As we enter the end of the first week of the new year, the time has come for everyone’s favorite topic of 2012–New Year’s Resolutions! The new year rings in with a series of ball drops, champagne toasts, smooching, and major life changes bound by the promise to make this year better than the last. What better way to make such serious life changes than to rearrange that living space for a fresh, new, modern look that will sing “Auld Lang Syne” all year long.
Here are our top interior design resolutions for 2012:
Bold Color Choices
2012 is all about making serious statements with splashing color options. Modern interior design for the coming year has future trends of bold color pops to liven that living space. Going all out with fierce eye-catching color options such as vibrant hues of yellows, oranges, aquas, and grassy greens will draw out the old and ring in the new with sleek and sophisticated touches of modernity.
Drop Those Extra Pounds (Minimalist Design)
Minimalist design has been serving serious face as we progress into the stylings and design of the future. Shed those extra tchotchkes, unwarranted decorative elements, and bulk-tastic pieces of furniture that serve absolutely no purpose. The key to minimalist design is to really hone in on functional pieces you can’t live without and purge, purge, purge like there’s no tomorrow. AND, as the world is supposedly going to end (again) in 2012, there may not be a tomorrow. So, go out with a serious bang of style and ferocious furnishings.
Healthy Life Choices (Eco-Friendly Design)
The 2000’s saw a major boom in sustainability and green design options. However, with the emergence of a failing economy, looks were far lost to the ideas of yesteryear axing all kinds of superfluous design options. That being said, 2012 is all about bringing light back into the world once forgot of eco-friendly options. Including recycled wood options into that dining room or coffee table is all the rage as we process deeper into the year on luxe and fine living. Designers are offering numerous choice options that strictly adhere to the trends of tomorrow. Not to mention, sustainable home decor will make lasting decisions that will withstand the test of time contingent on the world not ending in mother nature unleashing a fury of elemental carnage.
