Top - Interior Design Trends of 2012 

With 2012 in full swing, we’re ready to hone in on all the trends for this year and execute them in our homes; along with some much needed spring-cleaning, of course. Follow these trends of 2012, and your house will be on the forefront of home design.

 Rustic Details

Who says rustic details should be reserved for the lumberjack or mountaineer? This year, interior designers are showing us how rustic details can make a seemingly cold house cozier and more comfortable. If you want to bring a little bit of the country into your home, try adding wood beams to the ceiling of your kitchen. Additionally, exposed stone gives a lodge-like appearance, without looking hokey or contrived.

 Backyards

Design isn’t limited to the interior of your home. With smaller and more eco-friendly houses being built daily, people are transferring much more of their living space out into the great outdoors. Make a lush outdoor oasis by planting different sized plants. Layering different sizes of plants will create a textured appearance. Make room for a water feature, like a fountain, pond, or waterfall. If you live close to the street, a water feature can “drown out” the noises of passing cars (pun intended). Wildflowers can be planted to attract surrounding wildlife, like butterflies and hummingbirds.

 Romantic bedrooms

Put the romance back in your bedroom by revamping the most important room in the house. Luxurious bedrooms are back in style, so feel free to make your bedroom dramatic with multiple patterns, rich fabrics, heavy drapery, and baroque mirrors. Even a bed canopy can be styled to look tasteful when made from thick, white, opaque drapes. Of course, no romantic bedroom is complete without an oversized leather chair, récamier, or an ornate chaise longue.

Take these interior design trends into account when you’re redecorating this year for a house that will look stylish and cutting-edge for years to come.
