2016 Design Trends



When entering the new year we all want a fresh start! What better way than re-vamping your interior spaces, whether it be your home or office? A newly decorated environment can inspire you and even motivate you. Here are the interior & home design trends to keep you up to date for 2016! 

One of the biggest trends this year, when it comes to your home, is mixing materials. A combination of marble & metals or raw wood & tile can create an eclectic vibe with a personal touch. This applies to anything from your kitchen back-splash and counter tops to your bedroom furniture. 

Another upcoming trend for 2016 is graphic wallpapers and fabric wall art. You can now make an even greater statement with that piece of art or photograph by turning it into a mural for your dining room or bathroom. Geometric patterns and striking colors are a hot trend as well when it comes to picking your wallpaper. Don’t be shy, apply it to all four walls for a sophisticated and rich look!

Recycling furniture/decor is environmentally friendly and fun! Turn an old antique dresser into a more modern piece by painting it a vibrant color or even a glossy black. Up-cycle your dining room chairs by reupholstering the seats in a custom printed fabric. 

With the technology available in 2016, you can now print on a variety of materials including glass, acrylic, wood, tile, metals and fabric. Print on your glass coffee table, commercial ikea furniture or bathroom shower panels for a personalized home look. 

Some more trends include: tropical/ floral looks, warm metals, and outdoor fabrics used inside. Don't forget PANTONE color of the year - Serenity & Rose Quartz which will surely inspire pastel looks for the home.
