Unique Style Trump Conformity In 2014The Interior Redecorators Network® (IRN) is observing a sea change in the way Americans are approaching home design in 2014. Rather than maxing out credit cards with purchases of ubiquitous furniture pieces from major retail chains, the majority of homeowners and renters are using their existing furnishings to redecorate, save money and reflect their individuality.

Gone are the days of keeping up with the proverbial Jones' and copying the same design style that everyone in the neighborhood has adopted. In 2014, Americans are interested in making the most of what they already own, or are inheriting, and in having their rooms appear to have been curated over time. In addition, mixing high-end pieces with inexpensive global-inspired accents – "Hi-Low Design" – is allowing for more uncommon approaches to interior decor.

One-of-a-kind furnishings are becoming the most sought-after home design category as budget-minded consumers seek out artwork and accessories that reflect individual interests and lifestyle. Using their existing furnishings and then incorporating family heirlooms, antique and vintage store treasures, pieces from Etsy dealers; consignment stores, flea markets and Craigslist, there are more sources for distinctive looking interiors than ever before.

"No matter where they live, regardless of how big or small their homes are, and whatever their stage of life, people across the U.S. are searching for great value and creating a unique home that reflects their personality," says Lauri Ward, best-selling author and co-founder of the IRN. "The trend started during the Great Recession and has continued to grow even as the economy and real estate markets have improved."
