Modern Rustic Interior Design

11Modern Rustic is an interior design style that will be very popular this year. The style is so adaptable for many different homes. Modern Rustic blends charming rustic styles with sleek modern designs and functionality. Rustic designs have been popular for many years, and adding modern functionality will make this style stay and evolve for many years to come. The most important part of having a modern rustic space in your home is to have an open floor plan. The open floor plan will allow the rustic flooring and decor to be shown off well with the modern elements in the room.
One of the main components to creating a modern rustic design is to bring the quality of natural materials such as wood and stone inside the home. Wood panels or other natural wall coverings such as stone will create a stunning natural look to the room. If wood panels are too expensive, then there are many realistic-looking wallpapers that have wood or stone patterns.
The most important feature of the room is the flooring. The floor is an essential part of making the design work. For a modern rustic look, you should use flooring that provides a strong, rustic finish that has different weathered visuals. You can use stone patterned flooring or wood patterns that look weathered or aged. Vinyl, luxury vinyl tile, or hardwood will work great for this type of design. Since the flooring and walls will have a rustic theme, the furniture and appliances in the room should have a modern theme. For living rooms, use more sixties and seventies style modern, and with kitchens and dining areas, use ultramodern furniture and appliances.33
For a modern rustic design, you should also make sure that the upholstery and different accent pieces in the room also feature the rustic and modern aspects. The large pieces of furniture should have a neutral tone, and the cushions should be made of natural, non-dyed fabrics. Also, the more natural light the room has, the better the design will work.

Color Trends of 2015

Marsala and grey are the main colors for 2015, but there are also a few other colors that are going to be popular this year in interior design.

navy
Last year’s color, English Royal Navy, remains a top color this year even though it was last year’s color. Navy is a classic color, just like grey, because it offers a timeless appeal to any home and design. Navy is also a universal color because it goes with so many other colors, so you can pair it with any furniture or accent pieces in your home.
Indian Ocean Teal is another color that will be popular this year. This color serves as a bridge color between the cool, light water colors that are already prevalent in many homes and the dark tones of classic navy or even black. This rich color will also add a nice look to any home.

1V15-509
Another color that will be used in many interior designs this year is British Racing Green. This color can be a playful, preppy, and youthful addition or accent in your home. The color is Coral, which is going to be a very popular color this year. You can use just a small splash of this color in your home, and it will immediately liven up the place.
You can use all of these colors in your home without having to paint the walls or re-do the entire flooring. Just adding rugs, throw pillows, accent pieces, or wall art will be enough to bring these beautiful colors to life in your home. The best part about all of these colors is that they can be paired with grey or Marsala.

Armstrong Receives Good Design Award for Architectural Remnants

manufacture_35brand_490

Armstrong recently announced that the Architectural Remnants laminate flooring collection has taken top honors in the 2014 Good Design Awards. The Good Design is one of the world’s most recognized, prestigious, and oldest Design Awards program. It is organized annually by The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design in cooperation with the European Center for Architecture, Art, Design, and Urban Studies.
Architectural Remnants is a collection that combines multiple species and colors that look as if they have withstood years of use or if they were pulled from a historic structure. The collection is available in random widths, and the products have the look of realistic graining, texture, and depth of reclaimed wood. The laminate flooring also has a 50 year residential warranty, VisionGuard, and Hydracore Plus. VisionGuard helps protect the floor’s surface from staining, fading, and wear-through. Hydracore Plus is a solid core built into the middle of the laminate, which allows the product to feel more like hardwood.

The building is located within the design district, and the space occupies 5,500 square feet of premium property. The new showroom is designed to inspire and inform the design professionals that are using the space.

Also, the exterior signage is integrated into the exterior patio that serves as a seating area during events.
The company designed the space based on the experience of awakening the senses. Each feature in the building is sculptural, interconnected, and thought-provoking. The staircase is modeled after a carpet loom and it creates a platform for viewing products. A fiber installation, called Sense of Sight, celebrates the vibrant colors that Shaw Contract Group is known for and it encourages designers to color outside the lines.
Businesses and organizations that impact the Atlanta economy will now have access to this creative space.
