2014 Trend Setters

January 3, 2014 Updated: January 3, 2014

Want to know what’s hot for 2014? Who better to ask than some of Canada’s trendsetters. These top designers have shared with us their favourite 2014 design trends.

“Bright colour excites and energizes the year ahead, especially when shades take on ‘techno colour’ nuance. From Pantone’s Dazzling Blue to their 2014 colour of the year, Radiant Orchid, deep dark and deliciously immersive rooms intrigue the senses while rich tactile textures such as leather, velvet, and reclaimed wood balance and awaken our sensory stimulation.” — Nicholas Rosaci, Nicholas Rosaci Interiors

“Still trending in 2014 is the use of bright colours. Turquoise, pink, orange, and yellow will be the strongest colours in both upholstery and case goods such as dining tables and cabinets. At the other end of the spectrum, although horrifying to people who remember the 1980s, pale pink, grey, blue, and green will be combined with beige, light woods, and charcoal.” — Jane Lockhart, Jane Lockhart Interior Design

“My favourite trend for 2014 is the resurgence of brass, gold, and warm metal tones. These finishes are showing up again and again in a variety of items from door hardware and plumbing fixtures to lighting and furniture items. Last in vogue in the ‘70s, these ancient metals are speaking to a 21st-century desire for luxury, timelessness, and artisanship.” — Jennifer Heffel, HB Design

“When I look back at 2013, a year of change for many people I know, I feel that 2014 is about solidifying your personal style and buying quality basics for your home, such as a good sofa with wool upholstery, linen bedding, or a finely crafted wood stool—items that will be with you for decades.” — Kelly Deck, Kelly Deck Design

“My favourite 2014 trend is the ‘menswear look’ in home decor (stripes, plaids, houndstooth, and herringbone patterns). Using these patterns in fabric or as a design for back-splashes or flooring is always classic.” — Christine Da Costa, Decor by Christine
