The beginning of 2014 will bring us the trend that Bill calls “The Ancients.” Inspired by Greek and Roman themes, this trend brings back many classical elements of these ancient cultures but in hip, new ways. In addition, there is an overwhelming presence of the ancient warrior, modernized to current times; Bill calls this idea “Roman meets Tron.” Get ready to see plenty of busts, traditional but updated murals, and columns. Also, there will be a return to symmetry to create a timeless, balanced spaces. Finally, on top of the Greek and Roman inspiration, there will be a movement of Egyptian revival headed our way.
Bill refers to the next trend, coming in the second quarter of 2014, as “Frac’d Up!” Characterized by fractal, fragmented elements, this trend will bring about slices, geometric shapes, and elements that look as if they have just exploded. In addition, the circle is back! Anything that can be round, will be round.
