Warmth of Creativity

Warmth does not only come from heat fixtures and fireplaces; it comes from upholstery and color choices too!

Here at Divine Interiors, we love our seasonal colors. If you’re not looking to reupholster or change your entire space, consider holiday-friendly accessories. This makes the transition after your holiday celebrations that much easier!

Take these candle holders for example, a true compliment on light or dark woods. With a shimmery gold or red candle on top, these will really add heat to your holiday and pizazz to the room! Come spring, these solid-wood candle holders can be topped with playful colors such as peach or yellow to match the season!

Imagine simply having to replace your spring colored candles with light blue or other beach friendly colors to give your home that Summer-time look! These candle holders would do great as a centerpiece, on a side-table, or even separated around your living room furniture.

This fun asymmetrical candle holder would be a beautiful compliment to winter decor. These make a wonderful addition to any room that is already booming with color or pattern!

Interior Design Trends for 2014

TRENDS

1. Macramé and fiber-art wall hangings:

SONY DSC“It’s sculpture for your wall that adds texture and replaces wallpaper or fine art you can’t afford,” said Ms. Burnham. “And we haven’t seen it since the 1970s. I think it’s time.” Early adopters include the Ace Hotel chain and architect Barbara Bestor.

 

 

2. Window sheers:

The popularity of heavy drapes is drooping. “Everyone wants greater transparency and more light,” observed New York designer Celerie Kemble. And “sheers are no longer granny-ish and polyester,” said Los Angeles designer Kim Alexandriuk. “The new ones in linen and wool look rich.”

 

 

3. Corduroy upholstery:

“It’s the casual alternative to velvet and the preppy version of chenille,” said Ms. Burnham, whose library sofa is olive-green corduroy. Mr. Harte, who used Etro’s “hip and vibrant” purple corduroy on a gold-leafed bergère, is also a fan: “It looks really cool on formal chairs.” The wider the wale, the gutsier the statement.


 

 

4. Venetian marbled-paper prints:

Mr. Bullard noted that the prints are seeing a renaissance on “everything from the chicest of wallpaper to finely silk-screened linens and gold-leafed porcelain.”

 

 

 

5. Deco hues:

Color has been nudging gray and greige out of the picture, but, for many decorators, bright primary shades can still feel uncouth.
