Style makers, movers, and shakers, 2015 is going to be a beautiful year, one that is “modern, yet approachable.”

At least, it is according to Zillow Digs, which has announced the top five 2015 trends in their annual Home Trend Forecast, as well as which four fads from 2014 are on their way to the style graveyard.

The top 2015 trends will include cowhide accents in unexpected places, gold fixtures in brighter tones than the past, and wallpaper in all sorts of new styles, textures, and colors.

Style losers include chevron patterns, matchy-match furniture, and the super-saturated colors that have dominated interior palettes for the past few years.

“Home design will embark on a dramatic shift in 2015, moving far away from the bright jewel tones and overused chevron and ikat patterns that took 2014 by storm,” said Kerrie Kelly, Zillow Digs design expert. “Unexpected textures and an eclectic, modern vibe are about to find their way in 2015. Expect to see a more sophisticated look in 2015 that incorporates gold hardware, natural textures, and a subtle midcentury modern undertone.”

The forecast combines data from a survey of leading interior designers and an analysis of the most popular photos on Zillow Digs. Let’s take a look at  these burgeoning 2015 trends, and those on the way out. Click through to see the lists!

You know Midway Hollow is one of my favorite neighborhoods in Dallas—we almost lived there, and now my daughter is eyeing the area for her next move. I would definitely steer her to this honeypot of a renovated cottage at 4047 Glenridge, nice quiet secluded street. The landscaping is to-die for and has what everyone wants: hardwood floors, updated bath, subtle designer colors and warm updates throughout. Love the cool blues (and the SLATE FLOORS!) of the updated kitchen with requisite granite, stainless appliances and clear maple cabinetry. Added bonus is the enclosed porch for an office, craft room or additional storage. And like all Midway Hollow homes, you get a huge, leafy backyard and with this listing, a large deck.

Now I cheated a little here — this home is $225,000 but it is so darn cute. What’s $25,000 when interest rates are so low and … you are young and in love?
