2015 Home Decor Trends: Part 3-Bathrooms

Hello Everyone!  Cheryl Hucks, your DESIGN INTERPRETER with part 3 of my series on 2015 Home Decor Trends- Bathrooms. I am sure you know that updated kitchens and bathrooms increase the value of your house.  Not planning to sell my house anytime soon, but when I do, I want my bathrooms and kitchen to be updated and become an asset to the sale of my home. Bathrooms are decorated with as much care and attention to detail as any other room in your house. When decorating the master  bath or any other ensuite bathroom, I like to extend the  same color palette and style to the bathroom as the adjoining bedroom.

“The average cost of a bathroom remodel can range between $15,000 and $30,000 depending on the size of the room. While most simple, small bathrooms will fall towards the lower end of that scale, larger spaces such as the master bath can reach upwards of $50,000 or more depending on how extravagant you get with your designs. While the more ornate tiles and elaborate bath fixtures tend to be more expensive, you can get the same look for less if you shop for bargain prices.”  DIY Home.com  Design http://diyhomedesignideas.com/bathroom/index.php?ppc=aw&gclid=CjwKEAiAnLGjBRCk_I-y_4iAmB0SJADGjWWztEhaH2_PwB_NRTSlFNXnTND0M9iAgdbNqItztNIsdRoC1cDw_wcB

1-Gray Walls:  White and beige bathroom walls have been replaced with the new neutral grays. Create your own stunning bathroom with  gray walls, white woodwork, sinks and floors!  There is a gray for everyone-blue gray, green gray, warm brown grays, yellow grays…

2-Clear glass  shower enclosures  will be a hot new trend. Love the Ann Sacks subway tile’s vertical application.  It isn’t cool how the glass seamlessly separates  the shower from the make -up area?

3-Soaking Tubs: For the past  several years garden tubs with a large deck surround have not been on homeowners wish list.  Instead, high end showers with several shower heads are the must have.  Free standing tubs are now on the “must have” list.  Can you imagine how many gallons of water it would require to soak in a tub this size?  If you are a conservationist or just live where there is or could be a water shortage,  soaking tubs require  a huge amount of water!  I prefer this modern shower with the unique shaving sink and mirror inside the shower!  Who would not enjoy this?  I would use the ledge to shave my legs.  On trend: black tile and clear glass.

4-Bathrooms will be about how they make us feel. Bringing nature into our bathrooms by large open windows or tile murals with flowers, clouds, plants. Large elliptical shaped soaking tub.

4- Simplicity: Clean minimalistic.  Glass doors separate the water closet and shower area from tub and vanity. Granite is no longer the only requested counter surface.  Quartz and concrete will also be popular in 2015.

5-Black tile replaces white tile: Nate Burkus designed black tile bath with moleskic marble. Values and plumbing under the sink are pretty enough to be displayed.  I love the look but only if there is bathroom storage.

“2015 Home Decor Trends” Part 1-Color

Hello Everyone! Cheryl Hucks, your DESIGN INTERPRETER, is back from helping decorate my future twin grandchildren’s nursery.   We do not know whether there will two adorable girls or boys or one of each but the suspense will be over in December!  Once we know the sexes, we will add the their names above their cribs and other finishing touches. We framed and matted colorful artwork by the twin’s 10 and 12 yr old  brothers to create a beautiful art wall. I am so excited to welcome my 5th and 6th grandchildren!!

Are you ready to update your home with the  2015  Home Decor Trends”?  Rather than list all the trends in one long blog, I have decided to write a series based on several of the new trends for 2015.  Today’s blog is about “color” which is probably the number one requested trend for any new year. After the Spring High Point Furniture Market I wrote that one of seminars I attended said blue would be one of the hottest color for 2015.  There are many organizations and individuals who give an “educated guess” as to what the new color or group of  colors will be for the following year. Sometimes they all agree but sometimes not.  Pantone  releases their “Color for 2015” in December.  Furniture and accessory  manufacturers must make those “educated guesses” earlier or their products would not be in the stores  or on websites by 2015. Most major paint companies have already made their predictions for 2015.  Benjamin Moore is the only one that has a 2015 Color of the Year.  Sherwin Williams and  Behr have “color palettes”.

Country Living Magazine-Benjamin Moore’s “Guilford Green” HC-116

“Benjamin Moore has made its big announcement: The company’s 2015 Color of the Year is Guilford Green (HC-116), which creative director Ellen O’Neill calls “a neutral that’s natural.” The silvery shade of green is the centerpiece of Benjamin Moore’s color trend story for 2015, a palette of 23 shades of green, blue, blush and berry designed to mixed and matched.   We chose Guilford Green as our 2015 Color of the Year because it can be the hero or the highlight in any room, enhancing the architectural identity of a space,” O’Neill said in a press release. “Guilford Green is the perfect thread to connect nature, spaces, and interiors with color schemes that signify fresh energy and growth.”  

Back in the 90s I used a similar shade of green by Benjamin Moore for several projects.  Every color in my color scheme looked fabulous with the silvery green.  Why? Because the most predominant colors in nature –green, turquoise, blue and yellow- compliment the less occurring colors.

Twist on Blue and White Decor

After the Spring High Point Furniture Market this past April, I blogged that one of the newest color trends for 2015 was blue….royal, cobalt, baby, French, navy are just few beautiful shades that will freshen up your home decor!  The combination of blue and white is classic and historical  that dates back for centuries.  Blue and White is a passion for many!

Blue and white is attention getting  used alone but when paired  with pops of lemon yellow, pear green or zesty red, it can be  magical!
