Interior design trends changing for 2011
on Wednesday,February 02,2011 20:02
Many homeowners who have a passion for interior design often follow popular trends and change rooms with the seasons. Philadelphia interior designer Donna Hoffman says there are a few notable changes that decorators can keep in mind to prevent their homes from looking dated over the course of 2011.
Eye-catching patterns have become a popular trend among professional interior designers. Plain, boring wallpaper or flooring can make a room fall flat. Hoffman recommends going for unusual, creative walls and carpeting to make a splash with guests.
Light pastels are also turning up in homes inspired by professional designs. Rather than going for neutral colors, such as beige or brown, Hoffman encourages looking for wall paint in light shades of bold colors. Whites with a hint of pink or blue can maintain the tranquility of a room while adding an intriguing touch.
"Interior design trends evolve in sweeps and arcs, not jarring, abrupt steps," said Hoffman. "This morphing pace essentially keeps trends from feeling threatening."
Individuals who take some of these tips into consideration may become interested in entering a career in the industry. Employment in interior design is expected to increase by 19 percent over the next seven years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
