    Trends come and go. Classics Remain. But as we enter into the high season of home decor each year, we look forward to seeing what is happening in design. It’s always fun to be fresh, so while the basics in your decorating may not change, small things can make a big difference. 

    Robin B Gallery has assembled some of the newest looks for 2014. Come in and see what creative decor we offer and liven up your look for next to nothing!

    Color:

    We love adding a pop of color to add punch to an interior. Through artwork, decor, or even wall color can add a dash of happiness, energy and fun. Here’s Sherwin Williams “Intrinsic” Collection for 2014.

    As seen below, art still remains interesting, even when hung in combination with various styles of work and on a saturated wall color. Blues, especially turquoise and Robin Egg blue, are especially popular.

    Accessories:

    Defining an interior that reflects your personal style is easy to do with accessories. Throws, pillows, books, vases, mirrors, sculpture, ceramics, and art humanize a space and give it that special touch. New trends include natural elements like Hide on Hair and organic textures. And while these design directions seem more classic than trending, natural features are being introduced into all aspects of design.

    Surfaces:

    While natural stone surfaces have been the go to counter product for kitchens, baths, and home furnishings, the trend sees the use of related natural materials such as soapstone, quartz, river rock and agate on the rise. These surfaces offer a variety of looks, from matte to high gloss, tiny particulates to large scale stone. The price ranges vary as much as the finish options.

    Art:

    Art is a very personal expression of one’s interior decor. So while there are not necessarily trends in the purchase of art for the home in 2014, there are certainly overall trends in the art world. One such trend that is currently underway is the new appreciation of original paintings. Because of the mass-produced world that we live in and thanks to the Internet, a surge in wanting an original work of art is becoming more important. It signifies the relevance of owning something that is genuine and expressly unique. From portraits to contemporary abstracts – through paintings, one can add a touch of color, evoke emotion, or express an opinion – all through selection.  Here are some of the favorite art pieces that pull together some of the 2014 trends as seen above.
