2008 Interior Design Trends - Invidia
'Invidia' is the must have interior style of 2008/2009. Taking its influences from the 80's, this 'Black on Black' styling is ultra cool and a sign of true taste. Using blacks with metallics such as gold and bronze, the interiors are brought to life with flashes of colour. The only real draw back to such a room is only doing half a job. Attempting to turn 'Invidia' into a feature wall rather than the whole room will ruin the flow.
Furniture, as with all interiors is as important as the colours you've chosen. Leather and velvet are the material of choice, and dark shades such as black or dark purple work well with the dark wall, however, black leather chairs with brushed aluminium legs and arm rests work really well and the metal finish adds depth.
As for accessories, big and bold works well. Huge mirrors with gold frames, large retro canvas prints with flashes of yellows and pinks with black can add warmth to the room. Or to show how trendy you are, take some stencil art and hang it in a classic oversized Gold leaf frame.The best thing about this scheme is the ability to be as bold as your willing to go, really push the boat out.
