Words by Katie Gougeon
Trend for 2014 #1 – Painted out trim
“So long basic baseboards! When using bold hues in articular, painting all of your walls and trim in the same colour eliminates contrast and makes a room feel larger, giving it a sense of full saturation”
Trend for 2014 #2 – Sculptural light fixtures
“We’ve seem the future of lighting, and it’s bright! Moving on from traditional chandeliers with crystals and metal frames, last year’s multiheaded lamps have ushered in even bigger attention seekers.”
Trend for 2014 #3 – Modern Safari
“Well-travelled meets well-designed in the latest wave of globe-trotting inspired accessories for the home. Worn leather, earthy neutrals and functional buckles and straps exemplify thin unfussy yet romantic style. Everything is foldable and totable – perfect for your next glamping excursion”
Trend for 2014 #4 – New geometric
“Move over ikats and trellis prints, the next must-have patterns are reinventions of the classic geo designs. A little less predictable, these faceted patterns are brimming with energy, making historical references to Bauhaus colors and even traditional quilting patterns, and they’re showing up on everything from accessories to wallpaper and fabrics for a big hit of futuristic style”.

Trend for 2014 #5 – Clear Tables
“This year’s standout coffee table is clear (glass or Lucite) with a touch of intricate detail – gold caps or crisscrossed legs that make these pieces feel more complex and mature than their predecessors.”
Trend for 2014 #6 – Pattern Underfoot
“More is more when it comes to floors this year. It’s about finding new ways to recall that long-gone era when flooring was like a work of art(…) Pattern underfoot has been on the scene for a while now, but the trend shows no signs of slowing down, especially in the kitchen” Mamounia Sky rug by Martyn Lawrence Bullard
Trend for 2014 #7 – Woodstock revival
“In the modern Etsy era, crafts, much like clothing, cycle back into fashion, so it was only a matter of time before this retro bohemian style clamoured back onto the scene. (…) The hippie look is making its way into the home, and we think its pretty groovy”
Trend for 2014 #8 – Luxury round bathtubs
Building on the popularity of vessel sinks, the round influence in the bathroom has reached epic proportions with these stunningly simple bathtubs. Reminiscent of hand-thrown pottery, the round tubs tuck nicely into awkward corners or in bay windows and look specially dramatic in the middle of the room. Their organic forms instill a quiet sense of luxury that encourages long, lingering soaks.”
Trend for 2014 #9 – Statement walls
“Building on the large-scale photography trend of recent years, the focus in now on filling our walls with painterly effects. Go big, and bold with an abstract work or commission a romantic hand-painted mural for a unique, refreshing take on the feature wall”
Trend for 2014 #10 – Blu&white table top
“It seems like everyone from European design houses to mainstream retailers has put their own spin on classic blue and white dishware. The latest interpretations are decidedly more modern and less cookie-cutter than the traditional Blue Willow and delftware designs of the past”
These are 10 decor trends for 2014 predicted by Canadian House & Home magazine. Here you have the information you need to keep up with the latest trends and to find new accessories for your home that follow style guide of 2014.
