As the weather cools outside, cozy and comfy become the focus of life inside. Here are a few interior design trends that are being used to help designer clients find that type of atmosphere in their homes this fall and winter.A big “Thank you” to BuilderOnline.com for the images and ideas shared here.Painted, Colorful CeilingsCeilings tend to be an underutilized, if not ignored, feature in a majority of homes. Much can be done to draw the eye up and emphasize ceiling height. Accent colors are great but, if that’s too bold, you can consider adjusting the sheen of your client’s ceiling paint to be more reflective, a small change that's an easy way to instantly elevate a space. Those who want to go a step further could consider incorporating different trim details and textures like wood paneling, wallpaper, or brick overlay.Warm Gray CabinetsGray has made a comeback, and it’s not going anywhere. In fact, it’s just been refreshed with new life. When gray cabinetry first made a splash, we saw it paired with cool hues and chrome hardware. Now, we see gray take on a warmer tone, paired with brass hardware in bathrooms and as accent cabinetry in kitchens.Bold-Colored Fabrics and AccessoriesThe design world is moving away from the monochromatic trend – finally! Shades like Pantone’s Minion Yellow are the perfect accent color for any space. We see it brighten up rooms by way of accessories like pillows, blankets, and window treatments. Limiting incorporation of these bold tones to accessories, rather than requiring them to commit to them throughout a room, also gives your clients the flexibility to switch things up down the road.Brick Kitchen BacksplashesBrick backsplashes have taken off like wildfire. Beginning in the southern markets, the idea has gained momentum and made its way north and west over the past year or so. The brick adds a sense of ambiance and can elongate the space by drawing your gaze up when installed from counter to ceiling.Dog-Wash StationsHomebuyers with four-legged friends love having dog wash stations in their homes because it gives them a distinct space where they can conveniently care for their pets, separate from their personal showers and baths. Many home buyers have incorporated these spaces for their pets in laundry rooms and mudrooms where they can keep all of their pet essentials in one place.Looking for more new design trends, marketing tips, and ideas?
