Interior Design Trends: Cowhide And Gold Fixtures Will Be Hot Next Year (Zillow)

Really? Cowhide and gold fixtures? Come on Zillow. Yeah, that’s what they are saying based upon their 2015 Zillow Digs Home Trend Forecast, which they released yesterday. Their forecast is based upon “data from a survey of leading interior design experts and an analysis of the most popular photos on Zillow Digs.” Who am I to argue with design experts?
If they are right then I can think of a lot of home sellers in Oak Brook, sitting on circa 1980 homes, that are finally in luck – at least with their bathrooms.

In case you are too young to know that that’s not me in the bathtub you can roll over the photo for a hint.

As for cowhide…Zillow is talking rugs, pillows, and blankets. Just better hope that PETA doesn’t find out. Frankly, even I’m a bit put off by animal hides in homes. I can’t help but think about how the hide got there. At least with leather seats, belts, and shoes you can’t tell what it used to be.
The other big trends that Zillow sees for 2015 are wallpaper, blue accent colors, and modern/ mid-century modern elements.
