A new year means a fresh start – and a fresh look at interior design trends! I stopped in to Hirshfield’s Design Studio in Minneapolis to talk with Kathy Basil about the trends she is most looking forward to in the new year, including color trends for 2012 and interior design trends for 2012.
First, we talked about color, since color influence just about everything in design. Kathy says to still look for greys to dominate the neutral category, but other than that it’s all about the accent colors. Mustard, tangerine, plum and deep turquoise all stand out beautifully when paired with a grey neutral.
It’s clear that these colors are ones to watch in the new year, as they were popping up all over the Design Studio!
Art takes on a more dimensional look in 2012 with wall sculptures. Kathy describes this trend as a welcome break from flat art pieces. But she cautions that you shouldn’t put wall sculptures in every wall in your house. Just a couple pieces here and there will add enough variety and interest.
