Even though 2015 is nearing its’ end, there are still new interior design trends popping up that are defining this year.
Interior design can seem overwhelming, but instead of redoing entire rooms, these ten suggestions from Mady Dahlstrom at Porch.com are simple, easy ways to trend up a home without too much commitment.
Warm metallics. All that glitters is still gold in home decor, with warm metallics adding a bit of glam to any room. Incorporating metallics in your home decor is easy: add copper knobs to your bedroom dresser, hang a copper pendant lamp, or spray paint a succulent planter gold.
Pop of color in the kitchen. From yellow to blue, a pop of color can turn your kitchen into a cheerful and inviting cooking or entertaining space. Don’t stay neutral with your kitchen walls, mix it up this season with a splash of color on your cabinets.
Marble. As a decorative tray or kitchen counter, marble is taking over and you don’t want to miss it. Find out how to make your own jewelry tray out of marble tile, here.
Interesting mirrors. Dress up your space with funky, sparkly, or uniquely shaped mirrors to both open up a space and add a chic touch of character.
Cut crystal. Remember that vintage looking glassware that your grandma used to have? Those cut crystal glasses are making a comeback. Get your own set of decorative glassware to add some glam to your home, like these West Elm glasses.
Pattern on pattern. Don’t just stick to one pattern in your interior design, layer pattern on pattern to mix and match your favorite florals and prints for a stylish setting that makes a statement.
Painted trim. Rather than painting an entire accent wall, paint your baseboards, moulding, or window frames an accent color for a less permanent way to create depth and interest in a room.
Herringbone. Chevron is out, and herringbone is in. Try this trendy pattern on your walls, floor, furniture, or art for a fun new look!
Pastels. As lively as bright colors can be, softer shades of color are becoming more popular. Pale pink, cool blue, and gentle yellow can add vibrance to a room without being too bold. Try mixing sophisticated pastels into your pillows, chairs, side tables, and any other decor item.
Lacquer Lacquer is a multi-layered varnish technique that creates a nice finish on objects such as tables, chairs, trays, and mirrors. You’re sure to stay on trend with this home decor movement that has been reborn endlessly over decades!

Review for Member: Brandy Zimmerman
Brandy was very helpful with a very difficult property to purchase. She was prompt and used her many resources to get the difficult sale to proceed as smoothly as possible. I highly recommend her to anyone that is in the real estate market.
