After a year as stylish as 2015, it’s hard to imagine that anything could top it. But we have put together our predictions of the biggest design trends of the upcoming year.
Shine bright like a diamond
2016 is your home’s chance to shine with a touch of metallic, be it copper, brass or bronze. Metallics should be used to accent the home with things like brushed brass side tables, copper bar stool through to candle jars.
Colours are deep and moody
Dulux recently declared 2016 is the year of moody shades, futuristic inspiration and throwbacks to times past. From romantic dusty pinks to dark and moody blues, 2016 colour trends are sure to have something to suit all tastes.
Artisan accent pieces
Travel souvenirs, unique artisan pieces and market finds will take centre stage in home design as more homeowners gravitate toward decorating with unique art pieces that tell a story.
Mix and match
The latest idea of ‘mismatching’ your kitchen cabinets has become a fast growing trend – it allows us the freedom of a more informal, edgy look, but one that is built upon a base of good quality, solid cabinetry and materials.
Texture with textiles
Colour and pattern definitely make a statement. Texture may not be as obvious, but the impact can be just as dramatic. Make conscious choices about how and where you add texture and your decor will thank you.
