garden. Radiant Orchid accents paired up with muted light-toned wood also makes a bold statement.

The hottest interior design trends of 2013 pack a lot of promise. Revamp your home. Start with understated colors like grays and taupe or muted wood. Along with rich gold accessories and artwork, add Radiant Orchid accents to complete the look.
