INTERIOR DESIGN TRENDS FOR 2016

INTERIOR DESIGN TRENDS FOR 2016

Every year has its own interior design trends, and 2016 is shaping up to be no exception.  Below are our top 3 picks to inspire you as we head into Spring!

MIXED METALS

Gold and silver can be friends in our book.  Platinum, gold, copper, steel, rose gold, brushed bronze – as long as they’ve got metallic sheen, they can work together.  Dip your toe in with mixing frame colors on a gallery wall.  Or separate through height, cluster silver items in one area and gold in another.  Or go for the big bling:  in an already dramatic room – bold items just add more to the mix.

BRING THE OUTSIDE IN

Bringing nature closer to your home is beautiful, calming, and healthy, too.  Projects for this year are filled with natural elements like cork, wood, stone, and raw concrete.  Plants are everywhere, from small table-gardens, to living walls, to groupings of small pots on a side table.  And don’t worry – if you have less than a green thumb faux greenery has come a long way. Also, think about the relaxed use of outdoor furniture indoors – like rattan – or indoor furniture outdoors.

BOLD BLUES

Indigo shades such as cobalt, navy and royal blue are the hues to use for the upcoming year.  These colors are versatile and can be used in most areas:  living, kitchen, dining room, bedrooms, and outdoors.  Consider a new coat of navy to bring drama to your living room.  But you don’t need to go all out, adding a pop of blue as an accent piece is a great way to stay current without a major commitment.  Or you can be brave and paint walls, crown, and base board all the same hue for a monochromatic, high impact look.
