There’s no time like the present to give your home a new look! Whether you prefer classic or cutting-edge home decor, you’ll want to be familiar with 2016 interior design trends before you get started on your home makeover. This year brings an emphasis on simplicity, softness, and warmth. It’s time to get cozy!
Each year, design industry professionals wait with bated breath to hear what Pantone’s colors of the year will be. We’re in for a bit of a surprise this year with Rose Quartz and powder blue Serenity! Whether you love or hate pastel shades, there are many color pairing options to accompany Rose Quartz and Serenity.
Keep it Curvy
Sharp and industrial are out, calm and curvy are in! If you’re shopping for new furniture this year, keep an eye out for clean, round lines and avoid abrupt or severe designs.
Travel the World
If you have a passion for interior design via world travel, this is your year to shine! Homes with a patchwork of beautifully classic design from around the globe are on trend this year. Particularly trendy are Old World tassels and fringe, Scandinavian weave rugs, and Mayan patterns.
Back in Black
We all know that black goes with everything. And better yet, it’s a classic and easy to keep looking nice! Black metal, particularly stainless steel, is all the rage in 2016. Consider a side table with black metal accents or a black stainless steel refrigerator to give your home a sleeker look.
Smart homes continue gaining popularity. With this comes an inclination toward tech breaks, and technology free (or reduced) living rooms. Consider reducing the emphasis on television in your living room, or remove it all together.
