03 June 2014Trends
2014 has seen some really great mix-ups in interior design. Gone are the soft neutrals of 2013, this year, it’s all about colour, texture and blending! So without further ado, here are the top 11 design trends for 2014 according to some of the most prestigious interior designers.
1. Interchangeable Accents
“We’re seeing a trend towards chameleon decor. Instead of settling on one fixed look, people will opt for a versatile neutral base and use big-impact accents to easily change their decor.” — Arianna Vargas, ariannabelle.com
2. Ushering Glamour
“Move over white walls, in 2014 we’re seeing rooms with a lot more drama and glamour. Dark, moody walls in black will be the perfect backdrop to the metallic accessories that we’re all loving right now.” — Jeanine Hays, aphrochic.com
3. Vintage Wonders
“Thanks to social media, the lifespan of a trend has been cut in half. We’re all a little overexposed. Vintage and one-of-a-kind pieces are highly sought after. It’s the curiosities that make a house a home and keep your guests asking: “Where did you get that?” — Lindsay Souza,thepursuitofstyle.com
4. Say bye to Beige
“Of course colour is the trend story every year in hopes of banishing the boring beige box!” — Christian May, maison21.com
5. Blossoming Prints
“Florals and Chintz: These tried-and-true fabrics are popping up everywhere in fashion and decor. Mix them with other graphic patterns for a modern look.” — Stacey Bewkes, quintessenceblog.com
6. Metal Mash-up
“Mixing and matching metallics, such as silver and gold.” — Devon Dyer, devonrachel.com
7. A need for Navy
“Navy blue is a big trend for 2014. I’m seeing a lot of the shade on the runways, on the streets, in editorials, in chic interiors… I actually think everyone will get it in 2014.” — Mark D. Sikes, markdsikes.com
8. Timeless Design
“A return to tradition. After the long-standing trend of modern and eclectic decor, more people will want to feel comfortable and at ease by returning to traditional styles.” — Erin Gates, elementsofstyleblog.com
9. Innovative Combinations
“Lots and lots of layering: both materials and textures. We love the look of mixing different metals, woods, and fabrics!” — Jennifer Beek and Georgie Hambright, jandgdesign.com
10. A Bevy of Blues
“From rich, saturated colours like navy and indigo to bright, vibrant shades like peacock blue and cobalt, blue will continue to reign supreme in 2014.” — Paloma Contreras,ladolcevitablog.com
11. A softer Black and White
“Black and white is a classic home decor palette but for 2014 it’s softening and feeling more cosy. In the cooler months think Scandinavian chic, while in the summer months think French striped shirts.” — Joanna Hawley, jojotastic.com

What Our Customers are Saying
Jared and Cassandra are hard working, cheerful, honest business partners. They made my experience of choosing carpet and then laying 5 rooms of it simple and convenient. I also had plenty of choice of colour and style from their extensive range. The measure and quote was done in a timely, efficient manner and Jared is very personable. They even quoted, then organised, the shifting and replacement of furniture on the day. I am very impressed with Andersens at Burleigh Heads. Sincerely, thank you both.
